  1. 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.

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

    For example i search for Warp Stablizer but i have to type Verkrümmungsstabilisierung because my AE or Premiere is running in German.

  3. [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.

  5. Move script UI panel items into a Window/subfolder vs having them at the bottom of the menu

    There are so many useful scripts to fill out the usability of After Effects. Problem is if you have a few, the window menu becomes unmanageably long. Please make a submenu (suggest after /Window/Extensions) for those scripts.

  7. Dynamic link in AE 2020 - PP 2020 working as in previous version

    I don't know may be it is just me, but after update using Dynamic link is almost unbearable.

    Before: import AE file to PP and correct AE composition, all changes appear immediately in PP.

    Now:
    1. Import AE file. No changes reflecting, no way to refresh. If you want to see changes of AE file in PP you need to save AE file as new (no deleting help) and import as new AE file OR
    2. You can chose "Replace with AE composition feature" on already imported AE file (sic!) and receive in you file new place holder composition, to…

  9. 3D navigation control scheme from Maya option

    Nuke has a really great option that after effects should have too
    it can set the select the 3D navigation control scheme you want to use from Maya, Houdini, or Lightwave. so peope who are used to those programs can easily move the virtual camera around. The one I care most about is Maya because thats what I am used to but you could have lightwave and Houdini too. Inwould probably make sense to include C4D as well since you have so much integration with that software.

  10. Correct dialog message when we delete a compo

    The dialog message "Delete composition xxxx, used in n compositions ?" appears even if the composition is used n times in only 1 composition.

    (Same problem when we delete footage)

  11. User interface colors

    It would be cool if you could change the colors of the background on after-effects to any color you'd like, not just black/white.

  12. Can't extend expression window

    When there is no other layer in the composition under the one with expression it seems impossible to extend the expression window. As a result, you need to scroll up and down to see your whole expression.

    The mouse pointer turns into this bi-directional tiny arrow to extend the expression window down but it doesn't seem to work as intended when there is no other layer underneath.

    See an example here: https://imgur.com/a/KThi0NS

  15. audio smooth play in timeline

    Timeline not smooth for synching key frame and layers to the audio file.
    When you hold ctrl and scrub the timeline, it's hard to find the right place and ear audio correctly / perfectly.

    The only way I found is to give 100 fps to the comp with sound in it.
    Then it plays OK for scrubbing, but too many frames per sec to manage, so it's not playing well.

  16. color smooth interpolation

    AE should have selection of color gradiant interpolation.
    Smooth, cubic, spline, curves... custom with handle.
    Some choices somehow. Not just Linear.

  17. shape layer control gradiant color in timeline layer

  18. Default the layer name of Master Properties

    Would it be possible to default the name of the Master Properties of the layer name you drag in? I know you can rename it but it's a workflow speed increase to have it the default for i.e. Layer1Color instead of just Color as it is now having me rename it to Layer1Color.

  19. white solid layer showing a still video, no other layer above or below it

    I am getting serious issues with 2 to 3 minute videos not displaying correctly in the timeline. Its like its missing the end. The strangest thing, is that before I start this video I have a white solid to begin with. This takes on a still of a section of the movie after. I can get rid of it and put it back and it does the same. there are no layers above or below where the time line playback line is.

  20. 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.
