What exact version of AE are you using? There were some jpg issues that got bugged in a recent update and then mostly fixed in another one.
I'm using 18.104.22.168. I am gonna update to the latest version and see wether it solves my issue or not.
Let us know if it helps!
No, it does not work neither. I am making the test with AE 22.214.171.124, I think it's the latest version.
It's the same bug... If I replace the JPG footage on my disk and then try to "reload footage", AE won't reload the content, it will preview and render the old image instead of the new one.
I also have AE CC 2014 (126.96.36.199) and it works perfectly, once I replace the footage on disk and click on "reload footage", AE shows the new image, so it seems to be an AE CC 2017 issue.
Thanks for your time
Are you still facing this problem? If not, let us know how you solved it. If so, please let us know so we can assist you further.
No, I was not able to solve the issue with After Effects CC 2017, I had to downgrade to After Effects CC 2014, as it works correctly in that version.
I filled in a bug report for AE CC 2017, but I never received any email or confirmation about the issue.
