No multi-core rendering?
Sorry to have to say that audio playback is STILL not working properly during RAM previews. How can these updates be released with such basic functionality just broken? It takes 1-2 seconds for audio to start playing AFTER the RAM preview starts playing. It's simply impossible to time animation to audio this way.
Well at least "CTRL-Z" still works....oh wait.
It's disheartening to say the least. I gave Adobe the benefit of the doubt earlier because they did communicate they were aware of the issues and working on them. And yes, several issues have been improved, also in this update (the RAM preview behaviour and controls and improved from the previous version and it's now possible to have it function like "old" RAM preview again, which is great). But this is the second big update for CC2015 and core functionality is just broken. Are we to believe that no-one at Adobe during testing noticed an issue like this? Or the undo issues? And if they did, whose call is it to release software in this state anyway? They should really stick a "beta" sign on the whole AE CC2015 release and be honest about it and stop wasting everyone's time.
AE stands for "Alpha Edition"
beta software is feature and functionality complete, generally speaking.
alpha software is not.
AE 2015 is not anywhere near feature complete. The lack of MP rendering, the single most important aspect of production, should dissuade anyone from using it. But Adobe, as you rightly point out, are misleading people into thinking this is complete software.
AE might also be an abbreviation for "Arrogant Engineers", "Adobe's Exceptionalism", "Absorbed Entitlement" or "Another Excuse"
Yes...disheartening to say the least.
Someone should lose his job. The entire CC AE 2015 is a set of fundamental error that should not appear. Seriously, you should return the money to subscribers...
"Only when the last tree has died, and the last river been poisoned, and the last fish been caught - will we realise we cannot eat money"
This is the deal here...
Adobe do not give a rats whether the software works. They're on easy street.
They've already been paid!
Subscription model means that we, as consumers, have little bargaining power here. Why would Adobe need to make good software? They don't. They're not accountable because...
They've already been paid!
The only resolve would be if a mass chunk of Adobe subscribers left in disgust, and made it clear that dodgy, bug ridden, core functionality broken software, was the cause.
But we won't. Because we depend on the products for our livelihoods.
Adobe knows it...
And sadly, they're exploiting it.
Where is your sense of pride in your product Adobe?
Oh yeah, that's right...
You've already been paid...
Shame on Adobe for even releasing AE CC 2015. How could you possibly remove features such as multi-core rendering? How can you have a bug that is as big as Ctrl + Z not working?
It is sincerely a disappointment and it disgusts me that they think it is even okay to release a product in this state.
I don't even understand how you can release a new version of After Effects where rendering takes 5-6x LONGER than the previous version.
Thank you, Todd_Kopriva and Adobe Team!
