  2. Reverse Keyframes button

    How about a button to reverse selected keyframes to create a reverse of your animation

  3. Make Composition-/Layer-Lentgh editable via script or Essential Graphics

    Would be great to get control over layer or composition length via expressions like a slider. Maybe let us set start- and end-points so that if you change the time-length in Essential-Graphics we could shorten the composition in Premiere as well and some other use cases.

  5. 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!

  6. shape layer(シェイプレイヤー)

    I'm glad if I can set the initial settings of the shape layer myself. (line width, line combination, etc.)

    シェイプレイヤーの初期設定(線幅、線の結合など)を自分で設定できると嬉しいです

  7. Expand motion sketch capabilities by including recording on shape and mask paths

    Expand "motion sketch" capabilities by including cursor recording on shape and mask paths. This case we can animate a shape/mask point just by dragging our cursor.

  9. Feather Trim Paths

    Adding a "feather" option to the trim path effect. It seems like there is no simple way to achieve this effect that a lot of people are struggling to create.

    Having the option to animate lines with a feathered trail would be a tremendous asset to everyone, instead of having to resort to complicated workarounds.

    Thank you.

  11. Speed graph editor: 'View speed curves as absolute values' option

    In the speed graph editor: Can we get a 'View velocities as absolute values' option please. This way increasing the speed on multiple keys does exactly that, regardless of the negative or positive value of the key speed.

    Ie, for 2 shapes moving left and right, their X position speed curves are negative (for left) and positive (for right).

  12. Masks should have a keyframeable transforms

    Currently you have to animate the mask "Path" in order to achieve any translation. However when doing roto/tracking it would be extremely handy to be able to separately keyframe translation from the mask path. For example when applying tracking data to a mask you could track just the position and keyframe the mask path separately. Similarly when using the "mask tracker" the results are virtually unusable for any detailed roto work because you end up with a keyframe on every frame, therefore any manual edits cause popping in the animation. With the addition of position, rotation and scale it would…

  13. Warn the user if looping frames are not lined up correctly...

    I create a lot of looping animations. Loops only work if the last frame is lined up perfectly with the first frame so that it can play through seamlessly. Could you provide a warning prior to rendering to let the user know if the loops are not lined up? Thanks.

  15. Frame by Frame in AE!

    I was thinking about making frame by frame on AE, I tried using Paint and Stick, but at work it was quite slow, lag => I didn't like it! I have thought of one way to work both software at the same time as AE and Photoshop, but it came up with one thing: I have a 3-layer psd file, import into AE into each layer, then, I create 1 4th layer in PTS, paint on it and save, but in AE do not create that 4th layer! I know this is impossible! But do you think there is a…

  17. [BUG] Property or method names 'style' in Class 'TextProperty' is missing

    Please make Javascript the default expression engine. Otherwise the new expression abilities that came out with AE 2020 are unavailable.

    If any of you are trying to access the new 2020 text expression items, make sure to go to your project settings -> expressions -> Javascript

  19. After Effects doesn't properly support SWF import from Adobe Animate

    This would be a great feature but it doesn't work very well! Advanced layers don't work properly, some types of easing don't display correctly, and nested/masked layers don't display correctly (see attached screenshot).

    Please implement it properly!

  20. Disable different axises for 3d rotation / rotate one axis only

    For animation comps with cameras obviously my layers need to be 3d, which makes rotation in the composition window annoying. When I'm animating a character in 2d it's quick and easy to press W and rotate in the comp view, but if the layer is 3d it's tricky to get the right point to rotate in 3d space. In fact, I NEVER do transformations on 3d layers in the comp window because it's an unusable mess - I always dial in the numerical numbers, which is much slower.

    I would love to be able to easily rotate just one axis…
