  1. Use Illustrator's algorithm to distribute Stroke Dashes in Shape Layers

    Illustrator lets the user choose between exact sizes for Dashes and Gaps, or approximate those to distribute Dashes evenly and create nice even corners. See screengrabs. The square left is without correction enabled, the right one is after enabling the corner correction.

    That would be a great addition to Ae to make the Dashed Stroke more usefull.

  2. Allow fractal noise evolution to go beyond 91x

    Such an infuriating bug. First, this wheel should be able to go beyond 91x without the evolution just resetting to an arbitrary point.

    IF we really can’t have a wheel go higher than that (doubtful… we have put multiple robots in space), then WHY ALLOW IT TO BE SET HIGHER and waste 8 hours of precious render time instead of just not letting me do that in the first place???

  3. URGENT BUG - Effects on 3D shape layers don't show at all - 2020 17.0.2

    This is a crucial bug that needs to be fixed IMMEDIATELY!

    Any shape layer that's 3D doesn't show any effects. If 3D is disabled on the layer, the effects show.

    This is a crippling bug introduced in the latest update and it needs to be fixed ASAP!!!!

  4. Keymix Plugin à la Nuke

    Essential keying workflow tool. Would be awesome to have that without jumping through sub-comp hoops:

  5. 3D Camera projection on primitive objects for Matte-Paintings

    Would be great to have the possibility to add 3D objects like deformed layers to project pictures or images onto it - for example to create a cool looking 3D mountain matte-painting or to project objects on primitives. Some more 3D features overall would be cool.

  7. 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?

  8. Please give options to change missing font in template project!!!

    I came across a .aet project that has a missing font, and I just can't get the text to change font in the comp, it resizes as if it was changing but the font remain the same no matter what...

    After consulting with Adobe technical support, they responded that there is no such a function to change missing font. I sincerely hope in future version they include this option! Thank you!

  9. BUG: CC Repetile gives empty pixels gap when applied to an adjustment layer

    When applied to an adjustment layer CC RepeTile generates 2 empty extra pixels between the tiles. This is a bug! The problem is present in both AE 2019 and 2020 versions. When applied directly to the footage it seems to work fine.

  10. Please fix radial wipe transition!

    Radial wipe only works properly if it's a proper circle. I wanted to create a narrow oval to circle some text, but it won't work because of the narrower shape. The wipe goes both clockwise and counterclockwise when it should only go the one way.

  11. Robobrush addition/subtraction highlighting

    After making stokes with the robobrush, the preview goes black for a moment and then when it reappears, it shows the results of the new foreground segementation. Sometimes when zoomed into a specific region the strokes made improve the segemtation boundary in that region. However, when zooming out, often I notice that the strokes also had an effect on the segementation in regions far away from where I made the new strokes. It would be really handy if there were a thumbnail somewhere that colour codes pixels that have been added and removed from the foregorund as a result of…

  12. rotoscoping bug

    Ich habe (leider nicht freiwillig) eine Möglichkeit gefunden, die After Effects Projektdatei komplett zu zerstören:
    Ich habe einen HD Footage 1920/1080 23,98 Frames/Sekunde über sich selbst gelegt und auf dem oberen das Roto-Pinsel-Werkzeug angewendet und die Datei gespeichert.
    Sobald ich die Datei danach geöffnet habe, bekomme ich folgende Meldung:
    "After Effects Fehler: Fehlende Daten in Datei. ( 33 $ 4)".
    Dieser Fehler ist beliebig oft reproduzierbar, an verschiedenen Computern.

    Version 17.0.1

  13. bug. classic color dodge transparency

    Bug, When applying classic color dodge to a solid and applying it over a .mov on another layer, when fading out the transparency of the solid it creates a strange dither bit reduction until the fade ends, then jumps to 0% transparency. Ive tried it outputting to HAP and H264 and only happens when outputting to HAP

  15. Cryptomatte not working in 17.0.1

    Everytime I do compositing with cryptomatte (using it as a luma matte for an asset) I have this error (see picture) and my after effects crash.
    Thanks if you can solve it.

  16. BUG: Pickwhip in expression editor

    When Pickwipping a slider inside and expression with brackets, the auto expression will miss the closed bracket because of the outside brackets. This means you need to add another bracket on the end which is fine, but some people may not see it get missed until an error spits out.

  17. Add Grain in 32bit

    Please move this to the top of priorities.
    Since we're now all moving towards ACES which requires working in 32bit, not having a grain effect that works in 32bit makes most of the compositing work almost impossible to do. It's hard to think of an effect that doesn't require grain matching with the background plate, and now every time we apply the add grain effect all, overbright values get clamped, so we CAN'T use the effect on any new production :/

  18. Gaussain Blur in 32bit mode bug

    Gaussian Blur does not work properly in 32 bits mode.
    Whenever I blur a 32bit layer, overbright objects get a dark halo as in darker than surrounding background. After measuring, these halos actually have negative color values!!! Fast Blur does not have this problem, please fix it fast :/
