  3. Modernize the "Numbers" effect

    The Number effect is now practically useless, considering it stops at 30.000. It would be nice to have a quick and easy way to make counters with separtors (like in "1,000,000,000", it's kind of annoying having to use an expression for this). Same problem goes with the "time" option : you're pretty much screwed if you need a 1 hour countdown for example.

    I know this can be done with expressions, but it would be nice to have an advanced Numbers effect built in !

  4. Put the character animator physics engine into after effects

    As character animator already has a good 2d physics engine with gravity and collisions why not implement it in Adobe's primary animation tool After Effects.

  5. Make layers deform in z axis 3D

    I have always found it frustrating that you can not alter a layer in 3D at all.

    You can work with a 2D flat video layer but you can not deform it at all in the z axis.

    This would add the ability to treat a layer more like a face in a 3d app like Maya. You could add points and move them forward or back in z space like the puppet tool only not limited to x and y values.

  6. Summary Keyframe track that is editable.

    I would like a keyframe track which shows all the keyframes in a layer in a single track. All selectable and moveable.

    This is fairly common in 3D programs and is a good way of moving a lot of keyframes without having to reveal and select them all individually. Often times in revisions it is necessary to move large blocks of keyframes as a group. This would make that process much easier.

    This already happens to some extend when there are a number of keyframes within a collapsed property (transform, contents, etc), but it's purely cosmetic for reference. They can't…

  7. GIFs hold first frame longer than it should

    Love that I can import GIFs now! But sometimes when I put a GIF in composition, the first frame of the GIF holds for longer than it should. usually around 3x longer than the framerate of the file. It keeps GIFs that loop seamlessly from... looping seamlessly. It can be worked-around with time remapping, but it is imprecise.

  10. It would be great to be able to invert and keyframe the freeze area mask in the liquify effect, so that it effects the deformation

    It would be great to be able to invert and keyframe the freeze area mask in the liquify effect, so that its effect on the deformation throughout the animation can change, rather than just being a "stencil" for individual brush strokes being applied.

  11. the sequence layers option seems broken

    in the sequence layers option for some reason the fading of layers does not add key frames on video files just makes them 0 opacity.

    it seems like i have to select all then activate a keyframe on the opacity layer on all layers then run the sequence script.

  12. Copying and moving mask animations on the same layer

    When having several masks on the same layer, you cannot curently copy and move them to another position on your layer (as to make the same animation play in two different positions on your layer). When selcting all of the keyframes for one or several masks, if you then try to move them, it creates a new keyframe on the CTI for where you have put your mask, rusulting in wonky animations. I would like it if when selecting all the keyframes for one or several masks, and move the mask, it moves the position of the mask on all…

  13. Render files in Premiere Pro-supported formats

    With Premiere Pro about to discontinue support for 32-bit legacy files, After Effects' render outputs should be formatted in non-legacy file types so they can work hassle-free in PrPro.
    (I haven't had much luck fully retaining alpha channels with non-legacy formats from Ae renders)

  14. Time Stretch using expressions

    I'm looking for a way to edit the Layer Time Stretch value using expressions.
    It's easy to get the value, but couldn't find a way to edit it.

  19. 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.
