  1. Better fullscreen RAM preview options

    I always have to move my cursor to the corner of the screen when doing full screen previews. It should just disappear.

    I use Shift-Numpad 0 to make fullscreen previews. In addition to making the cursor disappear, it would be great to also have an option for scaling the viewer to "Fit" so it's truly full screen. After starting the preview in fullscreen mode, you can then press Shift-/ and that scales to fit. However it would be ideal to set up the preview so one single key command does all these things to create the ideal full screen preview.

  2. Round point for angles paths like in Illustrator

    We often face the need to round the corners of paths for animation or shape, but AE don't have the appropriate function. But this function that has been implemented in Illustrator for a long time. That function is round point.

    How we make it today: Copied paths from AE to Illustrator and used the round point for angles, then copied the path back to after effects, if we don't like it, we do it again.
    But why such a long road to this, if it is easy to implement at the software development level.

    Let's draw the developers attention to…

  4. Add a "Used" column to the project window

    Add a column to the project window to show if an item is used or not in a comp.

    This would be useful when cleaning up projects manually. You could sort by used/unused files and easily delete unnecessary files. It should also check to see if source files are only used in an expression.

  5. Apply Stroke to Layer if Stroke Swatch is Clicked On

    You have a shape layer. You click on the stroke swatch at the top of the UI. Turns out you don't have a stroke to color. Bummer.

    Wouldn't it be nice if clicking on the stroke swatch checked to see if the layer had a stroke applied, and if not, applied it for you? That would be great UX.

  6. Expression Pickwipe at every stop watch

    AE should have a expression pickwipe everywhere in the interface where there is a Stop Watch (timeline, effect control Panel, etc.)
    we should be able to pickwipe quickly from everywhere to everything.

  9. Group and color code effects in Effect Control panel

    It would be helpful to be able to group and color code effects in Effect Controls panel. I often end up with 10 or more effects in the comp control layer and it becomes tedious and difficult visually to find the one I'm after (see attached screenshot). It would be incredibly convenient to be able to create groups like is possible in shape layers, and the ability to color code like we can with layers would also be helpful. It's possible to code and rename effects into groups when making a preset (like in attached screenshot), but this is impractical…

  10. BUG when using Windows 10 clipboard

    When pasting a value from Windows 10 clipboard history (Windows key + v), the value is pasted two times in a row.

    For example, 1234 from clipboard gets pasted as 12341234.

  12. Layer Styles Blend modes not working correctly

    When choosing Inner Shadow or Drop Shadow Layer Style, the screen Blending Mode is not working as it should. Screen acts like Darken or Multiply. Color Dodge etc is also not working as it should.

    Viceversa, all darken Blend Modes do not work with Inner Glow. Multiply acts like Screen here.

    I don't think this is intended behaviour. Although Shadows are usually meant to darken the underlying colors, when I choose Screen it should be Screen. If I want Multiply it should be Multiply.

    There are presets available that use Inner Shadow with Screen and it is a pity that…

  15. SERIOUS BUG REPORT: Missing Plug-ins Continues in 17.1.4!!!

    I posted after upgrading to 17.1.3 that every time I opened Ae, I got a list of missing plug-ins (see attached). The help guy kind of fixed it by sticking a plug-ins folder on my Desktop (which is not an elegant solution.)
    I updated to 17.1.4 earlier expecting the issue to be solved but it's still happening and is now ignoring the work around as well (so back to square 1). The 'missing' plug-ins are actually there, in the correct address string, but Ae isn't recognising them for some reason.
    I see from the community, I am not the only…

  16. Create Finder Folder during Save, with Shortcut

    MacOs 10.14.5, AE 17.5.0

    During the Save As - process, i can't
    create a new Folder with the associated
    shortcut: CMD +SHIFT + N

    I have to hit the CREATE NEW FOLDER Button.
    It's slowing down a shortcutbased Workflow extremely.

    In AE CC2019 it worked as expected.

  17. Add Master Properties connections as a viewing option to the Composition Flowchart

    Composition Flowchart isn't used much by most but I think a KILLER addition to it would be the ability to see Master Properties connections in a nodal view.

    I'd be thrilled to see all the places my MP's are piped into and what the flow is. It would really help when opening up someone else's file to get a quick understanding to how Master Properties are being used!

  20. Timing expression control for templates and user experience from AE to Premiere Pro

    I've been working with templates a lot recently. So far the experience in After Effects is not bad at all. Going in Premiere however is not so fun. I would suggest an expression control for timecode units so the user can decided what time they want the animation to appear. The other method of this is sliders and too many expressions to deal with like start time, duration, end time. The units are whole numbers and seconds so the user might have to do a bit of math or they won't be able to get to those crucial half seconds.…
