  3. Search/filter in Effect Controls

    Please add a search/filter bar to the Effect Controls panel to make finding parameters quicker and easier. Twirling down endless nested categories many plugins have is tiresome, slow and unnecessary.

  4. 8 bit warning pop up on all effects

    If I click an effect in the effects control panel where the warning icon appears for '8-bit only' effects, I get the pop up attached, even on full 32bpc effects.

    Seems to be a UI bug

  7. Use graphic's name as it appears in CC Libraries when adding to AfterEffects

    Currently, when adding a PSD graphic from CC Libraries to an Aftereffects project, the name of the PSD's top layer is used as the Source Name. Instead, use the name as it appears as in CC Libraries.

  8. Hand tool in Render Queue

    The keyboard shortcut for the hand tool (space, or "h"), no longer works in the render queue window.
    This is a faster way to scroll through the list of renders instead of using the scrollbar.
    Selecting the hand tool icon still works.

  9. restart button for restarting the entire app under file menu

    There exists an Exit option under the file menu. but it would be a huge timesaver to have a Restart option so Adobe apps can Restart by itself appropriately and systematically without having the need to manually do it.

  11. Hello, is it possible to get more space in the Comment Function in Essential Graphics?

    In Essential Graphics in the comment function you can only read one line of text at a time. To explain more complex content it would be good to have a window that grows with the entered text and where you don't have to scroll. Because an end customer hardly understands what is important.

  12. Bug Report - Preview Resolution Changes Raw Images Gamma in "Linear Working Space"

    Since a couple of updates I've had this weirdest glitch.

    On imported RAW images, when the preview resolution is set to anything less than "Full", the layer's gamma suddenly gets waaaaay off.
    This only happens if "Linearize Working Space" is checked in Project Settings.
    I've also reproduced this bug with .dng instead of .RAF, so the RAW image format does not seem to matter.

    Currently using AE 18.1 on windows 10, Camera Raw is up to date and this glitch happens whether GPU acceleration is on or off.
    Unfortunately I can't seem to find on which version thig bug appeared,…

  13. Zoom control whilst in Effect Control Panel

    I'm often tweaking stuff in the Effect Control panel and wanting to look at the changes zoomed in and out, but the keyboard shortcuts for zooming in and out only work when the timeline or comp window is selected. Please make the keyboard shortcuts work whilst the Effect Control Panel is active.
    Thanks

  14. DE: Tweak german category names for BlurAndSharpen so that effects appear in one category

    In the German UI, effects for “Blur and Sharpen” appear in two distinct categories, „Weich- und Scharfzeichnen“ and „Weich- & Scharfzeichnen“, the former containing the “CC”-prefixed effects (Premiere Pro), the latter all the others (Media Core).
    This is neither helpful, nor is it probably intended.

    Fortunately, there's a simple fix:
    The After Effects Dictionary for the German language (Support Files/Dictionaries/de_DE/after_effects_de_DE.dat) needs to be updated so that the values for “$$$/MediaCore/FiltersAndEffects/Category/BlurAndSharpen” and “$$$/PremierePro/AEEffect/Category/BlurAndSharpen” are aligned.

    Best regards

  16. Hardware support must last longer

    Two years ago I purchased a top-of-the-range HP laptop for my Adobe work and today it seems Adobe don't care about supporting it.

    I know RTX has come out in the last two years and I can confirm my workstation that has an RTX Quadro 4000 runs Adobe without issue - But I need that to be busy rendering 3D.

    Meanwhile my Non-RTX laptop cannot run After Effects anymore, despite HP advertising it as "for use with Creative Cloud." It used to work with Adobe, but not any more.

    I know Adobe will say, "Upgrade the laptop" but here in…

  17. BUG: Item tags (colors) reset automatically in AE Team Projects

    Every time my team opens a team project, the color tags we have set for items in our project reset to their default color. Not all tags are reset, but probably 90% of them are.

    This happens no only when sharing new edits but even when one person simply closes and re-opens AE.

  18. Bring the Primary Viewer button back

    Can you please bring the Primary Viewer button back? I realize it's tucked into each viewers' pulldown menu but it's time consuming to have to constantly click through menus when it's so much easier to click a button. Why was the button removed? It's not crowded with icons on the viewer windows. When working with dual monitors and both main/precomps, having the button readily available is a must.

    Please return the button.

    Thank you!

  19. content aware

    Content Aware Fill panel does not show "Create Reference Frame" and "Generate Fill Layer" buttons.

    P.S. The attached screenshot shows the interface in portuguese language.

  20. Render Push Notifications via Mobile Device

    Rendering is a part of the experience we all just sit around waiting for. We want to be able to take a nap or go get some food without worrying my render has failed or that my computer is just sitting there when I have deadlines.

    Introduce a function via Adobe CC perhaps that would allow you to track and notify you about the completion of renders in After Effects, Premiere or Media Encoder.

    Here is a concept video designed to give you some ideas: https://youtu.be/G9kQEchDun0

    Mobile notifications for renders are now in public beta! They’re available in build 18.4×37 or later. You’ll also need the Creative Cloud app on iOS or Android.

    If you haven’t used the public beta before, you can download today’s release in the Creative Cloud desktop app. Look for the “Beta Apps” tab on the left side. The public beta installs right alongside your release builds and projects are compatible so you can go back and forth as needed.

    Looking forward to your feedback! You can share your thoughts in our beta forum here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-beta/render-queue-notifications-now-available-in-18-4x37/m-p/12131167
