  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Snapshot Button - Less Grating Noise

    This issue may seem trivial, but anybody else cringe every time they use the snapshot button? The noise literally hurts my ears. It's too loud and not pleasing at all. I believe this is the only item in the UI that makes a noise - is there any way to get a more pleasing chime, or maybe just a visual cue that a snapshot has been taken?

  5. Interface is extremely laggy and slow.. It's affecting my workflow and career. Please fix this issue already.

    Dear AE team just please put all your attention and effort into fixing this dumb bug and making your clients happy. not asking you to invent fire, it's not rocket science, just make it work better like in previous versions.
    I see I'm not the only one suffering from this problem, it's among customers with high resolution screens. narrowed it down for you. Really frustrated with you.

  7. Comp settings : add a button to trim comp duration to current time

    Hi AE users & makers :)

    just a quick idea to save time in comp edit windows, when you have to modify comp duration, adding a small button to crop to current time. I even made a mockup ! Have a nice day // Paul

  8. Enlarge points in curves effect

    Larger (or user-size-adjustable) points on curves effect curves would be a glorious thing that would make me cheer.

  10. 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.

  11. Value graph bug

    When working with the value graph the graph gets pushed off from the keyframes. Zooming in and out seems to fix this sometimes but not always. It doesn't seem to effect the animation but it's a bit annoying to work with.

    Thanks!

  14. 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.…

  15. Adobe fonts are broken in After Effects

  16. autosave/save in background

    Waiting for up to two minutes and having After Effects locked while saving is quite frustrating. Illustrator, Premiere and Photoshop all enable a user to save while working. I'd really appreciate this being added to AE.

  17. Shape layer properties / reveal shortcuts

    More shortcuts for shape layers in general, but specifically, an easy way collapse or reveal one or all groups to different levels 'reveal/collapse to show all groups but not properties' collapse all properties, but show fill/stroke, 'reveal/collapse all subgroups/paths', etc.

  18. Better relink of missing footages

    We need a better interface when relinking missing footages in the "Replace footage file" popup window.

    At least something like in InDesign where the missing file would be automatically highlighted in the currently displayed folder.

    This would be very easy to develop (I guess) and way more pleasant and efficient, instead of manually searching the matching filename in the folder, which is a plain waste of time.
    My workaround : copy missing filename from Project tab, paste it in the "Replace file" popup window when in the right folder, press Enter (file is then replaced), repeat for next file until…

  19. I'd like the "Close other timelines in panel" to have a mappable shortcut.

    If you have several timelines open you can right click and go "Close other timelines in panel". I'd like to be able to map that on my keyboard.
