  1. Layer Aliases

    How great would it be to have the ability to create Aliases (or Instances) of Layers?
    These Layers (with the name Italized) should dynamically reflect the exact RGBA content of their original.

    Would save a lot of copying, expressions etc. And would be a nice hybrid of node based and layer based compositing.

  3. Pickwhipping Keyframes

    What if we could drag the pickwhip to a keyframe and get a reference to it in an expression? For example:

    thisComp.layer(1).transform.rotation.key(1);

  4. AE Bug - Cannot Parse Shape on Clipboard

    Every time I have an Illustrator shape on the clipboard, After Effects displays the "Cannot Parse Shape on Clipboard." I'm not trying to paste anything into AE, but the error comes up every time I attempt to do anything in AE. The only way I've found to avoid this is to go to a text editor and copy some text to the clipboard. Then the error doesn't appear in AE.

  5. Camera Tracker / Show 2d trackers before Solving

    When using Camera Tracker, Ae tries to Solve the track automatically.
    But I would like to kill some 2D tracks before Solving, to get better results when moving objects are in the shot.

  6. sourceRectAtTime parameter to disregard descenders on text layers

    It would be incredibly helpful to be able to disregard descenders (possibly also ascenders) when measuring the height of a text layer with sourceRectAtTime, possibly with a new parameter – something like sourceRectAtTime().textHeight.

    This would be useful, for instance, when creating rectangles to act as text boxes.

  7. Bug: Wiggle() extends outside its amplitude range

    I noticed wiggle() sometimes goes outside the amplitude range.

    For example, wiggle(50, 5) can exceed above 5 and below -5.

    In the comments I attached a screenshot which shows an example case of when this happens.

  8. Keyboard Shortcut for "Go To Keyframe Time"

  10. After Effects not exporting to Media Encoder when the project is located on OneDrive

    I have a whole project (Folders, Subfolders, etc) saved on OneDrive. When I try exporting the After Effects file with Media Encoder it fails to export & I can't even change setting (the error message “could not read from source. Please check the settings and try again.” appears). I´ve never had this problem before.
    I’m guessing it’s the combinations of After Effects and OneDrive. But I’m clueless as of why & how to fix this? Does anyone have an idea?

  11. Access to the data of Undo command via scripting

    Access to the data of Undo command via scripting.

    If developer have access to undo data, we could Undo an action by separate composition or something more precise.
    Many possibilities with that.
    Sometimes you do things in a precomp, change something in an other precomp but you made a midstake in the first precomp but you can't undo just your first change.

  12. Error message with AE 2022

    AE 2022 is unstable and have bugs. It keeps cashing and sometimes just won't opening, I have to force quit and restart.
    I also got this error message when opening a specific project :
    "Internal verification error, sorry! [no current context]".
    I tried to reinstall AE, did not work, then I reinstalled CC desktop and all my app, and I still got this message.
    I was hoping today's update was going to fix that, but no, I still got the error.
    I had to downgrade AE to the previous version and now everything's fine. I miss the good old times…

  13. Adobe Fonts not loading automatically

  17. Renderoutput is dependent if AE is used as a Rendernode or not

    I created Files with a Comp in the Renderqueue in a Watchfolder. Though the Rendered image Sequence is different if i use After Effects as a Render Node or not. If I use it as a Render Node the already saved comp in the Renderqueue renders disabled layers in that comp. If I use AE normally and Render it. The output is correct.

  18. After effects crashing every 2 minutes

    This has never happened before and I've been using after effects for the last 3 years. Basically every time I launch after effects (CC 2018) and use it for whatever reason it'll suddenly crash in the middle. No error messages or anything just stops responding completely and I have to close it via task manager. The longest I could use was about 10 minutes. I've tried everything the internet has suggested (disable gpu, purge cache, delete temp folder, open via task manager, reinstalling, checking event viewer, update drivers) There was nothing about After Effects on event manager so I'm pretty…

  19. Don't publish updates unless they are tested and working!

    Every time I update After Effects and Media Encoder, multiple problems occur. Projects get broken, plugins and scripts need reinstalling, I have to set up my workspace again and in the end I usually have to roll back to an older version because the new one is too broken to use. I waste days of production time with this. Just stop posting updates unless they are 100% solid.

  20. key stroke

    Ignored keystrokes.
    When using After Effects some keystrokes seem to be ignored randomly. When entering a timecode for example, a lot of the times one of the numbers entered is just ignored. It's not a delay, it can be a number in the middle that's ignored. Even if I explicitly type deliberate and slow, making sure I press the keys correctly and firmly after effects randomly ignores a keystroke. Not always, but every other timecode (8 characters) I enter one random characters turns out missing. Also sometimes I have to press a shortcut (u, p, s, r, t, the usual)…
