  1. ALT+drag copy/duplicate

    I would like to see ALT+Drag to copy/duplicate for layers in the timeline and assets in the project panel. Its a standard function for the rest of the adobe suite and for some reason its missing from AE. There's not even an alternate function, its just missing. I understand holding alt and dragging selected key frames in the timeline does temporal stretch. so I see why it might be harder to implement for key frames without upsetting current functions. But, this seems to be a missing feature that would be widely appreciated for those of us that use the wider…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Magenta Color Shift when exporting ProRes4444 with AE2020 on Windows

    In AE2020 Exporting a clip as ProRes4444 Millions of Colors on Windows results in an Output with a color shift towards Magenta. This can only be resolved by changing the codec to Trillions of colors.

    Also when Using ProRes 4444 XQ with the same color settings the color shift gets an additions Gamma shift problem.

    On AE 2019 this issue was not there. Also on Mac this issue can not be seen.

    We tested it on multiple Windows machines and on all of them the problem appears with AE 2020 v.17.1.4

    Please fix this problem

  7. select multiple renders in the queue and change all of the "Output to:" with one click, same as "output module" works

    What if the sotware let us select multiple renders in the queue and change all of the "Output to:" with one click? This is how "output module" works, maybe its a good idea to aplly the same function to "Output to:".

    I'm having trouble changing one by one when I render my comps again, they create new files with numbers extension. I only wanted to substitute my pre rendered files easier, like before this update.

  8. Can't drag in 3d space

  9. Allow duplicated pre-comp layers to not affect original pre-comp layers

    When duplicating pre-comped layers and adjusting the newly duplicated pre-comps attributes it automatically affects the original pre-comp as well, this for my work is irrelevant and a hassle. I would like to see it either removed or have the option to choose whether to have it affect the original layers attributes or not.

  10. Export transparent animated GIFs from After Effects/AME

    Currently, if I want to export a “sticker” (Animated GIF with transparency) for social media, I animate the GIF in After Effects, export a MOV with alpha, via the AE renderer, bring that MOV into Photoshop and export a GIF with transparency via the (legacy) web export. This is a lengthy, complicated process that creates a heavy and useless, for the end product, MOV file.

    In my opinion there are multiple things wrong with this workflow and could be improved by allowing direct export of transparent GIFs from AE.


    1. The Adobe export/render preference for most formats is via AME
      Issue:…

  11. Add Property to Essential Graphics

    You can right-click to add a property to the Essential Graphics panel. Great! But it always pulls up the last comp that was open for some reason—and you might not even remember which comp it was if you haven't opened the panel for quite a while. I can't see a use case where I'd ever want to add a property from one comp to another comp's Master Properties—especially as it throws an error.

    Rather than going through all of that error checking and forcing me to first right-click to open the comp in the EG panel, when I use Add…

  12. BUG REPORT 17.5 - Dynamic Link Issues

    I’ve posted before about earlier iterations of V17, since it was released. I and others have found there are serious performance issues in the Dynamic Link. Client templates created in Ae several versions ago and used continuously since, often do not appear or update in PPr when they are modified. Often the thumb will display in my account and library correctly in PPr as the modified version, but when it is opened on the PPr timeline, it displays the content of the previous template that had been deleted...
    I updated to Ae v17.5 and PPr 14.5 last week. I had…

  13. Dynamic Link After Effects projects within After Effects projects

    When transitions between scenes are more complex using Premiere to dynamic link AE comps isn't an option. Being able to dynamic link .aep files within .aep files would allow multiple users to work simultaneously on different precomps while not disturbing or overwriting the master comp.

    When we're up against deadlines we need 2-3 animators working at the same time. It would save a lot of time not to collect a comp work on it, bring it back in and replace the old one or simply waiting for one animator to finish their task before another can open the file and…

  14. Workflow between illustrator and after effects (ai layer to shape layer in AE)

    Hi, feature request please. It would be great to improve the link between illustrator and after effects.
    - It's actually impossible to get the path with stroke correctly from an illustator's shape layer : the brush is vectorized and we can't trim path it correctly in after effect.
    - we still can't transform an ai text to a text layer in ae...
    - the gradiant aren't available while creating shape layer from ai file
    - it would be great to have the possibility to create bin in illustrator ( as already existing in photoshop) for conversion in AE (i mean…

  15. Remove Animation as the default rendering codec

    It is not supported on any modern OS.

    (When I teach my (newbie) students about rendering, I have to do a lot of technical explanation on how and why to set up a more efficient rendering preset.)

  16. Fix bug and allow composition start timecodes later than 23:57:33:15

    This seems to be a bug. Composition start timecodes later than 23:57:33:15 (if comp fps is set to 23.976) automatically resolve to 23:57:33:15. If the comp is made from a footage item with a start timecode later than that, it will display the correct start timecode but entering the Composition Settings box will cause it to revert to 23:57:33:15.

  17. Bug: When adding an expression to the Source Text property of a Text Layer, the text auto right justifies and can't be changed.

    Bug: When adding an expression to the Source Text property of a Text Layer, the text auto right justifies and can't be changed.

    This occurred while attempting to set up motion graphics templates for lower thirds. I originally found the issue when I tested with multiple types of expressions to be certain. While any expression is applied to the Source Text property, all text in the layer is locked to right justify. This happens even if the Source Text on that layer is parented to the Source Text on a different layer that is left or center justified.

    Ideally, text…

  19. Bug in comp.exportAsMotionGraphicsTemplate() when exporting Motion Graphics Templates from ExtendScript in AE 2020

    I need to make an automated workflow for versioning motion graphics templates and exporting .mogrt files. I've implemented a .jsx script to do so.

    However, when exporting via script using exportAsMotionGraphicsTemplate, the exported .mogrt files loose some properties in their embedded deifnition.json files - they miss eg. default values, default text strings and their menu options arrays are empty.

    This means they are not working in Premiere, where the result is empty dropdown menus and text inputs that reset to empty and will only send empty strings to the template regardless of user input.

    Attached is a zip file with…

  20. Enable/disable Constrain Proportions on Multiple Layers

    Is there a way to select multiple layers and uncheck constrain proportions on all of them at once? That would save a lot of time as opposed to selecting multiple layers, hitting s, then unchecking each individual link button.
