  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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.…

  9. 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.

  10. Zoom functionality change

    Zoom - can you please add the same zoom functionality that you have in Illustrator? Where you can click, drag and zoom in/out? That would be ideal. Better functionality across programs.

  11. New project template - save new project

    I use a new project template and one way to improve it would be that when you open the template AE would ask you to save your new project. Because the project is unattached so to speak, no autosave folder is created and if AE crashes, everything is lost.

  13. UI Button for Audio Device Changing

    The selection of audio hardware needs to become a UI interface element to simplify the process of changing devices.

    As anyone has experienced not being able to playback the timeline because their Bluetooth earphones have died knows its a slow and very frustrating process to have to go into preferences and then audio hardware and change to default audio device just to be able to run the timeline again.

    Hopefully windows and after effects will eventually be able to handoff to another device more automatically in the future but in the meantime a UI driopdown selection or Shortcut would way…

  14. Why "Replace Footage / With Layered Comp" only works on one footage at a time ?

    In addition there is a bug: impossible to assign a shortcut to this command.

  15. Bug report: Cannot drag and drop files to project window

    Adobe After Effects
    Version 17.5.0 (Build 40)
    OS: Windows 10 Pro, Version 1903


    Bug report:
    When I drag and drop a file into the projects window, there is a bug. It states the following:
    "After Effects error: internal verification failure, sorry! {no current context}"

    It is a minor bug, because it is not too annoying, but still unpractical.

    The solution is to import the file via right-click/import file.

    ~Cheers

  18. BUG(or feature) Scripting with wiggle.

    First example:
    I have the wiggle expresion on the sliders.
    Adding the value on the scale property gives 2 different wiggle values.

    Is this an expected outcome, the wiggle is called for each property even if I have only one slider scripted (therefore what is the purpose of the slider if this is the case)?
    My opinion is that intuitively it should add one value to both x an y.

    Second example(without photo):
    Threshold effect has the slider from 0 to 255 (as integer value or at the first look you may think so). The same as before intuitively you…
