  1. Support for 180° in VR Converter effect

    I have 180° fisheye footage that I want to convert to Equirectangular. There is no 1:1 option, so I have to choose 2:1, then precompose and crop my comp to square.

    Most of the acquired effects from Mettle expect you to be working in a 360° workflow, and it's not ideal for someone who works primarily in 180°

  2. Chromatic aberration

    Needles to say more: Please allow separation of the RGB channels in plugins like "Optics Compensation" or "Radial Blur" to make easy chromatic aberration effect possible.

  3. 32bpc and screen layer mode

    In 32bpc mode, if footages had got HDR(1.0+ or 0.0-) pixels, screen layer mode doesn't work properly.

  4. Could Ae have it's own exponential glow?

    So you don't have to recreate it each time buy duplicating and connecting controls, should be easy to machine learn it - on how people tend to use such effects and implement clever controls (look at how plugin Saber from video copilot deals with glow - that's terrific!)

  5. Allow track mattes to be used multiple times

    Track mattes should be able to be used by multiple other layers and no longer required to live directly above they layer they affect.

    It's very common to need to reuse a matte. The way things are now, I have to duplicate my mattes for every single layer that uses them.

    I should just be able to select which layer I want to use as a matte (along with alpha/luma options) and be able to reuse that matte for as many other layers as needed.

  6. Smear/smudge feature in the clone stamp tool

    It should be possible to blur/smear/smudge strokes to allow for color uniformity when making a clean plate, for instance. Take note from Nuke's rotopaint node.

  8. 32 bpc FX (ALL OF THEM)

    You could update all the effects to make a precise compatibility between them and 32 bpc footage and compositions.

  9. After Effects error: internal verification failure, sorry! {itemH cannot NULL} ( 5027 :: 82 )

    after effects error: internal verification failure, sorry! {itemH cannot NULL} ( 5027 :: 82 )

    This is coming up every single time I try to change the 'Particle Type' to a 'Textured Polygon' when using Trapcode Particular.

  10. Fuse Integration

    Used Fuse and Photoshop to create 3D characters but it would be phenomenal if these characters could be imported into After Effects and where the AE lights, cameras, and the C4D renderer could be used to composite a scene. Please consider integrating Fuse and After Effects.

  12. Allow user to change the default mode when creating a mask. (e.g. add, subtract, none)

    When I create a mask in After Effects the mask's mode is automatically set to "add". I generally want my masks set to "none" while I am working as I am doing rotoscoping. It would be great if I could choose what the default mode is for newly created masks.

  15. Default color for Outer glow/ Inner glow should be white.

    The default color for Outer/Inner glow layer styles is an odd yellow/gold that nobody wants to use. Light defaults should always be white, dark defaults should always be black. Examples, drop shadow effect, Tint, Gradient Ramp, etc.

  16. Stroke and Cinema 4D render

    When a stroke is applied to a shape on a 3D layer and the Cinema 4D renderer is selected, when trim paths is used the width of the stroke changes. When the Classic 3D renderer is used, this does not happen.

    Thanks for filing this bug report, and for sending us the project file.

    Our engineers are examining the problem. Regarding the project you sent, they gave this feedback:

    This problem is independent of using Trim Paths.

    The problem can occur with shapes or text converted to Shapes, as in the provided project. With the CINEMA 4D renderer the Shape stroke width does not match the Classic 3D renderer – there is both a stroke symmetry shift around the path, and size can vary as well.

    The stroke mismatch is typically quite small. However, the provided project has Transform > Scale set to over 300%, thereby exaggerating the problem.

    To work around this you could avoid using a large scale value on the shape layer. Adding scale per shape path almost eliminates the problem visually, but is impractical to do for each shape.

    Another workaround could be to maybe prep the…

  17. Remove "Compositing Options" from Expression Controls

    I love having access to the per-effect Compositing Options, but there's no reason (I can think of, anyway) for them to exist on expression controls, aside from taking up additional vertical space in the timeline.

  19. Curves and Levels - allow user to adjust Lab curves instead of only RGB

    Curves and levels allows you to adjust RGB channels, which can be destructive to colors if you just want to adjust the lightness

    Allow user to change the curves/levels mode to Lab color mode and offer those channels as an alternative to RGB
