  1. Add Motion Source choice to Mask Tracker

    I would like the Mask Tracking to work on a Solid Layer, while looking to a video layer.

  2. LIVE LINK (!) seemless integration of autodesk 3DSMAX into after effects

    as many of us in VFX have been working with the combination 3dsMAX - after effects , to create compositing / animation / camera / modelling it is absolutely obliged to have a fast integration like maxxon cinema 4D connection in after effects. the compositors link is NOT providing a real fluid workflow .
    els one has to switch finally to theFoundry nuke / autodesk 3dsmax. Yet after effects is a very fast solution . to keep this we'd like to have a simillar link , without scaling / axis issues , between 3dsMAX and after effects .")

  4. Stabilization around a point or shape for roto or tracking

    Hi Adobe !

    It would be great to have an option allowing to stabilize the viewport around a point / shape / mask / layer. This would be a huge help for rotoscoping work, or for manually correcting bad 2D or 3D tracking.

    This option is available in Mocha, but this would be great to have something similar directly in AE ;)

    Thanks, and please excuse me if I made some english mistakes, I'm French and dumb ^^

  5. What the h.. The rotoscoop tool is HUGLY buggy

    The rotoschoping tool is aweful
    It disapears, the freezing doesn't actually freeze the selection and the mask remaps
    Aweful, a waste of time. I will look for an other tool I can't believe I pay for this

  6. Caustics Effect resolution independent and 32 bit

    It would be better if the caustics effect was resolution independent. As it is now it produces different result if you set resolution to half insted of full in the viewport. Which make it more difficult to work with.
    Also it would be nice if it could be updated to work in 16 and 32 bit. (same request for all effects please)

  8. Single-color option for Tint effect

    I often just want to add a simple color tint to an object (eg make something a little blue). This seems like a very basic need to me.

    The 'Fill' effect is no good as you can't change the opacity.

    The 'Tint' effect requires two colors, meaning you can't see a preview while you pick a color, as you need to copy and paste your color into two boxes.

    Sure, there are workarounds, like using a solid. But isn't this kind of thing precisely what effects are made for? If we have an adjustment layer containing various effects, why shouldn't…

  9. Introduce Locked But Editable Compositions

    I do a lot of wire and rig removal work, and am constantly battling moving a spline point and finding the entire composition is being moved. This happens while doing other work, as well.

    My concept would be a "locked but editable" feature, where the layer is locked in position, but can still be worked on.

  11. Bug Report: Resizing the composition causes the 3D layer to shift.

    If you resize the composition using the "Crop Comp to Region of Interest" feature in version 17.5.1, there will be a difference in the display between 2D and 3D layers with the same X and Y numbers.
    It didn't happen in versions prior to 17.1.4.

    The following reproduction procedure
    1, Creating a composition
    2, Create a new layer
    3, Resize the composition using "Crop Comp to Region of Interest"
    4, Check the 3D layer.

    Other than "Crop Comp to Region of Interest", the same phenomenon occurs when resizing with "Composition Settings / Advanced / Anchor" selected other than the center. …

  12. Bug - Wrong speed when playing the audio file

    I am new to Adobe Effects and am currently testing the application.

    I have created a new composition and added an audio file. When I play the composition. the music plays sometimes normal, sometimes too slow.

    I can't imagine that it is a feature. Especially since there was no notification or similar. In any case, this does not work as expected... In any other video editing program there is no problem playing the file.

  13. After Effects Minimax

    Photoshop has Minimum and Maximum and the option to preserve squareness or roundness.
    Do the same in After effects' Minimax, add an option to preserve roundness, since by default it preserves squareness.

  14. Hi, just seems the layer sequencer isn't working

    See attached photoshop file, I took screenshots and pasted them in with a walkthrough of what I''m doing on.

    I've been a tester on a few softwares so just thought give a brief run down. Wasn't end of world, just had to do a lot of layer duplication.

  15. Crashes when EXRs don't match comp size and have any transform settings

    Basically, EXRs must be precomped to apply any sort of transform to then. Otherwise I get a repeatable crash.

  16. Effects to camera and lights

    I want be able to add effects like Expression Controls to Cameras & Lights. For example to add a checkbox to switch Dof on-off more easily, from the effects window. So you don't need to create an extra nulllayer that holds the controlls.

    THANKS

  17. A quick color matching function in Lumetri

    After Effects has no quick color matching function for different clips.
    Please integrate a color matching function in Lumetri like you did in Premiere Pro.

  18. Essential graphics should have a function to replace an image inside the control comp.

    I'm working on a large ongoing project that requires a lot of title animations with different text and images. Essential Graphics has helped but could be improved vastly if there was some sort of "placeholder" layer inside a composition that could be used to swap or select different images inside of essential graphics.

    Thank you!

  19. Bug Report: Camera Lens Blur "Repeat Edge Pixels" issue

    Camera Lens Blur's "Repeat Edge Pixels" feature doesn't behave as expected along the left edge at small (≤.5 pixel) values. The attached project file shows this behavior, from frame 11 to 30. Above .5 pixels, the feature behaves as expected.

    Adjusting with the Rotation and Aspect Ratio values can change the threshold at which this behavior disappears, but doesn't fix the issue.

    Tested on an updated AE2020 (17.1.4, build 37), Win10 x64. Occurs at all bit depths and compositing modes I could think to try.

    The "Attach a File" thing's being weird, so you can download the file here:

  20. AI-Generated Depth Maps

    There are many experimental and research projects that have attempted to create a depth maps from single non-stereoscopic 2D images. Many of these attempts have had greats results, and there are ways to get this effect for yourself if you scower the internet and piece together multiple free and open-source applications, scripts, and machine learning databases. But given that apps like Instagram already do a basic version of this for video in realtime, it's not unrealistic to apply the same effect to videos, especially as computers get faster and the research/resource pool grows in the next couple years. I know…
