    Latest After Effects CC 2017 Offset changed / Is not working

    snugb-art

      Hello all - I noticed that in the latest After Effects (and Premier) that when using the Offset effect with scaling, scaling (or zooming) does not use the center point as the anchor point. It has moved to the top left corner of the footage.

       

      To test, 1.) grab any footage 2.) add offset to the clip 3.) set a keyframe with scaling 100% 4.) set another keyframe later with scaling 200%

       

      You'll notice that it zooms to the top left corner. In the previous version, it would zoom to the center of the footage. I noticed because I had saved a preset animation that used to work perfectly, but after the update, stopped working. The effect is described in this video (Sam Kolder smooth ZOOM transition tutorial (free) - YouTube )

       

      Finally, when I render out an AE comp with Offset enabled, Media Encoder fails to encode with the following error.

      It seems like something got hosed with the Offset effect in the latest release.
