  1. 14.2.2

    Need to work in 14.2.2 to be compatible with a clients back end. On the CC installer it claims to be 14.2.2 but when opened & running, it states it’s 14.2.1.34. Which is correct?

    After Effects 14.2.1.34 was the last release of the 14.x versions of After Effects CC. (That is, it was the last release of After Effects to be branded as “CC 2017”.)

    The version number “14.2.2” was an Adobe-internal label to differentiate a change in the installer package, and was not advertised as a new release.

    > Need to work in 14.2.2 to be compatible with a clients back end.

    Please clarify this. Since 14.2.1 was the last release, this doesn’t make sense to me.

  2. Fix the bugs first

    Forget about new idea... fix the bugs first
    Just out of the blue the render queue messes up as nothing opens up when i click to set the output location. It really is making me frustrated.

  3. On write-on, move CTI to last keyframe of each stroke.

    In the paint panel, when you have the write-on option selected, every time you make a stroke and let go, it disappears, because keyframes are added, but the CTI stays at the time of the first keyframe. Instead, make it so the CTI moves to the last keyframe of each new stroke, so the strokes stay visible and it is much more natural to keep drawing.

  6. Make Ae Comp Size change more flexible, by setting the anchor (like Ps Canvas Size).

    Ae assumes that when changing the Comp size, the center should stay in the middle. But there are situations where whe want to extend the comp in one direction. In those cases, selecting an Anchor would be great. Just like in Ps Canvas Size.

  8. Relinking H.264 footage loses Variable Frame Rate mode options

    If you need to relink H.264 footage, after allowing After Effects search and relink this footage, the relinked footage will lose the Variable Frame Rate options (Interpret Footage > More Options) and default to Preserve Audio Sync. Also, the More Options button is greyed out.

  9. Layer Control Pick Whip Does Nothing! (Oversight?)

    There's a pick whip icon to the right of the Layer Control UI element (in the effects) but apparently it serves no function whatsoever.
    Either:
    A) The pick whip icon should go so as to not mislead the user.
    B) Better yet, to justify its presence there, expression support should be added to the layer selector, as expected.

    Thank you for filing this bug.

    This is a known problem with the Property Link Pick Whip. The pick whip control is visible on all properties, but it is not usable on properties that can not be animated (i.e., do not have the time-vary stopwatch control to the left of the property name). If the property can not be animated, it can’t have an expression, which is what the pick whip creates.

    Layer controls can not currently be animated in After Effects. If this is a feature that you would like to see added, please create a new feature request explicitly for that, so the request is both clear and can be voted on by other people.

  10. auto hide bug (mac)

    This bug has been driving me crazy! every time i click out of after effects (on the desktop) AE hides itself. So if im trying to drag in footage i have no where to drop. Running all the latest.

    I heard adobe is aware of the bug and that it only happens to some people. Even if the fix is a plist delete, anything would be helpful

  15. Be able to define and use alpha values for colours

    It would be really nice to be able to set the alpha value in colour pickers! When using expressions, AE already has the value there as the array for colours is [R, G, B, A], but changing the alpha value doesn't actually do anything to the produced colour.

    I know that opacity is already a property, but it could be useful to be able to control opacity through the colour value in addition. For instance, if making a null solid, the colour could be set to [1,1,1,0] from the colour menu and not require the opacity property to be set…

  17. Better edit Source Text

    When choose 'Edit value' in the contextual menu of Source Text, we can edit the text on the Canvas. This is not always the most convenient way to edit text. I remember in earlier versions, the text could be edited in a separate popup window. This comes in handy when the text is hidden, or Offset or blurred or whatever.

  18. Improve Tutorials Guidance

    I'm watching the After Effect beginner tutorials (specifically: Create 3D Type with Cinema 4D Renderer) and the narrator is very quickly navigating through the different steps of add shape layers etc but without any explanation ahead of time of why he is doing so. Rather, it is left to the viewer to discern after the effect (pun intended) as to what the function the various layers are.

  19. Bug Report - Broken text animator on 3d-text layers

    Text gets cut off along the top of the text box boundary when animating in from the Y-Axis -- only when the text layer is 3D. Seems to be a new bug with the latest AE update. Would appreciate it if you guys could check that out. Thanks!

  20. AE and AN should have smooth zoom on stage (Ctrl+Spacebar+Mouseclic) like PS and AI. That is a basic but powerfull thing.
