  2. Comps placed into other comps via script do not have protected areas or comp markers applied

    So I've found that when a comp with protected regions is placed into another comp via a script, none of the protected regions or comp markers on that comp are applied to that placed layer, to manually correct this one could add a marker onto that layer, then right click on it and select "Update Markers From Source" and this tends to update the protected regions as well, but there is no way to "Update Markers From Source" via scripting without any ui

    Ideally the comp markers and protected regions should be present on the layer after the comp has…

  3. Update the Add Grain effect to use GPU and 32-bit

    I need to apply grain frequently in my work to clean plates I’ve created, and it needs to match the 6k/4k HDR plates I’ve been provided. I prefer Add Grain to Match Grain, as it’s quicker and more accurate for me to manually set it. Because of the size of the plates, and the lack of GPU acceleration in this plug-in, it’s the main bottleneck in my rendering speed, plus 32-bit would help with color fidelity. Obviously, multiframe rendering would be great, too, but I would at least love GPU acceleration to start!

  5. Make the Offset effect support 16/32 bit color

    The Offset effect is a very useful tool in many occasions. Please make it ready for todays standards.

  6. Tapered mask feathering

    Ability to taper a mask feather so that one end can be more feathered than another. Real world example: Rotoscoping a moving character and being able to mask a limb that has more motion blur at one end from another.

    I get there are other ways of achieving this same effect, and even other methods of getting a better cut out, but the flexibility would be fantastic, and could apply to a number of other scenarios. Think of the mask feather controls from Premiere.

  7. Rotobrush Quality Default Preference

    Would like to inverse the default value of the rotobrush v2 quality to be best.

    Perhaps its a preference.

    Reasoning: I can't think of a reason why I would want a less-than-ideal roto. Even if its for speed... if it has to be redone at best anyway, why run it faster at first?

  17. Add blending modes to Fill Effect

    Always wondered why the effect lacks those. (and why the Opacitiy parameter of the effect affects the Opacity of the layer)

  18. "Track Matte" feature for the "Set Matte" Effect.

    CC composite is great for compositing its own layer over itself again, the track mattes is good for tracking an alpha/luma of a layer above itself.
    However, many times I'd like to composite, say an icon, over a circle shape - then animate each one independently (perhaps the circle scales up and the icon slides down to the centre of the circle), then, have the icon track the circles alpha channel so you only ever see the icon inside the circle.
    Set matte doesnt often work as you are manipulating transform properties, and set matte seems to only work when…

  19. Upgrade Roughen Edges effect.

    More in-depth, customizable roughen edges effect. Ability to apply effect to shape layers to get edges like Photoshop brushes. Maybe even use the stamp of a Photoshop brush to determine the texture and variation of the edge. Edge example from Photoshop attached.

  20. Allow users to change/override order of operations

    AE does its operations in a specific order - eg: first it looks at transforms, then masks, then effects, etc. (I can't recall the exact order and couldn't find it online).

    Sometimes you need to extensively precomp or re-think how you're building something in order for it to work properly. This can be a huge pain and can cause a bunch of extra work.

    Instead of that, could there be an effect that you could apply to a layer that would allow you to re-order those operations? Call it "Re-Order Render Operations" or something.
