  1. animation key notes or tags

    You could grab a set of keys, and then tag them with note to mark a specific action, like "bounce" or "wave."
    Then you wouldn't be completely lost trying to look through all of your keys.
    A search function would be handy too.

  2. Fix/allow H264 animated textures in C4D to work with Cineware.

    Cineware does not work with MP4 animated textures from Cinema. Shows a yellow texture instead of the video.

    PNG sequences work.

    C4D version: R19
    AE: 2018 15.1.1

  3. Separate Dimensions for Camera Point of Interest and Scale

    I really don't know why this feature is not in After Effects after all these years, but it would be so helpful to be able to separate dimensions for Camera Point of Interest and Scale. It is sometimes really hard to animate the camera when you can only separate the position dimensions but not the Point of Interest.

  5. Group name should be able to rename, It will be easy to rectify while animating characters

    Can we add group name rename option, It will very help full to know multiple groups via its name, i know i can do while creating layout or character in adobe illustrator I can give layers name and import in to after effect and convert illustrator layers to "create shapes from vector layer" with its original name, but inside the particular layer, there are multiple groups, which I need to rename the layers name. Please find the attached screen shot.

    Thanks,
    Amrish Jha

  6. Strokes in shape layers should have a customisable end cap, rather than the three simple options currently available.

    Strokes in shape layers currently offer three options for the end cap. It would be great if the end cap were customisable, either via beziers or with an importable artwork. This would make stroke animation much more powerful and useful.

  7. A keyframe that inherits its value from the previous keyframe

    Imagine a scenario with 3 keyframes where an object holds position for a second (1-2) then moves to a new position (2-3). To adjust the object hold position, you must edit keyframes 1 and 2. If you forget to update keyframe 2 you no longer have a hold. With this type of inheritance keyframe, you'd only have to worry about adjust keyframe 1, and keyframe 2 would automatically follow along.

  8. After Effects doesn't properly support SWF import from Adobe Animate

    This would be a great feature but it doesn't work very well! Advanced layers don't work properly, some types of easing don't display correctly, and nested/masked layers don't display correctly (see attached screenshot).

    Please implement it properly!

  9. Coloured Keyframes

    The same way we colour our layers to keep track of categories, let us do that with our keyframes when we have a lot of them on one layer for example. Can't imagine this is very hard to do.

  10. Set Legacy Puppet Engine to Default

    Advanced puppet engine is rubbery and starch is ineffective. Puppet meshes often break when switching from Advanced to Legacy engine.

    I'd love the ability to set the Legacy engine as default, and see continued support for the legacy puppet engine in releases down the road.

  11. Text animator selector based on Paragraphs

    Currently text animators can select based on characters, words and lines. The ability to select by paragraph would be extremely useful for things like slideshow bullet points.

    The current workaround involves manually splitting up paragraphs, positioning them, and key-framing them independently. This is quite time consuming.

  12. Even Dashes on stoked paths to match Illustrator

    It would be awesome if After Effects handled dashed lines the same way Illustrator does with the option to force dashes to be symmetrical with the corners.

    Thanks!

  14. FFD: Free Form Deformation

    In most 3d programs (3dsmax, c4d...maya) there is an FFD tool that allows you to set a cage that causes deformation when the affected object passses through it. the cage position is independent of the object. This allows you to deform the object as it passes through the cage--picture a thick viscous fluid squeezing to fit through a funnel and then regaining its former shape once out of the funnel. Pixels are affected as they pass through the cage.

    Current options like puppet and mesh warp's positions are tied to your object and cant achieve this same effect.

  15. Copied Illustrator CC 2019 paths no longer paste into AE CC 2019 properly as a shape path

    I used to be able to copy paths from Illustrator (using the direct selection tool, not the selection tool) and paste them into After Effects as a shape path, but the translation is no longer 1:1. It now appears to rather paste the outline of the stroke weight, including arrowheads and other non-features of the path.

  18. Improve PNG Sequences

    I'm seeing it more & more, especially when I do a Time-Reverse layer. Sometimes my PNG Sequences have random blank frames where my art should be visible. Sometimes zooming in & back out again fixes it, sometimes not. It's incredibly frustrating.

    SIDENOTE: Your hyperlink to "Bug Reports" on forums.adobe.com is broken. It's probably a mis-typed link.

  19. Advanced Puppet Issue

    The new "advanced puppet" is coming into act as a force. The user must be able to set all the future pin creations to either Legacy or Advanced. As the Advanced Puppet tool does not support "Starch" it is not usable for a savvy animator anymore. It does have other good funcations probably but as far as character animation is concerned, without starch tool, you lose the desired workflow.

    Hope this get fixed in the new update.

    Thanks!

  20. Import Xd Files into AE

    I would like to be able to import Adobe Xd Files into After Effects, to create animations in your app design. Furthermore, it would be great if you can use these animations from After effects in Adobe Xd to prototype your app.
