  1. 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.

  2. 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

  6. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

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

  12. Remove 3 hours max video length limit

    I need to import and process an 5,5 hours long video, but AE only handles videos with max length of 3 hours. Please extend the max limit to at least 6 hours.

  17. Libraries search

    I post it here because most of the time I work in AE, but of course this concerns whole CC. Since we work with very large own libraries for logo's and stuff, it would be a great help to have a search engine for all the libraries instead of the 'search Adobe Stock' alone...

  20. I cannot have AE 15.0 installed in parallel with 15.1 (new codec - breaks 200 projects for me) and so I have to leave the platform?!?!

    I cannot have AE 15.0 installed in parallel with 15.1 (new codec - breaks 200 projects for me) and so I have to leave the platform?!?! Adobe must at least give us a door to open our old AE projects intact with a possibility to do a parallel install of a dot release! As it is now I cannot update and that SUCKS BIGTIME!
