  1. Volume Control for Render Finished Sound

    Can we please have a basic volume control or volume level option for the "Play Sound When Render Finishes" option? Even something as basic as "use low volume version" would be helpful, especially when working with headphones. Same thing with the goat sound effect when encountering that...

  2. AE 17.7.0 - Mask Feather Tool

    Mask Feather Tool works only on one frame. If I set it on one frame it disappears on next frame (no keyframes on mask feather). It seams that it is dependent on mask path keyframes what is just stupid. First I want to do masking/rotoscoping and after I finish with that I would like to set seather using Mask Feather Tool and keyframe it by mask feather not by mask path.

  3. Add color labels to two changed key frames

    Generally speaking, one layer and one attribute will add multiple animations of value changes

    However, it is difficult to locate the desired key frame position. The most important thing is that the layer label is not bound to the key frame position.
    Interactive method: select two key frames with changing values, add "key frame label", in the time window, a line will appear between the selected key frames, and the color of the line can be defined!

    If it conflicts with the color animation, it is recommended to add a color line, just to distinguish the color key frames.

  4. rotobrush 2 crashes w/ Linearize Working Space Checked

    Was experiencing crashes when using Rotobrush 2 - AE would instantly crash when clicking a rotobrush selection (green brush). Cleared prefs, purged cache, saved media and project to desktop...nothing worked - finally tried disabling Linear Working Space in project settings - FIXED. Rotobrush 2 does not seem to be stable in a Linear 1.0 working space.

  5. Change of "Default-Opacity" of Shape Layers

    I would much appreciate the possibility to change the default opacity of shape layers. I most of the time use shape layers with a 100% opacity and now i have to go deep in the settings to adjust it … it's much more work. Thank you.

  7. 3D Text Extrusion Preset Materials and Lighting Library

    FCP Motion has preset Materials and Lighting Libraries as standard. It would be amazing to be able to import 3D Text Extrusion Preset Materials and Lighting Libraries from wherever when rendering with the C4D engine in After effects. C4D and Photoshop files can supply these library presets. Choosing which material is connected to which side of the extrusion, then choosing which lighting scene fits with your text or vector scene.

  8. Time counter to count the time I have spent on a project

    I think this feature is useful in many levels; in business it will give insight on each project and the time it took while working, thus estimated deadline, and individuals such as freelancers will be able to determine the time each project requires so they can price their hour cost.

    The timer will pause while the project is open but there are no changes.
    This feature is not only for After Effects it may be implemented in most of adobe products including Premiere, Photoshop and Illustrator.

  9. Bug when using layer search bar

    Hi Adobe,

    After Effects keeps deleting multiple layers when I use the layer search bar to search for 'color' and cmd/ctrl+z won't bring them back so I have to close and reopen the program. Any help would be much appreciated!

  10. Adobe Splash screens - a visual horror show

    Remove all splash screen imagery

    Why does Adobe insist on incuding some of the worst imagery imaginable in their splash screens? As a 'pro' user being exposed to this tripe many times a day is incredibly annoying. Why in fact do we need any kind of image on the splash screen - just a simple logo as before was enough surely. We are all exposed to too much visual pollution these days as it is - having to see it in my work environment is infurating and distracting.

  11. There's no Industry standard video playback app. This isn't specifically an After Effects thing, but a general video issue.

    Hi
    I sometimes get clients who freak out because their video player doesn't show colours correctly. Some use VLC, some use QuickTime X Player, some use 'dropbox' on the browser, some use windows and some use Macs.

    It can be a nightmare when they say 'my colours don't look right (this is usually on QuickTime player, which is a bit rubbish). I can often spend a half-day, down a rabbit hole trying to work out why, and it's so frustrating!

    Now that Adobe is so very profitable with its cloud subscriptions, it's time they developed a free video playback app.…

  12. Losing the ability to manipulate the objects in the 3-d space

    Every so often when a scene in AE is 3-d tracked I lose the ability to manipulate the objects in the 3-d space. I click on the object in the scene, the item in the editing bay, and every other way to make the 3-d handles appear and nothing works. When this happens it means I have to start from scratch because I can no longer move the objects. In addition I can not make the 3-d trackers reappear in the scene, even if I change the size of the track points. This typically brings them back into the scene…

  13. Add xml import back into after effect

    Please can you add xml import back into after effects? Importing a whole PP project bloats AE projects with so much unneeded media it’s a total pain. Also removes the ability to quickly import grade from colourist and quickly set up projects and have the team start working.

  15. BUG - Internet connection speed may cause AE to lock up with INVALID MENU OPERATION msg

    BUG - Internet connection speed may cause AE to lock up with INVALID MENU OPERATION msg.

    Title says it all, can reproduced 100% of the time by lowering my internet connection speed (i.e. downloads and/or uploads). This is a critical productivity issue that has started occurring today 2021-02-23 and reproduced on both latest versions of AE (had it occur before and after updating the application).

  16. We want ray trace back! why to take it without not even saying a word.

    I know you guys are looking to improve the software and make it better, faster and up today but eliminating components such as ray trace is not a good move nor a good decition just because you let MAXON 4D to do just half of what we were able to do with ray trace. i dont think that removing ray trace is big of improvement but rather a move backwards forcing us to use tools that can do just half the work done as we previously had it. there is a big comunity out there expecting this option is available…

  17. More love for 360/VR in After Effects

    since 2018, Ae has not been updated in relation to VR/360 workflows. Ae has limited VR effects and the VR Comp Editor workflow which is also very limited and delicate script and expression heavy process.

    Ae should have a spherical camera, mono and stereo. this would obsolete the stiching workflow of VR Comp Editor and it's limitations. 3d plugins like trapcode or stardust are very breakable, also all the 2d effects won't work properly without the use of 3rd party tools and even then it's very limited.

    these new technologies should not be left behind, there are great things motion…

  18. Search/filter in Effect Controls

    Please add a search/filter bar to the Effect Controls panel to make finding parameters quicker and easier. Twirling down endless nested categories many plugins have is tiresome, slow and unnecessary.
