  1. camera tracker

    Camera Tracker - turn of/on automatic solve
    create a way to turn on/of the resolve camera. when deleting multiple points in time, it takes to long because of the automatic solve update.
    if its possible to select all the points, delete them, and then solve camera at will, it will be great. Thanks

  2. Time Stretch using expressions

    I'm looking for a way to edit the Layer Time Stretch value using expressions.
    It's easy to get the value, but couldn't find a way to edit it.

  3. Time delay in Shape layer Repeater Properties

    As rotation, postion and opacity... time (in frame) should be a variable that we should be able to work with.

    Should also be affected by the Offset

  4. Please Include Blend Modes as supported properties within Essential Graphics

    I was surprised to find that there is no way to include blend modes in your essential graphics both when building in AE and building in PR. The only property is opacity which does not tick all the boxes blend modes can. I even tried workarounds to find channel effects with blend modes as options and could not find one. I think this would be a simple addition that would have a large positive impact.

  5. Trimming a layer (rather than time stretching) by holding opt/alt with "Responsive Design — Time" enabled appears to be broken

    I am using the "Responsive Design - Time" functionality for the first time in After Effects and unless I'm misunderstanding the functionality, trimming, rather than time stretching, appears to be broken right now.

    I have a composition that contains a video clip that is replaceable via the essential graphics panel. The composition has a protected intro and outro. In the nested composition, I need to be able to extend the composition length via trimming, rather than stretching, in order to preserve the speed of the replaceable video clip contained within it.

    According to the help page for the responsive design…

  6. animation preset is not working

    hey it's not taken me 20 mins from clicking report a bug to dive thorugh a dozen pages where I've not been able to just report the bug, so marvel at my herculean effort to not FBOMB my way through this 'feedback'

    the text animation presets don't seem to be working in latest AE. I'm on mac osx Big Sur. I'm trying to apply the fade up characters preset and it's giving me some error about the null at line 1 isn't an object or something....

  7. Expose Paragraph Text Box Width/Height for Expressions

    It's currently impossible within expressions to set the width or height of a Paragraph Text box.

    This would be a massively helpful feature for text-based templates and animations.

  8. Speed graph - animating unlinked scale X and Y improvements (toggle X and Y priority)

    It is common to animate the scale of an object along one axis (imagine a bar graph animating upward). Of course you do this by unlinking the X and Y scale proportions and increase the Y scale over time. And if you want the animation to be more dynamic you will use the graph editor. This is easily done with the Value graph. However, trying to do this with the Speed graph is very difficult. This is because the X influence is overtop the Y influence - and when you graph the handles of the keyframe in the Speed graph…

  9. puppet tool breaking

    Puppet tool breaking my layer imported from illustrator and when I change expansion It gives me the "cached preview" error. I close and reopen the project and the entirety of the puppet tool is greyed out and not functioning. I pay way too much money a month for such a simple yet absolutely infruriating problem to exist.

  10. swf into After effect losses motion from movie Clip Symbol

    Pirana opens the mouth as it swins left to right.
    Swf generated with LATEST (oct2021) ANIMATE, works fine if you douuble click it.

    If you import that sfw into AFTER EFFECTS. The mouth DOES NOT MOVE anymore.. but the pirana does swin left to right.

    WHY?

    if the swf is already generated and it works this does not make sense BUT IT HAPPENS.

    FYI: mouth or jaw movement is made on a movie clip made into a symbol, placed on the main timeline where the swim motion is tweened....

  11. Separate Dimensions for Camera Point of Interest and Scale

    I really don't know why this feature is not in After Effects after all these years, but it would be so helpful to be able to separate dimensions for Camera Point of Interest and Scale. It is sometimes really hard to animate the camera when you can only separate the position dimensions but not the Point of Interest.

  12. make it usable

    I am doing a course on Adobe After Effects and I'm following the instructor exactly... somehow since the release of the course Adobe has found a way to break their program I guess. I am importing a .ai file and somehow the composition is allowing one 1 frame instances of the items. I cannot, as the instructor does, simply drag the layer's objects to have a longer duration. So I am not able to animate the things. After Effects, you have one job right now, which is to be able to take the images and make them have durations longer…

    Is there any way to parent individual keyframes?

    Imagine 2 keyframes, the first being the start position and the second the end position. Is it possible to link them to two different sliders?

  20. Create Single Path Text option when 'Creating Paths from Text'

    Clients OFTEN ask for 'writing on' text with all kinds of fonts. Unless it's monoline, you have to draw the paths by hand to get a path in the center of the text. To have AE average the positions of two lines and create a 'centered' line in the middle of each character instead of creating outlines would save many an animator hours at a time.
