  1. Bug: Essential graphics. Replacing comp breaks master property keyframes

    Master properties with keyframes works great so far in general, but I've found a major problem.

    If I replace the Essential Graphics layer with a new version, all the keyframes go away, even though in my case all of the master properties were the same. I also had trouble pasting the old keyframes onto the new layer. I was getting errors about what type of keyframe even though I was pasting the same kind of property (literally the same).

    What I was doing was trying to make an alternate version of my Essential Graphics template. The master properties stayed constant.…

  2. pointsOnPath/normalOnPath bug

    I'm using the createPath() function to create an arrow based on a driver path (the arrow will follow the driver path). I created a driver path that has two points and no bezier handles. I make the expression and the results are that the end of the arrow next to the first point on driver path won't take the expressions normals that I coded. They are at 0 height above the path. Until I add a bezier handle to the driver path's origin point - it can be any bezier handle, and everything will work as expected. I've included an…

  3. Every effect allow a layer to control effect intensity - similar to Set Matte

    Allow users to control the intensity of all effects by using an optional matte input that works similar to the Set Matte filter.

    Want to use another layer matte to drive the effect. Default would be "none"

  4. AE CC 2019 Make Current Time display larger

    The Current Time Display is probably the simgle most important number display in the interface. It is too small to comfortably read. Please make it larger (at least as a preference).

  6. AE 2019 fails to load libraries

    AE 2019 seems to fail to load libraries, or to just display them. It dosplays the title of the current library, but no item for it, and the list remains empty.

    objects from libraries, previously linked, work, and can even be updated. This is really the panel that stays empty.

  7. BANDING :(

    After Effects shouldn't generate banding errors easily (defined steps of luma and chroma). Premiere Pro goes better than After Effects in terms of banding when you use smoothed masks or blur effects.

  8. Make Color Management settings scriptable

    I'm setting up an OpenColorIO workflow, and it would be really nice if I could write a script to check if 'Preserve RGB' was checked for all appropriate items or if the Project Working Space was set to ACEScg. Users choosing the incorrect colorspaces has been one of our big issues in round-trips between packages.

    You could add the same Lumetri Color functions in both Premiere Pro and After Effects, as the color match tool.

  12. IMPROVED CINEMA 4D PROCESSOR

    You could improve the C4D 3D processor, enabling functionalities as:

    • merge modes
    • follow-up partners
    • layer styles
    • masks and effects in:
    Rasterized layers continuously
    shape and text layers
    3D precomposition layers contracted
    • Conservation of the underlying transparency.
    • light transmission
    • transparency and refractive index
    • accepts only shadows
    • motion blur
    • Depth of field of the camera

    TKS, Adobe ;)

  13. Bug

    There's a bug, sometimes when I try to edit with the graph editor the line between keyframes can't be adjusted (like to make it slow then fast or vice versa)

  15. MOCHA

    You are doing great putting mocha AE as a After Effects plug-in, but you could add imagineer systems' mocha technology inside After Effects software as another integrated native tool.

  16. having an option to remove un-used plugins directly from after effects

    I've been trying many ways to delete plugins that I dont use anymore in after effects but for some reason, the plugins are still present in the effects and presets section in the folder, is there any way we can remove the plugin from the folder directly from after effects so it won't appear again?

  18. audio spectrum bug

    I just grappled with a bug involving the Audio Spectrum effect. Well, to be honest, it was only an hour today but this has also halted my workflow many other times in the past. I think I have a bit more clarity this time, though. So here goes:

    I have a solid layer with an Audio Spectrum effect applied. I sometimes reuse this layer/effect as I work from existing project files to more quickly complete similar work tasks.

    When I try to have the Audio Spectrum effect refer to a different audio layer, the spectrum visuals get all screwy. They…
