  1. Motion Sketch Audio is STILL broken.

    Please fix Motion Sketch. The Audio has been broken for FIVE YEARS.

    I have to record the video on my phone, play it back and start the recording and the motion sketch at the same time just to work around this issue.

  2. A simple way to parent keyframes to markers

    You should be able to link any keyframe to any marker in a comp, in the same way you can link/parent layers to one another. There are ways to do this using complex expressions, but a simple pick-whip style tool to quickly link keyframes and markers would be an absolute game-changer. Especially for complex files in need of frequent revisions.

  3. Feather Trim Paths

    Adding a "feather" option to the trim path effect. It seems like there is no simple way to achieve this effect that a lot of people are struggling to create.

    Having the option to animate lines with a feathered trail would be a tremendous asset to everyone, instead of having to resort to complicated workarounds.

    Thank you.

  4. 1.Use actions (animation presets) from PS in AE

    Have PS action inspired effects if its easy

    (control layer)

    Pick-wip with a percentage or inverse value select effected (makes parallax easier)

    Control layer (add more functionality to a pick-wip or adjustment layer) So it has.... you think it up

  5. Please implement a solid Physics Engine 2D in After Effects

    Use physic engine in our animations with some settings (bounciness, density, friction, mesh precision, velocity, gravity, etc..on a layer (type : solid, static, kinetik)

  6. 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…

  7. Import AI to AE: AI Layers to Precomps

    For rigging and organization purposes, importing should be more tight. I guess every program in Suite can be integrated properly.

    When you "export as" ai to psd, for instance, you find every path created on illustrator in a folder/subfolder inside the layers tab on photoshop.

    This could be really useful if you prepare a tons of bones and parts in a rig workflow inside illustrator and try to import this project inside after effects.

    In a nutshell, you should be able to import AI layers in After effects as precomps.

  8. Object Tracking using mesh or using track points, similar to PF Track.

    This would be a massive addition to After Effects. I am thinking of something where you can use a mesh or track points, similar to PF Track.

  9. can't move newly added keyframe

    I just added a new keyframe on a layer (Time Remapping) and at first I couldn't even select it (well I COULD select every other keyframe to the left and to the right of it on the same property, Time Remap). I deleted it (using the wave form view and box-selecting it) and added a new one. Not this I could select, but I could not move it at all. Again - all other keyframes on the same property and on the same layer, left and right to it, could be easily moved as expected. But the newly created one…

  10. Option to disable horizontal movement of keyframes in Graph Editor

    When editing keyframes in the graph editor, most times I'm just trying to change the values and interpolations, not the frame that the keys are on in time. But, without the reference point of other layer's keys visible, it's too easy to accidentally drag keyframes left or right off their original frame in the Graph Editor. A single button at the bottom to disable time alterations would be great.

  11. bring back DXV and HAP!

    if you they are not bought back soon , il be forced to cancel my subscription and revert back to cs6

    this is a massive ***** up by you guys and you have added on huge amounts of time on to the creative studios workflows for those who cater to the live events industry because of this.

    Very Unhappy

  13. Hierarchy of Transform Properties on layer

    Often when working with a layer one will want to control the layer's Transform properties themselves, but then also have additional transform control for that layer independent of the layer controls. Typically one would create a new Null and parent the layer to the Null, thus giving one another set of Transform property controls higher up in the hierarchy.

    This can be useful in many situations, such as having a particular anchor point of the layer itself, but then another anchor point for more fine tuned controls (e.g., a squash and stretch for a bounce).

    The current method of parenting…

  14. Please Bring back the 3d-ray tracing in after effects new version

    Some of our old plugins and presets still working only with 3d-ray tracing.

  15. 3D Shape Layers: Repeater in Z space with random properties. Would be amazing!

    This would be amazing if the repeater option could also apply for Z dimension when the layer is turned to 3D. A random option for each dimension would be amazing as well! Especially since the repeater is not available in C4D lite, this would be such a game changer for mograph effects involving basic shapes in 3D! Would be good as the next thing after adding taper options on strokes. It's such a shame that the shapes tools are so under developped in After Effects.

  16. Export to Animated PNG

    It is long overdue to provide a direct export option either through the Adobe Media Encoder or Render Queue to render out a sequence as an Animated PNG and also Animated SVG formats as these are now more and more required for many web applications. It would save a lot of time in a workflow to have to export as a png sequence then use a third party application to import the png sequence and then export as an APNG.

  18. Shape layer fill effects

    There are fx on shape layers to control the path/stroke (trim path, punk bloat, etc) but there's no fx that control fill. It'd be great to be able to apply fx under Effect->Transition to the fill. Or have it's own set of fx (linear wipe, iris, radial, dissolve, barndoor, etc)

  19. add shift frame to sequence layers

    Sequence Layers command is very useful but not very fast to use. Most of the time I use it to shift layers of a few frame: I must select all layers, cut them, sequence layers and the trim back all layers to the end.
    It would be easier if you can add a sort of Shift time in the Sequence Layers Window, so we can choose how many frames to shift the in point of the next layer than the previous one.

  20. FK/IK Bone-Tool for easy animations

    After Effects needs a easy 3D Bone-Tool with Presets (like in Moho 12) for easy animation with shapes or the puppet-tool.
