  1. Rotobezier toggle can't be set from jsx for paths, buggy for masks

    The API docs say both masks and paths have a .rotoBezier boolean that is read/write. I can get it to work for masks (but needs some special treatment), but not for paths. I've posted some example code and a video walkthrough on the forums: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/set-rotobezier-property-via-scripting/m-p/13117674

  2. The space bar should NOT be binded to the hand tool

    The space bar should NOT be binded to the hand tool
    There is aleady 'h' and there is a bug that hasnt been fixed for so many updates. The key will glitch and instead of being a long press to activate the hand tool it is a quick tap, (which is how most people preview their content) and u make us have to fix because u guys wont even look at this problem i swear its like adobe doesnt even look at their own product

  3. Bug Report: line spacing weird behaviour / broken in AE 22.2.1

    The Line Spacing option from the text tool seems to be broken.It feels a bit like some value is added internally: e.g. spacing value "0" no longer results in several lines of text being on the very same baseline, but instead, it gives me something that I would expect from [value line spacing] = [value font size].

    Setting line spacing to "auto" leads to too much spacing, too, especially when using smaller font sizes.

    I first noticed this bug earlier this week, maybe last week. Should be around the time of the latest AE update, so I think this specifically…

  4. Fix contextual menus in AE 2022

    Contextual menus have been around for a decade, but with AE 2022 they have stopped working. It is impossible to work in AE without them, "reveal in project", "reveal in finder". The menus flash up and disappear with no ability to select anything. So, nobody is testing this program? Mac OS Monterey 12.3.1, Intel 2020 iMac, AE 22.3.

  5. M1 Prores hardware acceleration

    Please support the M1 Pro/Max/Ultra prores decoders WITHOUT introducing the greenish colorshift. If this is technically not possible then don’t have the hardware setting on by default. You know it doesn’t work properly (because multiple people have reported it and, I presume, you have tested this functionality so WHY is it on by default? A colorshift is very much unacceptable…

  6. Copy paste videos from Premiere to After effects is broken once again

    I can only verrrrryyy sporadically after a fresh reboot copy/paste videos from my premiere timeline over to after effects.
    This is one of the last key advantages that Premiere has over Resolve, so it should better start working again asap.

    I'm on afx 22.4.1 and Premiere 22.0 and mac os 12.4.

  7. Identify layers by moving curser over monitor panel.

    When re-visiting a composition with MANY layers and elements, I find it takes time to locate the correct layer pertaining to say, a graphic I can see on the monitor display. It would be great to hold down a key, and activate a mode in which a layer would highlight when the curser on the monitor display holds on its associated object.

  8. Separate Audio & Video renderer, so when I adjust audio it doesn't have to rerender everything

    Separate Audio & Video renderer, so when I adjust audio it doesn't have to rerender everything.

    Currently when you move a audio layer, it has to rerender the entire sequence whyyy????
    Make the audio & video separate so now I can move my audio without having to rerender everything. Or add effects and trim without having to rerender.

  11. Blend attribute for multiple shape layers

    Considering Offset Paths already indicates that it is possible to increase or decrease bounds of a keyframe-able path within a shape layer, and that an individual path's points can obviously be keyframed, I would imagine that a Blend attribute could be theoretically possible, interpolating stacked paths—much like the functionality within Illustrator.

    In the context, I imagine it could operate somewhat similarly to a Merge attribute, which also works with constituent paths—the key difference being that of identifying the number of intermediate paths and interpolating the two (or more) by a set number of keyframeable instances.

  12. More robust Round Corners functionality for merged paths within a shape layer

    Round Corners offers a great, fast way to introduce rounding to otherwise sharp vertices—but this functionality does not consider several shapes as a single form when first using Merge Layers in the stacking order. If applying a fill or stroke to merged objects as a single shape is possible, why not rounded corners that considers merged objects as a single shape too?

  13. Glyph support in Essential Graphics

    Currently, AE and Premiere Pro only support 'regular' text in Essential Graphics text values.
    It would be great to incorporate and make it compatible with glyphs, which many Opentype font have.

  15. Fix Render Settings bug when queueing multiple frame ranges

    When adding multiple frame ranges from the same composition to the render queue, the render settings do not retain the correct frame ranges for each item in the queue.

    For example:
    Submit frame range 0-200 and then submit frame range 200-400 from the same composition. Check the render settings for each item in the queue. Notice that the frame range for both items in the queue is now the same. Unique frame ranges are not retained.

  16. numeric parameter

    When increasing or decreasing a numeric parameter
    I slide the mouse to adjust it.
    However, when the pointer reaches the edge of the screen, the increase or decrease stops.

    In Premiere, the pointer disappears and the adjustment can be made indefinitely.
    I wish Aftereffect would do the same.

    数字パラメーターを増減させる時、
    マウスをスライドさせることで調整していますが、
    ポンターが画面の端まで来ると増減が止まってしまいます。

    Premiereの場合はポインターが消えて無限に調整できますが、
    Aftereffectも同じ使用にしてほしいです。

  17. Cannot save AE project: "Could not rename the file" shows temporary file name

    Hi,
    I am using After Effects V22.01 on Windows 10.
    Lately I have not been able to save my project. It works for a while, then suddenly the problem occurs. I am saving to a AVID server disk.
    The error message reads, "After Effects warning: Could not rename the file 'Y:....<nameOfProject>.4888.8984.aep' to '<nameOfProject.aep'. The number are added by After Effects and seems to be some sort of temporary name? I have to save as to get this working.
