  2. BUG: Pickwhip in expression editor

    When Pickwipping a slider inside and expression with brackets, the auto expression will miss the closed bracket because of the outside brackets. This means you need to add another bracket on the end which is fine, but some people may not see it get missed until an error spits out.

  4. Can't import animated gifs into AE

    When I tried to import an animated gif, as I did with the actual file earlier on other computer, I get the message from the picture, in spanish "Error de After Effects: No se puede leer el origen. Compruebe la configuración y vuelva a intentarlo. ( 86 :: 1 )"; which translates to: "After Effects error: Cannot read from source. Please check the settings again. ( 86 :: 1 )"

    I hope someone could help me because I don't think is much of a big deal. Thanks in advance.

  8. facial stabelize

    Inside the face tracker have the option to stabilize Faces removing all rotation and posional movement so they can be altered then have ability to reverse stabilize outside of a precomp.
    would be very usefull for digital makeup and ageing actors or making them look younger etc.

  10. Add ability to copy/paste equivalent effect properties from Premiere clips directly into After Effects layers

    An example is Lumetri Color. It would be great to be able to simply copy (ctrl+c) that effect's properties in Premiere, then paste (ctrl+v) onto a layer in After Effects, so I don't need to manually re-enter all of the properties, particularly the color wheels.

  12. At new composition window, next to Width and Height, a button to flip horizontal to vertical and reverse when click again.

    At new composition window, next to Width and Height, a button to flip horizontal to vertical and reverse when click again.

    To make it easier creating compositions when choosing standard 1920x1080 then i want it vertical, its very common and repeated situation.

  13. AEに限らないかもしれませんが、リニアモード時にすべての挙動をリニアに変更して欲しい。

    AEに限らないかもしれませんが、リニアモードにした時にエフェクトやマスクのボケ幅、カラーピッカーなどのグラデがリニアではなくなってしまうので、リニアモードでリニアなグラデに見えるように変更するべきではないでしょうか?とても扱いにくいです。

  14. Controllers MUST not affect layers with collapsed transformations!

    This little problem leaves us with no possibility to add controllers to the layers for which the collapse transformations flag is on. Even though the controller effects do not affect the image directly now they somehow manage to break functionality. Although I understand the internal logic behind it, it steals some precious possibilities from us. Please add a workaround for this

  15. Support for CDLs

    Due to the volatility of Colorista Free in new versions, and it being what makes ACES workflow possible, it breaks the ability to have AE be a compositing tool for ACES.

    Please develop a 32 bit CDL effect that will not require Lumetri.

    Allow us to have more than 1 inverted mask on a project to allow for multiple points to be blanked out for a moving object.

  17. Incorporate Real 3D Workspace and Node-based Workflow in Next Major Update

    I'm really fond of Adobe Products. But It is kinda disappointing when It comes to comparing it with other VFX and Compositing Applications. Even free versions of applications like Black Magic DaVinci Resolve or Fusion have all the features that an artist would desire and they're gaining popularity by leaps and bounds.

    So, there's dire need of some serious upgrade that actually deserves the title "Major Update".

    We want a real 3D Workspace as well as the capability to choose between layer-based or node-based workflow.

    It will surely give Adobe an edge over its competitors making it the first choice…

  18. CC Vignette bugs

    Found a very easy way to replicate buggy behavior with CC Vignette.
    1.Put any image or media in the timeline
    2.Create an adjustment layer on top of it and add CC Vignette.
    3. set a couple position keys on the adjustment layer and animate it.
    4. You should see lots of strange behavior on the layers beneath the adjustment layer.

    I ran into this issue lots when working with full-screen comps that had to shift over to split-screen.

  19. Add Dehaze Effect

    Not sure why there isn't a Dehaze effect in After Effects or Premiere Pro - it's in Lightroom and Elements.

    Makes ZERO sense.

  20. Keep effects parameters when copying to other comps

    Certain effects parameters, such as set matte, reset when copying layers over to other comps. Anything with a set matte on needs to be manually reset. Please fix.
