  1. Give us the ability to export .mogrt files for older versions of Premiere.

    It would be great to be able to create motion graphics files for older versions of Premiere.

  2. Make Warp stabilizer 2D points exportable as nulls or solids, like in 3D Camera Tracker

    Make Warp stabilizer 2D points exportable as nulls or solids, like in 3D Camera Tracker. Make AE warp stabilizer become a planar tracker.

  4. Maximize window through menu on Mac

    Many apps on OSX have a menu option to zoom/maximize the window. Same function as the green + button, but can be accessed via shortcut.

  5. Make the user interface scaleable on Mac - WHY HAVEN'T YOU FIXED THIS?????

    Christ, why do I have to mess up the interface on my Mac just to be able to read the interface in AE? How about this? Just make the **** font bigger NOW. Really that hard?

  6. Addition of Extrusion Depth and Bevel Depth to footage layers

    It's well known from https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/extruding-text-shapes.html that footage layers, solids, and compositions cannot be beveled or extruded. Personally, I don't understand how this isn't currently possible. Maybe I'm just misunderstanding something, but I'm not sure. Regardless, it would be nice to have this feature added for footage layers, as FXhome's Ignite Pro effects are already capable of doing this.

  7. Centralized plugins and scripts folder

    Just select the folder where AE should load the plugins and scripts from.
    Like it is in Cinema 4D R21 or like it is handled with extensions.

  8. RAM preview turns black after a while

    After a while, the composition window just turns black and shows no graphics. The borders and masks are shown though, but no visuals. And when pressing spacebar to RAM preview, it doesn't play. Restart helps, but the issue keeps returning so I need to restart all the time. Happens on larger project files.

  9. Hi can we have a 'Go Shout at Adobe' button built into the UI?

    I posted this over at the Community forum and somebody suggested i post here so here goes:

    It just feels like EVERY TIME i have a deadline and normally right at the end of the project when it comes the time to render/export, After Effects or Media Encoder finds some new and unique way to give me problems..

    If it's not some bizarre installation or authorisation issue, it's AddToMediaEncoder queue doing nothing. Or it launches MediaEncoder and doesn't add to queue. Or it complains DynamicLink isn't working. Or even adding the composition to the queue manually via MediaEncoder looks like…

  10. Some sort of shape hit system (similar to adobe animate) that can dictate the interpolation of a mask or shape path!

    When doing character animation, you frequently have to interpolate between two shapes. Like arm shapes or face shapes, these shapes are typically pre designed by artist and when you try to interpolate between two separate paths you end up with a jumbled mess as the keys try to match the path direction and first path point; it typically results in needing to morph the pre existing path into the shape of the new one and even then you still have to hope the program determines the right placement. So it would be nice to have more control!

  11. Make FX Console a native AE function

    Video Copilot's FX console is useful, but it seems to break with every major AE update, and support is sporadic. Make something like it that can be stable and reliable!

  12. Allow AE Cache and Database to be stored on external media

    In the new and the classic Mac Pro the fastest drive possible is a NVME SSD or a RAID of multiple SSDs that is connected via a PCI card such as the "Sonnet M.2 4x4 PCIe Card" or the equivalent from HighPoint.
    The problem is that these volumes get recognized as external, removable drives and After Effects will not except them as cache location.
    So it's nonsense to restrict the drive selection. Please remove that function and let the user choose. If someone stores his cache on a slow thumb drive it's his own fault.

  13. Label Color Shape Layer from Vector

    Please make it so that when I Create Shapes from Vector Layer the new Shape layer retains the Label Color of the source / original Vector layer. Right now it gets (re)set to the default label color. Thank you.

  14. Shift Add Transform Property

    I would love it if when I press SHIFT (ANYTHING) to a nothing-exposed layer, the selection I choose (Effects, Position, Rotation, etc..) is twirled down. Currently the only way to do this is to REMOVE the SHIFT modifier and just press E, or T, or P, or R, etc... Muscle memory has me always thinking SHIFT should ADD (make visible) the value I'm interested in

    If I select a layer that has (for example) Position twirled down or expanded, and then press SHIFT 'R' ... Rotation is added to the twirled down/explanded list of Transforms. SHIFT 'T' to this list…

  15. Automatically Expand Value Twirly Thing for Added Shape Functions

    If I add Offset Paths or any other Shapes functions such as Fill, Stroke, Merge Paths, etc... please default to opening up and twirling down the value. Using Offset Paths as an example, "10" is rarely the value I want, so I have to change it. But to change it requires twirling down the triangle to expose the amount value. And because "10" is a default value, rapidly typing "UU" does NOT automatically expand added shape functions - it's only once I've changed the default value to something else that "UU" twirls this amount value down, making it easier to…

  17. Content-Aware Fill Tool algorithms (Frame range vs. one frame)

    When i am using Content-Aware Fill Tool in frame range (more than 1 frame) it is not accurate enough. But when i am manually pushing " Generete Fill layer" button frame by frame it does a great job. Why frame by frame fill generating does better results than automatic mode in frame range?

  18. All projects with Key Cleaner crash upon opening

    The latest 17.0.2 did NOT correct this. 17.0.0 thru 17.0.2 does this on all my AE projects with Key Cleaner (it might be when it is used in conjunction with Advanced Spill Suppressor, but I'm not sure). I had to downsave all my AE projects to the latest ver. 16 in order to continue working. Am I the only user this is happening to?

  20. Fix the 'scroll through fonts with arrows' function for 2020 Please!!!

    I know this has been implemented and seems to be an on again off again availability. It is really time consuming having to open Photoshop just to see what a different font looks like on the fly.
    Please fix!
