AE bug on showing layer controls on comp viewer
on Apr 13, 2018 at 11:34:53 am

Hello, sorry for my english i'm french..

Since i made the new after effect update, i have a serious issue and i can't figure out how to change it.

After a few minutes working on any AE project, my layer outlines (nulls, masks, shape layers and any layers borders) disappear sometimes blinking as i move my pointer, sometimes completely.

"SHOW LAYER OUTLINES" option is still on..

It's annoying because i can't work anymore with masks, move nulls by hand, and see my shape layers..

I erased my disk cache and clean database but didn't work.

I reinstalled After effect and didn't work.

I erased my preferences not better.

I have the latest drivers for my graphics card.

I tried Disable hardware acceleration in AE's Project Settings. didn't work.

Recently i worked on a less heavy project and the probleme didn't appear.. But back on heavy ones it's appearing again!

I've sent a message to adobe community manager but they didn't answer me..

Does anyone have an idea?

I have no authoritative answer, but I can speculate.

You recently installed the newest Creative Cloud update. Is this correct?

If you did, I recommend that you revert to the previous update. The new one updated After Effects to version 15.1.0. The previous update, version 15.0.1, worked somewhat reliably.

Does it make a difference if you change Preferences > Display > Hardware Accelerate Composition, Layer, and Footage Panels? (Note that this is a different setting than Project Settings > Video Rendering and Effects > Use (acceleration)).
