  1. Frame by Frame in AE!

    I was thinking about making frame by frame on AE, I tried using Paint and Stick, but at work it was quite slow, lag => I didn't like it! I have thought of one way to work both software at the same time as AE and Photoshop, but it came up with one thing: I have a 3-layer psd file, import into AE into each layer, then, I create 1 4th layer in PTS, paint on it and save, but in AE do not create that 4th layer! I know this is impossible! But do you think there is a…

  3. [BUG] Property or method names 'style' in Class 'TextProperty' is missing

    Please make Javascript the default expression engine. Otherwise the new expression abilities that came out with AE 2020 are unavailable.

    If any of you are trying to access the new 2020 text expression items, make sure to go to your project settings -> expressions -> Javascript

  5. Disable different axises for 3d rotation / rotate one axis only

    For animation comps with cameras obviously my layers need to be 3d, which makes rotation in the composition window annoying. When I'm animating a character in 2d it's quick and easy to press W and rotate in the comp view, but if the layer is 3d it's tricky to get the right point to rotate in 3d space. In fact, I NEVER do transformations on 3d layers in the comp window because it's an unusable mess - I always dial in the numerical numbers, which is much slower.

    I would love to be able to easily rotate just one axis…

  6. Keyframes in the curve editor do not have smooth curves

    When animating assets in AE, anytime there are close keyframes together in the timeline, the curves never allow you to set the correct path (screen shot attached). I have 4 assets I'm animating in the same position, but are growing in size. Each of the assets wobble out of place, instead of giving me a stagnant position. I've never dealt with this in any other animation program (Maya, Cinema 4D, Apple's Motion, etc...).
    The only way around this, is to separate the values in order to animate them properly, which I find to be a huge hassle. I do several…

  7. Bug: Editing Path and Pasting into Position Value, Doesn't Create Keyframes

    When creating a path, if you copy the path and paste it into the position value, it creates key frames along that path. However, if you decide you want to edit the shape of the path using the selection tool, before copying and pasting it into the position value, it doesn't create key frames anymore, it just duplicates the path.

  9. automatic quantizing of keyframes

    Switching from 24 to 23.976 is crushing me. I would love a preference to automatically quantize keyframes perhaps project-wide.

  10. Animate separate parts of single source text with normal transform key frames.

    I want to edit one text layer to only animate parts of the text. For example, to fade in certain parts of a paragraph or to bring parts in from out of frame. Instead of having to copy the same text layer and take more time to re-align all the text as if it was never multiple layers. Just by adding more options that can be keyframed underneath the source text option or by making separate masks in the source text options to control the separate text elements.

    no encuentro element en efectos. Todos los productos de Vds. me han causado problemas cuando quiero probarlos. Es una tortura, uno no puede aprender nada. No lo entiendo como pueden complicar las cosa así

  12. Certify the Quadro RTX 4000 gpu

    Hola estimados.
    Tengo una gpu Quadro RTX 4000, como no está certificada no me permite hacer raytracing en after effects.
    Mi pedido es que se proceda a la certificación de dicha tarjeta, ya que es especialmente orientada hacia el raytracing.
    Cordiales saludos y gracias.

  13. it would be awesome if AE didn't repeatedly lock up while doing simple tracking.

    I can't even begin to calculate how many times I've had to go into Task Manager to kill After Effects after it locks up doing a simple track.

  14. Automatically make shape layers 3D if camera is present

    I'll often have an animated 3D camera, but when I create a shape layer it is by default a 2D layer. When I make it a 3D layer, the position moves relative to the camera. I don't know how many times I've done a bunch of work to arrange a shape layer, then realized it's not 3D, and then had to reposition it all over again.

  16. 3D Text issue. Random triggers for TDL error (88::2)

    I am still pretty new to animating in after effects, but I have seen several people complaining about bugs similar to what I am dealing with.

    https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1128877

    It is frustrating if the team can fix this that would be great.

  17. Repeat frame values in After Effects like MMB in Maya

    It would be nice if there was a way to repeat values to another position in timeline in After Effects like we do in Autodesk Maya. I mean, you have a key at frame 1 and one at frame 30; you would like to have the values that you currently have at frame 10 to become the values for the key at frame 20.
    In Autodesk Maya, you would go to frame 10, MMB drag the timeline to frame 20 and set a key for the attributes you want keyed, because when you MMB drag in Maya the animation “freezes”…

  18. Ranking feature such as Microsoft Excel

    Expression for dynamic ranking such as different number counter:

    Eg. Number counter_ A PARENT WITH ANY LAYER property such as position = 20

    Number counter_ B PARENT WITH property = 30

    Number counter_ C PARENT WITH property = 50

    New expression will rank the position of all layer per number counter output

    Such as

    Number counter 50 first,

    Number counter 30second

    Number counter 20 third position

  20. Paste keyframes as offset

    Just like the loopOut("offset") expression, this command would offset all of the keyframes in a paste operation by the parameter's current value. (at the moment this can be done by selecting the newly pasted frames, and scrolling the value of the first frame to match the parameter's current value. It's not quick or particularly accurate)
