API Reference

      "video": [
        {"landing_page_id": 65141}

Bug Fixes

Storybuilding Suite

  • When audio starts at 0 and sidechain compression is on, the soundtrack only starts to dip a little later. This was fixed and the soundtrack dips right from 0.

  • When sidechain compression drops so the soundtrack is no longer audible, the soundtrack does not come back. This was fixed so the soundtrack does come back.

  • When changing image properties, the scene's preview did not get updated. You had to click the Preview button at the top right. It now updates properly.

  • Media alignment was reversed. It is now fixed.

Scene Tools

  • The version supporting Animated Text was pulled away due to other bugs. It is not available again. Download and install the latest Scene Tools to enjoy the features.

  • Middle text alignment now places the text exactly in the middle of the height of the placeholder.

  • Scene Tools installer had a problem installing on only some versions of After Effects. Fixed.
