News, Information & Workflows from Users & the Adobe Ae Team

OS X 10.7 Lion and AE

So Lion is now out.  Many users will be asking how this will impact applications such as AE.

To give some insight – Adobe engineers have been testing our applications since the first drop of Lion was available to developers.  In many cases, there has been a dialogue between Apple and Adobe about where issues have arisen and how to address / fix them.

For After Effects specifically – there are no known specific issues to report with CS 5 or CS 5.5 running on 10.7 Lion. There are however a few changes in the OS that you should be aware of in your production workflow (for installing applications, accessing prefs etc):

We do know of an intermittent crash on quit with AE CS 4 in Lion that was being addressed by Apple.  We are working on determining if this was fixed by Apple in the final shipping version of the OS.

Any chance we can get a working link to “known issues” here?

[ Just noticed the link is broken all over the web – have notified the knowledge base folks. Thanks for the heads up. -S

Update – The link now points to the right resource. -S ]

When in AE, option clicking another app does not hide AE. It acts as if it’s hidden, clicking on the AE interface wont make it active. This has been a Mac standard for quite some time and I use it a lot. Right clicking AE in the dock and choosing hide or unhide works fine.

Not a biggie, just something I’m use to.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
