  1. solo and lock

    solo and lock button for layer/s you are working on, this will solo the layer/s you are working on and lock all other layers. The ability to solo and lock 1 layer or multiple layers and have solo and locked button able to toggle it on and off. As well as solo and lock you could have a way of locking all other layers while you work on selected layers that need to be unlocked minus solo so its a fully working composition eliminating having to click different layers and have them move when you make a mistake. This can…

  2. Issue with text files

    This is an issue with text files. I have to *.txt files, one had a single line of text and the other one had more than one line. When importing these in AE the first file was detected as "corrupted" while the second one loaded without a problem.

  4. while consolidation add skip option for some footages that we don't want to collect but it should be in ae as unlinked file.

    while consolidation add skip option for some footages that we don't want to collect but it should be in ae as unlinked file, because it takes too much time to collect footages which we can be simply linked to it later from our source footage location.

  5. Toggle to switch between using property index or property name as default when pickwhipping

    When pickwhipping an effect while holding Alt/Option, After Effects refers to the property by index, eg. ("Slider Control")(1), instead of by property name, eg. ("Slider Control")("Slider").

    I often use this, as I deal with clients in multiple languages, and the property index reference is more robust in this case. I would appreciate a toggle in Preferences to switch this behaviour so that using property index is the default for pickwhipping (no modifier keys needed), and property name is used when holding Alt/Option.

  6. dont trigger save dialogue when project is empty

    since the last version ae triggers the save dialogue even when the project is empty, eg when i open the first project. really annoying for large project i want to open and then leave it for a minute, but then theres this dialogue in the back which prevents it from actually opening the project.

  7. ACTUALLY LET US MAKE A DIRECT COMPLAINT

    How about instead of making us VOTE for features we want you to repair. You take the money we give you every month and fix the problems. No broken feature should require a popularity contest to get fixed. It's pathetic.

  10. Motion Tracking Overhaul

    We need a complete rework of Motion Tracking and the tracking UI. I'm a Visual Effects artist and use the tracking features of AE daily. I wide up using Mocha for most things because AE's tracking system is in dire need of improvements. Not sure I can remember the last time these features were touched.
    1. Tracking controls should be in the footage window, not a separate tab, this makes it easy to ~ key the footage window and full screen the entire shot. tracking occurs in the footage window, the settings should be in there as well.
    2. CENTER…

  11. Real time update color bar in Hue/Saturation

    When dragging the virtual sliders to change numbers in Hue/Saturation Effect / Colorize mode, the color bar in the effect panel is only updated when the mouse button is released.
    This doesn't allow easy and intuitive color manipulation.

  13. Please make te home screen less rigid.

    The home screen completely blocks MacOS. Creating a new Safari window results in a window behind the home screen.
    Annoying.

  16. Use graphic's name as it appears in CC Libraries when adding to AfterEffects

    Currently, when adding a PSD graphic from CC Libraries to an Aftereffects project, the name of the PSD's top layer is used as the Source Name. Instead, use the name as it appears as in CC Libraries.

  17. restart button for restarting the entire app under file menu

    There exists an Exit option under the file menu. but it would be a huge timesaver to have a Restart option so Adobe apps can Restart by itself appropriately and systematically without having the need to manually do it.

  19. Zoom control whilst in Effect Control Panel

    I'm often tweaking stuff in the Effect Control panel and wanting to look at the changes zoomed in and out, but the keyboard shortcuts for zooming in and out only work when the timeline or comp window is selected. Please make the keyboard shortcuts work whilst the Effect Control Panel is active.
    Thanks

  20. Master audio volume

    I would like to have a master volume knob for audio that does not effect rendered audio levels. Just for convenience, when Ae is used while listening to music or podcasts.

    In fact, this slider is already included, it just does not work.
