  2. Pasting Drop Shadow Blows Out Drop Shadow Already On A Layer

    When a layer already has a drop shadow, and you copy a drop shadow from a second layer to paste onto the first, instead of stacking the drop shadows it pastes the second's settings into the first.

    Often I want two drop shadows on the same layer, and after adjusting both's settings, I paste the first onto another layer. But instead of being able to paste the second I have to drag a new effect and change each of the settings to match. Very tedious.

  3. Separate Dimension of Position in Transform Effect not working often

    I've found that I cannot separate the dimensions of the position element in Transform effect that is under the distort category some of the time.

  4. Creating some node based solving for after fx compositing

    As a vfx artist I hear a lot that node based compositing is the must if you want to create serious compositing shots. As After Fx users there could be a plugin that makes possible node based compositing single in fx panel in one layer.

  5. OCIO Support

    I'm sure this is here somewhere, but I couldn't find it. Doing away with all this ICC based stuff would be jolly nice.

  6. Protected Regions + Time Remapping

    When using a comp with protected regions inside, you are still able to add a time remapping, for example, to change timming in a non protected part of the comp. But these two tools when used together causes a crash in the project that you are not able to open it again, as seen on the image.

  8. Substance Materials for After Effects Cinema Render Engine... update Render Engine to Substances?

    Would be great to get the Substance library integrated into After Effects and use it on designs in text and more. Would also be great to just get the Substance Render Engine as an additional engine in After Effects 3D.

  9. Add solo switches to Master Properties

    This would make compositing (and creating render passes) so much easier. At the moment it can be done by rigging every opacity slider to a controller null. This would just be waaaay quicker (and wouldn't need to be updated with any new layers added).

  11. Give the ramp effect some love

    The ramp effect is so basic. Sometimes it just doesn't cut it. Why don't you update it with some clever features similar to it's layer style cousin?

  14. Allow Blend Modes to transfer from Photoshop

    When importing photoshop files into after effects the blending modes get lost (such as passthrough, multiply, etc.). It would be great if those were preserved when imported into after effects. Right now when I reapply the blending mode in after effects, the result is different from than when I apply the blending mode in photoshop.

  15. Fix wave warp bug and improve with a wiggle wave option

    Fix Wave Warp plugin bugs in AE 2019 and improve. A: When setting Anti-aliasing to medium or high. The image goes away (I'm warping a precomp of detailed illustrator vector layers that are set to cont. raster) . b: sometimes I just get a blank grey screen when the plugin is on.
    It would also be nice to give an option to distort the image in a true wave fashion, rather than just vertically displace. think snake. so the bend angle is perpendicular to the wave to give a more realistic 'wiggle' wave.

  16. Automatic Instanced effects

    Example : I copy a blur, or a curve, i paste it on another layer, at this moment, i would want to have a choice betwen "copy" or "intanced" copy.
    Instanced is a automatic link betxen the affects, and of course any modification on my curve will bereported to all instanced copy of it.(like in 3ds max , for example).
    Of cource, a right clic on it can un link it from the others.

    Thank you for submitting this suggestion.

    Similar functionality exists in After Effects. The Edit > Copy with Property Links (and Copy with Relative Property Links) command will do as you describe.

    The Copy with Property Links commands link the pasted effect using expressions. You can use the commands on effects, or just single properties (including transform properties), or even a whole layer.

    If there is additional functionality you still desire in After Effects, please elaborate.

  17. BUG?: Enabling per-character 3d breaks 3d layering.

    Turning per-character 3d on breaks 3d rendering.
    Can be tested with a simple solid, a text layer, and turning the camera around.
    Things above the text layer appear as "always on top" and things below, always under irregardless of it's z position or camera behavior.

    Don't know if this is working as intended, or a bug.

  19. Mocha button - create null with track data

    A couple things that would speed up my work flow - Have a button in the mocha effects control panel that when clicked, creates a null with the transform tracking data, and have the 'Export Option' default to 'Transform' instead of 'Corner Pin.' I personally use transform data more often then I use corner pin data.

  20. Bug Report: AE 2019 Write-On Effect not working.

    I am unable to get the write-on effect to work with any stability. I noticed this in a 2018 file I was editing. It seems I can set up the keyframes, but then after scrubbing the timeline or working on other write-on reveals, it fails. See attached file.

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    Update 14 Nov 2018 – I received the files, thank you.

    After playing with the project for a little bit, I see how the Write-on effect is not behaving correctly. But I’m not able to deduce what the cause of the problem is. I’m not able to reproduce the problem from scratch, and if I make modifications to your project, it starts to render correctly.

    My best guess is that the keyframe data of the Write-on effect in your project became corrupted somehow. It’s relatively easy to fix, although a bit tedious:

    1. On each keyframe, modify the property value. (I made small adjustments, like rounding fractional X or Y values up to the nearest integer, or increasing the brush size by 1. Any change to the keyframe’s value should work here.)
    2. Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cache.

    If…
