  1. 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…

  2. Smart photoshop import

    When importing new layers from a photoshop file, you should be able to pick and import multiple layers at a time, not just one by one.

  4. 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.

  5. Easily scroll (cycle) through Luts in lumetri color

    We need the ability to scroll, with a shortcut or mouse wheel, through LUTs in lumetri color with having to browse new LUT every time.
    just like you can scroll through blending modes.

  6. Please Maintain Output Settings / Templates when updating

    Every update I have to remake those, when not saved before updating.

  7. Respect Even Odd Fill Rule when Create Shapes From Vector Layer

    Ai gives the lazy user a solution to get the fill toggle for Compound Paths right. Clicking the Even Odd Fill Rule switch in the Attributes panel makes it work directly. But when imported in Ae and choosing to create Shapes from the Ai, the Even Odd Fill Rule is skipped.

  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.

  10. smooth or page scrolling timeline

    I'd love to see a smooth scrolling or even page scrolling timeline like that inside premiere. Whenever the TLI previews past view, it would be great to continue to see the timeline in relation to the indicator.

  11. Transfer parent name of named properties in Essential Graphics

    Properties such as effects can be renamed by the user, it would be helpful if the name given to the effect was transferred to essential graphics. Particularly the expression controls. Currently if I use a slider, for example, and I name the slider effect, when I include it in EG I have to rename it again in the EG window, because it will just be called "Slider".
    It would be good if manually named properties could inherit their parent's name when being included in EG. This could be appended to the start of the name, so if I add an…

  12. Add xml import back into after effect

    Please can you add xml import back into after effects? Importing a whole PP project bloats AE projects with so much unneeded media it’s a total pain. Also removes the ability to quickly import grade from colourist and quickly set up projects and have the team start working.

  14. 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).

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. Import a "Large canvas size" Illustrator file to After Effects

    Hi,

    When you import a "Large canvas size" Illustrator file to After Effects the illustrations are 10x smaller. Please fix this with an option like "Honor scale" in After Effects.

    Why I want these Large canvas size Illustrator file in the first place? I create 2D explainer animations in Illustrator and animate them later in After Effects. Before the Large canvas option I was only able to create max. 15 artboards (the scenes of the animation) from 3840x2160 each in Illustrator. Now I can scale this up to more then 100 artboards, so I only need one Illustrator file in…

  19. 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.
