  1. Depth of field 360 VR output

    I'm having troubles using the depth of field in 360 environment.
    In my 3D edit window, i add the depth of field on my VR master camera.
    When i watch the VR output, it doesn't affect the 3D plugin (right here, i'm using stardust but it doesn't work also with other 3D plugins).
    Also the depth of field seems to work with the 3D layers i put but doesn't respect the focus distance I set in my edit window. Any clues to solve this problem? You will find enclosed an image showing the problem. Thanks for your help

  2. Global Volume Adjustment

    Add audio levels adjustment functionality to Adjustment Layers. It would work just like for a video clip, in that it would be keyframable, but it would affect the volume of any layers beneath it. It would be great if it could also display a composite waveform of all the layers affected.

  3. split

    CC Split 3

    Hello,

    CC split 2 is a very "simple" and funny tool to create mouth animations and lip sync...

    But I have 2 simples suggestions to improve this tool.

    To be abble to change de curve profile with animation keys.

    And

    To be able to put négative split values!!! (to smile for exemple :o)

    Thanks,
    Alexis

  5. Adobe XD files in Aftereffects

    hello everyone,

    it would be great feature, if Adobe XD files open in AE for animation, and the last update in AE, we were just able to import AI and PSD files, So if you people update the Aftereffects with above feature that will be great for everyone.

  6. PageMaker is to InDesign as After Effects is to...?

    Sometimes it is important to start over from the ground up and completely rethink your solution to a problem. I believe it is time for Adobe to do this with AE. Rather than continue to add patchworks of features and solutions here and there, give us a new paradigm in compositing that lives along side AE while this new app is being developed much like you did with InDesign and PageMaker.

    Things I'd like to see in this new app are:


    1. A complete reworking of 3D, rather than treating the 3D workspace and objects in it as 2.5d, the successor…

  7. nested effects

    I am working on a star trek style forcefield. And realised it would be useful to have nested effects that can work in conjunction with each other, for example, to provide a forcefield effect that we can see i have used fractal noise, using a dynamic effect. Now, if something is required to pass THROUGH the field, a ripple effect nested TO the dynamic effect (so that it only affects the actual movement of the dynamics, not the externals of the effect, would be useful. as it is, any extra effect added simply affects the layer on which it is…

  9. Falloffs for any effects

    It would be a great improvement if we could define falloffs for any effects on any layers, as it is usual in 3D software such as Cinema 4D. I would like to define easily (animated) areas where effects occur or animations will take place without copying layers and work with masks. This would be a very powerful system.

  10. BUG: Masking a Lumetri adjustment layer transforms the underlying footage...

    weird mask bug here.

    I have footage. I put an adjustment layer above it. I put Lumetri in it. I go and draw a mask to make the adjustment just inside that mask.... the normal relighting routine.

    Usually this would work flawlessly. But today when I tried it it results in the underlying image data being masked, yes. But the footage is also squeezed into that area.

    With other effects, like Curves. It works as expected. But with the lumetri effect it squishes the footage like a canadian comedian squishes heads... See attached image

    I guess I can't mask adjustments…

  11. GPU ACCELERATED CYCORE EFFECTS

    You could (and you should) accelerate the Cycore effects of After Effects by GPU.

  12. Motion tile and image positioning

    I've had a few issues with motion tile and the positioning of my images. Before this recent update I could put motion tile onto one clip, set the output width and height to 400 and mirror the edges, I'd then copy it and paste it onto the rest of my clips with no issue. Now after this update when I paste motion tile with these settings it changes the position of the image. Also, I change the positioning of my images in Premiere Pro a lot so that it fits in my frame, and when I go into After Effects…

  13. Dark border with glow effect

    Sometimes, when the glow is applied to a layer with transparency, the effect would render a dark border outside. Since you mostly want glow to make things more shiny, this behaviour is really not suitable.

    So please make it shine, at least in the corresponding effect operation mode.

    It happens to me only with the following setting: Glow in original colors

    See image attached.

  14. Increase the Brush Size limit (200.00) on the Generate ⮞ Stroke Effect.

    As I am an animator of logos, I use the stroke effect very often, but sometimes when the resolution should be bigger I need more than the limit (200.00). Then I simply can't make that animation in big resolution.

    Then what can I tell my buyers?

    Here is what I experience:

  15. Mask bug

    Using multiple layers with masks. Getting purple glitch in mask. Just one frame and then gone. But, I can scrub to it. In the picture you see what is happening. It also looks like the image is flipped.

    I even tried uninstalling CUDA. :/

  17. Override render/calculation order

    So, AE calculates all properties in a specific order when rendering: first masks, then effects, then transforms, track mattes, etc. I don't know all of the details by heart.

    When you set up an animation, you sometimes run into instances where you want to have AE calculate the render differently - so it thinks about layer styles before motion blur, etc. There are workarounds, usually involving pre-comping.

    What if you could apply an effect on a per-layer or per-comp basis to override this render order? Ideally you could drag the steps into whatever order would work for your scenario.

  18. Can't open one project. Opening it with a new project doesn't work.

    Does it have anything to do with any (Adobe) plugins? Really need the project fast.

  19. 表达式编写 改进建议

    希望Ae可以增强表达式的快捷性。
    当我使用英文版软件设计的模板,发送给别人之后。用其他语言打开这个模板,就会发生表达式找不到对象的错误。所以希望贵公司可以增加一个表达式批量修改替换或者自动将表达式中的控件名从原来的语言换成当前语言的空间名称。避免手动一个个修改。
