  1. After Effects 2022 & C4D r.25

    One of the uses of C4D Lite is it's ability to import vector files so AE users can create 3D extruded logos and other icons. This along with the ability to create extruded text was one of the main interactions that was covered when C4D LIte was first bundled with AE.
    The latest C4D release r.25, changed it's vector import workflow and they failed to add this new workflow to LIte.
    This removes the ability of Lite to import any vector file at all.
    The work around is to use the previous version of C4D, but this won't work forever.

  2. Batch Proxy Relinking & Improved Proxy Creation

    So it has been a long time since i needed to create proxies for after effects, but today I did and was horrified by the workflow.

    You have to literally do it one-by-one for each file in the project list. Alternatively, AE likes to just create a useless composition, per piece of footage instead to render, and then re-links all of those to the proxy.

    There is no way to batch link them! I decided just to do it in media encoder and do it one by one.

    This could massively be improved by being able to select several pieces…

  3. Default Output folder and Output Module per Project

    Most of the time, I am working on multiple projects per day, switching several time. Each time I have to set the Output Folder and the Output Module for each.
    Why not store those in the Project Settings? (accessible from the Render Queue for user convenience :-)

  4. AE MOGRT - Add a script callback when changing a parameter

    To improve MOGRT flexibility, it could be nice to have the possibility to run a script when an input parameter changes.
    For exemple when user changes an input media (with media remplacement stuff..) the script could change the duration of a composition from the input media duration...

  5. AE 22.1.1 still does not export to AME on Mac

    It's clear this was a problem for many on both Mac and Windows after updating to 22.0.1, but I still cannot export to AME. AME opens, but nothing appears in the queue. I am running the latest OS and have restarted all programs/my laptop, etc.

    I understand there are a couple workarounds, but as mentioned by others, this is a significant impediment to work flow.

  6. ambient occlusion

    Hello,

    In the NVIDIA Control Panel (not "GE Force Experience"), PLEASE enable Ambient Occlusion. Right now, no matter what I do (even turning it on "universally" first), this is a locked option, and does not permit one to include Ray Traced AO in AE.

    I'm not sure why this is turned off, but I use it for Ray Tracing with Element 3D, Maxon Red Giant Software, and Stardust.

    Without the Ray Traced AO, it looks like junk. This used to be available without any issue, b/c I have previously used Ray Raced AO with these plugins.

    Thank you.

  7. Allow altering Time Remapping on Replaced footage in MOGRTs

    I work for an in-house media team and we create a lot of branded MOGRTs for our editors to use, some of which require asset replacement. I cant pin down the intricacies of when Time Remapping works and doesnt work when replacing the asset but I'd love to be able to adjust the Time Remapping of an imported layer confidently when using a MOGRT in Premiere when controlling TR with expressions. I know there is a warning in AE when exporting a MOGRT that Time Remapping isnt supported in replaced layers and I would love for it to be supported.…

  9. (optional) Automatic renaming of files on import based on file type

    If the setting is activated, upon dragging files into AE a rename files dialogue box would appear, asking whether the user wants to rename the file(s) within AE or keep the original file name. The user has the option to specify the prefix for each file type within the settings for this option.

    For example, I import 5 images and have used "img" as the prefix, then the images will be renamed within AE to:

    img1, img2, img3, img4, img5

  10. AE Keeps re-analyzing 3D tracker!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytZLM41sAQo

    Everytime I re-click the clip after it has solved it keeps doing it all over again. How do I stop it from doing this? With this short clip it's ok but when having 5K footage it's not.

  11. Bug in Team Project using Essential Graphics and Footage Replacement

    Footage linked in essential graphics no longer available for swapping when reopening a teams project.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1: Create a teams project
    2: Create a comp 1
    3: import an image
    4: Add image to comp 1
    5: Add image to Essential graphics
    6: Add comp 1 to new comp 2

    At this point the image from comp 1 can still be swapped in comp 2 timeline

    7: close and reopen project

    At this point the image is no longer visible in timeline for swapping in comp 2

    This is in both the latest versions of AE Mac and…

  12. Open Recent / Save as Should Preserve Project Path

    When working on a project, and the client requests amends for a previous project and we open it from File - Open Recent, edit the amends and save, it will save the project to the previous project I was working on and not on the recent one i opened. Please Adobe fix this as this is extremely crucial to working for clients and agencies. When doing fast requests this will save us lot of time and project files being scrambled with others.

  13. Import multiple folders

    When I want to import several folders from a directory I have to either import them one at a time which wastes a lot of time, or import the entire parent directory which may contain dozens of unneeded folders and files. Can we simply be allowed to import multiple folders the same way we can with multiple files?

  14. Audio can't be controlled by essential graphics

    There doesn't seem to be any way to make audio editable in a mogrt, would be great to be able to do things like link audio levels to a checkbox to make it possible to enable/disable through the Essential Properties etc.

    Currently manipulating audio with Essential Properties appears to be impossible

  16. Take Snapshot to Clipboard

    Add Take Snapshot to Clipboard so that the current appearance of the Composition can be pasted to Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Word, PowerPoint, Slack, TextEdit, or any other application that allows one to paste a graphic from the Clipboard.

    This could be implemented with a modifier key like command + click Take Snapshot on Mac and control + click Take Snapshot on Windows.

    While it's easy enough to use Command +3 or Command + 4 on Mac, having Take Snapshot to Clipboard would allow for getting just the visible area of the Composition more quickly, speeding up one's workflow.

  17. ALT+drag copy/duplicate

    I would like to see ALT+Drag to copy/duplicate for layers in the timeline and assets in the project panel. Its a standard function for the rest of the adobe suite and for some reason its missing from AE. There's not even an alternate function, its just missing. I understand holding alt and dragging selected key frames in the timeline does temporal stretch. so I see why it might be harder to implement for key frames without upsetting current functions. But, this seems to be a missing feature that would be widely appreciated for those of us that use the wider…

  18. Dimension > to > After Effects

    Rendre exploitable des projets (ou à minima des objets 3D) créés dans Dimension sur After Effects.
    En effet impossible de réutiliser une création faite dans dimension sous After... c'est très frustrant. Ne serait-il pas possible d'envisager un pont entre ces 2 logiciels ? Un format d'export pour Dimension qui serait accepté par After ? Merci

  19. Remember position/size of Windows File Explorer dialog

    Every command that calls the Windows File Explorer does not save the file explorer window position/size. These commands include Import, Open, Save As, Export as Motion Graphics Template, Export As Adobe Premiere Project, etc.
    It does save and remember states for the current session, but resets upon computer restart. Window position resets to the upper-left corner of monitor and size of ~900x600 pixels.

    Have tried fixing this issue in registry, but no avail. Seems to only happen with Adobe software.

    Would prefer to default to center of screen, and permanently remember one saved state for all system dialogs if repositioned/resized.

  20. MOGRT Destination - Feature Request

    EGP > Export Motion Graphics Template... > Destination > Local Drive > Browse

    Problem:

    AE doesn't save the last used Destination for MOGRT export.
    When saving MOGRT to "Local Drive" and selecting a Destination, it currently defaults to the last "saved" location. This effectively negates saving of custom folders on MOGRT Export, because the last "save" location is overwritten when you save the project file.

    Solution:

    AE Project File "save" locations are often different from MOGRT export destinations, they should not share and overwrite each other's memory of save locations. MOGRT Export should remember the last used MOGRT Export Destination.
