  1. 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.

  2. Add ability to search and add Adobe Stock directly from After Effects CC

    Add ability to search and add Adobe Stock directly from After Effects CC.
    Why is this ability only an option in Premiere Pro?

  4. 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…

  5. Network Shared Plugins Folder

    Medium sized studios struggle with differences in plugins installed. Artists often encounter missing plugins when opening other people's projects. And keeping track of what plugin is installed where is a hussle.

    Nuke allows linking to network folders (via Python) where every gizmo and plugin is installed. Loaded on application open. Of course licensing is still configured per plugin but it unifies what peple have and even with missing license you can see what it does.

    Please give us such option

  6. BUG DETECTED on Mac Os Catalina

    John Colombo asked me to contact you.
    I'm using MAC OS CATALINA 10.15.7
    The problem I will report on happens only in AE 17.5.1 and 17.6
    previous versions and After Effects BETA have no problem.

    Importing .aep files takes forever to complete.

    When I try to import a .aep file of just 500kb with several layers through the menu> File> Import.
    or use a script with importFile ()
    The AE hangs for almost 2 minutes before releasing use.

    And it shows this on the console:

    <123145438416896> <DBSync> <5> BEEThreadedRenderUpdateQueue :: RenderDeserializeFullProject ZANZIBAR-2: old = 8b8d7a52-36d8-4cec-a075-bcab79a9c5a, new = 8b8d7a52-366a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-7a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-7a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9a-9aa…

  7. BUG: Impossible too add the same "MOGRT/AE-files" twice, with two different CSVs.... will mix up values of both CSV

    I made a template for a diagram in AfterEffects and which uses one exchangeable CSV which is available in two versions - one with 2-values (22,23) and one with 10-values (100,99,98,97,96...) - which i display via 10 text-layers. If a value is not given in the CSV the text-layer gets invisible, so it only dispaly how many values are in the CSV.
    Now when i import the MOGRT to Premiere it works fine, with the first CSV with all 10 values displayed (PP displays 10 values with 100,99,98,97...)
    BUT when i import the same MOGRT-template a secound time, into the…

  8. Synch Settings to Teammembers

    It would be very nice if you could distribute settings, render presets and so on in the team via sync settings.

    One user is the master and everyone else can synchronize the settings from him.

    That would be very helpful in large organizations and teams.

  9. Bug in Team Project using Essential Graphics with nested composition.

    I'm using Team Projects for After Effects and have a face-composition with a nested mouth-composition two levels down in the face-composition.

    From the mouth-comp I've added some Essential Properties to the face-comp. This works.

    When re-opening the Team Project however, I get the following error:
    "After Effects warning: Could not create Essential Graphic parameter because it refers to a non-existent layer."
    The file opens but the master properties referring to the mouth-comp on the face-comp have all disappeared. Needless to say that is a serious problem because all keyframes added to these properties are lost.

    Don't know if this is…

  10. 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.

  11. Keep Text Attributes when copying text from other applications

    Working with kinetic typography, I get files with text set in InDesign or Illustrator. The designers spend a lot of time setting the kerning, tracking, leading and all text attributes so that the text looks great.
    When copying this into After Effects all attributes are missing and the text needs to be set up AGAIN. You could outline all the text, but then it would be a nightmare to animate and process corrections. Please help users save time and avoid work duplication. Thank you!

  12. Add customizable tokens/properties to Render Queue

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to define our own render tokens somehow. We often have very long and complex filenames that string together common elements like "Project Code," "Client Name," "Project Name," "Deliverable Name," "First/Last Initials," "Version Number", "Language"

    It would be helpful to be able to define these somewhere in the AE project, perhaps as metadata, and then allow them to be used as render tokens/properties that can be used in the existing File Name and Location Templates.

    Sure, we can manually enter this information ourselves when we go to render. We could also rename our…

  13. When using projectPath render token, existing files are overwritten without warning

    When using the "projectPath" property (render token) to manually set the filepath in the File Name and Location Template, if a file with the same name already exists, it will be overwritten without any warning when the user clicks Render. This should be fixed to prompt the user with a warning before rendering begins.

  14. 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

  16. Allow markers in AE-created .mogrt files to be seen in Premiere

    .mogrts are a great way to create stylized transitions and such, but the inability to add markers that are viewable within Premiere creates inconvenience when actually putting these into use. Being able to send an AE timeline marker back into Premiere within the mogrt would be hugely helpful!

  17. Files dragged in from library should retain their names

    When I drag I file from one of my libraries into an After Effects project, I would like it to keep the name I have assigned that file. Nearly every file loses its assigned name, and winds up as something like "Artwork 3" when I bring it into After Effects.

  18. Dynamic link imports graphic layer as if native layers.

    Dynamic-link imports Premiere Pro/Illustrator/Photoshop/Etc graphics layers as if native layers.
    This means that after effect changes any effect and transitions to keyframes and native effects and styles, instead of making useless layers that make more work to manually delete and add effect in.
