  2. Adopt DPI scaling feature like that of Photoshop, Illustrator

    I have a 27" 4K monitor (150%) next to a 27" 1080p monitor (100%). Right now, both Photoshop and Illustrator look fantastic no matter what display they're on, their scaling changes appropriately. However, After Effects, Premiere, Bridge, and Audition (the other apps I use) look blurry on the 1080p display. I was hoping that by upgrading from CS6 to CC 2018, these issues would have been resolved, but unfortunately we're only partway there.

  3. Request to change bit-depth nomenclature in the Output Module.

    "Millions of Colors+" is so 90's. It's now 2018 and people understand bit-depths much better. It's time to use more professional terms like "16-bit", "32-bit float" and so on.

  4. Include all Shape Layer contents to Flowchart

    Twirl twirl twirl... Navigating all the components that can potentially live in a single shape layer is excruciating. Add all Shape Layer contents to the flowchart so we can get a bird's eye view of what's what and easily select components from there.

  5. Better organisation in program of essential graphics

    Essential Graphics templates can take a lot of trial and error to get right. Why is it to difficult to delete a graphic when I want to export a new copy? When using essential graphics panel I can't delete templates, and I have no way to save and update a new copy.

  6. Smart Sort By Name

    The Project panel sort by name could be smarter. If you have your comps numbered sequentially and then add a letter to the end (say, a new shot 2B gets added between shots 2 and 3), shot 2B sorts below everything. Attached screen shot helps show what I mean.

  7. Simple change Language in UI

    This may apply to any Adobe app. Language should be able to be changed without having to reinstall. I receive projects in both Spanish and English and its a pain to be reinstalling or having to update every expression found in it.

  10. Feature request: The expression pickwhip should be able to 'auto-untwirl' collapsed groups.

    I'm often blasted by one of those glaring-yellow 'YOU BROKE IT' warnings just because I'd forgotten to untwirl a property group before writing an expression: I'll click-drag the pickwhip to the target property, unclick to untwirl it, terminate my expression with an equals sign in the process, and thus precipitate the end of the world.

    On the other hand, whenever I want to pickwhip a property that's been scrolled offscreen, I only need to momentarily hover the pickwhip over one end of the panel before it 'takes the hint' and auto-scrolls for me.

    It'd be great if the pickwhip could…

  11. Add colors to whole tabs in the Timeline panel

    I would like to be able to assign different colors to tabs in the timeline panel, where you switch between comps. This would be separate from the square label group color icon, and used to easily keep track of for example Export comps, work comps etc.

  13. Keep multiple timeline windows exactly where I left them when I reopen a project

    Make each project remember how I had timelines and windows arranged so it opens EXACTLY as it was when I last used that project. I arrange things differently with some projects and saving a workspace DOES NOT keep my timeline windows arranged in order nor remember that multiple timeline windows were open. I often leave small pre-comps in the default location under the Composition window and open a separate Timeline window for large comps in a second monitor so I can open things up and see all the layers. These setups are NEVER remembered and it gets annoying to re-order…

  14. Save changes to this workspace

    Please change order of the "Reset to Saved Layout", "Save Changes to this workspace" and "Save as new workspace"

    or

    Add an "Are you sure you want to change the workspace? Yes - No"

    I click 4 to 5 times a week the wrong button (save changes) and save my workspace with wrong positions and windows.

    Very very very frustrating.

    Thank you.

  15. Problem with AE CC 2018 and Motionland Big pack of Elements

    I am having a problem with After Effects CC 2018, and I'm wondering if anyone can help?

    I am having trouble using the Motionland Big Pack of Elements - a collection of icons, titles etc for after effects. Some of the elements of the pack work fine, but with some titles and icons I am finding that the composition will not play, and I get the following error message:

    "After Effects error: TDL: outline contains triangles that are too small to be rendered. Check for very thin triangles in original artwork. (88 :: 3)"

  16. The selection tool should be able to work with keyframes and layers seperately.

    The selection tool is capable of doing far too many thing concurrently. On the timeline, it can select text, select layers, move layers, select keyframes, move keyframes, and more.
    For this reason, a selection marquee intended for keyframes can only be drawn if the user begins clicking and dragging from a grey section of the timeline. (But NOT if that is the text area for an expression!) This must be very carefully done, since it will otherwise result in layers being moved accidentally.
    I propose that a preference be added, which, if enabled, would require the user to hold down…

  17. Create a keyboard shortcut for the transparency grid's switch (at the bottom of the composition viewer).

    Unless there's an underlying programming issue, this seems like an easy lay up.

  18. Ability to see outside the camera view in 3d.

    It would be very helpful in 3d scenes if you could toggle on off seeing outside the camera view. Being able to see inside the etire viewport with a rectangular shape only showing what will be rendered.

  19. Crop comp tool

    Working between Photoshop and After Effects, the one thing I find a bit annoying in AE is the resizing of compositions. Especially with imported psd/psb objects. It would be cool to have a crop comp tool similar to the crop tool in Photoshop.

  20. [bug] Workspace changes into undesirable position when relaunching/reloading AE

    Best shown here: https://imgur.com/a/FgmItNi
    The only solution I've found was to double click the custom workspace name on the top right. Still, it relaunches
