  1. set matte, set channels, calculations,etc to treat & take in an account layer's own transforms.

    Set Matte ignores if the layer had been transformed in some way when it is used as a track matte for ex, it treats its transformrs as well, but any matte options in any effect would ignore original transformations if there is any...

  2. every effect, every layer and shape transform to be dupliactable and scalable

    so like the compositing option under each effect where you can duplicate and create mask input as many as needed, why won't there be a transform for each effect and why won't add duplicatable transform to be available.
    Because so many times you just need another transform offset for a particular effect, or particular mask or particular shape and you have to workaround it like adding transform FX or offset effects, or duplicating and cutting out and adding back in the second layer...

  3. A vector field displacement effect

    It would be very helpful for a lot of generative effects to create warping fields that are less rigid than mesh or bezier warp. Something like in step one of this project.

  4. Frame rate mismatch with rotobrush

    What is going on here? I'm working with all the same footage, within the same project, and all of a sudden rotobrush won't work because "frame rate mismatch". I search the internet for the source of my mistake, but I can't find it :( TONS of people are having this problem, and there are workarounds (I can export it as and re-import it- but I shouldn't have to do that) but NO SOLUTIONS. What is the problem? What are we doing wrong??? PLEASE ADOBE! TELL US!!! I don't want workarounds, I want the answer.

  5. Copying and moving mask animations on the same layer

    When having several masks on the same layer, you cannot curently copy and move them to another position on your layer (as to make the same animation play in two different positions on your layer). When selcting all of the keyframes for one or several masks, if you then try to move them, it creates a new keyframe on the CTI for where you have put your mask, rusulting in wonky animations. I would like it if when selecting all the keyframes for one or several masks, and move the mask, it moves the position of the mask on all…

  6. Save changes to this workspace

    Please change order of the "Reset to Saved Layout", "Save Changes to this workspace" and "Save as new workspace"

    or

    Add an "Are you sure you want to change the workspace? Yes - No"

    I click 4 to 5 times a week the wrong button (save changes) and save my workspace with wrong positions and windows.

    Very very very frustrating.

    Thank you.

  9. Lumetri Color to show exact values in wheels and hue

    wheels are abstract and could not be linked with expressions, because there are no values. could be helpful in cases if you'd need to reverse the wheels with exact values

  10. Lumetri Color to be Senseied

    I've done my own research on what I do almost everytime when I adjust Lemtri sliders, and connected some of them via expressions so that' I use 2 sliders for most of the settings.
    Could be a cool thing to have some clever controls, like a slider vintage to sci-fi, or night - day...

  11. Add label colour selection to new composition

    Allow the setting of label colour when you create a new comp (or precomp), rather than having it just adopt the label colour of the parent.

  12. Constant AE and Premiere crashes after April updates

    Since the April updates to AE and Premiere, both programs crash constantly. Premiere always crashes when I try and drag an ae element into a folder within the project pane. AE crashes every time I open any of the linked AE files that I use in Premiere. I have been forced to install previous versions of each program, which fixed all issues.

  14. camera raw sequence animate processing

    Would it be possible to import camera raw sequences that you could animate the processing values over time? For example, bring in a raw sequence of 100 frames and keyframe the exposure value to change from 0 to -2 over the span of the sequence. I know it's not memory friendly, but would be useful for timelapsers.

  15. resize mask from corner

    On Windows 10.0.16299 Build 16299 and After Effects 15.1.1 (Build 12)

    When pasting shapes from illustrator or even creating a new mask shape in After Effects there is about a 5-10 pixel radius in which the user must hover over the corner of the mask in order to have the diagonal or 45 degree shaped pen tool appear which allows the mask to be resized from the corner, or proportionally while holding ALT + SHIFT at the same time.

    This is a feature I use across all Adobe software often as it easily allows the user to resize the mask…

  17. Bug report: Dynamically linked scenes from Character Animator not displaying properly

    My scene in AE was working until a few days ago. Now, after replacing some footage with an updated version, it is displaying the wrong information. When I preview in the timeline it slowly reveals the correct scene. However, upon rendering, it produces the wrong result. AE is very slow for me, so this new issue is very frustrating.

  18. Huge preview issue on windows 7

    On windows 7 I had this very time-consuming issue in all updates the past 1,5 years where the preview stops working and the only solution is to restart AE. This happens 5-10 times everyday.

    It seems that the only hint is that the issue comes when switching between apps and back to AE.

    When i press spacebar or any other way to play the comp, the only thing that happens is that the marker moves one frame back on the timeline.

    This issue has fallowed me through all updates but does not show on my laptop with windows 10, so…

  20. Adobe Sensei to learn how to better use rotobrush and extract hair details

    rotobrush is pretty slow on rendering, so I'd suggest to help it by building its shapes not from one frame, but creating like custom checkpoints defined buy user where he thinks the movement changes dramatically and he inavitably would draw some more brushes from there, so and meanwhile rotobush would merge its calculations inbetween those checkpoints...
