  1. Add a method to set the project panel as active.

    'app.project.activeItem' is very limited since it can either be an active viewer or an active item on the project panel. There's a workaround for open comps with 'app.activeViewer.setActive()' to make sure you are on the viewer but there's no workaround for the opposite. There is no command to make sure you are operating with the selected project panel items.

    if I want to 'executeCommand()' on the project panel selected items, but the panel is not active. I'm basically defeated.

  2. Include FolderItem.duplicate()

    compItem.duplicate() is a thing but can't duplicate folders at all. Seems like it should be a thing.

  3. Include item.index to ExtendScript

    Yes, 'item.id' is cool, but it's not serial, and sometimes you need to iterate through items based on their indexes, trusting the indexes are in numerical order. When I need to get an item's id I need to use its name to loop through the entire project manager until I get a match. It just is so much for something so simple and it feels like item.index should be a thing, just like 'layer.index' is! Please!

  4. Venice X-OCN delayering results in clamped highlights and does not allow linearised workflow

    The internal X-OCN debayer results a) in clamped Highlights even in 32bpc and is b) slightly less sharp.

    I compared AE to the Reference DeBayer from Sony (Same as SCRATCH & Resolve in Sony Mode).
    Presumably AE debaters in Standard and not in High Quality Mode. Sadly there are no settings possible beyond Colorspace in AE.

    And: AE shows a black image and is laggy when enabling linearised workflow and crashed when you try to simulate a Display Workspace in Color Managed workflows.

    The DeBayering pipeline seems to be broken / low quality and should not be used in an…

  5. Add "Legacy" option when exporting Avid DNxHD Quicktimes

    Since AE 22.3, Avid DNxHD Quicktimes appear to be broken in all software but the latest version of Avid Media Composer.

    This was a deliberate change to the codec:

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-discussions/announcement-changes-to-quicktime-dnxhd-support-in-premiere-pro-22-3/m-p/12905939#M408114

    Unless the problem can be fixed, then I recommend a "Legacy" option be added to the export settings, to allow this essential codec to continue to work in the 90% of real world cases on productions.

  6. After Effects to Audition Dynamic Link

    After Effects still not being able to import MultiTrack Sessions from Audition via Dynamic Link is a bizarre oversight. These two apps should have been united a long time ago.

  9. Essential Graphics : custom font style (italic or regular or bold) within a paragraph

    Hello all,

    I'm working on a project between After Effects & Premiere Pro. I want to create multiples text animation coming from the left & the right side. The animation is working well and my text is formatted well as well. BUT for this purpose, I will need to have the possibilty to edit the text. For this, i'm drag n dropping the source text for the text layer into my Essential Graphics panel, it's working well, I can even add properties such as Enable Custom Font Selection, Enable Font Size Adjustement & Enable Faux Styles. The thing is that…

  11. Add Vertically and Horizontally Scale to the list of Available text styling attributes

    Vertically and Horizontally Scale is one of the functions from the Character panel that is missing from the list of accessible attributes through text.sourceText.style expression.
    It would be great to have access to them. Thank you

  12. Multiple selections and groups from selections in Essential Graphics (Mogrt)

    MOGRT projects with multiple controllers, It takes too much time to select and group dozens of controllers one by one. It can be possible to make multiple selections, and groups from selections would be a time saver. Also, creating groups and adding properties to groups via ExtendScript can open the door for more powerful tools. Thank you.

  13. Curves on Masks

    HI, I currently create a new layer for every curve(s) I apply. I thought I may be able to apply curves to masks so I could have multiple curves (colours) in one layer. Unfortunately I cannot do this and I am guessing it is about the 'paths'. Is there or could there be a way to turn masked sections into layers - although this may increase file size. I become limited to only changing one colour (applied curve(s)) a layer so if i have 5 masks they are all the one colour where I want say 5 masks of different…

  14. Rounded Rectangle Mask Options

    When you create a rounded rectangle mask, under the Mask Path there are no roundness properties/options to change the roundness setting after making the mask. There needs to be a setting/property to change the roundness of the rounded rectangle mask under Mask 1 in the timeline panel.

  15. "Collect Files..." not working at all on 22.4.0

    I'm trying to package my project so I can move the whole thing to a new folder location. In the last version I was using, AE was crashing every time I would try to "Collect Files...". I updated to 22.4.0 hoping it would fix the issue, but now when I try to "Collect Files..." nothing happens at all. Also I have given AE full disk access in my system preferences. (I am running AE on a Apple M1 Mac Book Pro, macOS Monterey 12.3.1)

  17. aerender does not report progress

    Somewhere between v. 20 and 22 aerender has stopped reporting progress on most renders, ignoring the -v "ERRORSANDPROGRESS" flag.
    It could be related to the use of output modules with interlacing. Sometimes it does report, but I haven’t found a pattern.
    I've tried to debug the commmandLineRenderer.jsx file and can confirm that it seems to understand the argument and sets curitem.logType = LogType.ERRORSANDPERFRAME_INFO; correctly.
    However both logging to console or file omits the usual pr. frame lines.
    This is a critical feature for us in terms of reporting render progress to users.
    I've tested…

  18. Add Keyframe Objects in the Scripting API

    Compositions, Layers and Properties are all objects with attributes and methods, but keyframes are not. In fact keyframes do not really exist as anything. To get a keyframe, you have to use Property methods such as “keyAtTime()”, or know the index of the key you are trying to access.
    Manipulating big amount of keyframes can be very difficult because of this.

    It would be very helpful if Keyframes were objects and had their own attributes. Assigning ID to keyframes can be super useful as well.

  19. Remove Parenthesis () around the "Footage" folder when using Collect Files feature

    These parenthesis are HARMFUL to production servers like the one at the agency I work at, and are generally unnecessary for the auto-generated folder when using the "collect files" feature in After Effects. Just "Footage" would be TOTALLY fine, but the parenthesis cause a lot of problems for machines and teams that can easily get tripped up with special characters. Please remove them from that dependency!!

  20. Transition generator directly from After Effects to Premiere Pro

    All the time when I want to add my custom transition in premiere I have to create new AAE comp and all the time make the same things. This app need to easy transitions making system where you'll declarate "dummy in" and "dummy end" of clip, and import it into Premiere pro, as transition with all comp solids, adjustment layers, nulls and effects.

    I've tried to do my custom transitions using newest option to replace video components from premiere pro, but it's stupid declarate. There isn't "dummy video" but you have to set video path and replace this path from…
