  1. ACTUALLY LET US MAKE A DIRECT COMPLAINT

    How about instead of making us VOTE for features we want you to repair. You take the money we give you every month and fix the problems. No broken feature should require a popularity contest to get fixed. It's pathetic.

  2. Lock Workspace

    I think it would be useful to borrow the Lock Workspace feature from Photoshop for After Effects, esp with the wide use of so many scripts and CEP panels in many workflows. I accidentally pull off tabs or slide them around in my day-to-day use of AE, esp since I’m using a Wacom pen most of the time.

    I’m sure there’s some wrinkles to consider, esp when switching Workspaces while locked - do you prompt with a pop-up or automatically switch it?

  3. Bug Report: Immersive Environment Projection Options

    In Version 18, they removed the "VR Goggles" from the Composition Window which is where we would change the projection for the Adobe Immersive Enviroment so that the footage would be properly displayed inside of a VR Headset. You didn't give us another place to change this settings so any versions of AE past 17.7.0 are unusable for 360 VR workflows. Can we get our button back? #AdobeUXQC_Fail

  4. an indicator to show which expression engine is in use

    Currently there is no way to tell what expression engine is in use, without opening up the prefs to check. Using the legacy expressions engine causes annoying expressions errors, that can be hard to debug if you don't realise that the legacy expressions engine is running.
    An indicator (or switch) in the UI, maybe as part of the expressions editor would be helpful.

  6. Missing curent render information v.2020

    Missing Important function (curent render information show when click "current render"):

    In the latest version of the program (2022), information about the currently rendered item is missing.

    See the picture.

    This feature saved the project a couple of times by pinpointing the layer in the composition that was causing the problem.
    Please restore functions.

    Regards.

  8. Change Default Render Option to "Queue in AME"

    Allow users to choose "Queue in AME" as the default export option rather than "Render". This would standardize it with PPro which has "Queue" selected by default.

  9. Allow access to Source Text / Value

    I remember that some versions ago we could access the 'value' of Source Text via the context menu. But it is grey now, which makes it hard to edit empty text objects (i.e. when those were drive by an expression, but now need to be edited manually). Clicking in the canvas is no serious and reliable option, when the Text Layer already exists.
    Please make this value accessible again.

  10. Bug Report: AE Spot Lights and Null objects

    Pickwhiping a (Spot Lights) 'Point of Interest' to a 'Null' object fails to attach said value as moving the Null no longer affects the position of 'Point of Interest'.

    This bug was introduced in a (CC 2020) update and continues to persist into the current version of CC 2020 and later versions of After Effects.

  11. No more ugly splash screens please.

    Whe we launch After Effects, it could be great if the splash screen would be:

    • Beautiful
    • Inspiring
    • In relation with After Effects, somehow.

    We're not just users, we're also artists, and our environment is very important to our creativity, we're always looking for new stuff, for inspiration.

    please indicate if there is a valuechange between keyframes.

    If there is no value change, use a dashed line.

  13. Show version name in About panel

    It's hard to find out which Ae version is running. Only the behind the scenes version number and build are show, not the CC name.

    Jan, could you please elaborate what you mean by “CC name”?

    A couple of years ago, Creative Cloud apps like After Effects stopped using the “CC 20XX” branding. We generally refer to the different versions by their technical version number (in your screenshot, 18.4.1), or by the year and month of release (18.4 = August 2021).

    We realize that this can be a little bit confusing, which is why the latest release of After Effects has been versioned as 22.0. This will align it with our coming releases in the year 2022. The other Adobe video and audio apps, like Premiere Pro, have also aligned their version numbers in this way, making it the first time Pr, AE, AME, and Au are all on the same version number! Easy peasy.

  14. Sub-composition doesn't render on screen

    This is a bug:
    Create a new project.
    Create a new comp 1920x1080 (main).
    Create another comp 128x128 (small), draw a red rectangle on it. You'll see the path, but not the red rectangle!
    Place "small" onto "main". In "main" you can see the red rectangle. But if you open "small", you still see nothing.
    If you change the width of "small" comp to 593 or more, you see the red rectangle on screen. If the width is 592 or less, you see nothing.

  16. Comp window "used X times" navigation dropdown bug?

    I love, and always use the "used X times" dropdown at the top of the comp window, but recently the choices seem to be randomly grayed out half the time. I can't determine if anything else effects this behavior. Thanks!

  18. Flip Flop After Effects!

    Please change the effects “Flip” and “Flop” to Horizontal Flip and Vertical Flip! It seems very unnecessary and strange that they are called that and should match Premiere/the rest of the industry! PLEASE!

  19. Revert the icons to the multi-colored versions!

    This is an Adobe CC wide issue but AE is where I notice it the most.

    Please revert the icons to the multi-colored versions! It makes no sense to make them the same color when the "themes" break down beyond video and photo use. I used the colors to quickly locate the software I needed to open, now I have a taskbar full of purple and have to squint to tell which letters I am clicking on.

    It seems like a very poor design choice that was likely made by the boardroom, not the creative team, and I beg you…

  20. Return from the Dark Side

    I have a real problem:
    Dark user interface triggers my horrible migraine.

    Latest Photoshops fortunately have restored
    the option to change UI light.

    I suggest that the same would be done to After Effects.

    I physically can't use it now but I know that also a lot of
    other artists find lighter UI more relaxing to the eyes.
