  1. A 3D Engine - for basic 3D work direkt in AE and 3D data import form other tools

    In compositing every media comes together.
    But there are not only videos, photos, graphics and sound out there...there is also 3D! - everywhere!

    So AE needs to understand 3D data from other applications and should do basic 3D operations direct inside.

    2D planes in space, slow fake 3D or an unstable link to only one "beginner" 3D tool is not enough in 2018.

  2. Ellipse Path Closing with Trim Paths

    There seems to be a bug when working with parametric ellipse paths in tandem with trim paths.

    It only seems to occur when the Start or End properties in the trim path are set to 50%, while the other is set to 0%. I've attached a couple videos for reference.

    When the ellipse path position is adjusted the ellipse path will occasionally close itself, resulting in an unwanted half-circle. The half circle is a result of the Start property set to 0%, and the End property set to 50%. However, when the values are swapped (Start: 50%, End: 0%) it…

  3. After Effects 2018 in render only mode: possible bug

    We are currently having an issue with submitting After Effects 2018 files to Deadline 10. We have no issues with After Effects 2017, so there had to have been a change made in the programming between the two. We want to move forward with using 2018 but this slows our entire rendering pipeline. We need a solution for this! Here is the Adobe support forum I was pointed to this page by. https://forums.adobe.com/message/10571227 from what I am seeing this is not happening with many different rendering management software, not just deadline. Our IT department has tried everything they can with…

  4. JSON + expressions = highly unstable

    When working with JSON data in a project, writing general expressions results in AE becoming highly unstable. The resulting crashes will often result in a corrupt project recovery-file being generated.

    It seems like the function sourceRectAtTime() is causing a lot of trouble, especially when passing a time parameter to it, i.e. 'sourceRectAtTime(thisComp.duration/2, true)'.

  5. Full Screen Interface Resizing on File Open

    I am a professional VFX designer and in my space setup, I have a dedicated 3rd TV for preview via Mercury Transmit. We have discovered that this feature does not work if the main AFX window is just one pixel on that desktop space. So I keep AFX in full screen mode (maximized window.) Great that's probably where it should be.

    Now the annoying bug: Every time you open an AEP file from Explorer, After Effects drops out of the maximized window view and then the 3rd monitor stops working. Why does AXF do this? No reason. Sounds small, as…

  6. AE "none" comps in Timeline

    it seems to be a bug that i can see about 25-30 comps by the name of "none" which doesn't even exist in the project panel but still every time i close the comps, it reappears twice in a day.

  7. Keep "reveal layer source in project" on 2 clicks

    Please take back "reveal layer source in project" to 2 clicks by not putting it on a submenu, for faster workflow.

  8. Don't re-size window when opening files from File Explorer

    Under Windows, whenever I have After Effects open and maximized, and I double-click a file in File Explorer, After Effects insists on resizing itslef to 2K on my 4K screen. Don't do this!!! Leave the size of the window untouched like any normal program does.

  10. Bug - Folder doesn't exist

    I have a default custom output path set to render into the folder my project is in. I have a subfolder specified in the custom output.

    Every time I go to render the first render (before the subfolder is created), AE gives me an error that the folder doesn't exist (even though it's supposed to create it), and when I clear that error and hit render again it works fine. I have a feeling it's because the custom output path, doesn't actually tick that "Save in subfolder" box until the second time. Or maybe it fails the check, then creates…

  11. Find Missing Cache Folder on Startup

    When I start up AE and forget to plug in my external cache drive (I like a large blank drive for a cache) I have to force wuit or it resets my preferences. I would like to see an option to dismiss and reset as well as an option for "search existing path again".

  16. Option in the Windows tab to open new Windows undocked

    As it says in the title.
    This would be great as it'd avoid messing up carefully crafted workspaces.
