  1. rotobrush crashes on m1 macbook pro

    Hi, I've read on other issues of when rotobrush crashes on first stroke. This is NOT my issue. I'm able to generate as many strokes as I want.. but only on the first frame. As soon as I move forward (or backward), AE crashes. Help!

    I am using the latest AE on the M1 Macbook Pro — I've attached my specs.

  2. Ability to scale up/down comps maintaining stroke width

    The only way to maintain stroke width is an extremely tedious process having to add an expression to every single stroke path. In Illustrator double-clicking on the scale tool gives you the option as to whether you want to maintain stroke-width/corners or not. Let's get something similar in After Effects to save us severe headaches. Thanks

  3. Live VR viewer in Ae

    Premiere Pro has a version of this already–although it's quite juvenile and could use some help. After Effects, however, doesn't have one. I'd love to have a live VR viewer in After Effects with a little more upgrades than the current Premiere option, especially dimension control (so the window isn't just a square). Many base level 360 editing software includes a variety of viewing options such as Tiny Planet, Crystal Ball, Natural View, and Flat. This simple window would save me so much time and make the world of a difference for 360 footage integration. (screenshot is from Insta360 Studio…

  5. PLEASE FIX the dreaded "unable to obtain dynamiclink project"

    I am getting an “unable to obtain dynamiclink project” error when I try to reapply Warp Stabilizer to a clip that had to be extended in length.

    As Dynamic Link has caused problems for me in the past, my workflow for the past 3+ years is to copy/paste footage from Premiere Pro into a new After Effects timeline, and render a ProRes file. This has worked flawlessly for me, and no need to mess with Dynamic Link once I had the files in AE.

    Today, I opened a project that contained some previously warp stabilized clips, one of which had…

  6. Bug: Can't scroll down in UI panels when list extends beyond screen space

    When selecting a parent from a list (not using the pick whip) it does not let you scroll down to select parents beyond available screen space. This also happens in the effect panel when selected a layer from a list. Some lists allow you to scroll down like when selecting extensions in the window panel some do not.

  8. please make more user friendly tutorials for beginners

    For the tutorials I accidentally changed the layout of the workspace boxes. Even after refreshing, the boxes remain rearranged and I can no longer follow the tutorial as a beginner. Also the tutorial will always say you made the correct next step even when it is not. Please fix this

  9. Introduce Locked But Editable Compositions

    I do a lot of wire and rig removal work, and am constantly battling moving a spline point and finding the entire composition is being moved. This happens while doing other work, as well.

    My concept would be a "locked but editable" feature, where the layer is locked in position, but can still be worked on.

  11. [BUG] ProRes DNxHR RGB 444 12 bit Export fail


    1. Export ProRes DNxHR RGB 444 12 bit with no Alpha, but "premuliplied" setting

    2. Import the Rendering back into AE.

    3. Playback reports error. Video is black.

    Workaround: Set the output alpha to "straight" even though there is no alpha channel.

  15. Bug report: MoGRTs and Libraries

    When you click "Export Motion Graphics Template..." in the AE Essential Graphics panel, the "Libraries" panel opens in your workspace, re-arranging all your panels. This is very annoying for anyone who doesn't use Libraries and breaks workspaces every.single.time.you.export.a.mogrt.

  16. Hide Layer controls while scrubbing

    Simple option in preferences to Hide Layer controls while scrubbing.
    Why, because it improves performance by order of magnitude!

    Also, Hide Layer controls while handling layers in timeline, same reason!

    Or rewrite layer controls overlay.

    We all know that AE became browser engine, but please don`t be internet explorer!

  17. Make the standard Star Shape a perfect pentagram

    Five pointed stars are mostly used as a pentagram, in which the adjacent lines are in line.
    Unfortunately, the star we get when the Polystar shape is set to 'star' is a random fat and unattractive star.

    https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentagram

    Compare this special shape (wikipedia) to the star Ae produces.(screenshot)

  19. Export each layers to separate .PSDs

    Hi guys, it would be a huge time saver to have the posibility to export each layer of a composition in a different .psd at once, instead of having to do them one by one with "Composition > Save frame as > Photoshop layers".

    I had to do a lot of inserts for a small documentary and afterward needed to export one by one which is annoying
