The After Effects CC 2015 (13.6.1) bug-fix update addresses these significant bugs:
- The preview image in the Composition panel no longer fails to update in certain cases after you make a change to the composition. This fix prevents After Effects from putting the image cache into a bad state, which most commonly occurred on Windows after using Undo, but could also occur after other changes once the project had entered the bad state.
- Previewing a composition with audio no longer fails to start when a layer has an audio effect with an expression, and display an error: Effect cannot use "abort" callback when called with "unrecognized plug-in effect command" command. ( 25 :: 19 )
- Viewer panels (Composition, Layer, Footage) no longer show downsampling artifacts when the viewer zoom is set to 50% zoom, the viewer resolution is set to Full, and the Hardware Accelerate Composition, Layer, and Footage Panels option is enabled in Preferences > Display.
- After Effects no longer fails to start on computers with older processors lacking a specific instruction set (for example, AMD Phenom II and Athlon processors). The error message given for this specific issue was "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000001d)" or "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142)". Note: A similar issue affects Premiere Pro CC 2015 (9.1), for which the fix is more involved. An upcoming Premiere Pro update is intended to address this issue. Thank you for your patience.
- After Effects no longer generates the wrong image for layers using some plug-ins in 16-bpc or 32-bpc (bits per channel) color mode. Affected plug-ins included Digital Film Tools Film Stocks and Digital Anarchy plug-ins.
- Creative Cloud account names that use non-ASCII characters (for example, Japanese and Chinese characters) no longer cause an error "could not convert Unicode characters" when you start After Effects.
