  1. PLANAR TRACKING AS MOCHA

    You could improve the After Effects tracking/stabilizing tools using the planar tracking method (as Mocha) instead of traditional point tracking method.

  4. Adobe 21 Century vs. Footage (none) Window

    Dear Adobe, may we remove "Footage (none)" Window if there is no purpose for it if, uhm, well, no footage is there?
    For the sake of good ole housekeeping or wait unless we hit 22nd century?

  5. Allow track mattes to be used multiple times

    Track mattes should be able to be used by multiple other layers and no longer required to live directly above they layer they affect.

    It's very common to need to reuse a matte. The way things are now, I have to duplicate my mattes for every single layer that uses them.

    I should just be able to select which layer I want to use as a matte (along with alpha/luma options) and be able to reuse that matte for as many other layers as needed.

  6. *********IMPORTANT:https://www.behance.net/gallery/67706495/Adobe-Lumetri-CC-Prototype

    But NO as another app. It needs to be an improved version of Lumetri modules of After Effects and Premiere Pro, because of the Adobe fluid (non destructive) workflow. It has more sense than developing another kind of Speed Grade as another one app:(. All in one is really better ;)

  7. Bug 15.1.0 and 15.1.1: Cached preview needs 2 ore more frames to playback

    I suddenly received the error "Cached Preview needs 2 ore more frames to playback" for a project and export also did not work anymore. It is reproducible on macOS 10.12.6 and 10.13.5 with 15.1.0 and 15.1.1. I went back to 15.0.1 and it works (upgrading again to 15.1.1 leads to the fact that it does not work anymore again).

  8. Improve PNG Sequences

    I'm seeing it more & more, especially when I do a Time-Reverse layer. Sometimes my PNG Sequences have random blank frames where my art should be visible. Sometimes zooming in & back out again fixes it, sometimes not. It's incredibly frustrating.

    SIDENOTE: Your hyperlink to "Bug Reports" on forums.adobe.com is broken. It's probably a mis-typed link.

  9. Make common tasks faster/ easier like the Motion v2 plugin does

    I know this is a rather open request, but I highly recommend someone on the AE dev team checks this out and tries to update AE to be easier and quicker to use expressions, null, track matte/ mask, organize/ rename layers, etc.

  10. AE community library of common and working expressions

    it would be great to have an effects-like window where we could contribute to and draw from common expressions like continuous rotation, inertia, bounce etc.

    Rather than having to code each time or refer to an external text document.

  11. Global styles.

    Possibility to define object styles, which could be applied to many layers. Editable in separate palette make changes in all layers.

    Similar to InDesign Object style. Should be possible to be driven with expressions.

  14. Fix CC Mr. Mercury bug - Compositing Options Effect Opacity not working

    Effect Opacity under Compositing Options used in conjunction with CC Mr. Mercury has a potential bug. CC Mr. Mercury will fail to produce any shift in visual difference when the keyframe is activated and set to 0. Setting a kefyframe to a value of 1 then moving it over several frames to a value of 30, 63, 100 etc, will produce fine results. But setting the keyframe to a value of 0 then moving the Effect Opacity over several frames to a value of 30, 63, 100, etc, will produce a failed visual result and the effect opacity will not…

  15. Puppet pin crashing on CC 2018

    I've tried several times to place a pin on a shape layer, but it crashes every time. My shape layer has 2 groups, each group has multiple groups within it. Each time, I select the shape layer, then select the puppet pin tool, then when I click to place the first pin, the error dialog comes up and AE crashes with this message: "After Effects error: crash occurred while invoking plug-in "Puppet". I've used the puppet pin tool successfully several times before on this computer, this is the first time it has failed.

    Specs:

    After Effects CC v15.1.2 (just updated…

  16. Add a feature to allow the user add shape to a light.

    Add a cutting option in the Light Settings window that allows the user cut the light source using four shutters. It should also allow rotation of the shape.
    Another idea would be to allow the user place a shape inside the light - a Gobo projection?
    Look forward to seeign this feature added in the future.

  17. Fix the problem about the windows disappearing from screen

    If I connect with my laptop to an external screen and start working in after effects I cannot detach the screen without all my windows are moving to nirvana and there is absolutely no chance to get them back and rearrange them since all required controls are somewhere out of my screen. To fix this I have to kill all my personal menu settings. That bug exists since 2008!!! So please!

  18. One popup for all shape properties

    PLEASE (I am begging), When I want to change the properties of a shape layer, color and fill type, PLEASE put all of that into one screen. I am new to After Effects and I am constantly clicking the color swatch while wanting to change the properties of no fill, fill and gradient. I am constantly getting frustrated and wished these things were all in one click rather than separated in a color swatch and a word link. PLEASE put this in one popup!!

  19. Let us view the timeline while viewing the Graph editor

    It is very tedious to switch between the graph editor and the timeline over and over again.

    By changing this it would be possible to easily change the keyframes position, moving layers and adjusting the velocity of the keyframes in the same workspace.

  20. Add metadata back in to project files

    After Effects used to add in a "CreatorTool" to the xmp metadata in the project file (eg. "<xmp:CreatorTool>Adobe After Effects CC 2018 (Windows)</xmp:CreatorTool>").

    This is really useful for finding out the version of AE the project was created in, so the correct version can be opened (especially when coding). This also displayed data in Adobe Bridge that's now missing.

    Any reason why this was removed in CC 2019? Can we have it back?
