  1. Pickwhipping Keyframes

    What if we could drag the pickwhip to a keyframe and get a reference to it in an expression? For example:

    thisComp.layer(1).transform.rotation.key(1);

  4. M1 Prores hardware acceleration

    Please support the M1 Pro/Max/Ultra prores decoders WITHOUT introducing the greenish colorshift. If this is technically not possible then don’t have the hardware setting on by default. You know it doesn’t work properly (because multiple people have reported it and, I presume, you have tested this functionality so WHY is it on by default? A colorshift is very much unacceptable…

  5. Copy paste videos from Premiere to After effects is broken once again

    I can only verrrrryyy sporadically after a fresh reboot copy/paste videos from my premiere timeline over to after effects.
    This is one of the last key advantages that Premiere has over Resolve, so it should better start working again asap.

    I'm on afx 22.4.1 and Premiere 22.0 and mac os 12.4.

  6. After Effects not exporting to Media Encoder when the project is located on OneDrive

    I have a whole project (Folders, Subfolders, etc) saved on OneDrive. When I try exporting the After Effects file with Media Encoder it fails to export & I can't even change setting (the error message “could not read from source. Please check the settings and try again.” appears). I´ve never had this problem before.
    I’m guessing it’s the combinations of After Effects and OneDrive. But I’m clueless as of why & how to fix this? Does anyone have an idea?

  7. Access to the data of Undo command via scripting

    Access to the data of Undo command via scripting.

    If developer have access to undo data, we could Undo an action by separate composition or something more precise.
    Many possibilities with that.
    Sometimes you do things in a precomp, change something in an other precomp but you made a midstake in the first precomp but you can't undo just your first change.

  9. *Critical* All Expressions get same error

    Every single Expressions I apply throws the error
    "add() needs exactly two arguments"

    This is making all work with expressions impossible in 22.4.0
    Will try downgrading...

    EDIT:
    Downgrading to 22.3 fixed this instantly.

  10. After Effects Needs a Node Editor (and other small changes that would make it the best software ever)

    After Effects could dominate the market if the developers simply did this:

    Rewrite the software so that you have the option to work with nodes in a dedicated window AND still use layers as default (Blender does this, so I know it's possible).
    The key to making After Effects the industry dominating software it ought to be, is by keeping the easy to use and super clean UI that it already has, while optimizing its functionality.
    For instance, if After Effects had it's standard "layer" timeline, but also gave users the ability to work 'under the hood' for more complex…

  12. Renderoutput is dependent if AE is used as a Rendernode or not

    I created Files with a Comp in the Renderqueue in a Watchfolder. Though the Rendered image Sequence is different if i use After Effects as a Render Node or not. If I use it as a Render Node the already saved comp in the Renderqueue renders disabled layers in that comp. If I use AE normally and Render it. The output is correct.

    ADOBE FIX YOUR PROGRAMS! I JUST LOST 2 WEEKS OF RENDERTIME!

  13. After effects crashing every 2 minutes

    This has never happened before and I've been using after effects for the last 3 years. Basically every time I launch after effects (CC 2018) and use it for whatever reason it'll suddenly crash in the middle. No error messages or anything just stops responding completely and I have to close it via task manager. The longest I could use was about 10 minutes. I've tried everything the internet has suggested (disable gpu, purge cache, delete temp folder, open via task manager, reinstalling, checking event viewer, update drivers) There was nothing about After Effects on event manager so I'm pretty…

  14. Revert or discard changes in Team Projects

    When using Team Projects, there is currently no way to revert or discard your own changes. If a user makes some mistakes, changes their mind, or doesn't want to "commit" unnecessary changes to the cloud, they don't have an option to reset to the last shared version. This makes the feature effectively unusable, the user would have to push their changes regardless of whether they are desired or not. What if the changes are project-breaking? There is also no way to view Team Project Versions or Autosaves for After Effects Team Projects, even though this feature exists for Premiere.

  15. BUG: AE 22.3 DNx Codecs Broken

    DNx codecs are broken when updating to AE 22.3, which affects usability with any high profile Avid projects. Any QTs exported with DNx codecs will no longer import into the Avid, and you also cannot re-import these exports into AE.
    The codecs work if you roll back to AE 22.2.1

  16. Reduce After Effects Pricing (grievances list) (it's 30 years old, visible depreciation in value and usefulness, AE needs replacing)

    it's in the title. it's mind boggling to me that the program still works, let alone can be in some ways considered stable, but let's face it:

    multi-threading use is spotty at best
    GPU usage remains under 10-30% on most GPU's
    many plugins aren't even 16 or 32 bit
    Export templates are no longer standard, can't export in several standards
    almost entirely uses RAM for viewport acceleration instead of optimization
    by default now uses 429 plugins instead of optimized, built in features
    mixed support for different GPU architectures (mostly older ones)
    CPU/RAM/GPU usage are all far higher per calculation than…

  17. key stroke

    Ignored keystrokes.
    When using After Effects some keystrokes seem to be ignored randomly. When entering a timecode for example, a lot of the times one of the numbers entered is just ignored. It's not a delay, it can be a number in the middle that's ignored. Even if I explicitly type deliberate and slow, making sure I press the keys correctly and firmly after effects randomly ignores a keystroke. Not always, but every other timecode (8 characters) I enter one random characters turns out missing. Also sometimes I have to press a shortcut (u, p, s, r, t, the usual)…

  19. AE 2022 V22.3.0 does not update layer in composition viewport when transform parameters are changed

    In the latest and greatest AE 2022 22.3.0, when I change a layer's Transform parameters, like adjusting rotation for example, the layer does not visually update per the change in view in the Composition viewer. This happens frequently and on a M1 Max MacBook Pro 16" with the latest macOS.
