I have Cs6 at home. and cc 2014 at work. Does AE CC have yellow keyframes or invis..i mean blue keyframes?

[Richard Garabedain] "Does AE CC have yellow keyframes or invis..i mean blue keyframes?"

It certainly does. If you're suggesting its an odd choice from a usability perspective – I agree. These blue keyframe icons vanish in the darker UI.

Though I'm sure Adobe's UI team has research and testing which indicate its a good choice.

If you want it changed you can let Adobe know you're not happy with their colour choice.

Perhaps they could make it an Appearance preference, like the overall UI brightness.

Yeah, I'm not totally sold on the dark colour with blue in AE. For some reason, it doesn't bother me in Premiere, but I've had to lighten the interface of AE to just over half-way to make the keyframes stand out a little more.

We're working on an update now that addresses the problems with the difficulty of distinguishing the keyframes. The update is targeted for a few weeks from now.

Does the fix address all the blue instances or just keyframes?

More customization will come to the user interface in an update next year, but not the one in December 2014.

In the update, is it also possible to change the 'bigger' look of the fonts and spaces of the interface ? After effects cc 2014 seems to take over more space than needed, which comes with unneeded scrolling and less layers visible than before.
The first versions of After effects CC didn't have this issue as i recall ...

Yes, that blue has so little contrast. Sack whoever changed that colour. It was a pointless change for the sake of change.

AE CC 2015 includes even more customization options. With a bit of tweaking in the preferences, you can make the whole thing very readable. (Personally, I like the blue at the defaults, but I can understand the issues.)
