  1. GPU should be used more especially when using shape in animations.

    GPU should be used more especially when using shape in animations.

    GPU utilization too low while working.I want you to use about 80% of the whole.

    GPUの使用率が低すぎるので70~80%ぐらいは常に使う様に処理を改善して欲しい。現状ではかなり使用率が低すぎる。

  2. Preview is stuck in a loop and is unresponsive

    RAM Preview becomes unresponsive to clicks, spacebar, Num0, ESC, etc. Playback continues on loop and the only way I've found to regain control is to minimize/maximize AE or close the application.

  5. Opt-out of the installation of Cinema 4D R21 when installing After Effects

    Add a checkbox or something to allow users to opt-out of the installation of Cinema 4D R21 when installing After Effects.

    I already have a valid perpetual license for Cinema 4D R19 Studio. R21 is pointless as it only allows me to use a trial license or purchase a license. The application is useless for those who already own a commercial license.

    To make matters worse, I must uninstall it every time there is an update for After Effects. Quite frankly, I consider it bloatware. It useless and it wastes space on my hard drive.

    I understand that there are…

  6. Split this forum into BUG REPORTS & FEATURE REQUEST sections

    Why is this site combining Feature requests AND bugreports together.
    I can't even filter Requests from bugreports.

    At least a filter would be nice to have!

    Thank you

  8. Playback won't stop playing back

    Bug Report:

    When doing a RAM preview, After Effects will cache and play like normal, but won't stop. The interface will hang and AE will continue to play back indefinitely. This issue occurs seemingly randomly several times throughout the day.

    This is occurring on several computers running Windows 10 and AE 17.0.4.

  9. I want Japanese and English expressions to be the same

    I want Japanese and English expressions to be the same

    Internally want to make sure that the effect names and shape layer names do not match in the Japanese and English versions of AE

    When trying to open aep across languages, an expression error appears and it is difficult to use

    An example
    en = sulder control jp = スライダー制御

    日本語と英語のエクスプレッションを内部的に同じ扱いにして欲しい。言語を跨いだワークフローだとエクスプレッションエラーを発生してしまうため。

  10. Please bring all OpenType features to After Effects

    Typography is an important part of many animations. With the great amount of options designers have with OpenType-Fonts every aspect of a font should be accessible in a modern animation software.

    Please add all OpenType-Options as seen in the Photoshop Character Panel to be natively accessible in After Effects.

  11. Multi-core processing

    My company is working on the cutting edge of 6K+ stereoscopic 360 VR. We have gone through great lengths to purchase the most powerful PCs available on the market for the sake of faster performance. Unfortunately we're faced with the bottleneck of your software not utilizing this modern technology. Simple tasks are literally taking days, and at times weeks because of this. At all times, Windows Task Manager is showing After Effects utilizing less than 10% of both CPU and GPU. We have spoken at length with multiple reps from Adobe, Mocha, After Effects and Microsoft to confirm our settings…

  12. Global Color creation in After effects

    The ability create a global color and assign it to different items in your comp so you can make color revisions fast. On creation would automatically generate a chip in the color pallets, it would have a special marker to say it's live in the preview.

  13. Revert the icons to the multi-colored versions!

    This is an Adobe CC wide issue but AE is where I notice it the most.

    Please revert the icons to the multi-colored versions! It makes no sense to make them the same color when the "themes" break down beyond video and photo use. I used the colors to quickly locate the software I needed to open, now I have a taskbar full of purple and have to squint to tell which letters I am clicking on.

    It seems like a very poor design choice that was likely made by the boardroom, not the creative team, and I beg you…

  14. Allow overscroll in the timeline panel

    Currently the timeline panel stops vertically scrolling when the lowest layer reaches the bottom of the panel.

    I'd like to suggest adding an option / preference to allow 'overscroll' in the timeline panel so that the lowest layer can be viewed above the bottom of the panel.

    The primary reason for the request is that it gets a bit fiddly working on the lowest layers, and having the extra working space would make it more comfortable to interact with them.

    In practice this could be very similar to the 'overscroll' option in Photoshop preferences (Preferences > Tools > Overscroll).

    A…

  15. Make Guide layers allow to use "Preserve Transparency"

    Make Guide layers allow to use "Preserve Transparency"

    When using "Keep Transparency", the effect becomes invalid if there is a video or image on the bottom layer. If you use a guide layer, please enable "Keep transparent"

    「透明性を維持する」を使用する場合に一番下のレイヤーにビデオや画像などがあると効果が無効になる。ガイドレイヤーにした場合は「透明性を維持する」を有効にして欲しい

  16. Update the way AE handles alphabetizing in the Project Window

    Currently there is an unexpected behavior with how AE alphabetizes items in the project window. The addition of a character after numbers changes the order in a way that makes organization and renaming a challenge and sometimes a complete pain.
    Example:
    04-
    01
    02
    Above the dash will bring the 04- to the top. I'm told this is because numbers at the end are counted as numerals, but as soon as you add a non-number character after a number that number because a regular character. This seems to mean context plays a part in a character's value.

    I would like…

  17. Preview Playback still is broken

    I have the latest version of AE 2020 (17.0.6) and I still have problems with playback which none were present in 2019. I push spacebar (or from the preview menu itself) to preview, it starts but then it wont´t stop, I have to force quit the program, this only happens with the Windows version, in MacOS it works fine, I just had to move my entire project to MacOS because otherwise I could not work. PLEASE fix this, after many updates of 2020 this bug/issue persists!
    That's what happens when it plays the preview, sometimes it just won´t play no…

  18. After Effects 2020 on Mac does not work at all with Arri Alexa Footage

    After Effects 2020 on Mac does not work with Arri Alexa footage that when imported into Premiere has the AMIRA LUT automatically added. You can see my first exampled here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27MpmJfKHqg and my second example from Arri's example footage here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9aRnCeu7PE The footage drops out, goes blue, and goes upside down becoming completely useless.

    The only way to get the footage to work is to recompress it all and the reconnect, but we are talking a huge amount of ProRES 4444 footage that I really don't want to recompress, especially when it works fine in After Effects 2019.

    I had…

  20. Major Bug - Linear Color Key Effect Breaks Adobe Media Encoder

    Latest version of AE, Media Encoder, Mac Catalina, on an iMac Pro base model.

    If an AE project has a layer with the Linear Color Key effect applied, the project will fail to load in Adobe Media Encoder. If the effect is removed from the layer, then it loads in Media Encoder as expected.

    The same issue occurs if a layer has Video Copilot Optical Flares plugin applied.

    There may be other effects causing this issue, but these are the only two I have definitively identified.
