  1. BUG: CC Repetile gives empty pixels gap when applied to an adjustment layer

    When applied to an adjustment layer CC RepeTile generates 2 empty extra pixels between the tiles. This is a bug! The problem is present in both AE 2019 and 2020 versions. When applied directly to the footage it seems to work fine.

  2. Don't require track mattes to be above the layer it modifies (and also allow re-use)

    Requiring a track matte to be right above the layer it modifies seems like an archaic convention at best. Get rid of that requirement and make them like parent layers which can be anywhere and used by many layers.

  3. Make an archive of the AE SDK forum available.

    The old AE SDK forum contained hundreds of threads with valuable information that is not available in the AE SDK guide. Very many of those threads are no longer available at all, and the new interface is no longer navigable because it is not possible to limit searches to posts tagged with 'SDK' or in any other meaningful way. Moreover, questions about the SDK are simply not being answered any more, and there is no other support resource. I don't think I would have been able to get anywhere near where I am now without the help of the forum,…

  4. Add Grain in 32bit

    Please move this to the top of priorities.
    Since we're now all moving towards ACES which requires working in 32bit, not having a grain effect that works in 32bit makes most of the compositing work almost impossible to do. It's hard to think of an effect that doesn't require grain matching with the background plate, and now every time we apply the add grain effect all, overbright values get clamped, so we CAN'T use the effect on any new production :/

  5. Please give options to change missing font in template project!!!

    I came across a .aet project that has a missing font, and I just can't get the text to change font in the comp, it resizes as if it was changing but the font remain the same no matter what...

    After consulting with Adobe technical support, they responded that there is no such a function to change missing font. I sincerely hope in future version they include this option! Thank you!

  6. After Effects 2020 Much Much SLOWER

    Was working with 2020 for 5 min.
    Out of the box in comparison seam to be slower on a comp of a resolution of 5400x1080, as compares to AE 2019.

    Certainly twice(!!!!) slower from AE 2019 in reading JPG SEQ res:5400x1080.

    Did not checked it further.

    Both Apps synced with their preferences.
    Both of them have the Cache option disabled.

  7. "Erode" effect to replace "Simple Choker"

    It would be very nice to re-write the "Simple Choker" effect to perform more closely to the Nuke "Erode" node. Specifically the precision is much higher and the results more reliable. When using "Simple Choker" any feathering is lost and the matte becomes hard, it seems to exponentially get less effective the wider you go, and it does not keep the original shape of your mask very well (there seems to be a blurring effect which rounds out edges). On the other hand the Nuke "Erode" node works in pixels and no precision is lost in terms of your mask…

  8. After Effects effects previewer UI

    A UI of your effects that allows you to layer effects in a previewer to see the results before applying. This would be especially effective if you have a lot of effects and not sure what they all do.

  9. Parenting Masks to Null objects to inherit position data.

    The reshape tool would become way more helpful with digital beauty work if AE had a way to parent Masks to a Null object that received tracking data from Mocha.

  10. Proxy Effects or adding "render only" option to heavy intense effects

    Some effects like camera lens blur are computationally expensive. It would be great to be able to have a proxy effects such as Gaussian blur during previews, but at render time turn off Gaussian blur and turn on camera lens blur. Or perhaps have a setting that only turns it on at render time. I imagine it could be a drop down that says "off until render." I know I can turn off all effects on a layer or composition, but then I have to remember to turn them on before rendering.

  11. SWF support is broken if SWF is placed on a server

    After Effects doesn't recognize SWFs if the SWF is placed on a server. Full brakes the whole workflow for any studio using Animate CC...

  12. set matte should have the option to fit composition or layer

    actually it fits the layer size and stretch the Matte layer.
    So if we use a layer with a different ratio in the composition it not useful.

    With this option, it would have the ability to ignore transformation like rotation size and position... so the Set Matte would work as a Track Matte Layer and we could animate behind it.

    It would safe a lot of layer count and space.

  13. masks don't live update while effects are applied

    When you're animating a mask on a layer that has effects applied, the mask doesn't update live. You have to purge the memory or disable all the effects on the mask in order to be able to see the updated layer.
    We need to see the mask updated even with effects applied.

  14. rotoscoping bug

    Ich habe (leider nicht freiwillig) eine Möglichkeit gefunden, die After Effects Projektdatei komplett zu zerstören:
    Ich habe einen HD Footage 1920/1080 23,98 Frames/Sekunde über sich selbst gelegt und auf dem oberen das Roto-Pinsel-Werkzeug angewendet und die Datei gespeichert.
    Sobald ich die Datei danach geöffnet habe, bekomme ich folgende Meldung:
    "After Effects Fehler: Fehlende Daten in Datei. ( 33 $ 4)".
    Dieser Fehler ist beliebig oft reproduzierbar, an verschiedenen Computern.

    Version 17.0.1

  15. Rebuild blending modes to behave in 32 bit the same as they would in 16 bit

    Blending modes (especially screen & add) are completely unpredictable in 32 bit space. They're essentially useless now. Build a system (or a new blending mode) that allows screen and add to behave the like they do in 16 bit

  16. Cryptomatte not working in 17.0.1

    Everytime I do compositing with cryptomatte (using it as a luma matte for an asset) I have this error (see picture) and my after effects crash.
    Thanks if you can solve it.

  17. Gaussain Blur in 32bit mode bug

    Gaussian Blur does not work properly in 32 bits mode.
    Whenever I blur a 32bit layer, overbright objects get a dark halo as in darker than surrounding background. After measuring, these halos actually have negative color values!!! Fast Blur does not have this problem, please fix it fast :/

  18. Its 2019 about time we had a native edge blur tool.

    Need a native edge blur tool similar or better to the key correct suite by RG.

  19. Better Grouping in Shape Layers

    Grouping can be improved, by grouping the selected items automatically in a Group, in stead of adding a Group (= a folder) and then drag all items in there.
    Furthermore, I would the Group to automatically update any involved expressions. Currently expressions are broken by changing Shape Layer hierarchy, and have to be repaired manually.

  20. I want to be able to divide the position of the transform of the effect into dimensions

    I want to be able to divide the position of the transform of the effect into dimensions.

    Because the expression of animation of keyword spreads

    エフェクトのトランスフォームの位置を次元分割できるようにしてほしい。速度グラフでの表現の幅が広がる為。
