  1. tsv data not being passed to Media Encoder

    When exporting comps from AE that contain text etc linking to data in a tsv, that data is lost when exporting via Media Encoder, which makes batch exporting comps linking to data not possible.

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    Can you please provide more detail on the problem? We need to know more about when you encounter this problem. For example:
    - What type of file are you selecting when you choose the Edit Original command in After Effects? PSD, AI, MOV, MP4, TIFF, JPEG, etc. Is it only one particular file type, or multiple file types?
    - What application are you expecting to open for this file?
    - What happens when you double-click on the file in Explorer or Finder? Does the expected application open?
    - Is this on Windows or Mac? What version of the OS?
    - Is this only in an existing project? If you import the same file into a new project, does the same problem occur?

  3. Wrong Framerate from Premiere import

    When importing a Premiere Project After Effects does not recognize modified frame interpolation set in Premiere and reverts to original fps setting. Please fix!

  4. Text character formatting added to essential graphics templates

    When creating a text-based template using the essential graphics feature, it is essential that character formatting be available in the final template. Without it, templates are severely limited in their application.

  5. pen tool same as illustrator

    3 improvements that will blow minds:


    1. Make the pen tool work the same as Illustrator.

    2. Fill and Stroke switch button.

    3. Collapse/expand all folders keyboard shortcut like Photoshop.

  6. Create precomp based on layer size

    Right now inside of After Effects, if you want to create a Precomp from an individual layer, the resulting Precomp will take on the size of the comp it was in. However, since the layer was already a layer with a specific size, there is almost no situation in which this result is desirable as default. Rather, it would make much more sense for the resulting precomp to take on the size of the layer it is pre-comping, similar in function to the "Trim to Transparent Pixels" command in Photoshop.

    So the desired functionality would be this: I have a…

  7. Autocut wherever 1. changes in pic AND 2. sound level are below a specific level

    Need to cut a lot tutorial videos and webinars wherever two criterias are fullfilled: Changes in Pic AND in Sound are below a specific level (i.e. the speach is pausing AND there is no silent but important action on screen taking place. Would be perfect to get rid of those parts automatically.

  8. A more convenient way to select a property

    Clicking on the same line of the property should highlight it instead of me having to manually go to select the property's name.

    When I want to create a keyframe using a keyboard shortcut, I have to click on the name of the property. But the "clock" is right next to the property's name, what's the point of using shortcut then?

  9. "Decompose" command to extract layers from precomp

    Create a way to "decompose" precomps in a parent comp while retaining the attributes of the precomp. For example, I have a 1000x500 comp nested in a 500x250 comp. The 1000x500 precomp is scaled to 70% in the parent comp. I'd like to be able to "decompose" the 1000x500 precomp so that all of its layers appear in the 500x250 comp and stay positioned and scaled exactly the same as when it was a precomp.

  10. Snap to monitor size in Windows

    Using AE in Apple OS i am able to have multiple windows on multiple monitors and double clicking the bar at the top of the window snaps it to the monitor size.

    With Windows I can't do that so I have one main windod (the one that has the top menu) that I can click and snap to the size of my monitor, but the other window where I keep my composition or timeline I have to manually re-scale to match the size of my monitor as best as I can, but there's always a thin gap where I can…

  11. Pre-color layers

    Instead of changing a color of a layer asset can we apply colors to assets in the project window? Or preset colors custom so that we can label these layers ahead of time instead of after dragging into a comp??

  12. rework the whole 3d space

    Working in the 3d space of AFX is such a pain! Often I try to avoid it or look for workarounds(someimtes using C4d to set up cameras and lights to than pass it over to AFX just to not have to navigate it in AFX)

    It is not easy to navigate the 3d space as it doesn't use industry standart shortcuts to start with.
    In addition it is so hard to grab these little 3d widget handles. I constantly select another layer when I try to move the one I focus on. If we would have the option to restrict…

  13. visually identify duplicate keyframes

    Many times, if you want a pause of some sort, but then later, you start from that same point to animate to the next. Very common with opacity. Fade out, wait some time, fade in, wait some time, fade out, etc.
    If it's not a loop, you'll have to control that, and it's not all that easy to identify.

    I'd like to have the ability to color identical keyframes. For My workflow, I'd like it to automatically assign a color to same keyframes. I could then select another keyframe, choose a different color for that one, and it would color…

  15. Submitting a bug which continually crashes After Effects

    I have discovered a bug in After Effects. Here you have a few very simple comps nested inside each other - no matter that happens, when I double click on ShieldShoppingBag comp and try to interact with ANYTHING inside the comp, timeline, layers etc, AE crashes without warning. Please look into this and fix!

  18. PhotoJPEG Quicktime Support

    Every studio review we have requires us to submit photoJPEG quicktimes as VFX dailies alongside our Avid and EXRs. Would be nice to have so I dont have to script a solution with ffmpeg.

  19. Paste Text Without Formatting

    The ability to paste text from the clipboard without formatting (size, colour, font). Would help speed up workflow when copying titles etc from other text editors/word processors.

  20. Video Copilot Sure Target doesn't work in recent versions

    Video Copilot's Sure Target doesn't work in recent versions of After Effects. The camera does move appropriately, but its movement is completely ignored by the render. Output looks the same as though the camera never moved.

    Some people have said that closing and re-openening After Effects makes it work again. I think it has something to do with the caching system, though purging the cache while AE is open doesn't fix the issue. Something internally just isn't registering that the camera has moved.

    Maybe this is something that Video Copilot could fix with an update, but whatever is causing this…
