  1. Bug Report: Resizing the composition causes the 3D layer to shift.

    If you resize the composition using the "Crop Comp to Region of Interest" feature in version 17.5.1, there will be a difference in the display between 2D and 3D layers with the same X and Y numbers.
    It didn't happen in versions prior to 17.1.4.

    The following reproduction procedure
    1, Creating a composition
    2, Create a new layer
    3, Resize the composition using "Crop Comp to Region of Interest"
    4, Check the 3D layer.

    Other than "Crop Comp to Region of Interest", the same phenomenon occurs when resizing with "Composition Settings / Advanced / Anchor" selected other than the center.…

  2. BUG - Shadow/Highlight effect with "Effect Opacity" of "0%" breaks time remapping

    In AFX 2021, when using the "Shadow/Highlight" effect on a layer that uses time remapping, setting the "Effect Opacity" (in Compositing Options) to a value of "0" will cause the time remapping to break. When the value is set to "0", the frame of the video displayed when the value is changed will be the freeze-frame. Purging image cache memory can change which frame is displayed, until a value of "0" is set again, then the current frame will freeze again. Similar issue when using keyframes on the "Effect Opacity" with a "0" value. Bug. Needs fixing.

  3. Effect similar to CC Composite, but instead takes a result from further up the effects chain

    I'd like to propose an effect that can take a result from further up the effects chain and recomposite it back over the final result. Similar to how CC Composite can put the original image back over the final result.

    Even if behind the scenes this means rendering the same thing twice, it would be convenient to have this functionality on a single layer. I often find myself making copies of a layer and using the Calculations effect to blend layers together, or create more intricate mattes.

    It could have controls like transfer mode, opacity, preserve transparency, etc. Maybe similar…

  10. Add gradient knot keeping the color at that position

    When a knot is added, it gets the color of a neigbour not, while in most cases it's of more value to get the knot loaded with the color that existed on that position in the gradient. (Standard behaviour in Illustrator)
    Please make that possible, with a modifier key.

  13. Redesign Track Matte - Select Matte layer with the lasso (same as in Parent&Link)

    Now, to use single matte on multiple layers, we have two options - duplicate matte layers above every layer, or use Set Matte effect which doesnt work the same way as TrackMatte and its really inconvenient.

    There is really simple solution for this! Use the same lasso tool we have in parent&link on TrackMatte. It will make the process so much simpler and easier. Please do this or at least fix Set Matte. Thanks

  14. Add an option to set defaults for 'Accept lights' and 'Accepts shadows'

    Add a preference to be able to set a default for 'Accept lights' and 'Accept shadows' - currently they both default to on.

    It would be great to be able to choose 'off' for both, for example.

    Use case: working on AE 3D motion graphics that I don't want to be effected by lights, but need to use lights to drive an effect (for example Optical flares).

    Currently, any new 3D layers created in a comp with lights would need to be set to 'accept lights / shadows' off to retain the original look. This can become time-consuming when creating…

  15. import of PSD (sequences) with multiple Alpha Channels

    HI, what about the ability of accessing the multiple Alphachannels that for example Cinema 4D can render into PSD(-sequences)? This would be perfect. I guess.

  16. Mocha oddness

    Where to start?

    Lanching mocha usually launches the app off the screen so I spend five minutes trying to get it back, force quitting AE and disconnecting all but one monitor.

    Then I resize it and it disappears somewhere else.

    I finally get it to work and do my track, save and close Mocha... and I can no longer click on anything inside AE, despite Mocha being closed.

    Just another bug in a long, sprawling, and ever-increasing line of bugs.

  17. Bug : When use Blur(Gaussian) where applied off-screen

    Bug Report

    There is a bug that occurs when you add other effects while blur (Gaussian) is applied off-screen.

    In my situation.
    If I apply a blur effect to the shape layer, and then apply S_BlurMotion, the entire screen is blurred.

  18. After Effects Split compositon window when working in 3d layers and cameras

    As novas formas de dividir a "compostion window" para trabalhar com 3d são horríveis.

    Tela dividida em 2 na vertical.
    A maior parte do trabalho ainda é com resoluções horizontais, e dividir a tela na vertical não ajuda. O ideal é voltar com a opção de dividir a tela em 2 na horizontal.

    tela dividia em 4
    Eu particularmente gosto muito mais de dividir a tela em 1 grande (a visão da câmera resultado final) e 3 pequenas para me ajudar a posicionar elementos.
    4 telas do mesmo tamanho são desnecessárias e acabam prejudicando a ver a imagem principal, que…

  20. interpret Footage -> Premultiplied not working

    My Prores 4444 Footage w Alpha that is premultiplied on Black, only acts normal when I am in Half resolution preview. As soon as I switch to Full Res or Render, the Alpha is treated as Straight/Unmatted.

    Interestingly… if I select the interpret footage option "invert Alpha", the Alpha is only inverted when previewed at Full Resolution, not at reduced resolutions.

    When I employ the workaround of adding the effect "Remove Color Matting" (Black) myself manualy, I also get very weird halos and artefacts when previawing at half resolution, which are not a side-effect of simply downscaling.

    This occurs in…
