  1. Send a job to Media Encoder from the Render Queue.

    I find myself sending jobs to render queue and starting the render and then realizing that I have to make changes on it, so to make the changes I need to stop the render which is not convenient, if there was an option to continue the render on media encoder like ''RightClick on the job rendering - Continue on Media Encoder'' that would be really useful.

  2. Allow user to change the default mode when creating a mask. (e.g. add, subtract, none)

    When I create a mask in After Effects the mask's mode is automatically set to "add". I generally want my masks set to "none" while I am working as I am doing rotoscoping. It would be great if I could choose what the default mode is for newly created masks.

  4. Support for 180° Stereoscopic viewing in Adobe Immersive Environment

    Adobe Immersive Environment only supports 360° for Monoscopic and the two Stereoscopic modes of viewing currently. As someone who works with a lot of stereo 180° video, this is disappointing.

    I have to convert to 360° over under to view my footage, and doing this in the software slows things down quite a bit.

  6. Wrap Stabilizer BUG

    The Wrap Stabilizer function is not reliable at all. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it displays the message "Unable to acquire rendered frame"
    I have tried different clips, and it crashes on all of them. I'm not the only one who encountered this problem, which doesn't seem to have a solution. PLEASE HELP!!

  9. Bug in Track Motion

    When i try to use Track Motion, After Effects only tracks 1 frame and then stops, making it impossible to track my sequences. My colleagues do not experience this, they have tried using the exact same files and it works on their machines. It works for me with mp4 files but not image sequences.

  10. Save backup project to creative cloud

    Have a backup project that is automatically saved to the cloud when you save the local project file, like Premiere has.

  13. Path points not editable or stretching attributes

    I'm experiencing strange bugs in the path item on a shape layer.

    When I make a two point path (a line) I can no longer go back to edit those points, most of the time. The other times it creates strange affects to other attributes, such as stroke. Stretching the stroke instead of redrawing it at the same width across the path.

    I tested in 2017, and initial tests show the expected result, the points are editable and the stroke shows up the right way. But the 2018 version is acting totally different.

    A video to show what I'm experiencing…

  14. Prevent comp expression reference errors when importing project with same-name compositions

    Example: I have a project with a "Video" comp. I import a project that contains another "Video" comp, and another comp with expressions referencing the "Video" comp. This reference now goes to the wrong comp.

    Obviously, the expression should reference the "Video" comp in the imported project, but this is not the case (at least not always).

    Solution 1: Go to the closest comp in the project files. You choose the comp that you need to go up the least folders to get to. This means that it'll prioritize the comp if it's in the newly created "<project file>.aep" folder.

  15. Show the keyframe duration in the Timeline

    This small feature was suggested by sandervandijk:

    http://www.sandervandijk.tv/after-effects-features/keyframes#keyframe-duration

    Adding this small eye candy of darkening the area behind the keyframe would make the timeline a lot easier to read for me as it looks a lot more structured.

  16. Bug Report - AE 15.0.1 - lumetri scopes - RGB Parade - Green Channel is not correct

    There is a bug in After Effects when you open Lumetri Scopes - RGB Parade. The green channel is not displaying correctly. Even with a pure black solid (displays the green channel as slightly lifted) or a pure white solid (displays the green channel as slightly clipped). Confidence in scopes is very important and clearly we cannot trust the Lumetri Scopes' accuracy.

  19. RenderQueue.render interacts poorly with undo.

    I understand that it doesn't make a lot of sense to undo rendering but I maintain a suite of scripts (written by others) which do a lot of complicated project manipulation along with rendering here and there.

    The scripts stopped working in CC2017; app.project.renderQueue.render() wouldn't do anything. No errors, it would just immediately return without running the render. app.onError would catch a couple of lines suggesting a render was started but only for the first item in the RQ.

    During the course of ripping everything apart and putting it back together again I started getting these "undo group mismatch, attempting…

  20. Batch or Group Replace Layers

    It would be awesome if AE could replace multiple layers in the timeline with multiple items in the Project Panel (while holding the Option key) like some sort of group replace mechanism. The order in which the files in the Project panel could match the existing selected layers in the timeline could be based on which item in the Project Panel was clicked first, second, third, etc.
    Or even better: right-click on the selected items in the Project panel and make a new 'group replace' menu? Maybe a pop window appears that confirms the layers to be replaced with the…
