  1. 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...

  3. Add back rendering support for H264 codec directly out of AE

    Around 2012 you removed the option for rendering a .mp4 file directly out of AE. Please add it back. The work around is to either render in a different codec and compress that in media encoder, or to launch the render directly from media encoder from AE (which is extremely slow and cumbersome, especially when you have large/complex project files). Not sure why removing functionality seemed like a good idea at the time...?

  4. Keyframe stopwatch on ALL properties

    its 2018, why the discrimination? I believe all properties matter, let us keyframe them how we please. #allpropertiesmatter The new AE even has the property pick whips next to them, but they do nothing.

    I'm really just trying to keyframe the shape of the range selector in text animators.

  5. Keyboard shortcut for adding a Position Keyframe also adds one to the Master Properties of a subcomp

    When I do Shift-Alt-P on Windows, it adds a keyframe for both position AND a position Master Property. Seems more like a bug, as adding a keyframe for both seems like a rarer use case than just adding a position keyframe.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  11. 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…

  13. Extend marker duration backwards

    Currently, you can extend a marker's duration forward in time by holding Alt/Option and dragging. I would like to add the ability to extend marker duration backwards so the in point would automatically become the end point, thus allowing you to extend the in point toward the beginning of the timeline.

  14. Create folder containing selected items in Project panel

    When selecting multiple files in the Project panel and pressing 'Create New Folder' a new folder should be created with all the selected files inside. Instead of then having to manually move all files in.
    Perhaps this could be done by holding down a key and pressing Create a new folder, maybe CMD and click?

  15. Keyframe-able Layer Controls

    I know it probably presents a whole host of problems, but it'd be nice if we could keyframe layer controls. It would also be nice if effects that reference layers could be keyframed so that you can link them to a layer control.

    If you're using multiple layers with the same Set Matte setup, for example, it'd be great if we could change them all with one layer expression control. But since they can't be keyframed they can't have expressions either. This makes the Layer Control much less useful than it could otherwise be.

  17. 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!

  18. 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...

  19. Add support for 3dconnexion

    Adding support for 3dconnexion 3d mice would allow greater flexibility when working in 3d space. It would also make the job a lot easier for some of us.

    Thanks!

  20. 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!
