  1. BUG: AE cc2020 - Wrong levels with ProRes files if project is set to 32 bits/channel

    ProRes and ProRes(HQ) files are too dark in AE if the project Color Depth is set to '32 bits per channel (float)'. ProRes 4444 and h264 files are read fine. All works fine with a color depth of either 8 or 16 bit. All color depths work fine in cc2019.

    AE Version: 17.0.2
    OSX Version: 10.14.6

  3. BUG rectangle tool

    Every time I want to use the rectangle tool, After Effects Auto-Saves and crashes.

    This also happens when using the shortcut Q.

    (I'm using AE 17.5.0 on macOS Catalina 10.15.7)

    Thank you for filing this bug. We’ve received similar reports via the Adobe Crash Reporter (thanks to everyone who sent those in) and have checked in a fix in After Effects Beta.

    Please download the latest build of After Effects Beta from the Creative Cloud app and let us know whether the problem is fixed.

    Note: the fixed bug occurs only when the Footage panel is open and docked next to the Composition panel. If that’s not the case, please post back with a screenshot and/or screen recording of the problem so we can investigate further.

  4. separate X and Y scale dimensions option

    I separate the X and Y position on layers A LOT, and I often need to do it for the scale of a layer and it's a huge PITA that I can't just right click and separate the dimensions for scale like I can for position

    please add this--thanks

  5. Bug report - depth of field and layer order

    I'm reporting a bug with depth of field and 3D layers.

    When the layer that is behind in z space is below the layer that is forward in z space, the blur layer order is wrong. This exists in AE 2019 and 2020

    Please see attached file for examples

  7. How can we improve After Effects? By listening and responding to your users!

    At this point we haven't heard from your team in over a year. Not a single idea or suggestion has been acknowledged or marked for consideration in that time. Even requests that have been fulfilled have not been marked complete. Meanwhile on the Premiere uservoice page or pretty much EVERY OTHER MAJOR APP there are constant updates. Go look and compare! The lack of communication at this point is borderline disrespectful, how can you maintain this apathy towards your paying customers?

  8. Add text to shapelayer

    Adding Text to a shapelayer via the little triangle button would be amazing.

    When for example creating a button i need 2 layers. the shapelayer itself for the button and a textlayer. But when having an dropdownItem in the shapelayer, like the PATH or the RECTANGLE and so on, but with TEXT this would be so helpful!!!

  9. playback (0 and space) stops working

    It's been a while since the last version for me that the num key 0 or space won't work until I close after-effects and open it again.

  12. External links - export

    Please correct collaboration between After Effect and Media Encoder when using external links. I use a plugin that imports data from external files and the texts do not update during the export.

  13. have auto save save more frequently

    editing takes a long time. when the program crashes, all progress is lost unless previously autosaved or saved. with more frequent autosave, less progress will be lost if the program crashes.

  14. disable automatic font activation

    I need to be able to disable the Adobe TypeKit font activation. I need to be able to enable my own copy or client-supplied fonts, and I don't want to risk any slight change in the font display with the current Adobe version. I don't always have every font turned on. I want a warning when a font isn't available, but allow me to decide if I want to use your version or my own if I have it. I don't want the automatic activation.

  15. Convert to Audio Key Frames is counter-intuitive and confusing

    I don't understand what adobe did but current Convert audio to key frames is bizarre. When you select an audio layer you have an option to create to keyframes. However this creates a full set of keyframes on a composition level and not layer level, including all audio sources from that composition. Now this is not right, why then there is an option to have keyframes on one layer , but it creates an ampitude including all active audio layers? Its just counterintuitive and confusing. I would understand this behavior if it was a global effect, but its a layer…

  16. Bug - When master property is linked to json data by expression, it does not render properly with aerender

    When a master properties value is linked to a json data file in the comp and the comp is rendered with aerender, the value of the master property in the rendered file is reverted to it's unaltered value, ie. does not reflect the value of the data

    This does work correctly when rendering normally, only seems to be when rendering with aerender

  19. New way to think about After Effects

    I think of After Effects as a platform and not a product. It has a nice baseline of features and capabilities, but it's a shell for developers to build it into something for them. It has a plethora of plugins and extensions. And using the language of the web, Javascript, make scripting much more accessible than other packages.

    Thinking of AE as a platform means the focus would be on creating a solid, stable, performant foundation. Maybe even creating more powerful development and scripting tools.

  20. Tell users they're also installing Maxon Cinema 4D

    Let me know that AE will install Maxon Cinema 4D. I saw it installed, and had no idea why: had to Google the answer.
