  1. have auto save save more frequently

    editing takes a long time. when the program crashes, all progress is lost unless previously autosaved or saved. with more frequent autosave, less progress will be lost if the program crashes.

  2. Bug - When master property is linked to json data by expression, it does not render properly with aerender

    When a master properties value is linked to a json data file in the comp and the comp is rendered with aerender, the value of the master property in the rendered file is reverted to it's unaltered value, ie. does not reflect the value of the data

    This does work correctly when rendering normally, only seems to be when rendering with aerender

  6. Tell users they're also installing Maxon Cinema 4D

    Let me know that AE will install Maxon Cinema 4D. I saw it installed, and had no idea why: had to Google the answer.

  7. Flaws in adding a Lumetri LUT

    When I have a project that uses Lumetri's LUTs, when I add a new LUT to the Creative and Technical folders, the LUT used in the project is changed.

    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects 2020\Support Files\Lumetri\LUTs

    In other words, it seems to be remembered by the number from the top, not by the name of the LUT.
    Because of this phenomenon, it is not possible to introduce new LUTs. All of my previous projects change color.
    We need an improvement as soon as possible.

  8. Add a "Select Forward" feature

    so we can select all layers to the right of the time indicator/cursor. It's a hassle to have to manually select every layer when I want to make a change that is in the middle of the video.

  9. Can't select ColorProfile from importet ProRes Files

    In the newest AfterEffects Version (17.1.2) you cannot change the ColorProfile of an imported ProRes4444 File, resulting in a unwanted color shift. ( I am using ProRes4444 Renderings as Prerender-Files and always changed the Profile from Rec709 to sRGB) I am in general working in a linearized sRGB worflow.

  10. Compound layer

    Would be nice to have a Layer that can hold multiple layers within it. Similar to the concept of track in Premiere. A track can have a number of clips in it.

  11. Bug Report: AE 17.1.1 - Preference files could not be opened for writing

    After Effects constantly presents error ( 3 :: 0 ) since the update. I have deleted the pref files manually, reinstalled After Effects, tried checking all folder preferences, even moved to different PC and the same issue started when I installed the latest version. This is driving me crazy, all the preferences (.txt) files constantly being reset. *Both PC's are Windows 10, higher spec and up to date.

  12. Launching Lightroom resets shared media cache location for Pr, Ae, Au and Me

    Hi,
    By simply launching the latest Lightroom Classic (9.3), it will set the shared media caches locations for Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition and Media Encoder to the default Lightroom video cache location.

    /Users/{USERNAME}/Library/Caches/Adobe/Lightroom/Video

    Even though Lightroom's own media cache location might be custom set to something else.

    Running the latest app versions available on MacOS Catalina 10.15.5

    Does this also mean that the rather small cache size limitations usually set in lightroom now apply to the video editing apps shared cache too? Will Lightroom also delete cache files from Pr, Ae, Au, Me ?

    This bug has been reported…

    While i am testing result with OCIO ACES (workspace None, no signs on linear and blend gamma 1.0) i figured that some blend modes such as screen provides similar results but highlight is corrupted. I hope you add built-in support of OCIO

  16. CC Library assets colours and swatch colours are incorrect in After Effects (only)

    1 - Using the eyedropper tool on a CC Libraries swatch gives you incorrect colour values

    2 - When dragging in RGB assets from CC LIbraries (for example some Illustrator files), the colours of these assets are incorrect, even if you use the exact same colour space as the source file

  18. 3d Text Layer is Soft vs 2D Text

    I'm noticing a discrepancy between the sharpness of 2D text layers vs 3D text layers. It's subtle, but noticeable. If I toggle on/off the 3D checkbox, I can see it switch from sharp in 2D to a little softer in 3D. No camera in the comp. No motion blur or any effects. I've attached a project file where I'm seeing the problem.

  19. Synchronize Time of All Related Items

    When working with two views on different precomp with time-remap the only way to sync the picture is to uncheck "Synchronize Time of All Related Items", I propose to have a smarter solution that can help sync between comps view.

  20. New way to think about After Effects

    I think of After Effects as a platform and not a product. It has a nice baseline of features and capabilities, but it's a shell for developers to build it into something for them. It has a plethora of plugins and extensions. And using the language of the web, Javascript, make scripting much more accessible than other packages.

    Thinking of AE as a platform means the focus would be on creating a solid, stable, performant foundation. Maybe even creating more powerful development and scripting tools.
