  1. Separate Graph editor window

    A separate graph editor window from the keyframe timeline would be great.
    It's such a pain to constantly switch between graph and key frames.

  2. Speed graph - animating unlinked scale X and Y improvements (toggle X and Y priority)

    It is common to animate the scale of an object along one axis (imagine a bar graph animating upward). Of course you do this by unlinking the X and Y scale proportions and increase the Y scale over time. And if you want the animation to be more dynamic you will use the graph editor. This is easily done with the Value graph. However, trying to do this with the Speed graph is very difficult. This is because the X influence is overtop the Y influence - and when you graph the handles of the keyframe in the Speed graph…

  3. Trim Paths Delay

    It would be great to be able to set a time delay when using Trim Paths when set to individually. Having the ability to adjust when the next successive path starts would be a huge help.

    Currently when set to animate individually the paths are animated one at a time and ONLY when the previous path has finished. Being able to set that value would be such a time saver.

  4. Separate XYZ axes for Puppet Position Pin Tool animation

    It would be useful if you could separate XYZ axes for more than just position animation. This would be good for anchor point, scale, etc., but particularly for the Puppet Position Pin tool this feels like it ought to be the default. I'm aware of the workaround with linking null position to pin position, but really you shouldn't have to do all that setup just to set an x keyframe to ease in with a y keyframe at linear.

  6. Expose Paragraph Text Box Width/Height for Expressions

    It's currently impossible within expressions to set the width or height of a Paragraph Text box.

    This would be a massively helpful feature for text-based templates and animations.

  7. Motion Sketch doesn't play audio

    Motion sketch would be much more useful if one could hear the audio playing as you're performing. At present I'm doing my animation with this functionality in Blender and transferring it back to After Effects with .jsx files, but it would be much more convenient if I could do it all in AE.

  9. Time delay in Shape layer Repeater Properties

    As rotation, postion and opacity... time (in frame) should be a variable that we should be able to work with.

    Should also be affected by the Offset

  10. Visibile motion paths within Shape Layers

    It would be great to have VISIBLE Motion Paths within shape layers. It would be much easier to animate individual shape groups this way. Currently, animating a shape within a shape group requires expressions and can get messy pretty quickly.

  11. Integrate Mixamo into After Effects!

    I think you should integrate mixamo into After Effects to make animation of 3d characters a lot easier. This way we can use 3d animated character easily in After Effects and also allow it so people can use any character they can bring into After effects to be animated. Along with an easy way to make the characters interact with objects in a scene.

  12. Video and still image capture inside After Effects

    Please add the feature of allowing After effects to connect to a webcam and capture video or still images. This will allow users to create animation using drawings or stop motion or shoot reference videos inside of after effects without having to waste time using a separate application and transferring files.

  13. use getStyleAt() also to redefine properties

    thisComp.layer("Text layer").text.sourceText.getStyleAt(0).fontSize
    gives me the size of the first character

    why :
    getStyleAt(0).setFontSize(72)
    it applies to all characters and doesn't allow to redefine only the size of the first character?

  14. Animate Parenting

    It would be great to be able to animate parent/unparent. There would be no need to split layers. Would make for a very nice clean comp.

    In the manner that this post suggests:

  15. Separating Dimensions Shouldn't Ruin Your Animation Curves

    When you realize you need to separate the dimensions of a layer and you've already done animation on that layer, doing so shouldn't ***** up the work you've already done.

    This is 100% possible. Moho has this capability and it's hobbyist level software.

  16. Automatic marker updates throughout compositions

    Have master markers that update through a composition and all it's nested precomps.

    I often have the same time markers in my comps and it's tedious to update them manually throughout all of them across the project. It would be a timesaver and overall more accurate if they were all linked to the parent comp and updated their timestamps accordingly

  17. Paste Time-Reversed Keyframes

    It would be wonderful to have a Paste function that combined a standard keyframe paste followed by a Time-Reverse Keyframes process. I find myself quite often animating an element "into position" and then later wanting to reverse the process to "return" to its original state.

  18. Expression for clip duration as trimmed within Premeire

    inPoint, outPoint and thisComp.duration all reflect the original, untrimmed/stretched clip when used in Premiere.

    We need an expression that can reference the (trimmed) clip duration.

    Right now everyone is adding duration sliders which is a bad solution for many reasons.

  20. Shape trim paths should come after taper and wave operations

    Using trim paths, I'm trying to animate a shape stroke that has a taper added to the start and end of the stroke. Taper is calculated relative to the length of the stroke, which AE recognises as changing according to the percentage completion of the trim paths.

    This might be what you'd want some of the time, but I just want to animate the stroke like a pen mark being written on. The line left by a pen nib would not be shifting its thickness as it is being drawn on.
