  1. Select Same Fills and Strokes for Shape Layers

    Adobe Illustrator has a very useful feature in that you can perform a Select Same function that targets specific properties. For example, Select Same Stroke Color select all objects that have the same stroke color. Select Same Fill selects all objects with the same fill, etc.

    It would be really useful to have something similar to this inside of After Effects. It is common to have to modify colors as a project progresses, and After Effects doesn't make it very easy to either access or change colors of Shape Layer properties without resorting to 3rd party tools like BQ Shape…

  3. WideGamutRGB/Log3G10

    Colour Space for RED Camera would very useful feature. Very recently I worked on a project which was shot on RED Camera. IPP2 workflow was adopted and I was asked to Output DPX/EXR with Log3G10 Colour Space by the technicolour. Unforunately, this particular colour space & any other colour space for RED camera does not exist in After Effects.

    I spent months for the solutions but no luck. Everyone talks about the input using LUTs but there is nothing for output.

    I am really happy that Arri Alexa and Sony is in place. But RED should be compulsory too since…

  5. duplicate layers below

    it would be nice to have the option to duplicate layers below the source layer. Maybe via a shortcut, like "command + control + D".

    It's handy when using a bunch of "index - 1" expressions

  9. Marker Bin

    Hi,

    it would be great if we could see all Markers in a bin or folder or spreadsheet like interface.

    Imagine you are searching for notes and shots that you marked
    You can easily find those shots in the markers interface.

    Additionally you can remove them in this interface if you need to.
    Or select many of them even if they are inserted in different compositions.

    I hope you find this helpful

    thanxs

    Peter

  10. Skip frames RAM preview to count from start of timeline, not work area, like it use to.

    I always use the work area to preview (not the option where it starts from the timeline). I also often use the option to Skip frames where AE only RAMs only every 2nd, 5th, 10th, or whatever frame, to save time. I also shuffle or extend the work area up and down to preview different areas. Years ago it use to count which skipped frames to preview from the beginning of the timeline, but now it counts from the beginning of the work area!!! So even if I push the area down a second, or a frame, even though the…

  12. Importing single layer .ai file does not retain layer sizes

    When importing an Illustrator file which only has one layer and checking the Composition - Retain Layer Sizes - the footage defaults to artboard/composition size.

    If you add another layer, or a blank layer the Layer Sizes are retained.

  13. Resolve Typekit Conflicts with Installed fonts

    BUG: Installed fonts conflict with typekit fonts

    Issue --
    • Proxima nova family fonts installed (sans Medium)
    • Typekit fonts installed creates conflict where only limited weights are available from the family list. Typekit overwrites installed fonts on list and matching installed/typekit names appear to disappear altogether.

    For us -- many of our clients use Motion for FCPX to edit and Motion does not see typekit fonts at all, so hardcopies must be installed on all edit machines but then in doing so -- AE has conflict with generation of the available typeface list.

    I described the incident in more…

  14. Allow .mogrt files to export with adjustment layers to affect video clips in Premiere.

    I use a lot of the same graphics for multiple "Projects" and wanted to create a template in After Effects for consistency and lessen the workload. But It part of that graphic is to turn part of the video clip black and white I need to use an Adjustment Layer. Allowing Adjustment Layers to port over with .mogrt files would make things much easier for me and I'm guessing others as well.

  15. Bug Report - AE 17.0 - Lumetri Scopes displaying wrongly when Color Management ON

    Footage displaying identically between AE and Premiere so not always have the same scopes between the programs.

    Repro:
    Get just about any file in Rec. 709 0-255
    Import into Premiere
    Import same file into AE
    Open both scopes. Easiest to see in luma waveform mode.

    With color management off, scopes and pictures seem to match. Once you turn color management on in AE (still off in PP), I'm unable to get AE and PP to match at all, ever.

    I've tried teh following Working Spaces:
    sRGB
    Rec 709
    Rec 709 2.4
    Rec 709 16-235

    and also tried all those spaces…

  16. Composition name Dynamic Link

    If I change the name of a a composition in After Effects that I got from Premiere via Dynamic Link, the name will not transfer into Premiere. Instead Premiere still shows the old name which results in confusions on whether its the right composition your editing and more. Also I can imagine that there could be problems reopening the Premiere project so that it will not find the AE comp because of the changed name.

  17. Add "corner limit" feature to strokes on text as you can in Illustrator

    In Illustrator, I can set a corner limit to a stroke on text. This allows me to get nice sharp points in the little crevices on lower case r, p, b, etc. This would be incredibly helpful in After Effects. Because of this limitation, we have not been able to turn these into essential graphics, so instead we continue to work simultaneously between AI, AE, and PR.

    In my attached images is the window from AI that has the corner limit feature, and then a side by side of what comes from AI (top) vs from AE (bottom). Unfortunately for…

  18. Export AE Shapes and masks to C4D Splines

    AE Shapes and masks have some unique options and properties that are difficult to recreate in C4D, and having a way to convert them into C4D splines would be very helpful in my workflow.

  20. Scripting Access to Text Properties of Individual Letters

    If a text has multiple fonts, font sizes, colors, scripts can currently only see those properties for the very first character.

    This means scripts like my TextExploder (https://aescripts.com/textexploder/ ) or Text2Spreadsheet (https://aescripts.com/text2spreadsheet/) cannot preserve the text formatting properly, if the text has multiple styles.

    Instead of providing a single value for the text properties, Ae should provide scripts an array of style ranges. The XD scripting API does this and is a good example of how it can be done.
