  1. EPS Antialiasing Preferences

    I build most of the graphics for my animations in AI, then import into AE. A lot of the graphics I create are complex and/or rely on gradients. Once they're in AE they look low res and choppy.

    Currently, the only solution is to select each individual layer in the Project Panel, click "Interpret Footage," select more options, eps options, antialiasing, then "More Accurate." Not the end of the world, but annoying.

    I'd like to request an option to make this easier and quicker to do en masse. Preferably an option within the preferences panel referring to EPS antialiasing. Or…

  3. Shortcut: trim layer to work area time / set in and out time of layer to in and out time of work area.

    I spend so much time using the bracket keys to trim layers and most of the time I'm trimming to the work area boundaries. There should be a shortcut that does this automatically. When you duplicate a layer from another time or drop a new layer in a comp, just press a shortcut key to trim it to the work area. Simple but will save so much time manually trimming layers to the work area.

  4. BUG: Masking a Lumetri adjustment layer transforms the underlying footage...

    weird mask bug here.

    I have footage. I put an adjustment layer above it. I put Lumetri in it. I go and draw a mask to make the adjustment just inside that mask.... the normal relighting routine.

    Usually this would work flawlessly. But today when I tried it it results in the underlying image data being masked, yes. But the footage is also squeezed into that area.

    With other effects, like Curves. It works as expected. But with the lumetri effect it squishes the footage like a canadian comedian squishes heads... See attached image

    I guess I can't mask adjustments…

  6. dump the flowchart view

    Nobody uses it and i'm always accidentally opening it (it's right next to "reveal layer source in project"). If you're going to implement node workflow them keep the code, but at least remove the menu item.

  7. "Permacache" - Ability to define a comp that never loses its RAM preview cache

    Ability to define comp(s) that never give up their preview cache for precomp use.

    Reasoning: If doing a conform for a sequence of edits, and each shot is a precomp, it would help to be able to always jump back out to the main sequence and "play it down" with minimal rendering required. Only updated comps would need re-rendering.

    It kind of does this now - however, as soon as the system runs out of RAM, the oldest cache goes which is usually from the master comp while working on conforms.

    OR - comps that are defined to be 'permacached'…

  8. Import Xd Files into AE

    I would like to be able to import Adobe Xd Files into After Effects, to create animations in your app design. Furthermore, it would be great if you can use these animations from After effects in Adobe Xd to prototype your app.

  10. Many Character Panel font previews rendering using system font

    For the last few versions of After Effects (I joined CC in Nov 2017) I don't remember the font sample previews ever working properly. Some fonts do show previews. but many are missing.

    Does anyone know how to fix this, or is this a bug? Is it possible to flush the preview cache and force a recompute?

    I'm on Windows 7 x64 Pro, with AE CC 2018 (15.1.2 Build 69)

    I have quite a few fonts on my system (1000+) but Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign CC have no problem generating font previews correctly.

  11. Show Peak Audio Value in Audio Panel

    Like other apps, show a bar indicating the peak audio level during playback. Just a bar indicating where the highest volume point was. Bonus points if this can also be displayed as a numerical value.

    Requesting because delivery specifications of a comp can vary from medium to medium and I'd like to be able to adjust the volume within AE rather than exporting separate audio tracks at multiple volume levels from another app.

  12. BUG: OpenEXR different Color AE/PP

    Hello,
    we render a lot with OpenEXR in After Effetcs. If I am import them into Premiere the Color is different in comparison when I import them in After Effects. My workaround is to import the File in After Effects and make an dynamik Link in Premiere Pro.

    By the way, the compression slider for Exporting OpenEXR is missing in After Effects. In AME there is a compression Slider for OpenEXR.

    Thank you for your Time

  14. ASCII project files

    Please provide an option to save project files as ASCII files instead of binary. This is particularity needed for source control (such as when checking in After Effects projects into a Git repository) and for traceability (i.e., who/when changed what) but also allows project issues to be easily rectified with a simple text editor (such as performing search-and-replace of media paths or replacing one plug-in with another and do it across projects in a fraction of the time that it would take to do it manually).

    Note that all professional content creation software support ASCII files including Maya.

  15. Keyboard Shortcuts editor doesn't list all scripts

    I have 25 scripts in the Scripts folder (and a billion more in ScriptUI...) which I'm trying to assign shortcuts in the new shortcuts editor, but the editor is only listing the first 17 (alphabetically).

    This was working fine for me a week ago and suddenly stopped. Relaunching/rebooting doesn't fix it. The shortcuts that I had assigned when it was working (and which are still listed), are assigned to other scripts.

  16. It would be great to be able to invert and keyframe the freeze area mask in the liquify effect, so that it effects the deformation

    It would be great to be able to invert and keyframe the freeze area mask in the liquify effect, so that its effect on the deformation throughout the animation can change, rather than just being a "stencil" for individual brush strokes being applied.

  17. Workspace dissapeared

    I created a simple character in illustrator and imported it into my after effects project file. The character used some rigging, but this was by no means an advanced animation. I created two solids (below the character layers) and on one I tried to add Fractal Noise, but after doing that I am no longer able to see my workspace. I have attached a screenshot for reference. You will see in my second screenshot that I am able to select the elements that are in the composition, they just are not visible.

    This must have corrupted my file in some…

  18. Option to Import of Seq With Missing Frames as Multiple Sequences

    I'd like an option to have an image sequence with missing frames be brought in as separate image sequence items.

    Reason being, if an edit uses multiple instances of the same clip but from different in/out points, and I need to deliver shots with matching timecode and clip IDs, it currently requires a rather tedious build of the comps.

    The problem is when I add a video into after effects then on playback this red line appears. Even if I randomly shift the marker to another point the red line appears again. Due to this red line the video is looping around that part for a short time but each time it loops with the red line appearing continuously Please help. https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2182742
