  1. Improve the Search field in the timeline to allow for multiple terms

    Be able to combine terms in the Search field to further drill down into the various elements of a layer.

    For example: Fill + Opacity returning only the Fill Opacity property for the selected layers.

    Current implementation has Fill return the Fill Rule variable and Opacity returns every Opacity variable for the entire layer.

  2. Add support for 3dconnexion

    Adding support for 3dconnexion 3d mice would allow greater flexibility when working in 3d space. It would also make the job a lot easier for some of us.

    Thanks!

  4. Bug Report: 'CC Composite' has an offset in AE CC2019

    In specific cases, the "CC composite"-effect works differently in CC2018 then in CC2019. In most cases, you won't see a difference, but combining certain blurs on multiple layers gives the CC composite a bit of an offset to the upper left.

    Let me give an example: A simple comp with three layers. The two upper ones are adjustment layers. The bottom one is a black solid.

    • The top adjustment layer has an opacity of 50% and has a "CC Composite" effect on it
    • The middle adjustment layer has an opacity of 1% and has a "Fast Box Blur" with a…

  5. Selected keyframe should not overlap!

    As you can see, the selected keyframe (in blue) is covered by the gray one. Very bad design! Selected keyframe should be above everything else!

  6. Content-Aware Fill progress indicator

    The Content-Aware Fill panel needs to show not just a percent indicator during frame analysis/rendering but also the estimated time remaining. (I've been staring at the percent value slowly increment but I don't know if this is going to take 10 minutes or 10 hours.)

  7. 3D Shape Repeater looses the 3D properties

    Dear Sirs,

    I am not sure what my idea involves from the programming point of view, maybe also other users also asked, but I am talking about using the Shape Repeater, in case the Shape is 3D. The repeated shapes, no matter the number, do not keep the 3D Shape properties.
    Is it possible from the software engineering /programming point of view to solve it? It could be interesting ! But it is just my point of view.
    Thank you much in anticipation,

    Catalin Dacian Gulan

  8. Make layers deform in z axis 3D

    I have always found it frustrating that you can not alter a layer in 3D at all.

    You can work with a 2D flat video layer but you can not deform it at all in the z axis.

    This would add the ability to treat a layer more like a face in a 3d app like Maya. You could add points and move them forward or back in z space like the puppet tool only not limited to x and y values.

  9. Support for 125% text scaling in Windows 10

    Having upgraded from 1080p to 1440p monitors, the recommended text scaling for windows (125%) causes After Effects to render its UI text blurred/fuzzy. This is a big drawback having invested in better monitors, as the alternative is going back to 100% text scaling, which is incredibly small on my displays.

  10. revamp the mesh warp

    the whole distort family effects would need some love, but the mesh warp could be a super powerful tool if could :
    -have access to every points and tangeants positions
    -lasso select points
    -scale, shear, rotate the grid to affect only a part of the image
    -making it 3d
    -promote it to b 32bpc gpu accelerated
    -go beyond those request and make it a weapon of choice

    to my knowledge this effect has been change only once to be able to move points with arrow keys...

  11. Text expression control

    I'd love to see a "Text control" option for expression effects, where it would add a blank text box in the effects panel that a user could enter text in to be used in expressions, along with properties for text layers for things like font, alignment, leading, etc. that could be controlled via scripting.

    It will be more flexible if you can designate it not only for the upper layer but also for any layer

  15. Moving multiple keyframes of a mask at the same time

    Let's say you have a comp, and traced a mask on it. You move the mask for each frame, resulting on creating lots of keyframes. Now, you realize you need to offset the mask because the comp changed a bit. You cannot select all keyframes and move them at the same time, it will only move the keyframe the cursor is one.

  16. Reduce your monthly costs, it's not affordable!

    The monthly cost of Adobe products is so not affordable by everyone, i use it maybe a few times every few months and pay such high monthly fees is not FAIR or reasonable! Please reduce your prices, thank you. Get this message to your CEO!

  17. Skin Smoothing

    Skin smoothing is commonly found in image editors these days, and in Resolve Studio. It should be in After Effects as well.

  18. Option for set matte to start at beginning of matte animation

    You have an animated precomp that you want to use as a matte on multiple layers throughout your timeline. You want to start that matte animation from the first frame every time the matte is used. Currently you can't do that only using one matte layer. Add a checkbox to the set matte effect labeled "Start matte from the beginning" to allow that functionality.

  19. New Expression/Code Editor in After Effects 16.1

    Changes needed to new expression/code editor in After Effects 16.1

    1) Add the ability to change the font used in the expression/code editor in "Scripting & Expression" preferences.
    2) When you leave the expression/code editor the code formatting stays visible. i.e line numbers, syntax highlighting, etc.
    3) When entering the expression/code editor for any given property instead of it having the all of the code selected by default every time, have it remember previous code selection and cursor position.

  20. Snap to monitor size in Windows

    Using AE in Apple OS i am able to have multiple windows on multiple monitors and double clicking the bar at the top of the window snaps it to the monitor size.

    With Windows I can't do that so I have one main windod (the one that has the top menu) that I can click and snap to the size of my monitor, but the other window where I keep my composition or timeline I have to manually re-scale to match the size of my monitor as best as I can, but there's always a thin gap where I can…
