  1. Python support - EOL extendscript

    It's time to move off that old 1995 extendscript and get with Python! I know this is a big one, but we could REALLY use python support for AE. Commandline rendering is incredibly limited and python would be a total game changer for plenty of studios out there. And if Adobe had the idea that their users are not advanced for something like that just look at all of the new stuff constantly appearing on aescripts.com. You have plenty of nerdy developers!

    Nuf said.

  2. Keyboard shortcuts are not updated in the Tooltips

    When you update your keyboard shortcuts, the tooltip shortcuts should update with the new key command.

  3. Create New Shape Layer Above Existing Selection

    Add feature that places new Shape Layers above a selected layer. Nulls and Solids already behave in this manner, so it would just be a matter of applying the same behavior to Shape Layers.

  6. Save backup project to creative cloud

    Have a backup project that is automatically saved to the cloud when you save the local project file, like Premiere has.

  8. Prevent comp expression reference errors when importing project with same-name compositions

    Example: I have a project with a "Video" comp. I import a project that contains another "Video" comp, and another comp with expressions referencing the "Video" comp. This reference now goes to the wrong comp.

    Obviously, the expression should reference the "Video" comp in the imported project, but this is not the case (at least not always).

    Solution 1: Go to the closest comp in the project files. You choose the comp that you need to go up the least folders to get to. This means that it'll prioritize the comp if it's in the newly created "<project file>.aep" folder.

  9. Bug Report - AE 15.0.1 - lumetri scopes - RGB Parade - Green Channel is not correct

    There is a bug in After Effects when you open Lumetri Scopes - RGB Parade. The green channel is not displaying correctly. Even with a pure black solid (displays the green channel as slightly lifted) or a pure white solid (displays the green channel as slightly clipped). Confidence in scopes is very important and clearly we cannot trust the Lumetri Scopes' accuracy.

  10. RenderQueue.render interacts poorly with undo.

    I understand that it doesn't make a lot of sense to undo rendering but I maintain a suite of scripts (written by others) which do a lot of complicated project manipulation along with rendering here and there.

    The scripts stopped working in CC2017; app.project.renderQueue.render() wouldn't do anything. No errors, it would just immediately return without running the render. app.onError would catch a couple of lines suggesting a render was started but only for the first item in the RQ.

    During the course of ripping everything apart and putting it back together again I started getting these "undo group mismatch, attempting…

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    We need more detail about the problem you are describing.

    What format and codec are being used by these clips?

    Where is the alpha not visible? Is it in After Effects, or in a different application? If in After Effects, what is the color depth of the project set to? (8-, 16-, or 32-bpc?)

    I suspect that you may be encountering this problem:
    https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911311-after-effects/suggestions/35769118-bug-report-after-effects-cc-2019-can-t-read-alpha

    Please confirm if that is the case.

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    This is a known problem that we are investigating for a future update to After Effects. The problem happens when you migrate preferences from an earlier version of After Effects.

    If you reset the preferences for After Effects (hold Command/Ctrl + Alt/Option + Shift during application startup), this problem will go away.

  13. Bug report: Text layer grouping alignment reverts to 0%

    When duplicating a text layer, the grouping alignment reverts to defaults (0%) on the new layer. A duplicated layer should retain all of the properties of the original.

  14. Bug Report - Layers jump position on their own

    This is not an idea, it's a bug report, I have a bunch of layers staggered in time, they have no animated position, however, when the needle reaches the out point of the following or previous layer in the stack the current layer visibly changes its position. If I solo each layer then they behave as expected.

  15. Fullscreen Mode doesn't work on macOS

    Please for the love of god enable fullscreen mode in the entire Adobe suite. Why is this not a thing in 2018? When I'm using multiple Adobe apps at once, this becomes super frustrating as all of them are stacked on the desktop with other application windows as well.

    PLEASE, implement this.

    Thank you

  16. pointsOnPath/normalOnPath bug

    I'm using the createPath() function to create an arrow based on a driver path (the arrow will follow the driver path). I created a driver path that has two points and no bezier handles. I make the expression and the results are that the end of the arrow next to the first point on driver path won't take the expressions normals that I coded. They are at 0 height above the path. Until I add a bezier handle to the driver path's origin point - it can be any bezier handle, and everything will work as expected. I've included an…

  19. 360 VR output mismatches 3D edit when input clip has non-2:1 aspect ratio

    I'm editing 360 video shot on a Garmin VIRB 360. The footage I'm working with has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and dimensions of 3840x2160. I'm adding some simple 3D shape layers to the scene using the VR Comp Editor's "Add 3D Edit" feature. When I click back to "Open Output/Render" I notice that the object I've added to the panoramic footage does not line up with the output. After struggling with this for a while I tried the same exact same process, but I performed "Add 3D Edit" on footage I had resized to an aspect ratio of 2:1.…

  20. Font size modification doesn't currently scale from Anchor Point

    When I create a new text layer, and center the Anchor Point to the middle of the text box, I assume all effects will take place from that Anchor Point. However, when I adjust the Font Size in the Character panel, it still applies the scaling effect from the bottom of the text box, and not from the Anchor Point. The Anchor Point stays in place as the font is scaled, causing the Anchor Point to no longer be centered in the text box after adjusting the font size.
