  1. Exporting pro res 4444 + alpha bug

    Issue when exporting pro res 4444 with alpha directly from AE. When this file is taken into premiere, there are weird purple artefacts, this can be removed by changing the premultiply settings, but this looses some alpha and introduces black fringing. When the same comp is exported via media encoder, using the same settings, no such issue exists.

    Thank you for reporting this bug. Our team is investigating the cause of this problem.

    This problem occurs when rendering from the After Effects render queue using premultiplied alpha. If you change the alpha mode to straight (in the Output Module Settings dialog, set the Color option to Straight (Unmatted)), the problem does not occur.

  2. Bug: Replaced footage in Project panel doesn't update the name of the footage.

    When you replace old footage with new footage - say a new version of a render - the footage updates but the name of the footage does not. It becomes confusing and requires constantly double-checking the path to make sure it's actually reading the correct footage.

  3. Essential Graphics Media Replacement controls

    The media replacement feature in MOGRTs is a game changer!!!

    I would like to see the ability to set a few media defaults in After Effects so the Premiere user doesn't have to. Specifically, I'd like to be able to set the media to "Scale to Fit" by default in After Effects.

    Also It would be nice if Expression controls kept their parent name when dropped into the Essential graphics widow in After Effects. Currently, I have to name the control in the effects panel and then give it the same name a second time when dropping it into the…

  4. Exclude video formats option on Collect Files

    When running a "Collect Files", it would be nice to have a checkbox that allows you to exclude video formats from the files to be collected.

    Often times running a "Collect Files" function takes longest because of the amount of source video data that needs to be duplicated.

    It would be great to be able to get a lot of that time back, especially when you already have many (or all) of the video files available wherever you're next working on the project you've collected.

  5. Better integration with figma.

  6. When using projectPath render token, existing files are overwritten without warning

    When using the "projectPath" property (render token) to manually set the filepath in the File Name and Location Template, if a file with the same name already exists, it will be overwritten without any warning when the user clicks Render. This should be fixed to prompt the user with a warning before rendering begins.

  7. Bug when using layer search bar

    Hi Adobe,

    After Effects keeps deleting multiple layers when I use the layer search bar to search for 'color' and cmd/ctrl+z won't bring them back so I have to close and reopen the program. Any help would be much appreciated!

  8. Basic Audio Editor with Beat Timer (+VST Support if possible)

    Hello,

    It would make life a lot easier if there was some way that Basic Audio Editing could be brought up to a more modern standard in After Effects. At the moment, the user has to go through lots of drop-down menus to see a basic waveform. It is difficult if I want to add single sounds in Audio or use any effects to create my own sounds.

    It dosen't have to be super advanced but at least something more usable and not just something that freezes up the whole system when you add a delay to an Audio Track.

  10. About develop After Effects (New World Scripting, UXP)

    When will After Effects' ExtendScript New World Scripting be enabled?
    When will UXP be available for development in After Effects?
    If UXP is implemented, will ExtendScript remain as it is now?
    I'm also wondering if the New World Scripting project will continue as is, or if it will be discontinued when UXP arrives, as well as the survival of ExtendScript itself.

  11. Script access to retrieve the layer item that is connected to an "ADBE Layer Source Alternate" property

    When media have been added to essential graphics, there doesn't seem to be any way to retrieve that layer that is being affected by that media replacement property

    Would be great to have access to this!

    Thanks,
    Steve

  12. Hover over keyframe to also show ease velocity influence percent info

    When you hover over a keyframe the popup shows frame number location and amount. Add the velocity influence % in/out please. Also, add this to the Info panel, along with the amount. Thanks!

  13. PLEASE FIX the dreaded "unable to obtain dynamiclink project"

    I am getting an “unable to obtain dynamiclink project” error when I try to reapply Warp Stabilizer to a clip that had to be extended in length.

    As Dynamic Link has caused problems for me in the past, my workflow for the past 3+ years is to copy/paste footage from Premiere Pro into a new After Effects timeline, and render a ProRes file. This has worked flawlessly for me, and no need to mess with Dynamic Link once I had the files in AE.

    Today, I opened a project that contained some previously warp stabilized clips, one of which had…

  14. Colour coded tabs for docked panels

    If you could assign some colour (or even a shade) to docked tabs , then when I quickly glance at my stacked panels I'd more easily jump to the right one. It'd be a real help in panel navigation for smaller screens.

  15. Some expressions not evaluated during headless render

    Is there seriously no place to actually post bug reports ? I can't even join .aep files here...
    Anyway... I have this expression that basically takes the content of a csv file and uses it as a Text Source.
    It works well when rendering with AME and as a png sequence in the renderqueue.
    However, if I start the render via command line (on windows) in order to use multiple threads, my text appears empty.
    This is really unfortunate as command line renders makes it 4-5 times faster than regular render queue within AE (I won't even mention how painfully…

  17. Please bring all OpenType features to After Effects

    Typography is an important part of many animations. With the great amount of options designers have with OpenType-Fonts every aspect of a font should be accessible in a modern animation software.

    Please add all OpenType-Options as seen in the Photoshop Character Panel to be natively accessible in After Effects.

  19. Layers Pinned on top and audio output button

    It could be great if we can pin layers on top, in comps with some lots layers.
    Also you could add a button in the tool pane to change the audio output instead go to preferences.
