  1. Stop adding new features till the program works at an appropriate speed.

    I'm tracking footage as I write this. the entire file is just a single 4k video with two trackers. my cache is on an ssd, and I run a 1070 and 6700k intel chip. not the best, I know...
    bit it worked fine on 6k anamorphic video in 2016 when I made it. so now I get to say:
    what the hell adobe. how did you mess this up so much, the moment you went subscription?

    it's simple. after effects has become like 3DS max: buggy, cobbled together, filled with half-functional plugins, all with messy code and badly integrated, with…

  2. Extended Viewer as an option to be enabled for 2D rather than only 3D

    The new extended viewer is a great addition to the program, nice being able to see outside of the viewer frame! It would be amazing if this was an option for a 2D workflow, there's definite benefits for being able to have vision of what's outside the frame

    A workaround for those who like this as well, you can create a simple 3D layer and hide it. It will allow you to still use the draft 3D mode to have the extended view enabled for your 2D layers. Not sure what impact it would have on performance though having 3D…

  4. Fix broken Prores import in AE 2022

    Hello,

    I have a strange issue since I updated to Macos Monterey (12.1) and the latest version of Adobe CC 2022. I use a Macbook Pro 14.

    When I import Prores files (tested with 444 and 444XQ), they show a strange color cast, shift towards green-cyan. They also show artifacts, banding,... When I apply the same LUT to a DNXHR file (444 12bit), the image is clean. I have the same result in Premiere.

    When I import both Prores and DNXHR files in Resolve and apply the same LUT, both are clean.

    There's seems to be an issue with Prores…

  5. After Effects crashes when importing a photoshop composition when you have an AEGP file in the plug ins folder.

    An AEGP file is necessary to have in the AE plug ins folder to use State Sets with 3DS Max. Unfortunately, having the AEGP folder makes After Effects crash when importing a Photoshop file as a composition.

  6. Improve "inline" styling of text via Expressions

    It would be great to not only be able to use the "getStyleAt()" method, but also implement something like "setStyleAt()" in order to style portions of the text separately.

    It would also help to be able to chain different styles together. Right now, it's impossible to do proper text styling with different style types programmatically. It would be incredibly helpful, especially for Templates / MOGRTs.

  7. Remove Parenthesis () around the "Footage" folder when using Collect Files feature

    These parenthesis are HARMFUL to production servers like the one at the agency I work at, and are generally unnecessary for the auto-generated folder when using the "collect files" feature in After Effects. Just "Footage" would be TOTALLY fine, but the parenthesis cause a lot of problems for machines and teams that can easily get tripped up with special characters. Please remove them from that dependency!!

  8. Paste raster images directly into After Effects from clipboard.

    Paste images from clipboard directly into a new layer in AE, which would automatically save an image file in some specified directory and create the link. I constantly get references from clients, screenshots, colors, style frames, plates for vfx, etc. that I need to pull in to AE quickly, and it's annoying to have to save a file from PS, then do an import, navigate to the file, etc..

  9. Default Output folder and Output Module per Project

    Most of the time, I am working on multiple projects per day, switching several time. Each time I have to set the Output Folder and the Output Module for each.
    Why not store those in the Project Settings? (accessible from the Render Queue for user convenience :-)

  10. Add Keyframe Objects in the Scripting API

    Compositions, Layers and Properties are all objects with attributes and methods, but keyframes are not. In fact keyframes do not really exist as anything. To get a keyframe, you have to use Property methods such as “keyAtTime()”, or know the index of the key you are trying to access.
    Manipulating big amount of keyframes can be very difficult because of this.

    It would be very helpful if Keyframes were objects and had their own attributes. Assigning ID to keyframes can be super useful as well.

  11. Transition generator directly from After Effects to Premiere Pro

    All the time when I want to add my custom transition in premiere I have to create new AAE comp and all the time make the same things. This app need to easy transitions making system where you'll declarate "dummy in" and "dummy end" of clip, and import it into Premiere pro, as transition with all comp solids, adjustment layers, nulls and effects.

    I've tried to do my custom transitions using newest option to replace video components from premiere pro, but it's stupid declarate. There isn't "dummy video" but you have to set video path and replace this path from…

  12. More intelligent pasting of instances of Effects

    If I copy an effect and paste it to a layer which already has an instance of that effect, instead of resulting in two instances of the effect, my values are pasted into the pre-existing instance.

    I get that this can sometimes be a time-saver but I think there are more times when it’s annoying and I think it’s counter-intuitive for newer users.

    The behaviour could be that values are pasted if I selected specific properties within the effect when I clicked Copy. That would follow my intention and other behaviours within AE.

    Or

    The behaviour could be that values…

  13. Render Queue - File Name and Location Template bug in 2021 (18.4.1 (Build 4))

    so I have a project:
    F:\filmmaking\Client Name (587)\Film Name\CODE.2.6.2021.aep

    When I use the File Name and Location Template (in AE 2021 only, all other versions work fine)
    [projectFolder]\renders\FINALS[compName]_Proof.[fileExtension]

    It seemingly randomly saves the file(s) in either:
    F:\renders\FINALS* or
    F:\filmmaking\renders\FINALS* or
    F:\filmmaking\Client Name (587)\renders\FINALS*
    never F:\filmmaking\Client Name (587)\Film Name\renders\FINALS* like it is supposed to.

    If after I apply the template, I click on the link, it takes me to the dialogue showing exactly where it is supposed to go. Click render and it renders to the correct path.

    If I don't click the filename first, it renders to a random parent…

  14. With the option to have a multi app subscription, add After effects with premiere pro, it just makes sense.

    Every program has a mutli program subscription, some make sense, light room with Photoshop, how about making it so after effects pairs with premiere pro like it should. Or have the subscription page a mix and match. Noone should have to buy two subscriptions just to put after effects with premiere pro. And I know there IS an all-in-one subscription that puts everything together. But having only two programs that SHOULD be together makes more sense

  16. Rounded Rectangle Mask Options

    When you create a rounded rectangle mask, under the Mask Path there are no roundness properties/options to change the roundness setting after making the mask. There needs to be a setting/property to change the roundness of the rounded rectangle mask under Mask 1 in the timeline panel.

  17. "Collect Files..." not working at all on 22.4.0

    I'm trying to package my project so I can move the whole thing to a new folder location. In the last version I was using, AE was crashing every time I would try to "Collect Files...". I updated to 22.4.0 hoping it would fix the issue, but now when I try to "Collect Files..." nothing happens at all. Also I have given AE full disk access in my system preferences. (I am running AE on a Apple M1 Mac Book Pro, macOS Monterey 12.3.1)

  20. Unify all Color Picker and Gradient palettes

    There are so many different color pickers and gradient palettes across After Effects, and most are rooted in early design that needs to be upgraded. The color picker native to After Effects is not bad, but some native effects, like Colorama, do not use it. The Gradient palettes are a bigger problem. The Ramp Effect, Layer Styles, Colorama, and Shape Fill Gradients all use different interfaces to create gradients. There needs to be a single, powerful, gradient palette that is available to the entire system. It should ofer all major gradient styles, allow unlimited color points along the gradient, be…
