  1. Return from the Dark Side

    I have a real problem:
    Dark user interface triggers my horrible migraine.

    Latest Photoshops fortunately have restored
    the option to change UI light.

    I suggest that the same would be done to After Effects.

    I physically can't use it now but I know that also a lot of
    other artists find lighter UI more relaxing to the eyes.

  2. Basic Audio Editor with Beat Timer (+VST Support if possible)

    Hello,

    It would make life a lot easier if there was some way that Basic Audio Editing could be brought up to a more modern standard in After Effects. At the moment, the user has to go through lots of drop-down menus to see a basic waveform. It is difficult if I want to add single sounds in Audio or use any effects to create my own sounds.

    It dosen't have to be super advanced but at least something more usable and not just something that freezes up the whole system when you add a delay to an Audio Track.

  14. add a compatibility notice at the head/an alert box of EVERY update

    just gone through an incident where AME 14.5 stopped responding when using "add to AME queue" from AE 17.5.0. i saw there was an upgrade available, to AME14.9, so i went ahead. support agent Abhishek advised me that AME14.9 requires AE 17.7 to be compatible. i feel that there should be some immediate alert telling customers "DO NOT UPDATE XX UNLESS YOU HAVE YY VERSION OF BLAH".

    btw, Abhishek was super helpful in getting AME rolled back and up and working again, as was Sameer on saturday. unfortunately, that was only a temporary fix

  17. Add blending modes to Fill Effect

    Always wondered why the effect lacks those. (and why the Opacitiy parameter of the effect affects the Opacity of the layer)

  19. "Track Matte" feature for the "Set Matte" Effect.

    CC composite is great for compositing its own layer over itself again, the track mattes is good for tracking an alpha/luma of a layer above itself.
    However, many times I'd like to composite, say an icon, over a circle shape - then animate each one independently (perhaps the circle scales up and the icon slides down to the centre of the circle), then, have the icon track the circles alpha channel so you only ever see the icon inside the circle.
    Set matte doesnt often work as you are manipulating transform properties, and set matte seems to only work when…

  20. "keep on top" checkbox

    A "keep on top" checkbox in the layer properties could be helpful, maybe It could be activated by doble clicking the padlock symbol. With it, a specific layers would always remain on top of the others when adding many layers to the timeline, without having to reposition it manually on top of the new layers. This could be useful for adjustment layers and track data which is going to be copied and linked multiple times.
