    See attached photoshop file, I took screenshots and pasted them in with a walkthrough of what I''m doing on.

  4. Bug Report: Resizing the composition causes the 3D layer to shift.

    If you resize the composition using the "Crop Comp to Region of Interest" feature in version 17.5.1, there will be a difference in the display between 2D and 3D layers with the same X and Y numbers.
    It didn't happen in versions prior to 17.1.4.

    The following reproduction procedure
    1, Creating a composition
    2, Create a new layer
    3, Resize the composition using "Crop Comp to Region of Interest"
    4, Check the 3D layer.

    Other than "Crop Comp to Region of Interest", the same phenomenon occurs when resizing with "Composition Settings / Advanced / Anchor" selected other than the center. …

  5. Single-color option for Tint effect

    I often just want to add a simple color tint to an object (eg make something a little blue). This seems like a very basic need to me.

    The 'Fill' effect is no good as you can't change the opacity.

    The 'Tint' effect requires two colors, meaning you can't see a preview while you pick a color, as you need to copy and paste your color into two boxes.

    Sure, there are workarounds, like using a solid. But isn't this kind of thing precisely what effects are made for? If we have an adjustment layer containing various effects, why shouldn't…

  6. Pick Whip all parameters of an Effect in one go

    There are a lot of occasions where the same effect is applied to several layers.
    Wouldn't it be great if all parameters of these effect instances could be linked together in one Pick Whip?
    Please add a Pick Whip symbol to the Root / name of the effect that, when used, connects all the effects' settings.

  7. Crashes when EXRs don't match comp size and have any transform settings

    Basically, EXRs must be precomped to apply any sort of transform to then. Otherwise I get a repeatable crash.

  8. Stabilization around a point or shape for roto or tracking

    Hi Adobe !

    It would be great to have an option allowing to stabilize the viewport around a point / shape / mask / layer. This would be a huge help for rotoscoping work, or for manually correcting bad 2D or 3D tracking.

    This option is available in Mocha, but this would be great to have something similar directly in AE ;)

    Thanks, and please excuse me if I made some english mistakes, I'm French and dumb ^^

  9. What the h.. The rotoscoop tool is HUGLY buggy

    The rotoschoping tool is aweful
    It disapears, the freezing doesn't actually freeze the selection and the mask remaps
    Aweful, a waste of time. I will look for an other tool I can't believe I pay for this

  10. Caustics Effect resolution independent and 32 bit

    It would be better if the caustics effect was resolution independent. As it is now it produces different result if you set resolution to half insted of full in the viewport. Which make it more difficult to work with.
    Also it would be nice if it could be updated to work in 16 and 32 bit. (same request for all effects please)

  12. Effects to camera and lights

    I want be able to add effects like Expression Controls to Cameras & Lights. For example to add a checkbox to switch Dof on-off more easily, from the effects window. So you don't need to create an extra nulllayer that holds the controlls.

    THANKS

  13. Make expression controls inside composition accessible to the layer instance outside

    I have a composition of a keyboard with each key to light up on a note. I make the keyboard and several checkbox controls for the highlight. Now I put the keyboard composition as a layer in a composition that has all the note info.

    Why can't I make the checkboxes inside the composition available to the layer so that I can have multiple note arrangements using the same keyboard composition? I can't make this link without hard-coding the composition name into the keyboard composition. So I have to make a duplicate keyboard for each composition I want to use…

  14. Introduce Locked But Editable Compositions

    I do a lot of wire and rig removal work, and am constantly battling moving a spline point and finding the entire composition is being moved. This happens while doing other work, as well.

    My concept would be a "locked but editable" feature, where the layer is locked in position, but can still be worked on.

  16. Essential graphics should have a function to replace an image inside the control comp.

    I'm working on a large ongoing project that requires a lot of title animations with different text and images. Essential Graphics has helped but could be improved vastly if there was some sort of "placeholder" layer inside a composition that could be used to swap or select different images inside of essential graphics.

    Thank you!

  17. 3d Lightning in After Effects.

    The Lightning in After Effects is Fantastic, Curious if in the Future After Effects Could Create a 3d Lightning Function According to the Camera and its Position.

  18. Add Grain in 32bit

    Please move this to the top of priorities.
    Since we're now all moving towards ACES which requires working in 32bit, not having a grain effect that works in 32bit makes most of the compositing work almost impossible to do. It's hard to think of an effect that doesn't require grain matching with the background plate, and now every time we apply the add grain effect all, overbright values get clamped, so we CAN'T use the effect on any new production :/

  20. Folders

    ist not the first request of this kind, but i still miss folders in the comp/timeline window for more comfort. it not always make sense to have something in a pre comp – especially when its animated – and to jump back and forth to adjust keyframes. it would be so great to have it all in one comp and just pack layers into folders and giving them a mask too. the set mask option does not compensate the miss of folders with masks – just think of a photoshop without folders for big composition jobs – unthinkable today :…
