  1. Improve Eyedropper in 32bit Linear Workspace

    Picking colors using the eyedropper is problematic when in a 32 bit Project. If you pick a color from a non 32bit source then the color is always different. The color is converted through the linear process but when you pick you are using the eyedropper by eye and that it shouldn't go through that process. The same goes for working with shape fill and outline colors.

  2. 기능 개선 요청

    프로젝트의 오디오 하드웨어 설정이 자꾸 멈춘다.
    즉, 미리보기 실행시 멈춰버리며, 이를 해결하기 위해 오디오 하드웨어를 매번 다시 설정하고 있다.
    작업중에 가장 많이 사용하는것이 audio hardware 이다.
    이것은 개선된 아이디어의 제안이 아니라, 문제해결을 요청하는 것이다.

  3. Multiple objects in same layer - reusing a layer

    As the number of layers grow and the timeline grows too, it gets difficult to mange the real estate of the timeline. It would be great to reuse a layer for another object in the same layer to save space and ergonomics. For instance even for repeated animations we need to create as many layers. Thereby growing the timeline vertically as well as horizontally. Thus it become unmanageable after it gets pretty big.

  4. Item and AVItem should exist as real classes in ExtendScript

    ExtendScript documentation says that CompItem and FootageItem are subclasses of AVItem (and AVItem, in turn, is a subclass of Item). The problem is neither Item nor AVItem are actually defined in ExtendScript. Running item instanceof AVItem throws an error because AVItem is undefined!

  7. Make a layer ALWAYS span the entire duration of a comp

    It'd be useful to be able to set a layer (e.g. a background solid, or a still image) to ALWAYS last the entire duration of a comp, so if I extend the duration of the comp, the layer will always last the entire duration of the comp. It could be activated by right-clicking the layer and choosing a menu option under the Time category (it'd fit right in there with Freeze on Last Frame).

  8. Puppet Tool needs a feature that gives you the option to create a custom mesh.

    For example, I'm currently animating a image where the eye is blinking. The deform feature for the Puppet tool is perfect for this, but I find that the auto mesh that it creates generates triangles that result in artifacts and are not ideal; the fix for this is just add more points. However I think it would be great to have a feature to draw your own edge loops. Say you can draw a few masks on the image for the the grid/loops, then have the tool generate a mesh based on those guides. Or say just draw one loop…

  14. How can we improve After Effects? By listening and responding to your users!

    At this point we haven't heard from your team in over a year. Not a single idea or suggestion has been acknowledged or marked for consideration in that time. Even requests that have been fulfilled have not been marked complete. Meanwhile on the Premiere uservoice page or pretty much EVERY OTHER MAJOR APP there are constant updates. Go look and compare! The lack of communication at this point is borderline disrespectful, how can you maintain this apathy towards your paying customers?

  15. Add text to shapelayer

    Adding Text to a shapelayer via the little triangle button would be amazing.

    When for example creating a button i need 2 layers. the shapelayer itself for the button and a textlayer. But when having an dropdownItem in the shapelayer, like the PATH or the RECTANGLE and so on, but with TEXT this would be so helpful!!!

  16. Text color is not applied correctly

    I created a block of text using the font Menlo Bold. I am experimenting with using special shape characters, so my text block looks like this:

    ♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎
    ♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎
    ♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎
    ♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎

    I want each row to be a different color. When I select the row of diamonds and apply a color, the first two rows are colored. When I select the third row, the last character in the 4th row is colored. Something has gone horribly wrong.

    If I use regular characters like ABCD, this doesn't happen. If I insert a letter character at the beginning of a line, the coloring…

  19. External links - export

    Please correct collaboration between After Effect and Media Encoder when using external links. I use a plugin that imports data from external files and the texts do not update during the export.

  20. Convert to Audio Key Frames is counter-intuitive and confusing

    I don't understand what adobe did but current Convert audio to key frames is bizarre. When you select an audio layer you have an option to create to keyframes. However this creates a full set of keyframes on a composition level and not layer level, including all audio sources from that composition. Now this is not right, why then there is an option to have keyframes on one layer , but it creates an ampitude including all active audio layers? Its just counterintuitive and confusing. I would understand this behavior if it was a global effect, but its a layer…
