  1. Make an archive of the AE SDK forum available.

    The old AE SDK forum contained hundreds of threads with valuable information that is not available in the AE SDK guide. Very many of those threads are no longer available at all, and the new interface is no longer navigable because it is not possible to limit searches to posts tagged with 'SDK' or in any other meaningful way. Moreover, questions about the SDK are simply not being answered any more, and there is no other support resource. I don't think I would have been able to get anywhere near where I am now without the help of the forum,…

  2. Proxy Effects or adding "render only" option to heavy intense effects

    Some effects like camera lens blur are computationally expensive. It would be great to be able to have a proxy effects such as Gaussian blur during previews, but at render time turn off Gaussian blur and turn on camera lens blur. Or perhaps have a setting that only turns it on at render time. I imagine it could be a drop down that says "off until render." I know I can turn off all effects on a layer or composition, but then I have to remember to turn them on before rendering.

  3. Allow "Preserve RGB" to be accessible in preferences or hotkey

    Remember Interpretation is only good in that session. What if AE crashes or you need to restart to install something?
    It would be great to add "Preserve RGB" to a toolbar button, hotkey or script. Can you please give us access to this as a menu item?
    It's too many clicks to get to it. In the age of ACEScg this will become even more needed.

    Thanks

  4. "Erode" effect to replace "Simple Choker"

    It would be very nice to re-write the "Simple Choker" effect to perform more closely to the Nuke "Erode" node. Specifically the precision is much higher and the results more reliable. When using "Simple Choker" any feathering is lost and the matte becomes hard, it seems to exponentially get less effective the wider you go, and it does not keep the original shape of your mask very well (there seems to be a blurring effect which rounds out edges). On the other hand the Nuke "Erode" node works in pixels and no precision is lost in terms of your mask…

  5. After Effects 2020 Much Much SLOWER

    Was working with 2020 for 5 min.
    Out of the box in comparison seam to be slower on a comp of a resolution of 5400x1080, as compares to AE 2019.

    Certainly twice(!!!!) slower from AE 2019 in reading JPG SEQ res:5400x1080.

    Did not checked it further.

    Both Apps synced with their preferences.
    Both of them have the Cache option disabled.

  8. Effect Setting Vairations

    Similar to Fusion.. Having the option to quickly jump between different variations of the same settings. Particularly useful in colour correction and grading, but useful for any effect and saves having to duplicate layers, or the same effect inside a layer.

    Next to the name of the effects having 4 "tabs" and each one can have different settings for the effect.

  10. Gaussain Blur in 32bit mode bug

    Gaussian Blur does not work properly in 32 bits mode.
    Whenever I blur a 32bit layer, overbright objects get a dark halo as in darker than surrounding background. After measuring, these halos actually have negative color values!!! Fast Blur does not have this problem, please fix it fast :/

  11. Layer style: stroke on composition creates strokes on Illustrator layer inside composition

    I came across a weird bug in After Effects. I applied a stroke (layer styles) to a composition. That composition contains some shape layers and Illustrator layers.
    The problem ist the following:
    The stroke is correctly applied to the composition, but it generates some weird looking strokes on one of the Illustrator layers inside aswell (check the screenshot). The wrong strokes appear to be on paths inside of an Illustrator layer.

    That behaviour seems pretty strange to me.

    After long time of trying to solve this, I figured out a workaround:
    Apply a stroke with layer styles to the layer…

  12. Выявлена ошибка: при добавлении эффекта "Пластика" композиция не ставится в очередь на рендеринг в Adobe Media Encoder

    При этом невозможно поставить не только композицию в которой применен эффект, но и любую композицию из этого проекта.

  14. set matte should have the option to fit composition or layer

    actually it fits the layer size and stretch the Matte layer.
    So if we use a layer with a different ratio in the composition it not useful.

    With this option, it would have the ability to ignore transformation like rotation size and position... so the Set Matte would work as a Track Matte Layer and we could animate behind it.

    It would safe a lot of layer count and space.

  16. Please give options to change missing font in template project!!!

    I came across a .aet project that has a missing font, and I just can't get the text to change font in the comp, it resizes as if it was changing but the font remain the same no matter what...

    After consulting with Adobe technical support, they responded that there is no such a function to change missing font. I sincerely hope in future version they include this option! Thank you!

  17. Native ST-Map Support

    After Effects needs native ST-Map support to handle a myriad of compositing functions, but I need it to handle the Distortion & Undistortion ST-Maps from 3D Tracking & match-moving software like PF Track. This is a standardized work flow in Nuke and is seriously lacking in AE. I know that there are 3rd party plug ins for this, but this is a compositing program and should be built in.

  18. Use Illustrator's algorithm to distribute Stroke Dashes in Shape Layers

    Illustrator lets the user choose between exact sizes for Dashes and Gaps, or approximate those to distribute Dashes evenly and create nice even corners. See screengrabs. The square left is without correction enabled, the right one is after enabling the corner correction.

    That would be a great addition to Ae to make the Dashed Stroke more usefull.

  19. a modern 3D particle system like Trapcode Particular but with a simple node based interface

    The actual particle system in AE is out of the early 2000s.
    So please develop a new 3D particle system with a simple node based UI and interesting operators like physics, turbulence, motion fields etc.

    It should be something like Trapcode Particular but with a simple node interface like Tyflow.

  20. Parenting Masks to Null objects to inherit position data.

    The reshape tool would become way more helpful with digital beauty work if AE had a way to parent Masks to a Null object that received tracking data from Mocha.
