  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. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. [BUG] Gamma shift with AME rendering

    Again. Dang.

    2) - Render via AME to "Mobile Device 1080p HD" preset
    3) - Gamma shift in the result

  6. Import illustrator Artboards as compositions or sequences

    As per title.
    Now to import a multi artboart illustrator file into AE you need to save out every artboard as a separate file. Importing multiple artboards as compositions should be standard. I mean it can be done from XD, why not from Illustrator?

  7. 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

  8. Add customizable tokens/properties to Render Queue

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to define our own render tokens somehow. We often have very long and complex filenames that string together common elements like "Project Code," "Client Name," "Project Name," "Deliverable Name," "First/Last Initials," "Version Number", "Language"

    It would be helpful to be able to define these somewhere in the AE project, perhaps as metadata, and then allow them to be used as render tokens/properties that can be used in the existing File Name and Location Templates.

    Sure, we can manually enter this information ourselves when we go to render. We could also rename our…

  9. Dragging footage onto the composition button in the project window is completely broken

    In AE 2022, dragging any footage in the project window onto the composition button is completely broken. It no longer creates a composition or does anything at all.

  10. Inherit project structure when exporting to folders

    It would be a great feature if when I export I can keep the folder structure from my project. So if I have an Export-folder I my project and within that I have multiple folders for Lower Thirds, Intros, Backgrounds and so on with comps in them. When I export through Media encoder it would then place the files in a corresponding structure with folders on the hard drive.

  11. [BUG] DNx Codecs No Longer Supported?

    ISSUE: As of v18.4, DNx Codecs no longer work properly in AE (as well as Media Encoder and possibly others). For example, a known good (works in other programs, as well as older versions of AE) DNxHR HQ video with Alpha will appear completely black.

    REPRODUCTION: Import a DNx video file, for example DNxHR HQ with alpha channel into After Effects.

    WORKAROUND: Rolling back to v18.2.1 works as a workaround, but is not viable long-term or with remote teams.

    SYSTEM INFO: This issue has occurred on various Windows-based machines of various capabilities. Some of the editors on my team who…

  13. M1 MAX Mac book pro issues selecting drop down menu tabs on layers.

    I've recorded a screen grab of what's happening.

    https://youtu.be/j0c3ePxwz8w

    This is the latest version of AE running on a 12.0.1 16" 32GB MacBook Pro M1 Max. I thought I was crazy, so I used my mouse, then the touchpad, and when I click, nothing appears, then it vanishes before I can select what I want. Kind of a show stopper there.

  14. Open in Essential Graphics from Comp window

    I love that you can right click on a Comp in the project window and "Open this Comp in Essential Graphics" Most of the work we do happens in the Comp window, would be nice to have that option also available from there so you don't have to find your comp in the project window or in the crazy complicated Primary drop down menu in the Essential Graphics window.

  15. Allow markers in AE-created .mogrt files to be seen in Premiere

    .mogrts are a great way to create stylized transitions and such, but the inability to add markers that are viewable within Premiere creates inconvenience when actually putting these into use. Being able to send an AE timeline marker back into Premiere within the mogrt would be hugely helpful!

  18. Generate a report of clip timecodes used in a comp

    The 'Collect files...' report only lists the files used in a comp. It does not contain the timecodes or frame ranges used. This is necessary for generating reports of, for example: stock footage used in a comp. Or for reporting which sections of the dailies have been used in a comp.

  19. Add to AME Queue skipping audio, adding ###

    I found that, when a Comp is added to the AME Queue via the Ae Render Queue, while in Ae an image sequence output module was selected (by Default), and then in AME a different codec is chosen, e.g. H.264, the filenames still have the #### frame number, and lack Audio - these settings are copied from Ae in some way.

  20. The Navigation sucks from the latest Update

    The latest Update for 3d navigation sucks, it's too bad. I really like the previous Navigation cuz it was precise and far better than this update for me.
