  1. Cannot wheel scroll layers in timline

    When you click the drop down menu in your After Effects timeline (the Parent & Link category) you can no longer use the wheel on the mouse to scroll up or down.

    Why?

    This error occurs in AE 16.1.1 (Build 4) and Windows 10 17763.503

    Users could always use the wheel mouse to do this, please reinstate this command as it highly speeds up users workflow.

    Thanks for your hard work.

  3. Shy / Solo hides all layers except those selected - advanced shy layers (alt shy)

    The shy button is so useful - but I feel like it's lacking. It would be good to be able to be able to just be able to select a bunch of layers then click a button to solo them. This would be good because you just say grab a bunch of layers - solo them, reclick - select a new group of layers - solo those.

  4. Easier ways to convert to paragraph text

    There should be more ways to convert a text layer to/from point text to paragraph text.

    The only way to convert from point to paragraph text is to:
    1. select the layer
    2. switch to the text tool
    3. then right-click the text layer only in the comp viewer panel.

    It would be nice if it wasn't hidden behind a right-click menu while only within the comp viewer. It'd be great to have a menu command (and thus eligible to create a keyboard shortcut), was available as a right-click option within the timeline panel, and if it wasn't required to…

  6. "Caps Lock" button to disable redraw in Comp window

    I's really like a toggle switch in the Comp window that acts the same way as pressing the Caps Lock Button, so to disable the comp window from redrawing. This would be especially helpful when rendering. It will speed up rendering while not having the entire system needing caps lock activated. I can't tell you how many emails I had to re-write because Caps Lock was on.

  7. I would love to see support for 3D connexion devices

    It would make navigating the camera inside a 3D composition so much easier.

  8. Display source's timecode in timeline

    I really need the ability to see a layer's source timecode at anytime. Currently, I need to enable time remapping to see a layer's source timecode. I'd like the time remapping readout of the source's timecode / frame number to be always available to view without enabling time remapping.

  9. Full project dependencies report

    It would be nice to create a full project report, that would sum up all the assets used, one under the other so we can easily pick out assets that are not in our project folder tree, all used 3rd party plugins,( maybe also the built in ones, just into two seprate report paragraphs) , all the used fonts.
    Basically I want a comprehensive list of everything that I need to move over to a new machine to make sure the project opens and renders properly. And no Collect is not an option.

  10. XD Files in After Effects

    Hello everyone,

    it would be great feature, if Adobe XD files open in AE for animation, and the last update in AE, we were just able to import AI and PSD files, So if you people update the Aftereffects with above feature that will be great for everyone.

    Thanks

  11. Graph Editor - Bounding Box Frame Snap

    As far as I know, in the Graph Editor there is no option to snap to frame while editing the bounding box (moving multiple keys).
    Can you please add it?

    Even with the option: 'Allow Keyframes Between Frames" de-selected, keyframes are moved between frames.

    This kind of frame snapping works in the standard 'Comp view with layers' by default when moving multiple keyframes (with 'alt' key pressed).

    Cheers.

  12. Marker with duration - Buggy moving on zoom

    Just created a duration marker (a marker with in an out points), and when I fully zoomed the timeline, whenever I've tride to click and drag to move the outpoint of the marker, it would jump out of bounds, up to a point that I had to zoom out in order to see where on the timeline the outpoint went.

    It happens only at zoom levels where you start to see the highlighted frame lenght at the timeline.

  13. Confusing new Expression editor

    The line numbers are a great step forward.
    The suggestions pop up tough, is somewhat confusing.
    In case of 2 possibilities, it is not clear which one is selected.

  14. Allow us to log in to Creative Cloud and Sign out other computers once, not with each app

    When I switch computers and 'log out, and sign off of computer X' so I can use CC on computer B..., A: We should only have to do that once, and not each time I open another CC app, i.e. render with M.E..
    and B:... when I do sign in (again), it shouldn't force me to save AE changes and quit the app. just so I can relaunch it. I haven't noticed this with PS and AI, but happens every day with AE, M.E. and I think premier. Even signing in and logging out from the CC control panel app,…

  15. Unable to execute script dialog is no longer accurate

    This dialog box is no longer accurate. The correct path is Preferences > Scripting & Expressions as of 16.1.1

  16. Thumbnail previews in bridge

    this is also for all products. for the thumbnails in Ae and Pr just use where you last left open during a save if nothing in view keep the last thumbnail. that way we have something to go by and if you explain that its using what is in view for the thumbnail that will help for people to sort there projects.

  17. Clear 'Open Recent' list option in menu

    Just a simple addition of 'Clear Recent' in the 'open recent' fly-out. Good for shared computers for privacy.

    See Audition as example.

  19. Expression Editor Keyboard Shortcuts *BUG*

    I'm pretty sure this is a bug. When editing code, I often delete specific parts by selecting words (Shift+option+arrow keys). For some reason in the new expression editor, using option+arrow keys will jump words but adding in shift to select reverts it back to selecting letter by letter for some reason. It looks like this is now used to select multiple lines, but that's kind of an unexpected behavior. Usually, in code editing software, multi-line select is handled by option+drag.

  20. After Effects does not recognize fonts installed per user in Windows 10

    Windows 10 seems to have added an option to only install fonts in the user folder (which I suppose lets people install fonts without Admin privileges). After Effects doesn't seem to see these fonts. It took me like an hour of troubleshooting to move these fonts to the proper Font folder, it would be helpful if AE saw the user fonts.

    %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Fonts is where they are stored.
