Adobe, you guys ever gonna fix this flicker issue?

After several discussions on the Adobe support site with Todd and others beginning almost a year ago, this issue remains unresolved. There are many others that have reported this issue years before I did. Why is such an obvious and annoying bug being ignored?

Interesting, and, I'm sure, frustrating. I have never run across this issue in all the years I've worked with After Effects (6, 7, CS4, CS5.5, CS6, and CC2014).

Are you sure it's an AE issue, and not a video card issue?

Windows only. Happens on different versions of Windows, different Windows machines, different versions of AE and different GPUs.

I'm not saying you don't see it, I'm just saying I've never run across it. Windows only as well. Never seen it on XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

Never seen this in 15 years of teaching in Windows based labs on *any* otherwise functional hardware.

From XP to Win 8, on custom boxes or off-the-shelf Dells.

This looks like a hardware issue, or some sort of driver conflict. How annoying.

[Brian Charles] "This looks like a hardware issue, or some sort of driver conflict. How annoying."

It happens occasionally on a couple of my systems sometimes -- high end HPs with fancy GPUs. It's a bug -- it only ever happens with Ae. I just tap something else on the task bar and tap back into Ae.

I had never seen this before either, up until (coincidentally) yesterday, when it happened to me for the first time ever. (Windows 7)

I was goofing off running through the new Red Giant Universe effects to see what they looked like, and after about ten minutes of "add effect/delete effect/add effect/delete effect" AE went nuts in that way. As I say: That's the only time it has ever happened to me.

I don't know if it was a 3rd party effect problem, graphics card problem, memory problem, or if AE was just annoyed with me for wasting its time.

We've only been able to reproduce it in one scenario, and the hypothesis is that this is related to overscheduled CPUs and switching threads.

We're doing a lot of work regarding threading in our current massive re-architecture project, and we're on the lookout for this issue while doing so. So far, in the version under development, we haven't seen this issue recur.
