How do we go back a version? is it possible with the cloud package? the space bar timeline and audio pre render has driven our studio mad today. it has to go.
Yes, you CAN revert to AE CC 2014. It's available on the cloud. Unfortunately, if you weren't watching what you were doing when installing AE CC 2015, it automatically deleted your previous versions. Wasn't it nice of Adobe to set it up that way?
Luckily, it's easy to reinstall older versions: How to Find and Install Previous Version of Adobe Apps in CC 2015
Audio does not export
Big dumb bug. Will be fixed in next month's update according to Adobe folks.
Space bar for time line is a real pain, double tapping and not stopping (yes I have changed its use in the preview panel).
The new previewing system certainly needs some tweaks. It has significantly improved behavior in next month's update according to this post: What’s new and changed in the upcoming update to After Effects CC 2015 So I'm really looking forward to that release.
Rendering the timeline to check audio and video I now have to listen to the audio scrubbing as it slowly renders, meaning we have to turn speakers off until it plays back.
Pretty sure there's a checkbox to shut off audio if a preview is not real-time.
Our studio will be going back to the older version, as this version is frustrating and and not thought through by Adobe,
Understandable! CC 2015 has some significant under-the-hood changes - bigger even then the change from 32-bit to 64-bit in CS5! For me, CC 2015 is significantly faster to work with, so I'm sticking with it for my freelance work, but there are some really irritating issues for many folks.
Hopefully, next month's update will fix a lot of these issues without introducing too many others.
So regarding the audio bug? how are we supposed to export videos from media encoder???
Going through Media Encoder should produce audio.
Rendering from AE's render queue will produce audio if it's rendered as a QuickTime.
In general, I don't tend to even bother with audio in AE anyway. I'm usually putting my AE stuff in a Premiere Pro project where the audio sits.
I agree, the uninterrupted playback has introduced a load of bugs while adding a feature that wasn't really in anyone's top 10 wishlist. Or at least among the motion designers I've spoken to/worked with in the last few months - nobody has responded positively on this change.
If it worked, ie if cached frames would play in actual real time, if it had some kind of cuda/ocl capacity or at least getting nvidia's optix back in to lift some of the work off the cpu - it could be great. But there's a lot of work left to do - I guess we're all now beta testers!
