  2. Change of "Default-Opacity" of Shape Layers

    I would much appreciate the possibility to change the default opacity of shape layers. I most of the time use shape layers with a 100% opacity and now i have to go deep in the settings to adjust it … it's much more work. Thank you.

  3. shortcut to temporarily move layer parent independently of children

    This would work the same as holding "7" in Cinema4D. Would be a nice and quick way to reposition elements in a rig, without having to scroll through the timeline selecting and deselecting elements.

  4. TEXT cursor BUG / ERROR

    When using the "all caps" feature in the character panel, the cursor in the composition window inserts a double space after the last character.

    The other very annoying bug is when I have the text cursor selector hovering over 3 text layers in a composition (two or more text layers are HIDDEN, only the TOP one remains visible) the text selector ALWAYS selects the HIDDEN text layer, even though a) they are BEHIND, AND b) HIDDEN.

    I'm so done with Adobe's monoply honestly.

  5. (scripting) Property values for built-in plugins use inconsistent formats

    When scripting, property values of built-in plugins, such as Polar Coordinates, Transform, and Glow, use inconsistent formats for percentage values. The attached image shows 3 properties all set to their equivalent of 50%, but using 0-1, 0-100, and 0-255, formats.

  6. BUG: Changing the name of a CSV-file or replacing it won´t change the name in "try{} catch(err){} functions, causes problems with MOGRT

    Bug: when i use a CSV-file for expressions and than i change the name or replace it, it changes the name in the most expressions in AE, BUT if the name of the CSV is used in a expressions with "try{}" and catch{} it doesn´t change it... Or is this a feature? Maybe you want this to happen, but this will cause a lot of ERRORs for MOGRTS, when you exchange a CSV

  7. Writing in RTL and LTR in the same sentence with it messing up

    when writing rtl text and ltr(for example hebrew and english) the text messes up, instead of keeping the writing flow.
    in the example I wrote first 'משהו ב-' then 'English' and the 'מתבלגן'.
    The first thing should be in the most right, then 'English' to the left, then 'מתבלגן' to the most left.

  8. Please add the ability to change fonts globally.

    When dealing with clients who want to change the font of an entire project, that could mean hundreds of font changes in many comps. Please add the ability to globally change the font as well as the font size.

    It would be amazing if this could be added as a expression control. That way i could have a font controller and say, all Title fonts should be this and this size. All subtitle fonts should be this font and this size, etc.

  9. Improved Pen Tool

    The Pen tool is an essential part of my workflow and workflow of other motion designers, the current pen tool is chaotic and hard to use compared to the pen tool on illustrator and photoshop. the pen tool and other shape tools don't even come close.

    to better improve a lot of our workflow.
    please work on improving the pen tool

    thank you

  10. Bug report - AE 2020 saving render location

    OS-X - In the render queue, if you select "output to", you get the usual file-saving window. However, shift-command-N doesn't make a new folder, just gives an error beep. You have to click the "new folder" button. Done this like ten times today. Please return the new-folder shortcut.

  11. CTRL+ALT+A no longer selects all visible properties

    Pressing this combination used to select all visible properties. now it just causes random windows to open and close. Appears to be a bug.

  13. Fonts disappearing when used

    When I use a font in my composition, save the file and close it, when I reopen it the font has reverted back to standard and the font I chose is missing from the character menu, even though it's still listed as active in TypeKit. I can't get them back even if I deactivate and reactivate in TypeKit, and I have to update all the fonts manually every time. Please patch this, it's really poor performance.

  14. make older version available to download

    Please make older versions available to download that will work with dynamic link. I'm using premiere pro 2018 because it's much more stable than 2019 or 2020. Can't find AE 2018. Was told it's "end of life" and not available anymore. Surely you can make it available somewhere for users who may still need to use that version.

  16. Individual layer (not source) batch proxy rendering

    This is a kind of combination of background rendering and auto proxy linking.

    Imagine being able to batch render full quality proxies with alpha channels for every single layer in the comp. Not for sources like the current proxy setup - specifically for layers in comps including all effects, masks etc. I foresee using TIFF or PSD sequences. This process could be done automatically in the background when ever AE is running but not active, or when AE is running but the mouse and keyboard aren't active. Or on a schedule (overnight daily for example) or triggered manually.

    Doing it…

  18. Balance Ragged Lines paragraph composition algorithm from InDesign

    When creating paragraph text that wraps, the Every-line text composition engine will still allow orphans. InDesign has a "Balance Ragged Lines" checkbox that allows for much better blocks of text.

  19. Collapse transformations 3D is imprecise and unreliable.

    I frequently work with projects that have 3d comps within 3d comps where I use Collapse Transformations to have everything within one 3D space, and at a certain point (not a ridiculous amount of layers in my opinion, current project is maybe 9 comps with 40 layers each, a couple of which are further 3d comps), the draw order and visibility of layers will be totally off and pop in and out from frame to frame. I don't have any 2D or adjustment layers in the stack that can cause this, and also no effects. It feels very buggy, imprecise…

  20. Disabling Time Remapping should remove expressions applied to the property

    If you have an expression applied to Time Remapping (eg. loopOut), and you disable Time Remapping, you can get an expression error which is unresolvable since the property no longer exists. If we're removing the property itself, it makes more sense to a user to also remove any expressions.
