  1. Plug-In Compatibility After Updates

    Every time Adobe updates its software, I have to completely uninstall and reinstall all of my plug-ins (18 Plug-Ins). This is an absolute nightmare and a gross waste of time. This time around, there was no folder created labelled "Adobe After Effects CC 2020" when the update was completed. The Plug-In Licenses need to be in a certain folder that doesn't even seem to exist after the update. It retained the "Adobe After Effects CC 2019." Why? Why, is this so difficult to fix?

  2. Scripting in any language

    Englisch scripts don't work in an german AfterEffects for example because effect names are used instead of internal IDs or something equally. Could the script not be automatically transferred or internal converted to work in any language?

  3. About removing the Pro Import plug-in on MacOS

    Sorry about the ranting, but this made me very disappointed to Adobe again:

    So, Adobe and Mac combination is not for pro users?

    First Adobe disabled exporting Prores XQ on Mac, now latest update (17.0.4.) disables Pro Import plugin, making importing AAF, OMF, FCP XML impossible - even I don't use macOS Catalina!
    In Orwellian way, this is listed under "Bug fixes"! Made me spill my coffee.
    At least add a warning sign to get user attention before pressing update!

    If Premiere can import some of these formats, why not After Effects?
    I would imagine Adobe's $11 billion annual revenue…

  4. Expose char data

    Currently, AE text layers do not export char data. Only at the textbox level. That means that, if I have a text layer with multiple fonts, or sizes and I use a script to separate each line or each word into its own layer, After Effects just assumes the first font and size. I believe Adobe apps suffer from this issue across the board, actually.

    This is a problem when creating Motion Graphics Templates for Premiere Pro, when using Battle Axe's Overlord, exporting Lottie Animations and just generally limiting for developers.

  5. Global Color creation in After effects

    The ability create a global color and assign it to different items in your comp so you can make color revisions fast. On creation would automatically generate a chip in the color pallets, it would have a special marker to say it's live in the preview.

  6. Premiere to AE Import is Great!

    Just want to express how much I appreciate the interoperability between Premiere and AE. Composing complex visuals has become a delight. Thank you.

  7. Bug: Errors when importing Animate .fla into AE project

    As of the recent 17.0.2 update, I'm finding that I can't import Animate .fla files into AE.

    The import dialog hangs for a while (whited-out in a non responsive state), then returns an error simply stating: "An error occured while importing this file. Please try again.". This error often appears behind the import dialog, and is easily missed.

    This seems to happen with all .fla files, so I don't think it's a specifically broken file. On the previous AE / An version I had gotten around 50% of the way through a large project with fla importing working fine, and…

  8. Marker Bin

    Hi,

    it would be great if we could see all Markers in a bin or folder or spreadsheet like interface.

    Imagine you are searching for notes and shots that you marked
    You can easily find those shots in the markers interface.

    Additionally you can remove them in this interface if you need to.
    Or select many of them even if they are inserted in different compositions.

    I hope you find this helpful

    thanxs

    Peter

  9. Skip frames RAM preview to count from start of timeline, not work area, like it use to.

    I always use the work area to preview (not the option where it starts from the timeline). I also often use the option to Skip frames where AE only RAMs only every 2nd, 5th, 10th, or whatever frame, to save time. I also shuffle or extend the work area up and down to preview different areas. Years ago it use to count which skipped frames to preview from the beginning of the timeline, but now it counts from the beginning of the work area!!! So even if I push the area down a second, or a frame, even though the…

  10. Background color should not default to black when rendering via AME

    When outputting via AE (without an alpha channel) the chosen background color renders as expected, but sending the same comp to AME results in a black background. Why do we need to place a solid behind each comp, only to let us render via AME.
    I only use AME to either render while working, or now because I'm forced to use it for common compression codecs, so for that one pass I need to remember that every single second of every single comp needs a solid on the bottom layer, yeah right.
    If you force us to use AME, give…

  11. Automatic legalize filenames on Output

    I use Expressions a lot, to automatically generate Titles from the Comp name.
    But when diacritics (ë, ü, ï, é etc.) are used, AE won't output. In stead we get a Sheep sound.
    Wouldn't it be great, if AE, in stead of playing the sound, makes the filename legal (on Output only, without feeding it back to the Expressions ;-).

  12. Glyphen

    Glyphen Window for Text Elements directly in Ae instead of using Hex Code or Photoshop Glyphen with copy and paste into Ae for non keyboard glyphen.

  13. Bug Report - AE 17.0 - Lumetri Scopes displaying wrongly when Color Management ON

    Footage displaying identically between AE and Premiere so not always have the same scopes between the programs.

    Repro:
    Get just about any file in Rec. 709 0-255
    Import into Premiere
    Import same file into AE
    Open both scopes. Easiest to see in luma waveform mode.

    With color management off, scopes and pictures seem to match. Once you turn color management on in AE (still off in PP), I'm unable to get AE and PP to match at all, ever.

    I've tried teh following Working Spaces:
    sRGB
    Rec 709
    Rec 709 2.4
    Rec 709 16-235

    and also tried all those spaces…

  14. Can you create a simpler way to loop a layer.

    The current method seems unnecessarily complicated and annoying.

  15. RAM Preview + Click on Timeline freezes After Effects

  16. Make the Snapshot button slidable for opacity

    AE has the Snapshot button, which lets you hold on it to switch between what's currently visible to the snapshot you took

    Right now, the button will simply show you the snapshot and that's it

    I think it'd be cool, if by holding the button and dragging your mouse left-right, you could overlay the snapshot with 0 to 100% opacity

  17. フォントのバグ

    フォントをキーボードの十字キーで移動して選んでいるとき10個目ぐらいからエラーが起きてソフト自体が「応答していません」と表示されます。
    十字キーで移動でき、フォントを一個ずつ表示されるのは本当に助かってます!
    あとはエラーが起きないようにしていただけると助かります!
    よろしくお願いします!

  18. Make Warp stabilizer 2D points exportable as nulls or solids, like in 3D Camera Tracker

    Make Warp stabilizer 2D points exportable as nulls or solids, like in 3D Camera Tracker. Make AE warp stabilizer become a planar tracker.

  20. Centralized plugins and scripts folder

    Just select the folder where AE should load the plugins and scripts from.
    Like it is in Cinema 4D R21 or like it is handled with extensions.
