  1. Make it easier to view Imported Assets

    Right now the only way to view an asset without adding it to a composition is my watching it in the Footage window, which is a bit slow and clunky to work with.
    It would be really useful to be able to scrub through assets like videos and sounds faster to recognize them.

    One way of approaching this would be to match the Project Window/Media Browser with Premiere Pro's a bit more.

    An other would be to improve the footage window by making it more responsive so it could be used as an video previewing tool.

  2. lumeri color mor HSL keyer refine controls

    eat mask inward/outward,
    show mask on alpha/ transparent option
    input garbage mask for hsl
    correction I think there should be more controls as seen in the basic at least.
    but what if HSL Secondary would be a separate module and an option to be added to any onther lumetri correction
    vigniette what if it could be moved by position. better yet to visualized
    by mask so it becomes a custom mask...

  5. I cannot have AE 15.0 installed in parallel with 15.1 (new codec - breaks 200 projects for me) and so I have to leave the platform?!?!

    I cannot have AE 15.0 installed in parallel with 15.1 (new codec - breaks 200 projects for me) and so I have to leave the platform?!?! Adobe must at least give us a door to open our old AE projects intact with a possibility to do a parallel install of a dot release! As it is now I cannot update and that SUCKS BIGTIME!

  6. a shortcut to flip through the drop-down menus in the Effects Control Panel

    a shortcut to flip through the drop-down menus in the Effects Control Panel. Something similar to the shortcut in the Layers Panel (Shift+ +, -) would be nice. Thank you!

  7. Keyframe stopwatch on ALL properties

    its 2018, why the discrimination? I believe all properties matter, let us keyframe them how we please. #allpropertiesmatter The new AE even has the property pick whips next to them, but they do nothing.

    I'm really just trying to keyframe the shape of the range selector in text animators.

  8. Master Properties - bugs and issues

    Master Properties are really amazing - thanks for adding this feature. However, there are currently some bugs and drawbacks.


    • On v15.1.1 (Mac), when re-naming the properties, rapidly hitting delete has crashed AE several times. I need to slowly delete if I've made an error

    • They are not recognized when network rendering via the Render Engine. Every property goes back to the default setting

    • You can't copy/paste any keyframes, even though they are just simple number values.

  9. Per-project Auto-Save

    This would allow you to still have the global preferences settings for Auto-Save and would add an override to the project settings window. That way, if you're working on a project that you don't want auto-saving or want it saving less often, you can change it for that one project without worrying about having to remember to re-enable/reset it.

  10. The April release of After Effects CC 2018 has a bug. After pushing the reverse telecine button nothing happens. No cadence proposals at all

    The April release of After Effects CC 2018 (15.1.1/Build 12) has a bug. After pushing the reverse telecine button nothing happens. In earlier versions the AE made a proposal which cadencen to choose from.

  12. Visible Keyframes in Timeline creates MASSIVE memory suck

    It seems that the more keyframes that are visible in the timeline has a direct impact on memory usage On Windows 10, up to date CC. For a simple Pos/Rot/Scale track, by seeing 10 seconds worth of keyframes uses 20 gigs of Ram. Scroll just to the right where there's no keyframes. Down to 7 gigs. Is this a known bug or an underlying programming necessity to load keyframe data that's visible into RAM?

  14. Keyboard shortcut for adding a Position Keyframe also adds one to the Master Properties of a subcomp

    When I do Shift-Alt-P on Windows, it adds a keyframe for both position AND a position Master Property. Seems more like a bug, as adding a keyframe for both seems like a rarer use case than just adding a position keyframe.

  16. Dockable, vertical, editable toolbar

    It would be great if the toolbar could be displayed vertically like in Illustrator and Photoshop, and dockable to the sides of the AE window.
    On top of that, it would be great to be able to edit what is shown in the toolbar, also like in AI and PS.
    For example, I never use the paint tools so I could hide them, but would like the Convert Vertex tool to be always displayed without having to click and hold on the pen icon.
    Having the ability to create new toolbars with a custom selection of tools would be handy…

  17. Create folder containing selected items in Project panel

    When selecting multiple files in the Project panel and pressing 'Create New Folder' a new folder should be created with all the selected files inside. Instead of then having to manually move all files in.
    Perhaps this could be done by holding down a key and pressing Create a new folder, maybe CMD and click?

  18. Add Purge Disk Cache (only) to Edit>Purge menu

    The TWO Memory related purges under Edit>Purge> also remove the Undo history - this is bad.
    Edit>Purge>ImageCache is fine as it is.
    Need quicker access to only purge the Disk Cache; without having to dive into the Prefs Dialog.

  19. Search for text layers

    Recently needed to change multiple text layer names and had to manually open every comp and find them. Would be nice to be able to search for them by name or content (either would be handy).

  20. What if every parameter of an every effect could be duplicatable?...

    For purposes, like:
    Lumetri Color, exposure slider from -7 to 7 what If I need more of it,
    Radial Blur what if I need more then hundred but within one controllable center,
    Transform FX, what if I need just to double offset per layer by index but still want to maintain general offset controls for all of them, and one last I'd like to go opposite direction...
    Imagine How easy would be offsetting values linked to expressions by just duplicating the needed parameter inside layer dropdown menu, just like inside the compositing option right now has mask input that could…
