  1. Occasional 1 pixel edge bleed bug

    I've recently noticed a bug in AE. Occasionally there will be a 1-2 pixel edge bleed despite everything being properly sized and positioned and extending to or, in the case of the first screenshot, beyond the edge of frame. In case of the first screenshot, the bleed does go away when I continually rasterize the layer, but that's not always a workable solution. That one is an AI layer, natively sized to the comp and in its original position, so I shouldn't need to continually rasterize to have a clean edge to the frame. The second screenshot shows a white…

  3. AE render files have wrong timestamp

    When I render out of After Effects (.mov file in attached screenshot), it shows a timestamp of one day in the future. When I render out of Media Encoder (the mp4 file in the attached screenshot), it shows the correct timestamp. I can reproduce this error everytime.

    My computer's date and time settings are correct, in the right timezone, and synced to update automatically.

  4. Custom ZOOM factor.

    Custom ZOOM factor.
    Canvas that is too large to use 'fit' is also too small to see at 50% or 100%.

  5. After Effects 2020 on Mac does not work at all with Arri Alexa Footage

    After Effects 2020 on Mac does not work with Arri Alexa footage that when imported into Premiere has the AMIRA LUT automatically added. You can see my first exampled here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27MpmJfKHqg and my second example from Arri's example footage here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9aRnCeu7PE The footage drops out, goes blue, and goes upside down becoming completely useless.

    The only way to get the footage to work is to recompress it all and the reconnect, but we are talking a huge amount of ProRES 4444 footage that I really don't want to recompress, especially when it works fine in After Effects 2019.

    I had…

  6. Hide CMap CIDFont & Font Folders

    I'm running Windows 10 and the latest version of After Effects. I like to keep my project folder uncluttered and each time I save a new project, AE is adding these three folders in my project folder. It seems like something your developers could easily hide inside another less visible folder. Media encoder also saves a fresh copy of the project to this folder with every export, Isn't this something that could be hidden away as well?

  7. Color overlay based on color value in clipboard

    When using a Color Overlay Layer Effect, it would be good if it checked the computer's clipboard for a Color value.
    It's very very rare that I want the default red value. I will normally get a color hex value from Illustrator and paste that in.
    If AE was able to interrogate the computer's clipboard for a color value and use it, that would be a nice improvement.

  9. Fix this After Effects 2020 error: 'Can't import as a sequence. Found no matches for the selected file name.'

    I get this error: 'Can't import as a sequence. Found no matches for the selected file name.' when importing an image sequence in to After Effects 2020 (Version 17.0.4 (Build59)). It works just fine when importing the very same image sequence in the previous version of After Effects (Version 16.1.3 (Build 5)) ... This means I can't use the latest version of After Effects (2020), since I work with image sequences all the time. Am I the only one who has encountered this problem? Is there a solution or workaround? Is there an update coming that will fix this problem?

  10. png naming mismatch AE and AME

    Hi there, operating on CC2019 and I have no interest in responses that say move to a newer version.

    Rendering a PNG sequence out of AE writes PNG files name format differently to Media Encoder, so if I need to replace PNG frames for a revision and use AE to directly render the replacement frames the naming conventions don't match up - this is an incredible oversight - why would you possibly have AE and Media Encoder write PNG names differently?!?!

    Similarly I tried to write my replacement frames in with Media Encoder, and it started to number my frames…

  11. CC Libraries Downloads project setting options that match Premiere Pro's project setting options

    It would be great if After Effects provided the same project setting options for setting where CC Libraries Downloads are stored as Premiere Pro does. Currently, the downloads go to the sync folder specified in Creative Cloud Desktop. Ideally, the user could choose Same as Project, Downloads or Custom in After Effects in the same way that they can in Premiere Pro.

  12. When selecting multiple effects in Effect Controls panel, cannot move position/order of more than one effect at a time

    When in the Effect Controls panel you can select multiple effects, but if you try and move the selected effects and change the layer order, only one effect will move. If you twirl down the effects of a layer in the timeline, you can successfully move multiple selected effects, but this no longer works in the Effect Controls panel.

  13. Ability to read and use the "curve length" of a "Path", through expressions

    It would be great if we could use a ("read only") path object's new method that would output the curve length (or arc length) in expressions ;
    We could use this to compute precise arc lenghts, for example to estimate a "wheel" rotation along a path !

    Hi Feature request please. We need some way of dropping files from the desktop into After Effects or Photoshop etc. without having to open a file browser or switch between windows, if there was a key command that could bring up items on the desktop or any other location we could quickly get access to a floating window to cycle through our chosen destination. Sometimes (most of the time) I have 3 or 4 programs open and 2 web browsers and lots of stuff going on and it is not quick to get to the desktop. Also it takes times…

  15. Anchor Point

    It would be nice to have something like in the Illustrator/Transform palette to set the anchor point easily with a mouse click, without changing the position of the object.

  16. Proper colour palettes

    Give us proper colour palettes like InDesign. If you've used a colour then it just shows up automatically in your palette window. Re-use it wherever and if you change it in there it updates colours project wide. Or group them and change multiple colours together. Would be so useful for iteration and amendments.

  17. BUG: Master Properties won't affect audio time remapping

    When time remapping is controlled by a parameter passed with a master propery, video works fine, but audio time remapping is disregarded.
    The demo project is attached. There's generated audio which is passed along with animation into the TEST comp both directly and with intermediate time remapped precomp. You can see that the audios are always identical although changing the "time shift" master property does shift the animation.

  18. Can we have Text Underline option in after effects.

    Can we have Text Underline option in after effects. As we have to add line manually to underline particular text and it's time consuming. All the other Adobe software have that feature except AE.

  20. Make Guide layers allow to use "Preserve Transparency"

    Make Guide layers allow to use "Preserve Transparency"

    When using "Keep Transparency", the effect becomes invalid if there is a video or image on the bottom layer. If you use a guide layer, please enable "Keep transparent"

    「透明性を維持する」を使用する場合に一番下のレイヤーにビデオや画像などがあると効果が無効になる。ガイドレイヤーにした場合は「透明性を維持する」を有効にして欲しい
