  1. Occasional 1 pixel edge bleed bug

    I've recently noticed a bug in AE. Occasionally there will be a 1-2 pixel edge bleed despite everything being properly sized and positioned and extending to or, in the case of the first screenshot, beyond the edge of frame. In case of the first screenshot, the bleed does go away when I continually rasterize the layer, but that's not always a workable solution. That one is an AI layer, natively sized to the comp and in its original position, so I shouldn't need to continually rasterize to have a clean edge to the frame. The second screenshot shows a white…

  2. Slow GUI and preview. + aep file causing BUG

    I'm having this problem since the first release of AE 2020 (still bad in 17.0.5). I prepared "issue.aep" file with one composition. It works ridicilously slow.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/wf6zbwqjqnnimj3/issue.aep?dl=0

    Every action requiring redrawing UI takes a lot of time and strongly loads CPU - impossible to work. "Hardware Accelerate ... Panels" option doesn't do any change. This project has many Shape Layers with Trim Paths and Fill Colors animation but works FINE and pretty fast on my machine in previous versions of AE (2019 for example).

    My system: Windows 10.0.18363 Pro, Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming, i7-9700K, 32 Gb DDR4 3466 Mhz Dual-channel,…

  4. Improved user interface and experience to match that of XD's, especially with layer manipulation

    The best thing this app could use is a refresh on its user interface.

    Being able to easily group items in a timeline with cmd+g, instead of placing layers in a separate composition would be HUGE. cmd+shift+g to ungroup, then be able to easily grab and bold text shapes on the composition viewer with hotkeys. Right now, you have to select text individually, then head to a dropdown just to bold something—what a hassle.

    Small tweaks like this would make After Effects so much more enjoyable to use. The only Adobe product I recommend to other people is XD because…

  5. after waking iMac pro from sleep. if after effects was left open, the mouse position is not correct inside after effects.

    after waking imacpro from sleep. if after effects was left open, the mouse position is not correct inside after effects. Example, if I try to click on a comp or asset in project window. After effects thinks that I am clicking about 2 inches below that area. is fixed with closing and restarting program.

  7. Easy insert of new clip

    Create a command that allows track(s) to be flush with the before and after tracks. Here is how the workflow would work in general. You have a couple of tracks in your timeline say a and b such that the last frame of a is immediately followed by the first frame of b. Now if I want to insert a clip between tacks a and b. It is very hard. I have to first align the new clip exactly with the last frame of a then I have to move over b and any other clips after b to make…

  8. AE render files have wrong timestamp

    When I render out of After Effects (.mov file in attached screenshot), it shows a timestamp of one day in the future. When I render out of Media Encoder (the mp4 file in the attached screenshot), it shows the correct timestamp. I can reproduce this error everytime.

    My computer's date and time settings are correct, in the right timezone, and synced to update automatically.

  9. BUG- PREVIEW IS F***ED in 17.0.5

    When I hit space start, when I hit space stop. Currently there is a major problem with not recognising input. So far 2020 is unuseable as a professional tool. What did you do?

  10. ブロックノイズの混入をなんとかしてほしい

    最近動画素材を読み込むと元の動画には問題ないのにも関わらず致命的なレベルのブロックノイズが混入する。
    また、同じく元の素材に問題はないのに動画素材の再生だけが停止するのも頻発している。
    素材のファイル形式がMOV、MP4でよく起きる。
    少し前から頻繁に起きるようになった。
    素材を普通に入れ直してもダメ、素材をDLやり直して名前を変えてもう一度読み込んでもダメ。
    お願いですからなんとかしてください。

  11. what the fill?

    The primary fill for shapes is not filling the object with color - have to delete the default fill and add an new one to see any fill color.

  12. Custom ZOOM factor.

    Custom ZOOM factor.
    Canvas that is too large to use 'fit' is also too small to see at 50% or 100%.

  13. Import/convert to shape for variable width profile paths from Ai should retain path and widths (not convert to outlines)

    Import/convert to shape for variable width profile paths from Ai should retain path and widths. Presently, these convert to outlines around the path (and the path is lost). Related: variable width tool in Ae - should be consistent and work seemlessly with Ai.

  16. After Effects 2020 on Mac does not work at all with Arri Alexa Footage

    After Effects 2020 on Mac does not work with Arri Alexa footage that when imported into Premiere has the AMIRA LUT automatically added. You can see my first exampled here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27MpmJfKHqg and my second example from Arri's example footage here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9aRnCeu7PE The footage drops out, goes blue, and goes upside down becoming completely useless.

    The only way to get the footage to work is to recompress it all and the reconnect, but we are talking a huge amount of ProRES 4444 footage that I really don't want to recompress, especially when it works fine in After Effects 2019.

    I had…

  17. Don't Automatically Add "Folder" to a Consolidated Project Name

    When you save a consolidated project out of AE it creates a folder with the files and adds "Folder" to the name, which to me, seems pointless. Just make a folder with the project name and call it good. I don't want to send a folder to a client with the name "folder" in it because it'll make me look like a total idiot.

  18. Composition = Folder

    It would be great if I could expand a composition on the timeline like you can do it with folder in photoshop.

    This way I could view all layers and keyframes directly from a parent comp without having to switch between comps.

    Adobe, please add that feature! It would be a huuuuge time saver and workflow optimization.

  19. Scene Detect

    Scene detect or cut/edit detection would be very helpful for those of us who get final cut videos from an editor who cannot provide project files with all the separate clips (or EDLs).
