  1. Include hardware settings with Workspaces

    I have Workspaces defined for my office desk and for my home office, each with different arrangements of monitors and speakers. It would be wonderful if there was an option to "sync" audio/video hardware settings with your Workspaces, so that AE would know to use my external speakers at work and my built-in laptop speakers at home (as an example).

  3. Save Location after project import

    After importing a project to your current one, after effects overrides the location where the project was saved, with the imported one.

    THIS IS SO ANNOYING AND DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL!

    No matter what they had in mind when programming this – NO, THIS IS JUST WRONG AND MAKES NO SENSE IN ANY CASE!

  5. Replace fonts in project

    Hi, replacing fonts in a whole Premiere Pro project is brillant. Would be cool if it could be transposed to After Effects. Sometimes, I have used a font for a big project and the client want an other one...for example.

  6. Global Color creation in After effects

    The ability create a global color and assign it to different items in your comp so you can make color revisions fast. On creation would automatically generate a chip in the color pallets, it would have a special marker to say it's live in the preview.

  7. AE Adjustment Layer Issue

    When applying an FxFactory Filter using an adjustment layer, if the layer below the adjustment layer has a mask, effect or filter, AE no longer feeds layer data. Please watch the uploaded video for details.

  8. Shape Layer Wiggle

    We should be able to customize the Shape Layer Wiggle Path look and animation with an other layer with black and white value. Like Fractal Noise for example.

  9. Add auto-incrementing number as render token

    It would be helpful to add a token for a number that automatically increments if a file with the existing number already exists. This would be great for versioning renders automatically. For example: [compName]v[##].[fileExtension] would produce compNamev00.mov, and then a subsequent render of the same comp would produce compName_v01.mov

  10. AERender in AE 2019 don't wait for job completion

    Up until 2019, AERender, when executed with the -reuse option, waited for the job to complete before terminating.
    On AERender 2019, AERender, when used with the -reuse option, open (or use the already opened) gui, set the job to work on the gui and terminate immediately.
    This is problematic, because we relay on the -reuse option to complete jobs very quickly, while still checking to know when the job is complete.

    We are asking to return the AERender to behave like in previous versions - that it will terminate after the job is complete, even with the -reuse option.

    thanks

    Thank you for filing this bug. We’re aware of an issue where, on Windows, the aerender process will crash at process start if the -reuse flag is used and the UI of After Effects is running. If the UI of After Effects is not running, the -reuse flag will cause the aerender process to crash after the render job is completed.

    Our apologies for the disruption. We are investigating a fix for this bug for a future release.

  11. Independent superscript control in essential graphics

    Please allow independent superscript control in essential graphics when font features are not available for template user (i.e. font, font size, etc., are preset). I've created templates for my team at work and often have to use the ® symbol with product names. Being able to select it in the text field in Premiere and superscript it would be a big help, and would streamline both the template design and the end user experience.

  13. Import Photoshop File by Groups

    Right now After Effects can only import Photoshop files by entire document or layers. There should be a way to import specific Photoshop groups as a third option. I would find this very useful.

  17. Time counter to count the time I have spent on a project

    I think this feature is useful in many levels; in business it will give insight on each project and the time it took while working, thus estimated deadline, and individuals such as freelancers will be able to determine the time each project requires so they can price their hour cost.

    The timer will pause while the project is open but there are no changes.
    This feature is not only for After Effects it may be implemented in most of adobe products including Premiere, Photoshop and Illustrator.

  19. Dynamic linking to another .aep project file

    I'm part of a team that work on multiple infographic shots simultaneously and we would really like to be able to link to external after effects compositions that could contain components that are being reused on all shots.
    In that way someone could setup and animate dummy components within one .aep file and then the rest of the team can link to those components compositions (as if it where footage) and start on each separate shot.
    All the while the dummy components can be tweaked and finished and that would ripple out to all the other team members shots.

    This…
