  1. Post render layer (Applying GLSL pass)

    A pass similar to an adjustment layer one can add to a comp and manipulate the input (all layers rendering below) freely, using some sort of shader language variation.

  2. Blender Evee rendering inside after effects (basic geometry import (alembic), with basic material settings )

    Videocopilot element 3d, is ok. But realtime PBR rendering of 3d text, and importing animated alembic files, would allow after effects to surpass, Fusion, and Nuke, for 3d compositing and motion graphics animation.

  3. Duplicate frame remover

    A tool that can detect duplicate frames in a clip and delete one of them many times over.

    This becomes super useful in cases where the shutter speed was wrongly set or the variable frame rate of a cellphone camera causes duplicate frames in a clip. Instead of having to scroll frame by frame manually and deleting duplicate frames, a tool that can do this automatically would be super SIMPLE and POWERFUL.

  5. Native Noise Reduction

    I would like to see native noise reduction in After Effects that rivals all third-party NR plugins

  6. Exponential glow with shoulder

    ExpoGlow

    Would love to see the glow plug-in get an overhaul. I assume this is in the top 10 most used effects (it sure is for me) and there is plenty of room for improvement!

    First feature would be to add an "exponential" checkbox with a gamma slider. This would of course make the glow fall off with an inverse square ratio - but with the addition of the gamma slider it could be user controllable. It is important that this effect is 32bpc "under the hood" so that we get accurate highlights - even in an 8bpc and 16bpc…

  7. Solid Layer Bug

    There is a bug with solid layers, specifically when scaling them down to thin lines, and rotating them, the line breaks into multiple lines.

  8. Add a native UVW mapping plugin.

    AE needs a native UVW mapping plugin, so that you can export UV maps from 3D apps and you can map images onto 3D object renders. You could make awesome templates (and ultimately mogrts) with 3D renders where the user could swap out image textures on 3D objects!

    Why native? Because then you can sell those templates without requiring others to buy a 3rd party plugin.

    The most obvious uses would be for things like bendy pages on a wedding album or images wrapped onto text. But it would open up unlimited possibilities to very creative people.

  10. Add NEW Flicker Removal Plugin

    Rolling shutter, differing refresh rates, high speed, and timelapse footage can all be heavily affected by flicker.

    A deflicker plugin that can handle these common situations would be especially beneficial going forward.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. clone stamp

    It would be helpful for frame-by-frame painting in AE if there was the ability to rotate your clone source in the clone stamp too. Also have a crosshair appear showing your clone source. These are example clone tool features available in Photoshop.

  18. 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.

  19. 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).
