  1. Hitting Enter ↵ should close theEdit Marker dialogue

    As someone who creates markers ALL the time in After Effects, it's really annoying when I edit a marker, type in the marker name and hit enter for it to jump down a line rather than close and apply the edit, as expected. I doubt anyone writes marker names with mulitple lines?

    It takes my hands off the keyboard to close the dialogue box and this all adds up to wasted time.

    It's a small fix, for a small issue but it annoys me every day.

  2. BUG. Tangent Handles STILLbeing selected all the way along the handle, so point cannot be moved

    I have been waiting some time now but it does not seem to be being addressed.
    Mask tangents and effect tangents in eg mesh warp occassionally will only select the tangent handle and not the point, meaning the point cannot be moved.
    I do not know if this is a HiRes display issue 5120x2160 but it is basic functionality that needs fixing.
    Latest nvidia studio drivers.
    restarting sometimes fixes it temporarily

  3. Preventing folders upon folders of autosaves

    Sometimes, due to unstable workflows, or whatever reason, After Effects crashes. If you have auto save on, then this isn’t a big deal, but sometimes when I open an auto save, I forget to save it as the original project. This leads to a sub folder in the auto save folder, for auto saves of the auto saves...

    It would be cool if when opening an auto save (maybe after sensing an improper shutdown) After Effects gave a dialogue box that asks if you want to save as the original.

    This would likely prevent nested auto save folders and reduce…

  4. Public BETA Mask and Shape Cursor Indicators: Please add a keyboard shortcut to switch between “Tool creates Shapes/Masks”

    It would be great if users could change the behavior to create shapes or masks with the pen or shape tools selected on the fly with a keyboard shortcut instead of moving the cursor up to the tool bar. Maybe with the ALT/OPT key as a modifier. Thank you!

  6. Auto-rename Selectors for Text Animators

    Text Animators are super powerful but they can become very cumbersome as you start to stack and combine them. Thankfully, there's a small QoL feature that already exists with the Shape Layers that could be borrowed over to our friends the Text Animators.

    Name your Text Animator, and the Range Selector appends that name – Shape Layers do something similar! 😊

  7. Bug: Moving between screens with different scaling

    When click-dragging a property's numerical value (e.g. position or scale), if the mouse cursor crosses onto a screen with a different scaling setting in Windows Display Setttings to the one with AE in it, the value jumps. The bigger the difference in scaling, the bigger the jump.

  8. DE: Wrong UI translation for “tab”

    In the After Effects UI, the German tool tip string for the Mini Flow Chart reads as „Kompositions-Mini-Flussdiagramm (Registerkarte)“.

    The German noun „Registerkarte“ is the right translation for the English term “tab” when it means a tab of a folder or a row of tabs in the UI, not when referring to the tab key. In the latter case the correct translation is „Tabulator“.

    The value of $$$/AE/Timeline/Tooltip/OpenMiniFlowchart in Support Files/Dictionaries/de_DE/after_effects_de_DE.dat needs to be changed accordingly.

    Best regards

  9. When Double Clicking on Mask/Shape layers in the toolbar, hold a modifier key to constrain to a 1:1 ratio

    When double-clicking on a rectangle or oval Path Creator icon in the toolbar, it creates a centered shape to fit the bounds of the composition. I would love the ability to hold a modifier key to create a 1x1 shape that fits the bounds, i.e. a centered square or circle. There's almost no easy way to do this otherwise.

  10. 3d controls

    The new 3d control as of After Effect v.17.5 are way too bulky and obstruct the viewport. Please include a legacy control axis or an option to scale the control axis.
    Most projects have enough clutter without huge child safe 3d axis controls filling the viewport.

    (yes I realize you can toggle the view of the controls on an off, but that isn't very helpful as you are working.)

  11. Support for Media Replacement controls in Dynamically linked mogurt

    The media replacement feature of mogurts is fantastic, but it doesn't work for a lot of effects and plugins that require Dymanic Link to work properly.

  12. Make locked layers accessible for copying

    A locked layer should be prevented from change. But it should be possible to copy it, copy effects, copy parameters, copy keyframes.

  13. Increase Font Size on UI

    The font size after long hours on AE is too small. After spending long days on the program, having bigger font would help.

  14. Store camera data

    To be able to store Camera Settings in a table attached to the caera or a table that can be easily accessed, either showing a small subset of parameters or detailed information on current camera setting. Then we can switch Camera angles and be able to use different shots without worrying about losing all our camera settings or having to remember position data

  15. Bug report: MoGRTs and Libraries

    When you click "Export Motion Graphics Template..." in the AE Essential Graphics panel, the "Libraries" panel opens in your workspace, re-arranging all your panels. This is very annoying for anyone who doesn't use Libraries and breaks workspaces every.single.time.you.export.a.mogrt.

  16. numpad decimal point for property value input

    The numpad comma should not be disabled for property value input.
    This should be a global feature across all applications.
    I mean I can enter 33,2 using numpad but pressing enter the value jumps to 332. What is that? Why? How is that helpful?

  17. Camera GUI display does not reflect expression-driven Point of Interest

    When the "Point of interest" of a camera is driven by an expression.
    Something like:
    thisComp.layer("Null 1").transform.position
    The graphical display of the camera wireframe in the interface does not reflect the value of the expression.
    It seems to be "stuck" at the Point of interests native value.

  19. Very need infinite mouse movement (like in 3D programs)

    When I scale something or work with camera movement, there is not enough space to move the mouse (I often have to stop and repeat the movement many times). This will be a very useful feature – infinite mouse roll and move from another screen edge

  20. Shape layer content properties display out of order when showing all keyframes (shortcut: U)

    When showing all keyframes (shortcut: U), some of the bottom-most shape layer content properties move to the top of all content without being nested under the content hierarchy.
