  1. BUG Preview/playback is extremely glitchy

    BUG Preview/playback is extremely glitchy

    It simply doesn't work. Nothing happens when you press the spacebar. Tried a lot of troubleshooting already.

    Turning on Cache before playback helped for a few minutes. Then it plays back in what seems to be 2x as fast. Then it bums out again and nothing works. When I quit the software stops responding and you need to force quit.

    Problems started on Fri 31 Jan on a Late 2013 iMac (High Sierra) 3,2 GHz Intel Core i5.

  3. After Effects regularly missing keystrokes

    After Effects is regularly missing keystrokes. I have tried to type slower, give the system time to catch up, and when I'm typing text in a composition it just randomly does not register keys. Occasionally it happens when I'm typing values into a panel (Setting font size to 150 and it will miss a number so it will be 10 or 15 or 50). This only seems to occur regularly in AE 2020. This is creating huge problems with clients on larger text blocks because AE is introducing typos because of this bug.

  4. Timer Remap Glitch

    Sometimes scripts inside the Time Remap keys are executed (or get reported as errors) when Time Remap is disabled on the layer.

  5. Re-Insert Important option of selecting 'Indic' in 'Language Selection', that has been removed from Preference>Type.

    This option was available in previous versions of After effects. This enabled users to type directly in Indian language fonts or import / Copy paste Indian Language text and display correctly in After effects.

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

    The current method seems unnecessarily complicated and annoying.

  8. URGENT BUG - Effects on 3D shape layers don't show at all - 2020 17.0.2

    This is a crucial bug that needs to be fixed IMMEDIATELY!

    Any shape layer that's 3D doesn't show any effects. If 3D is disabled on the layer, the effects show.

    This is a crippling bug introduced in the latest update and it needs to be fixed ASAP!!!!

  9. Keymix Plugin à la Nuke

    Essential keying workflow tool. Would be awesome to have that without jumping through sub-comp hoops:

  11. 3D Camera projection on primitive objects for Matte-Paintings

    Would be great to have the possibility to add 3D objects like deformed layers to project pictures or images onto it - for example to create a cool looking 3D mountain matte-painting or to project objects on primitives. Some more 3D features overall would be cool.

  12. Make Composition-/Layer-Lentgh editable via script or Essential Graphics

    Would be great to get control over layer or composition length via expressions like a slider. Maybe let us set start- and end-points so that if you change the time-length in Essential-Graphics we could shorten the composition in Premiere as well and some other use cases.

  14. There is getting Photoshop 3D into after effects and being able to manipulate inside AE. How comes we haven't got this functionality yet. U

    Hi,
    One major issue I have with After Effects is getting Photoshop 3D/Materials into after effects and being able to manipulate inside AE on 3D Plane. How comes we haven't got this functionality yet. Users have been asking about this for years. I have been asking about this for about 3 years. I know there is Cinema 4D which deals with 3D Layers but I just don't understand how you own 3D functionality doesn't work between apps but you have an outside companies 3D Applications work on there but not your own products. That one I will leave up to…

  15. Warp Stabilizer fade in/out

    Make a 0-100% slider on the Warp Stabilizer. This way if there's is a tiny bump in a steadicam shot that is 1 minute long you can stabilize that one bump, animate it in and out and then it's done.

  18. font text pasting in after from photoshop

    Here is a stripped down Photoshop file with 2 text layers; One that originally came from the client's PS doc (though I've changed the font and content), called "broken one", and another that I made right next to it called "broken two":

    Text Mystery.psd:

    http://clients.idolum.com/get/d0a595d18871

    If you look at the text layers in Photoshop, they appear to have all the same properties.. same size, attributes, etc.

    Now bring this Photoshop into After Effects as a composition. Right-click each layer and do "Convert to Editable Text." Now select the text in the "broken one" layer and note that its size has…

  19. Add all possible Keyboard Layouts

    Please add all possible keyboard layouts. Currently there are only the major ones (en, es, de, etc.) but others aren't available (such as Switzerland, Hungary etc.).

    I might add: I can currently use my CH keyboard but it doesn't show the keys on the graphic (i.e. I have to do it "blindly").

    Thanks

  20. fix LUTs issue when opening clips from Premier Pro into AE

    when opening clips from Premier into AE, users must then re-apply the LUTs by selecting them from the LUTs folder for each clip, every time. This is annoying.. You ask us to create a common folder and put everything there instead of in the LUTs folders in AE ( which worked ), and this solution doesn't work for beans.. Yes, they are there if you create a new clip in AE, but when going between apps, AE doesn't automatically assign the LUT that was assigned in Premier from the common folder... this has been going on since you asked us…
