  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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。

  4. 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

  5. Allow multiple inverted masks on a project to allow for 2 points of cut out on a moving object

    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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Bug - Footage scaled up to comp size adds a thin semi-transparent edge to entire comp

    If I place a half-res clip in the comp and scale it up to 200% to fit the comp, for some reason this makes the border of the entire comp slightly transparent. I can see just a little bit of the grid through the edge, and this also appears in the alpha channel if I view that.

    This only happens when the footage size exactly matches the comp. If I modify the scale, it goes away.

    Importantly, this still happens when other layers are below, so it's not just a matter of not filling the frame, the layer is somehow…

  11. ... to bring in the feature of searching and relinking footage pathes

    ... to bring in the feature of searching and relinking footage pathes (e.g. I just needed to change the driveletter - but it´s not possible. Confimed by Customers Support. Belongs to Premiere as well. This is maybe a very old wish around here, wich still hasnt been taken to heart

  12. linear wipe

    A Comp Size/Layer Size checkbox for the linear wipe effect. This would save a LOT of precomping.

  13. Point Control effect gives float results for some integer points

    Point Control effect from effects menu acts strange when I try to make its x coordinate 7, 14, 28,29 etc. It doesn't show up as 7 but shows 7,00000000000001. I'm attaching a screen record for the values I get.

  14. Beam Line Tracking Null Object

    Hi guys,

    I'm getting really frustrated about the fact that my After Effects seems to behave in a different way than it should do, when it comes to creating a solid object, using the beam effect on it and then trying to track the Starting Point on a null object. When you watch it on the online tutorial, the top of the line goes right on the anchor point of the null object. Unfortunately, mine goes randomly on the screen, but nowhere nearly the anchor point of the null object.

    If this doesn't make any sense to you, I've uploaded…

  15. [BUG] undoing paint stroke after 10 or so brushes won't show result (physically deleting them from effects doesn't either)

    I need help with this...

    I have a layer over my video to do drawing frame by frame. The drawing is basically little firework-like animations that go over my waveform that contains firework sounds. It's important that I sync it up correctly so I need to switch back to my composition and play it back in real time. But when I switch back to my composition, I believe it shows an older cached preview.

    Worse yet, is if I delete a brush stroke from my drawing layer, it doesn't SHOW that it's deleted, in fact it just stays there in…

  17. Separate Keyframes for Mask Feather Tool

    The Mask Feather Tool should have its own separate keyframes.

    As of now, its keyframes are the same, as the mask shape keys, so if you already animated a mask shape, you cannot animate the "feather tool" separately.

    Alternatively, please give us a "Uber Key" as seen in Mocha.
    Thanks.

  18. Add a Shear distorter for Shapes

    Shear is a quite common distortion (I think more used than the ZigZag deformer which is already present).

    Please add this to the Shapes' menu.

  19. AE should remember effects layer inputs (like set matte) when copy/pasting layers. Currently need to manually reconnect after pasting,

    This is how parenting works when you copy/paste a new set of layers. It creates parents relative to the new layers you've pasted. That is smart, now if only effects worked the same way! For some reason the default behavior on plugins is to revert the layer inputs on effects like “set matte” or “create nulls from paths” to the source layer that the effect is applied to after pasting.

    I frequently use both of the aforementioned effects to make templates, and I'm constantly copy/pasting sets of template layers into new comps, but every time I do I have to…

  20. Puppet pin bug causing the "Cached Preview needs 2 or more frames to playback." error message

    Dragging a specific puppet pin (ex puppet pin 3) to a different position in the FX area will cause AE to stop creating cache. For instance putting 4 between puppet pin 2 and puppet pin 3. Re-ordering it correctly fixes the issue.
