The awaited 8.02 update for Adobe After Effects is now available for download for Mac OS X and Windows, and through the Adobe Update Manager. It’s been my experience that the process goes a lot faster with the manual download.Support for direct P2 import into After Effects has been added. Mac users get Leopard compatibility.Originally the update was going to address issues with QuickTime 7.4, but the update was released without the QT fix. Adobe continues to recommend CS 3 users do not update to QuickTime 7.4. Known issues include failure to render files that take longer than 10 minutes to render.Some work arounds include rendering still image sequences and then piecing them back together in QuickTime Pro, or downgrading (just like the PCs do in those ads) to QuickTime 7.3 using Pacifist.No word on when a QuickTime 7.4 fix will be released.
