  1. 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.

  2. Shape Layer Stacking Order

    Add an option to reverse the stack order of multiple shapes within a single shape layer.

    This would be great for trim paths effects!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Audio Editing Capabilities

    We need to have Better Audio Editing capabilities for After Effects, at the moment there is a Reverb and Delay but its hardly worth mentioning. If there is a way that we could use a Workspace within After Effects that has Audio Editing. As I use After Effects for Design and Animation and Sound Design but Struggle to fiddle around Looping Audio and do not want to leave the program. After effects is already a Powerhouse but if for instance we could put VST Synths or even basic SoundDesign Plugins , it would send it into Overdrive and make an…

  17. The ability to export compositions as new projects

    It would be wonderful to have the option to export a composition in a project as a new project, without having to save as a new copy, reduce, and then collect manually. Perhaps composition-->export as new project, which would handle the collecting and reducing for the selected composition.

  18. Expressions for properties that don't have a stopwatch

    It would be necessary to make accessible to the expressions the properties which do not have a stopwatch.

    for example:
    the Fill & Stroke text layers property.
    What is inconsistent in the interface is that these properties have the icon Property pick whip ! But it doesn't work.
    But on the other hand we can use it in the Essential Graphics panel.

    Another thing about the Fill & Stroke property:
    It's a property that has been forgotten in all the list of properties that we can now access by expressions to manage text styles.

  19. v17.5 Camera with orbit null works differently to v17,4

    As I've showed in my desktop recording. The camera with orbit null works strangely in the v17.5 version. In the old version, if I parent the camera to a null, it will orbit oriented to the null. But in the new version, it somehow orbits orienting to somewhere else, even I chose the orient to POI tool. Also the moving is shifting when I zoom in the camera. It feels not right.

  20. Dynamic Link After Effects projects within After Effects projects

    When transitions between scenes are more complex using Premiere to dynamic link AE comps isn't an option. Being able to dynamic link .aep files within .aep files would allow multiple users to work simultaneously on different precomps while not disturbing or overwriting the master comp.

    When we're up against deadlines we need 2-3 animators working at the same time. It would save a lot of time not to collect a comp work on it, bring it back in and replace the old one or simply waiting for one animator to finish their task before another can open the file and…
