  1. Allow altering Time Remapping on Replaced footage in MOGRTs

    I work for an in-house media team and we create a lot of branded MOGRTs for our editors to use, some of which require asset replacement. I cant pin down the intricacies of when Time Remapping works and doesnt work when replacing the asset but I'd love to be able to adjust the Time Remapping of an imported layer confidently when using a MOGRT in Premiere when controlling TR with expressions. I know there is a warning in AE when exporting a MOGRT that Time Remapping isnt supported in replaced layers and I would love for it to be supported.…

  2. BUG: AI vector layer file disappears randomly in After Effects.

    Recently i met a bug - when importing AI layers to AE from Illustrator they (some of them) can just disappear at random moments from my compositions. I see borders of objects but they are just not displayed - invisible. Even purge memory doesnt help. Only restarting PC sometimes helps but not always, so i should convert ai to shape. But it is impossible when ai layer has gradients.

  4. (optional) Automatic renaming of files on import based on file type

    If the setting is activated, upon dragging files into AE a rename files dialogue box would appear, asking whether the user wants to rename the file(s) within AE or keep the original file name. The user has the option to specify the prefix for each file type within the settings for this option.

    For example, I import 5 images and have used "img" as the prefix, then the images will be renamed within AE to:

    img1, img2, img3, img4, img5

  5. Error w/importing Ai file that has multiple artboards

    If I try to import an Illustrator file which has multiple artboards, I often encounter an error message. My workaround fix has been to open up the Ai file, and delete other artboards.

  6. Render Queue - File Name and Location Template bug in 2021 (18.4.1 (Build 4))

    so I have a project:
    F:\filmmaking\Client Name (587)\Film Name\CODE.2.6.2021.aep

    When I use the File Name and Location Template (in AE 2021 only, all other versions work fine)
    [projectFolder]\renders\FINALS[compName]_Proof.[fileExtension]

    It seemingly randomly saves the file(s) in either:
    F:\renders\FINALS* or
    F:\filmmaking\renders\FINALS* or
    F:\filmmaking\Client Name (587)\renders\FINALS*
    never F:\filmmaking\Client Name (587)\Film Name\renders\FINALS* like it is supposed to.

    If after I apply the template, I click on the link, it takes me to the dialogue showing exactly where it is supposed to go. Click render and it renders to the correct path.

    If I don't click the filename first, it renders to a random parent…

  10. Generate a report of clip timecodes used in a comp

    The 'Collect files...' report only lists the files used in a comp. It does not contain the timecodes or frame ranges used. This is necessary for generating reports of, for example: stock footage used in a comp. Or for reporting which sections of the dailies have been used in a comp.

  11. Stop adding new features till the program works at an appropriate speed.

    I'm tracking footage as I write this. the entire file is just a single 4k video with two trackers. my cache is on an ssd, and I run a 1070 and 6700k intel chip. not the best, I know...
    bit it worked fine on 6k anamorphic video in 2016 when I made it. so now I get to say:
    what the hell adobe. how did you mess this up so much, the moment you went subscription?

    it's simple. after effects has become like 3DS max: buggy, cobbled together, filled with half-functional plugins, all with messy code and badly integrated, with…

  12. Open in Essential Graphics from Comp window

    I love that you can right click on a Comp in the project window and "Open this Comp in Essential Graphics" Most of the work we do happens in the Comp window, would be nice to have that option also available from there so you don't have to find your comp in the project window or in the crazy complicated Primary drop down menu in the Essential Graphics window.

  13. AE MOGRT - Add a script callback when changing a parameter

    To improve MOGRT flexibility, it could be nice to have the possibility to run a script when an input parameter changes.
    For exemple when user changes an input media (with media remplacement stuff..) the script could change the duration of a composition from the input media duration...

  14. Add Null inside object ( for example shape

    I have a suggestion for creating a Null inside an object as well as having it in composition. For instance, if I am animating the position of an object and need to move that object around I would need to create a separate null to reposition object. Why not add null functionality inside the shape layer (as an example) so that the layer can have its position moved or rotation adjusted without having to attach it to a null becuase the position or rotation already has keyframes

  15. Arri raw

    When I import ARRI RAW MXFs from Alexa Mini that were shot with a different pixel aspect ratio than square (2:1 Anamorphic in our case) the footage is interpreted with a wrong resolution. Instead of 4448x3096 (which is the native resolution it was shot in) the footage has 4448x1548. I guess that it desqueezes the footage, puts it out in native resolution but only uses the longer side for that transform, meaning I lose resolution. In my case I got that a few hours too late and now have to redo a lot of work. Could you check that out?

  16. MOGRT Destination - Feature Request

    EGP > Export Motion Graphics Template... > Destination > Local Drive > Browse

    Problem:

    AE doesn't save the last used Destination for MOGRT export.
    When saving MOGRT to "Local Drive" and selecting a Destination, it currently defaults to the last "saved" location. This effectively negates saving of custom folders on MOGRT Export, because the last "save" location is overwritten when you save the project file.

    Solution:

    AE Project File "save" locations are often different from MOGRT export destinations, they should not share and overwrite each other's memory of save locations. MOGRT Export should remember the last used MOGRT Export Destination.

  17. XYZ coordinates for vertex points

    In Adobe Illustrator I can pick a vector point and find it's X and Y location on screen therefore making sure that points line up exactly.

    I would like to see this in After Effects.

  18. illustrator import 10% size bug

    After exporting a multiple-art board illustrator file to individual illustrator files, the new files import to after effects at 10% of the correct size.

    It is the exact same issue as described in detail here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/illustrator-files-importing-at-10-size/td-p/11464768

    There would appear to be a problem with exporting from large-sized canvas to individual artboards, which can't be corrected from within illustrator. Currently the only fix would appear to be copying and pasting the contents of the illustrator document to a new file.

  19. [BUG] DNx Codecs No Longer Supported?

    ISSUE: As of v18.4, DNx Codecs no longer work properly in AE (as well as Media Encoder and possibly others). For example, a known good (works in other programs, as well as older versions of AE) DNxHR HQ video with Alpha will appear completely black.

    REPRODUCTION: Import a DNx video file, for example DNxHR HQ with alpha channel into After Effects.

    WORKAROUND: Rolling back to v18.2.1 works as a workaround, but is not viable long-term or with remote teams.

    SYSTEM INFO: This issue has occurred on various Windows-based machines of various capabilities. Some of the editors on my team who…
