  9. Add blending modes to Fill Effect

    Always wondered why the effect lacks those. (and why the Opacitiy parameter of the effect affects the Opacity of the layer)

  10. "Track Matte" feature for the "Set Matte" Effect.

    CC composite is great for compositing its own layer over itself again, the track mattes is good for tracking an alpha/luma of a layer above itself.
    However, many times I'd like to composite, say an icon, over a circle shape - then animate each one independently (perhaps the circle scales up and the icon slides down to the centre of the circle), then, have the icon track the circles alpha channel so you only ever see the icon inside the circle.
    Set matte doesnt often work as you are manipulating transform properties, and set matte seems to only work when…

  11. Upgrade Roughen Edges effect.

    More in-depth, customizable roughen edges effect. Ability to apply effect to shape layers to get edges like Photoshop brushes. Maybe even use the stamp of a Photoshop brush to determine the texture and variation of the edge. Edge example from Photoshop attached.

  12. Allow users to change/override order of operations

    AE does its operations in a specific order - eg: first it looks at transforms, then masks, then effects, etc. (I can't recall the exact order and couldn't find it online).

    Sometimes you need to extensively precomp or re-think how you're building something in order for it to work properly. This can be a huge pain and can cause a bunch of extra work.

    Instead of that, could there be an effect that you could apply to a layer that would allow you to re-order those operations? Call it "Re-Order Render Operations" or something.

  13. Allow Set Matte effect to see/respect transforms

    If I want to use a layer as a matte using Set Matte, AE won't recognize any transforms (position, scale, etc) that I've done to it within the comp. It will only see them if I precomp the layer, adding more complexity to the file, and causing other issues.

    Instead of just the option to use Source, Masks, Effects & Masks, can you add transforms? Maybe instead of the pop-up selector, you could have checkboxes, so the user could choose what combination of modifiers they want to use.

  14. Effect similar to CC Composite, but instead takes a result from further up the effects chain

    I'd like to propose an effect that can take a result from further up the effects chain and recomposite it back over the final result. Similar to how CC Composite can put the original image back over the final result.

    Even if behind the scenes this means rendering the same thing twice, it would be convenient to have this functionality on a single layer. I often find myself making copies of a layer and using the Calculations effect to blend layers together, or create more intricate mattes.

    It could have controls like transfer mode, opacity, preserve transparency, etc. Maybe similar…

  15. After Effects Split compositon window when working in 3d layers and cameras

    As novas formas de dividir a "compostion window" para trabalhar com 3d são horríveis.

    Tela dividida em 2 na vertical.
    A maior parte do trabalho ainda é com resoluções horizontais, e dividir a tela na vertical não ajuda. O ideal é voltar com a opção de dividir a tela em 2 na horizontal.

    tela dividia em 4
    Eu particularmente gosto muito mais de dividir a tela em 1 grande (a visão da câmera resultado final) e 3 pequenas para me ajudar a posicionar elementos.
    4 telas do mesmo tamanho são desnecessárias e acabam prejudicando a ver a imagem principal, que…

  16. A text box feature that automatically provides a matching background box for texts

    idea: when I type a bit of text I can select the «text box» option and select the colour, corner radius, extension, etc. The box should adapt to the text.

  17. 32bpc Mesh Warp and other distortion effects

    We need to use the simple distortion effects like Mesh Warp, Liquify, etc without clamping colors to properly work in advanced compositing. It's impossible now to work in ACES for example and do a simple warp to correct something without clamping all the values...

  18. Access via expression to any pixel coordinates on a distorted layer (with bezier, mesh warp, bend it, etc...)

    Hello !

    For distortion effects, I would like to get access via expression to any pixel coordinates of a layer after the distortion effect is applied. (Not only the handles of bezier warp).

    For example : on an animated character each limb is on a different layer. If I distort the torso, I would like the shoulders of the arms (which are on different layers) to follow the distortion of the torso. It may be possible via the puppet tool, but the distortion is not as clean as the bezier or mesh warp.

    But maybe it is not possible via…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
