  1. Maintain support for Windows 7

    40% of Windows machines still run Windows 7. There is no way Microsoft will be able to officially end support in January. Many of us still run Windows 7 for performance and stability reasons. Please keep supporting Windows 7.

  2. global text formatting controls

    control the styles of text layers globally - select multiple text layers in multiple comps and apply styles including font, size, outline, colour and maybe evengradient overlay and drop shadow and other text effects a bit like in Ai. compatibility with Ai and Ps styles a total bonus too.

  3. Pay per time used.

    Adobe After Effects is described as a professional effects editing tool. Does that mean that I as a basic rare user of this program have to pay as much to use this program as a professional? I do not mean that the program is not worth it, not at all, just that I would like to have the luxury of knowing the program is there for me to use it whenever I need it. Even if that means that I use it maybe on average 2 hours a weak. So was thinking that having the option to buy how much…

  8. Please add the Arabic translation to the education and training section on the website https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/view-all-tutori

    I find it difficult to do learning and development because the use of interpretation is very cumbersome

  9. Time Reverse layer

    There is a persisting bug with the 'Time reverse layer' command - often drops first frame, sometimes drops or displays random wrong frame elsewhere in the reversed layer.

  11. link layers in the timeline

    It would be very nice to be able to link layers in the timeline. Sometimes a lot of layers together makes up an effect and its preferable not to move it into a Pre-comp. And when needing to move layers in the timeline it would have been nice to be able to link certain layers together so when you move them forward/backward in time, all the linked layers will follow.

  12. Option to fully disable logs

    The render logs have never been useful to me in any way. Of the few times I have render problems, the logs never gave me any useful information. They just create clutter that I have to delete myself.

    I'm not suggesting getting rid of them entirely, just let me disable them.

  13. Relative Paths for All Media

    So, we work using source control application Perforce. Everyone has their own workspace area, which is the standard way of working using Source Control.

    Relative Paths would save us so many headaches when working in this way. At the moment whenever we work on projects together, especially AE comps, the assets can be loaded from any user into the same comp file. This creates many headaches.

    So, imagine I've opened a comp that a few of us have worked on, the media could be dragged in from User1, User2 and User3's workspaces. Yes, I can do a 'collect resources' or…

  14. Keyframe can contain expressions and that keyframe's value is the result of the expression

    Allow keyframes to contain expressions. This would allow the user to blend hand-crafted animations with procedural parts.

  15. Bug - Failing to export high quality videos

    Since 2019 was introduced, currently all codecs used for exporting outside of low quality ones like avi and mpeg4 are resulting in videos with flickers and broken animations, as if the graphics card is failing - this is taking place when mercury software only is being used as well as enhancements.

    This is the case when AE content is present in Premiere Pro or through Media Encoder.

  17. library 2019 Bugs & improvements AE

    When u use color picker to get colors from the adobe library it used to just get the correct color, but now in 2019 it wont.
    For some reason the colors are all under saturated.

    Maybe update it that you can click on the color like in photoshop or illustrator that it will apply it to the selected layer as a fill or shape layer color.

    Also when your mouse hover above the Libraries tap anywhere (search, my library, view by group, enz.) you cant scroll up or down in the list of tabs. But for instance if you scroll…

  18. Add a key to nudge Rotation in 1/10 of a degree

    While manual tracking, or rotoscoping, I find myself often entering rotation values numerically, since the keyboard only allows us to rotate in whole degrees.
    It would be very effective if a modifier key could make this more accurate: in steps of 0.1 degree. (just like it's possible to rotate in steps of 10, by pressing a modifier)

  19. Missing plugin notice gives no information on where the missing plugin layer is

    Opening up an older project, you sometimes get a notification about a missing plugin, but then no information on how to track down where the problem plugin is.

    How many layers have the issue?

    Can the layers and comps have a warning symbol so you can see where the problem is?

    Can there be some sort of log that lists what comp and what layers are missing plugins?

    It's really annoying to hunt around for them, delete/replace them, reopen the scene and it still give the same error because you couldn't find them all.

    Thank you for filing this feature request.

    Currently in After Effects, you can use the Search fields at the top of the Project or Timeline panels to search for either:
    - The keyword “Missing Effects” (which is a saved term if you click on the magnifying glass icon). This will show all comps in the Project panel, or layers in the Timeline panel that reference effects that could not be loaded.
    - The name of the effect that was reported as missing.

    Does the above functionality meet your needs, or do you still desire additional functionality?

  20. Every effect allow a layer to control effect intensity - similar to Set Matte

    Allow users to control the intensity of all effects by using an optional matte input that works similar to the Set Matte filter.

    Want to use another layer matte to drive the effect. Default would be "none"
