  1. Create bulleted text lists easily

    If several lines of text could be bulleted, easily placed in the right position relative to eachother and animated as a group or individually more like in Powerpoint, that would be so helpful.

  2. Make pupet tools compatible with master property

    Hi !
    I have tested the new system of master property on nested compositions.

    I would like to use it for rigging character, but the pupet tool doesn't working for now.

    The concept is great, i think but very limited without this basic feature !
    Could you make this system compatible to pupet tools, please.

  4. After Effect Flash integration

    Hi, Please Please add functionality to export xfl from after effect to flashCC or maybe a new feature which integrates the two program better.

    PS: I am in a company where size of the animation file is huge issue. most people use flash and i use after Effect, i suspect i might get fired soon.

  5. Preference for changing the default temporal interpolation

    I can already change the default spatial interpolation to linear if I don't like Auto Bezier or Continuos Bezier. Unfortunately I cannot change the default temporal interpolation which always points to linear. It would be so great to have a preference where I can change the default to Auto Bezier.

  6. Keyframes anchored to layer length

    I'd love to be able to anchor keyframes to the beginning/end of a layer. Obviously it's essential that keyframes anchor in their location relative to the beginning/end, so some will be dead on, but others will be ±12 frames from the beginning/end.

    Bonus points if this can dynamic link through Premiere so lower 3rds can have a dynamic out animation based on their duration in the sequence.

  7. Potential workaround for two issues with Master Properties

    Specifically, the inability to copy keyframes or set a nested comp's Master Properties as a MP in a parent comp. Create a solid/null/something invisible, and apply multiple Effect Controls corresponding to each MP (Slider, Angle, Checkbox, etc.), then link the MP's to them with the new pickwhip.

    It's a pretty clunky workaround, and not robust at all, but it's better than nothing (arguably).

  8. Path points not editable or stretching attributes

    I'm experiencing strange bugs in the path item on a shape layer.

    When I make a two point path (a line) I can no longer go back to edit those points, most of the time. The other times it creates strange affects to other attributes, such as stroke. Stretching the stroke instead of redrawing it at the same width across the path.

    I tested in 2017, and initial tests show the expected result, the points are editable and the stroke shows up the right way. But the 2018 version is acting totally different.

    A video to show what I'm experiencing…

  9. 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.

  10. Use Character Animators detailed facial tracking

    I do a lot of detailed facial tracking for my content. It would literally save me days of work if AE was able to track face points as quickly as CH does.

  11. Keyboard shortcut for mask tracker analyze forward and backward.

    I do a lot of detailed facial tracking for my content, a keyboard shortcut to start the analyze forward or back function would save a lot of time clicking around when I have a lot of clips to get through.

  13. Add Separate Dimensions button in graph editor for sub layers' position animation in a shape layer (eg. text converted to shape layer)

    It would be great if the separate dimensions button wasn't grayed out for separate positions of sub layers, would make a lot of sense

  14. Snapping keyframes to time indicator with 'shift'

    This is a functionality I had for years, but doesn't work anymore.Is there a new preference I can't seem to find for this?

    I have snapping enabled in the top toolbar.

  15. Show delta time when shifting keyframes

    When shifting a layer in time, I get a useful display in the info panel telling me, how much I have shifted the layer already (delta time). Please give the same info when shifting keyframes. There only the new time of the keyframe is displayed, so I have to remember the old time and do the math to know, how much the keyframe was shifted.

  16. Add shortcut to add a keyframe to path property

    I just want to select a layer then hit ALT+(a key) which adds a keyframe to the path property. It's really tiresome first selecting a layer then having to search for the path property. Then having to drag a rectangle over the path properties. Then adding a keyframe. Especially when there's many path to one layer.

    It works brilliantly with the other properties eg. ALT+P to add a position keyframe at the CTI.

    Also… At the moment the cursor sticks (on Mac) for 2-3 second when dragging rectangles over anything in the timeline.

    Cheers!

  17. Speed graph editor: 'View speed curves as absolute values' option

    In the speed graph editor: Can we get a 'View velocities as absolute values' option please. This way increasing the speed on multiple keys does exactly that, regardless of the negative or positive value of the key speed.

    Ie, for 2 shapes moving left and right, their X position speed curves are negative (for left) and positive (for right).

  18. How do you think if you put bitmap drawing on After Effect?

    I use After Effect 3 years, I work on animation and I realize that I and my colleagues all want to paint directly on my work, but I don't want to switch to other software because it's quite inconvenient! So what do you think about this issue? put bitmap drawing in AE, draw on comp, trans layer (not solid layer), ....

  19. Holding the Shift Key While Moving a Tangent Handle (Curved Path)

    Allow the user to hold the shift key down while moving the tangent handle of a curved path to constrain the movement to the horizontal and vertical axes based on the anchor point from which the tangent starts. The shift key currently allows movement of the tangent handle along seemingly random angle intervals.
