  2. Item and AVItem should exist as real classes in ExtendScript

    ExtendScript documentation says that CompItem and FootageItem are subclasses of AVItem (and AVItem, in turn, is a subclass of Item). The problem is neither Item nor AVItem are actually defined in ExtendScript. Running item instanceof AVItem throws an error because AVItem is undefined!

  3. Not having to close and open after effects to switch audio device/output

    This is something that could improve workflow a lot. When I switch between i.e. internal speakers and headphones after effects should be modern enough to get it. It really is inefficient and quite annoying to have to quit and start up if I want to change the audio output to show something to my colleagues and then do it again before I can continue working on it.

  5. Always render Null Objects with 0% Transparency

    I often use Null Objects within my compositions- and its very easy to forget to switch them off before you render- leaving white squares where they have been used in you render.

    So why not as an overall rule just always render them with 0% transparency? There doesnt seem to be any reason for Null objects to be rendered so it makes sense.

    (You can obviously set them to 0% in the composition- but it often actually helps for them to be visible whilst constructing your comps)

  7. Make a layer ALWAYS span the entire duration of a comp

    It'd be useful to be able to set a layer (e.g. a background solid, or a still image) to ALWAYS last the entire duration of a comp, so if I extend the duration of the comp, the layer will always last the entire duration of the comp. It could be activated by right-clicking the layer and choosing a menu option under the Time category (it'd fit right in there with Freeze on Last Frame).

  8. Add the ability to merge separate mask paths into one

    It would be wonderful to be able to take two incomplete/open paths/masks and join them into one--not in the "merge paths" way, but actually joining two paths. (This would be particularly helpful during roto when one thinks one is continuing a previous path but one has accidentally started a new path.)

  10. Puppet Tool needs a feature that gives you the option to create a custom mesh.

    For example, I'm currently animating a image where the eye is blinking. The deform feature for the Puppet tool is perfect for this, but I find that the auto mesh that it creates generates triangles that result in artifacts and are not ideal; the fix for this is just add more points. However I think it would be great to have a feature to draw your own edge loops. Say you can draw a few masks on the image for the the grid/loops, then have the tool generate a mesh based on those guides. Or say just draw one loop…

  11. PNG sequence encoding parity between AE and AME

    I like to be able to render while continuing to work. Most of the time I can render in AE, but when it comes to rendering image sequences (particularly .png sequences) After Effects does it better. Better in this case means smaller file sizes which are vital for squeezing more performance out of the interactive installations I work on.

  13. BUG: White dot/blob appears in 8bpc project

    I have encountered a weird bug. First, I thought it was a fault in the project, but today I created a new, blank one, added an empty comp and the white blob is back. It looks the same and its on the same position.
    Since its repeating in a brandnew project, this is likely a bug.

    Its only visible in 8bpc projects, all higher bpc, this blob is gone.
    I haven't re-installed AE yet, since its a workplace station and the IT has to do this and also reinstall all plugins. During a working day, thats almost impossible.

    Do you…

  14. Improve community communication

    Hi Adobe AE team

    Please talk to us. Share your thoughts and considerations. Don't be a black box. Victoria did well at the beginning, yet communication seems to be stalling again 😞

  15. Ponts of shape layer’s path move out of viewport

    Since the latest 2021 update (17.5 version) I have encountered a problem with points of shape layer’s path. When I try to move them, sometimes they teleport way far from the viewport. So I need to move them always with arrows which is annoying. It doesn’t seem to have problem with masks.

    My OS is Windows 10 (version 2004)

  20. How can we improve After Effects? By listening and responding to your users!

    At this point we haven't heard from your team in over a year. Not a single idea or suggestion has been acknowledged or marked for consideration in that time. Even requests that have been fulfilled have not been marked complete. Meanwhile on the Premiere uservoice page or pretty much EVERY OTHER MAJOR APP there are constant updates. Go look and compare! The lack of communication at this point is borderline disrespectful, how can you maintain this apathy towards your paying customers?
