You can use the search box in the timeline panel for effects and layer properties.
I don't know who labeled your post as a "correct answer". Yes, you did indeed correctly answer one of my questions, but the heart of the matter was left unsolved.
Nevertheless, Adobe After Effects Version 18.104.22.168 was the problem. Stupid updates wasting my time and money. Annoying.
Reverting to 22.214.171.124 made everything work like a charm. Adobe After Effects: don't lie to me and tell me I have memory problems, when it's your issue. Thanks for costing me a few hundred bucks. God I love being on a high horse. I'm bitter and entitled. Deal with it.
I would have addressed the heart of your matter, but I can't access Flickr at work to see your error messages. (You can upload them directly to these forums in the future.)
If it's a bug in 13.2 that caused the problem (and it certainly sounds like it is), I'm sure the AE team would really like to know about it so that it doesn't carry over into future versions. Please, help us all! Adobe - Feature Request/Bug Report Form
Any idea how frequently Adobe update there AE software? Ive got alot of projects coming up where im going to need AE CC 2015 working... ive filed a bug report and had nothing back.
Adobe says there is an update scheduled for sometime this "fall", so that could be any time between September 21 and December 21.
However, you can download other versions of AE through the Creative Cloud if CC 2015 isn't working for you. How to Find and Install Previous Version of Adobe Apps in CC 2015
I know a lot of people are using CC 2014 until CC 2015 gets another update.
