  1. More intelligent pasting of instances of Effects

    If I copy an effect and paste it to a layer which already has an instance of that effect, instead of resulting in two instances of the effect, my values are pasted into the pre-existing instance.

    I get that this can sometimes be a time-saver but I think there are more times when it’s annoying and I think it’s counter-intuitive for newer users.

    The behaviour could be that values are pasted if I selected specific properties within the effect when I clicked Copy. That would follow my intention and other behaviours within AE.

    Or

    The behaviour could be that values…

  2. After Effects to Audition Dynamic Link

    After Effects still not being able to import MultiTrack Sessions from Audition via Dynamic Link is a bizarre oversight. These two apps should have been united a long time ago.

  3. Faster Dynamic Link with Character Animator

  5. Essential Graphics : custom font style (italic or regular or bold) within a paragraph

    Hello all,

    I'm working on a project between After Effects & Premiere Pro. I want to create multiples text animation coming from the left & the right side. The animation is working well and my text is formatted well as well. BUT for this purpose, I will need to have the possibilty to edit the text. For this, i'm drag n dropping the source text for the text layer into my Essential Graphics panel, it's working well, I can even add properties such as Enable Custom Font Selection, Enable Font Size Adjustement & Enable Faux Styles. The thing is that…

  7. With the option to have a multi app subscription, add After effects with premiere pro, it just makes sense.

    Every program has a mutli program subscription, some make sense, light room with Photoshop, how about making it so after effects pairs with premiere pro like it should. Or have the subscription page a mix and match. Noone should have to buy two subscriptions just to put after effects with premiere pro. And I know there IS an all-in-one subscription that puts everything together. But having only two programs that SHOULD be together makes more sense

  8. Add Vertically and Horizontally Scale to the list of Available text styling attributes

    Vertically and Horizontally Scale is one of the functions from the Character panel that is missing from the list of accessible attributes through text.sourceText.style expression.
    It would be great to have access to them. Thank you

  9. Multiple selections and groups from selections in Essential Graphics (Mogrt)

    MOGRT projects with multiple controllers, It takes too much time to select and group dozens of controllers one by one. It can be possible to make multiple selections, and groups from selections would be a time saver. Also, creating groups and adding properties to groups via ExtendScript can open the door for more powerful tools. Thank you.

  12. Unify all Color Picker and Gradient palettes

    There are so many different color pickers and gradient palettes across After Effects, and most are rooted in early design that needs to be upgraded. The color picker native to After Effects is not bad, but some native effects, like Colorama, do not use it. The Gradient palettes are a bigger problem. The Ramp Effect, Layer Styles, Colorama, and Shape Fill Gradients all use different interfaces to create gradients. There needs to be a single, powerful, gradient palette that is available to the entire system. It should ofer all major gradient styles, allow unlimited color points along the gradient, be…

  13. aerender does not report progress

    Somewhere between v. 20 and 22 aerender has stopped reporting progress on most renders, ignoring the -v "ERRORSANDPROGRESS" flag.
    It could be related to the use of output modules with interlacing. Sometimes it does report, but I haven’t found a pattern.
    I've tried to debug the commmandLineRenderer.jsx file and can confirm that it seems to understand the argument and sets curitem.logType = LogType.ERRORSANDPERFRAME_INFO; correctly.
    However both logging to console or file omits the usual pr. frame lines.
    This is a critical feature for us in terms of reporting render progress to users.
    I've tested…

  14. 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.

  15. Allow markers in AE-created .mogrt files to be seen in Premiere

    .mogrts are a great way to create stylized transitions and such, but the inability to add markers that are viewable within Premiere creates inconvenience when actually putting these into use. Being able to send an AE timeline marker back into Premiere within the mogrt would be hugely helpful!

  16. Add customizable tokens/properties to Render Queue

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to define our own render tokens somehow. We often have very long and complex filenames that string together common elements like "Project Code," "Client Name," "Project Name," "Deliverable Name," "First/Last Initials," "Version Number", "Language"

    It would be helpful to be able to define these somewhere in the AE project, perhaps as metadata, and then allow them to be used as render tokens/properties that can be used in the existing File Name and Location Templates.

    Sure, we can manually enter this information ourselves when we go to render. We could also rename our…

  17. audio caching problem

    When opening an existing AE project and swapping an mp3 file for a new mp3 file, I have to clear all of the cache in AE and in Media Encoder, otherwise it will render with the old mp3 file.

  18. interpret timecode bug

    Timecode interpretation in AE 22.3.0 is broken. When importing footage into AE with embedded timecode, the footage viewer shows runtime rather than the embedded timecode. The interpret footage panel shows the correct embedded start timecode, but will only show runtime timecode in the viewer.

    In AE 2022, dragging any footage in the project window onto the composition button is completely broken. It no longer creates a composition or does anything at all.

  20. Paste layers in original order, regardless of order selected while copying.

    Sometimes I need to select 10-15 layers from one composition to another, and these layers aren't necessarily all right next to one another, but still need to be pasted in the same order they appear in the source composition.

    After effects pastes layers in the order selected, and there's no way to change this behavior. This means if I select a bunch of layers that are in no particular order, to then paste them in the order they appear in the source comp, I need to:
    1. Select all the layers I want to copy and paste
    2. Move them…
