  1. audio caching problem

    When opening an existing AE project and swapping an mp3 file for a new mp3 file, I have to clear all of the cache in AE and in Media Encoder, otherwise it will render with the old mp3 file.

  2. After Effects crashes when importing a photoshop composition when you have an AEGP file in the plug ins folder.

    An AEGP file is necessary to have in the AE plug ins folder to use State Sets with 3DS Max. Unfortunately, having the AEGP folder makes After Effects crash when importing a Photoshop file as a composition.

  3. interpret timecode bug

    Timecode interpretation in AE 22.3.0 is broken. When importing footage into AE with embedded timecode, the footage viewer shows runtime rather than the embedded timecode. The interpret footage panel shows the correct embedded start timecode, but will only show runtime timecode in the viewer.

  4. Paste layers in original order, regardless of order selected while copying.

    Sometimes I need to select 10-15 layers from one composition to another, and these layers aren't necessarily all right next to one another, but still need to be pasted in the same order they appear in the source composition.

    After effects pastes layers in the order selected, and there's no way to change this behavior. This means if I select a bunch of layers that are in no particular order, to then paste them in the order they appear in the source comp, I need to:
    1. Select all the layers I want to copy and paste
    2. Move them…

  5. Collect files does not include Compositions thate are referenced by expressions

    Collect files for qeued / Selected Comps does not include any Comps referenced by expressions.
    Should be a simple fix.
    Please include.
    Workaround is to always have a copy of comps being referenced, but very few people realise this!

  6. Extended Viewer as an option to be enabled for 2D rather than only 3D

    The new extended viewer is a great addition to the program, nice being able to see outside of the viewer frame! It would be amazing if this was an option for a 2D workflow, there's definite benefits for being able to have vision of what's outside the frame

    A workaround for those who like this as well, you can create a simple 3D layer and hide it. It will allow you to still use the draft 3D mode to have the extended view enabled for your 2D layers. Not sure what impact it would have on performance though having 3D…

  7. Please make AE-created MOGRT files compatible with Premiere RUSH

    It could be so great if the MOGRT files could be interpreted by the Rush App ! Desktop then Mobile app can have access to the templates 😍

  8. Paste raster images directly into After Effects from clipboard.

    Paste images from clipboard directly into a new layer in AE, which would automatically save an image file in some specified directory and create the link. I constantly get references from clients, screenshots, colors, style frames, plates for vfx, etc. that I need to pull in to AE quickly, and it's annoying to have to save a file from PS, then do an import, navigate to the file, etc..

  10. Add Responsive Design - Space to After Effects

    Just like how "responsive design - time" works, and its attributes are transferrable to Premiere Pro inside the MOGRT files, it would be great to have responsive design options for space.

    This way, the Auto Reframe in Premiere Pro would be able to interpret essential graphics templates in size and position to accomodate different aspect rations.

    Currently, essential graphics templates need to be resized and repositioned manually.

    For text, as opposed to graphics, enabling automatic line braking would be essential for this function to work so I'd suggest adding a switch to enable that so that Premiere Pro can break…

  11. Fix broken Prores import in AE 2022

    Hello,

    I have a strange issue since I updated to Macos Monterey (12.1) and the latest version of Adobe CC 2022. I use a Macbook Pro 14.

    When I import Prores files (tested with 444 and 444XQ), they show a strange color cast, shift towards green-cyan. They also show artifacts, banding,... When I apply the same LUT to a DNXHR file (444 12bit), the image is clean. I have the same result in Premiere.

    When I import both Prores and DNXHR files in Resolve and apply the same LUT, both are clean.

    There's seems to be an issue with Prores…

  12. Unify all Color Picker and Gradient palettes

    There are so many different color pickers and gradient palettes across After Effects, and most are rooted in early design that needs to be upgraded. The color picker native to After Effects is not bad, but some native effects, like Colorama, do not use it. The Gradient palettes are a bigger problem. The Ramp Effect, Layer Styles, Colorama, and Shape Fill Gradients all use different interfaces to create gradients. There needs to be a single, powerful, gradient palette that is available to the entire system. It should ofer all major gradient styles, allow unlimited color points along the gradient, be…

  13. Add to AME Queue skipping audio, adding ###

    I found that, when a Comp is added to the AME Queue via the Ae Render Queue, while in Ae an image sequence output module was selected (by Default), and then in AME a different codec is chosen, e.g. H.264, the filenames still have the #### frame number, and lack Audio - these settings are copied from Ae in some way.

  14. The Navigation sucks from the latest Update

    The latest Update for 3d navigation sucks, it's too bad. I really like the previous Navigation cuz it was precise and far better than this update for me.

  15. After Effects 2022 & C4D r.25

    One of the uses of C4D Lite is it's ability to import vector files so AE users can create 3D extruded logos and other icons. This along with the ability to create extruded text was one of the main interactions that was covered when C4D LIte was first bundled with AE.
    The latest C4D release r.25, changed it's vector import workflow and they failed to add this new workflow to LIte.
    This removes the ability of Lite to import any vector file at all.
    The work around is to use the previous version of C4D, but this won't work forever.

  16. Default Output folder and Output Module per Project

    Most of the time, I am working on multiple projects per day, switching several time. Each time I have to set the Output Folder and the Output Module for each.
    Why not store those in the Project Settings? (accessible from the Render Queue for user convenience :-)

  17. With the option to have a multi app subscription, add After effects with premiere pro, it just makes sense.

    Every program has a mutli program subscription, some make sense, light room with Photoshop, how about making it so after effects pairs with premiere pro like it should. Or have the subscription page a mix and match. Noone should have to buy two subscriptions just to put after effects with premiere pro. And I know there IS an all-in-one subscription that puts everything together. But having only two programs that SHOULD be together makes more sense

  18. AE 22.1.1 still does not export to AME on Mac

    It's clear this was a problem for many on both Mac and Windows after updating to 22.0.1, but I still cannot export to AME. AME opens, but nothing appears in the queue. I am running the latest OS and have restarted all programs/my laptop, etc.

    I understand there are a couple workarounds, but as mentioned by others, this is a significant impediment to work flow.

  19. ambient occlusion

    Hello,

    In the NVIDIA Control Panel (not "GE Force Experience"), PLEASE enable Ambient Occlusion. Right now, no matter what I do (even turning it on "universally" first), this is a locked option, and does not permit one to include Ray Traced AO in AE.

    I'm not sure why this is turned off, but I use it for Ray Tracing with Element 3D, Maxon Red Giant Software, and Stardust.

    Without the Ray Traced AO, it looks like junk. This used to be available without any issue, b/c I have previously used Ray Raced AO with these plugins.

    Thank you.

  20. AE Keeps re-analyzing 3D tracker!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytZLM41sAQo

    Everytime I re-click the clip after it has solved it keeps doing it all over again. How do I stop it from doing this? With this short clip it's ok but when having 5K footage it's not.
