  1. every effect, every layer and shape transform to be dupliactable and scalable

    so like the compositing option under each effect where you can duplicate and create mask input as many as needed, why won't there be a transform for each effect and why won't add duplicatable transform to be available.
    Because so many times you just need another transform offset for a particular effect, or particular mask or particular shape and you have to workaround it like adding transform FX or offset effects, or duplicating and cutting out and adding back in the second layer...

  4. Huge preview issue on windows 7

    On windows 7 I had this very time-consuming issue in all updates the past 1,5 years where the preview stops working and the only solution is to restart AE. This happens 5-10 times everyday.

    It seems that the only hint is that the issue comes when switching between apps and back to AE.

    When i press spacebar or any other way to play the comp, the only thing that happens is that the marker moves one frame back on the timeline.

    This issue has fallowed me through all updates but does not show on my laptop with windows 10, so…

  5. a Premiere Layer in After Effects with visible edits

    For every cut in AE you need 2 layers. Very quickly you have a lot of layers. If you precomps the layers, you don't see "outside" the timing of the edits "under the skin". A Premiere layer only for editing would be dramatically reduce the amount of layer & you could see every edit for timing of your animation.

  6. Auto-Save no longer works

    Operating System: macOS High Sierra 10.13.4
    After Effects Version: 15.1.1

    Hello. My auto-save functionality is no longer working. I've tried a number of things:

    • Resetting program preferences
    • Uninstalling/reinstalling After Effects
    • Zapping P-Ram
    • Changing location of auto-save folder in preferences to different drives
    • Changing interval period for auto-saves anywhere from 5 mins to an hour
    • Repairing drive permissions

    None of the above has remedied the issue.

    Is this a known issue? If so, is there a recommended course of action?

    Thanks!

  7. Control of frame increments (especially for image sequences)

    Please add some more in-depth controls for rendering image sequences. These are the options I would love to see in the output module (I know some of them exist already):
    1. start frame (timeline)
    2. end frame (timeline)
    3. increment (timeline)
    4. start frame (output file)
    5. increment (output file)
    6. skip existing frames
    This would give you so much more flexibility than currently. Maya does this very well.

  9. could not open file

    After updating to After Effects 2018 when I try open projects made in the previous version i'm bombarded with multiple errors such as "Could not open the file...", "Unable to open the file.... If the file is opened in another application...". This pops up for each video asset I have in the projects.

    I've tried converting these files to another format and saving to a local HDD rather then the network they were on but still get the same issue. I've also tried back-saving, deleting old preferences files, clearing cache etc.

    AFX 2018 is barely usable at the moment for…

  10. Ability to have bullet pointed text

    Often I’ve needed to create a bullet point list but AE doesn’t support these and it’s a right faff trying to bodge them yourself.

  11. Securing project files

    It would be amazing if there was a simple way to "lock" a project file. This could come in very handy at the end of a project when archiving or even to limit certain functions of a file.

    For instance, once locked, a file can be opened but it can't be exported/rendered unless unlocked. This could be very helpful in the educational realm and for studios once a project has wrapped.

  13. Foreground and Background Layers

    Currently working on GUI-simulations.
    And I think of two features that would come in handy"

    1 Mark layers as 'Comp Duration', to make sure that these layers will adjust to the Comp duration, even when this is changed (great for Background-layers).

    2 Mark layers as 'Always On Top', to prevent from arranging layers all the time: E.g. in a GUI-simulation the Mouse Pointer must be always on top.

  14. AE 15.1 Bug "After Effect warning: Unable to open file..." if give focus to another program then return back to After Effects

    AE 15.1 Bug "After Effect warning: Unable to open file..." if give focus to another program then return back to After Effects. This is on Windows 10. Happens with new and old projects every time focus is changed to another program then back to After Effects. It goes through every file in the project and says it can't open the file, but the project is working fine other than having to click OK to keep closing the warning dialogue.

  16. AE 15.1 Breaks Pro-Res Support

    We just updated two of our Mac Pros to the latest AE 15.1 and it is having problems importing some of our media. These are 1080p pro-res 422 .mov files.

    Error is: Source file has no importable streams. Please check that it is a valid video/audio file. (86 :: 1)

    If we go back one version of AE the files open fine again, so there is something changing with this update that breaks support for our QT Pro-Res footage, as it is the only variable changing on the system. This issue also occurred when we tested it on an older…

  17. April 2018 After Effects loses PNG sequences

    This is a bug report (although this web site makes it infuriatingly unclear if this is where bug reports go).

    I am seeing behavior in the new version in which projects that contain PNG sequences seem to lose those sequences, giving a cant open dialog for every g..d... piece of media. I can cause the error by simply tabbing to another app and then back into AE. Note that projects open fine with all media and if you dismiss these multiple warning dialogs, everything works fine (of course for some projects, that can be hundreds of dialogs).The error seems to…

  19. older (CC2018 and earlier) .aep projectfiles causes crash in CC2019 software

    Projects that I created in AE CC2018 or earlier (and till then worked fine) can be opened in AE CC2019 and will be converted. I can save without issues. But when I close the project (close, opening another project, or quit AE), then After Effects crashes with "Cannot allocate 0,000 MB of memory (29::3)" errors. Importing older projects in a new empty CC2019 AE project won't help. On top of that; opening such converted project in Audition CC2019 with Dynamic link causes Audition to crash. There seems some kind of incompatibilaty in AE with older projects that causes crashes.

    Please add an Auto Ducking feature for audio in After Effects! It’s not ****, but it would be soooo useful.
