When corner pinning extremely tight objects, it can get quite confusing with everything having a white outline. Can you change the actual corner pin shape to a disimilar color to ease eyestrain and improve workflow when tweaking?1 vote
I suggest changing the behavior of how the render queue item duplicates on a failed render.
Currently, when you stop a render, and it duplicates the job in the render queue, the starting point is defined as the frame it was quit on which is pretty much never the case when user stopped.
I believe a better behavior would be:
if user stopped = duplicate render job and keep in / out points
if render fail = continue from last successful frame9 votes

Have UI adjustment options across all apps for those who have disabilities, such as vision impairment. It is sad that a company that is customer oriented like Adobe would still not have this as an option. Please vote for this feature to help designers who have a vision impairment disability.4 votes
Why is After Effects not supporting 10bit display through a Quadro card. Photoshop does, Premiere does. The only way I found to make this work is through the Decklink Mini Monitor 4k card but that has it's own issues.
Please support 10bit displays in After Effects :/3 votes
Duplicate a layer and its source with a single click. i wish their was an option - just right klick on a layer. and then choose "Duplicate layer and is source" - and then you get a new layer in the timeline and a new source in the project.(5 votes
It would be great to have a selection based on colors or colors and text, but only text lets me always search specific colors. i guess it would be much easier for many people to see the colors directly. I work a lot in big comps with a lot layers and comps, so i have to select a lot. Thanks for listening.1 vote
Could you please also give us the option to autosave (freeze) roto-brush work?
Just lost another 2 hours of rotoscoping because autosave (and as a matter of fact saving the project manually) will only save the project but not the roto brush data. Is there actually any reason to decouple the roto brush data from the rest? If you don't freeze it you'll lose it with pretty much any operation. Even moving footage inside a sequence forward by 1 frame and then hit undo will destroy all roto data if not frozen.
Just what is the reasoning behind this?1 vote

Thank you for filing this bug report.
We need more information before we can investigate this problem. In simple tests on macOS 10.13.6, I do not reproduce the issue as described.
Can you give us more detail about when and how the problem occurs? A screen recording of the problem may be helpful. The larger picture is that we need to know what state After Effects is in when you encounter this problem.
This may seem stupid, but I have quite a few 3rd party scripts now, too many to have open and docked at the same time.
Because they are listed underneath everything else in the 'Window' dropdown, it's slow and annoying having to scroll down. I think it would be cool to have a seperate dropdown near the top, much like extensions has. An added bonus would be to limit it to around 14 per row, so it stacks sideways. See attached mockup..
Basically I am too lazy to scroll.
If holding a modifier key to zoom in the Comp window were an option, using the Apple Magic Mouse in After Effects would not be such a maddening experience. Also, you could use the same modifier key+mouse scrolling to zoom in and out in the Timeline window. Maybe holding Z while scrolling? Since Z switches to the zoom tool, that would make more sense than having it just default to zooming in and out of the comp window. I want to keep the scrolling feature of the mouse for menus, so disabling scrolling in the mouse preferences is not an option.

AE 2019 v16.0 Composition and Footage window viewers freeze and not able to view live preview.
Timeline caches and runs fine and I can hear audio, but the viewer is frozen and doesn't update. I've tried troubleshooting various things such as purging memory, closing and reopening project, uninstall/reinstall the program.2 votes
I just really want a separate Expression panel, like the effects panel, where I can write expressions, and see what I'm writing without having to resize the text box on the timeline every time.
Don't really care about coloured text or any of that other functionality. Just a simple text box.14 votes

If I am creating stacks of shape/solid/or adjustment layers on top of each other - it would be great to be able to select the first layer (the foundation) and then when I click - create new shape layer - the new shape layer stacks perfectly on top of the original foundation layer - the current workflow requires - that I create a new shape layer that is then the duration of the entire composition - and then I have to trim it to fit the foundation layer - also - one thing I find very strange - is when I click alt [ to trim the layer to the first frame it lines up with the foundation layer first frame - but when I go to the last frame alt ] - it ALWAYS - trims one frame extra - which I then have to manually drag into place (or I click alt ] one frame before the last frame} - it seems so strange and counterintuitive visually (I understand that its thinking in terms of frames- but at the end of the day we're all looking at bars of color which we are constantly moving, trimming, lining up etc. (like an editing program) -

I could not open the dropdown to select the text separation with Text Exploder 2.0.002 from Mamoworld. I tried it with different AE projects and only restarting AE helped to make it work again. Please see attached screen capture.

If I connect with my laptop to an external screen and start working in after effects I cannot detach the screen without all my windows are moving to nirvana and there is absolutely no chance to get them back and rearrange them since all required controls are somewhere out of my screen. To fix this I have to kill all my personal menu settings. That bug exists since 2008!!! So please!4 votes
