  1. Purge/release RAM during rendering

    When rendering in After Effects, the RAM is filled up to it's maximum (if needed) and then continues to cache to disk. This usually makes the computer completely useless for the time After Effects is rendering and until RAM has been purged afterwards.
    Why not purge/release the already rendered frames? Not only could the computer be used during rendering to some extend but this should probably speed up rendering as well.

  3. Move/Nudge by 1 full pixel at any zoom level (as a preference option)

    Instead of moving half a pixel at 200% zoom level, 1/4 at 400%, etc. Have the option to always move 1 full pixel. A lot of people are animating interfaces these days and you just want to make things pixel perfect. The current work flow is horrible with always zooming back to 100% or drag the postion values to move elements.

  4. Extendes Labels

    Hi, i think i have a great idea that you can might be enable to see the use in it!

    So right now i am working with a big animation in after effects, and when you have so many layers, i really find it difficult to find the layers i need because the all got the same background. And I think the color labels are to small. I made a mockup in photoshop. Hope you will look into this!

  6. Hidden Mask Lines

    I had a weird bug where my mask's lines disappeared but the points were still there. It was really great working like this but it's since "fixed" itself again after about 40 frames of roto. Everything still functioned, the points and spline handles were still visible.

    So would be really nice if I could switch the lines off.

  7. FASTER SAVING

    After Effects, which saving is really slow, should have a saving as fast as Premiere Pro.

  8. 360 VR output mismatches 3D edit when input clip has non-2:1 aspect ratio

    I'm editing 360 video shot on a Garmin VIRB 360. The footage I'm working with has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and dimensions of 3840x2160. I'm adding some simple 3D shape layers to the scene using the VR Comp Editor's "Add 3D Edit" feature. When I click back to "Open Output/Render" I notice that the object I've added to the panoramic footage does not line up with the output. After struggling with this for a while I tried the same exact same process, but I performed "Add 3D Edit" on footage I had resized to an aspect ratio of 2:1.…

  9. Timeline Scroll Bar – Option to put on left side of panel

    Having to move my cursor all the way to the right of a large monitor when scrolling is a pain when dealing with massive amounts of layers.

    If there was an option to switch it to the left, it would keep my cursor in the same area and make working more efficient.

  10. Ability to create Essential Graphic templates to use in After Effects

    I would love the ability to create templates for my team to use in projects that can be shared using Libraries. We sometimes use similar assets that need minor tweaks, a perfect time to use EG, but it is not supported in AE.

  11. BUG: Unspecified Drawing Error - AE 15.1.2 (build 69)

    BUG: Unspecified Drawing Error - AE 15.1.2 (build 69)
    When in a text layer that I attempt to edit, immediately the system throws an "Unspecified Drawing Error" and the workspace goes blank. Multiple hours of work here, and I can't seem to access it without the error popping up.

  12. split

    CC Split 3

    Hello,

    CC split 2 is a very "simple" and funny tool to create mouth animations and lip sync...

    But I have 2 simples suggestions to improve this tool.

    To be abble to change de curve profile with animation keys.

    And

    To be able to put négative split values!!! (to smile for exemple :o)

    Thanks,
    Alexis

  13. color shift in DNX quicktime renders from 15.0.0 to 15.1.2 - need to downgrade

    We recently had to downgrade back to 15.0.0 because our renders have lost color accuracy in Quicktime DNX files in the newer iterations of AE15. There is a slight luma/saturatoin shift in the newest versions. as soon as we downgrade back to 15.0.0, the color shift goes away.

  14. Solo mode on layers alert when rendering.

    When starting a render queue item, there could be an alert popping up, or a sound cue if you have layers in solo mode, to avoid waiting until a finished render until you realize half your project is not rendering.

  15. Collapsible Panels

    I would love to be able to collapse panels that I use frequently, but they're used and then put away. The way illustrator does this would be super!

  17. BUG REPORT. AE fails to overwrite Files that are selected in the OS. EVERY VERSION SINCE THE ADVENT OF OS X

    this isn't and Idea, it is a report of a show stopping, LONG TERM bug that YOU HAVE YET TO FIX.

    when rendering out of Aftereffects, over top of an existing file, the render fails, if the file is simply selected (and sometimes just visible) in the finder. and then from that point on, AE cannot render the file if the user does not first delete the file by hand.

    this BUG is at least 10 years old. It is not 1995, there is no need for this obscene punch in the gut. Time to get on it.

    mac os…

  18. Adobe XD files in Aftereffects

    hello everyone,

    it would be great feature, if Adobe XD files open in AE for animation, and the last update in AE, we were just able to import AI and PSD files, So if you people update the Aftereffects with above feature that will be great for everyone.

  19. PageMaker is to InDesign as After Effects is to...?

    Sometimes it is important to start over from the ground up and completely rethink your solution to a problem. I believe it is time for Adobe to do this with AE. Rather than continue to add patchworks of features and solutions here and there, give us a new paradigm in compositing that lives along side AE while this new app is being developed much like you did with InDesign and PageMaker.

    Things I'd like to see in this new app are:


    1. A complete reworking of 3D, rather than treating the 3D workspace and objects in it as 2.5d, the successor…

  20. dropbox

    Allow Render Queue to render a sequence into a Dropbox Folder.

    Currently when we render sequences (movies are fine) to a dropbox folder, it almost immediately gets an error and stops rendering the sequence.

    Presumably dropbox tries to sync the newly made file before AFX has written it out completely. So the file presumably comes under Dropbox's control as AFX tries to write it, causing a conflict error.

    It basically means that I'm forced to render elsewhere, then copy the files manually into the dropbox folder once done. Not ideal. No other software has this issue when writing image files…
