  1. Application Scripting Improvement in Settings

    When i am dealing with giving permission to a script to access the network, it would be a relief to know the After Effects administration panel settings could be set to restrict scripts to a comma delimited list of trusted domains.

    Another option would be a list pull down menu that gives the options of always, never, ask every time, ask once per session etc.

  2. Option to Increase Spacing of UI Elements

    The somewhat close and congested spacing of the interface creates a certain sense of anxiety when I go into using after effects. Having the option to increase the spacing between UI elements, especially the layers on the timeline would make for a much more approachable experience. This feature might be implemented similar to the UI scaling options of InDesign, Photoshop, or Illustrtator.

  3. Adobe After Effects for iOS and other mobile platforms.

    New mobile devices are becoming more powerful than computers in 2015-2016, the increasing amount of tablets and mobile devices being sold for work/productivity purposes provides a new market for Adobe services like Premiere Pro and After Effects. I know applications like premiere rush exist currently but I (and I'm sure many other tablet users) would like more control over the videos I make and I know my mobile device is more than capable of handling an application like this.

    Apple Pencil and other stylus' like it will provide the same level of control and precision that a mouse has, and…

  4. Toggle switch for absolute values of parented parameters

    I'd really like a way to toggle the absolute and relative positions of a parameter of a parented layer. Currently only the relative values for Position, scale, & rotation are visible in the timeline. If i need to copy/paste any of these parameters, i need to unparent the layer first. linking an expression to the parameters of a parented layer causes a lot of issues and requires either adding extra code in the expression to get the absolute values or parent the linked layer to the parent of the layer that is being link to. It's kind of a pain…

  5. After Effects 2020 EXR support

    Multilayer EXR - they are faster, though closer to x3 x4 times faster not 12 ;)

    Single layer EXR - they are actually 30% slower than in 2019 version, what's up with that??? (Just imported a sequence and pressed space)

    Timecode finally works with EXR - THANK YOU.

    Create ProEXR layer comps - now I know this has been moved to import options for EXR, but please DO NOT remove this menu item. It's good to be able to do this on command when we need to. Right now if I don't do this during import, there is no way…

  6. Interface problems with multimonitor setup

    I'm using a two monitor setup with the timeline (among others) on the right screen and the composition window (among others) on the left screen. Since the 17.0 update I now have to activate the window before I can edit something whenever I switch from the timeline to the composition screen: with a layer selected in the timeline (right screen), when I move my cursor to the left screen to click and move the layer around in the composition window, it will not work. I first have to release and click again before I can manipulate. Same happens when I…

  7. Sequences

    When importing, it'd be nice if AE automatically turns off the sequence checkbox if there's less that a certain number of items as defined in a preference. For example, I never render sequences less than probably 50 frames, but I often number certain elements numbering less than 50 sequentially.

  8. Display properties already displayed on duplicated layer

    If we show some properties of a layer in timeline it's because we need to work on.
    It's really boring to have to display same properties for each duplicated layer.

  13. Change drag and drop functionality to not assume image sequences

    If I drag and drop a folder into AE it always assumes it's going to be an image sequence - but I almost never use image sequences - this forces me to hold ALT every single time I drag and drop a folder into AE. That's extremely annoying, I don't want to have to hold ALT every time I import something. I'd rather hold ALT only when importing an image sequences OR have to import image sequences through File>Import.

    If I try to import a folder with multiple folders full of videos I get this error:
    "Can't generate a sequence.…

  14. Mocha isn't launching.

    Mocha won't launch, if I click on on the mocha button adding it to a layer.
    If I ALT-TAB I can see a mocha window, but it is blank and I can't select it

  15. Issues with dual monitor

    When using a second monitor with the workspace setup as shown in attached screenshot, if I'm going from the left screen to the right and want to draw a mask or select an item I have to click the window first and then start drawing my mask/shape etc. In the last version of AE, this wasn't an issue.

    I'm running the latest version of AE on macOS on the 2019 iMac 5K.

  17. Image sequence frame rate prompt right on import, please.

    One of the most basic attributes of an image sequence is the frame rate, and sometime we import various fps - so it would be very helpful if this was prompted on importing image sequences...

    The default is 30fps but I (and I'm sure many more) use both 24fps and 30 or 60 frequently.
    I know this can be changed via interpret footage but it would save time to have the framerate prompt right away along with the alpha interpretation dialog box. Example mockup attached.
    Thanks

  18. Beeing able to search an effect by the english name although After Effects is running in a different language

  19. Button (or Search preset) that shows properties already in Essential Graphics

    While combing through the AE16.1 'Cloak-o-nut' AEP looking for magical wisdom, I wished for a list of properties already active in Essential Graphics. We need a button to show where those properties are coming from in the layers, or at least a preset in the comp Search menu. If there's already a way to do this, I haven't seen it.

  20. [BUG] Annoying post render notification due to auto save at render time turned on

    After rendering I get an annoying notification that "Can not run a script while a modal dialog is waiting for response." Everything renders just fine, but I hate having to click out of that render error box all the time. I couldn't get the error to go away until I turned of auto save before render in preferences.
