  1. BUG - The workspace is saved when quitting the program

    When I quit the program, the active workspace is updated with the current configuration. In order not to change the workspaces, I always have to remember to reset my workspace before quitting the program so that it doesn't get lost!

    Can you please solve this bug?

  2. M1 Max ProRes 4444 Alpha Compressor Failing Render

    Renders fail when attempting to export ProRes 4444 alpha that would otherwise not occur on Intel based macs.

    Issue causes the following prompt:

    """

    After Effects error: Rendering error will writing to file "...." Compressor format error. (-1610153454).

    Followed by:

    After Effects error: An unexpected error occured while exporting a composition. Error Code: 9988

    Please restart After Effects and retry the export.

    """"

    Anecdotally, this is occurring on about 80% of comps I try to render. Most frequently on more complex comps with blurs and variations in the opacity levels.

    Please fix this quickly, otherwise this effectively causes AE on…

  4. We need savable, cacheable roto brush propagation.

    Rotobrush constantly requires re-propagation of footage.

    I propagate in the footage viewer, click away, then double click the same footage in the timeline to re-open the footage that just propagated - it propagates again.

    I close a project and re-open - it propagates again.

    I freeze and unfreeze a mask - propagates again.

    I move the same footage to a different comp, and re-open the footage viewer - propagates again.

    We need savable, cacheable propagation.

    Hi Matthew,


    Thanks for making this request. To save a currently propagated Roto Brush span, use the Freeze button in the bottom bar of the Layer panel while Roto Brush & Refine Edge is selected in the View dropdown menu ( see attached image ). This will prevent Roto Brush from re-propagating on project open and when other aspects of the project are modified.


    Roto Brush should only re-propagate when there isn't enough RAM to hold its cache or when the footage with Roto Brush applied is modified "upstream" i.e. when a mask or some other footage attribute is modified before the pixels are passed on to the Roto Brush effect. Some of the scenarios you've listed, like closing and re-opening a project or moving the footage to a different comp, should trigger re-propagation unless you've frozen the propagation as mentioned above. The other scenarios shouldn't trigger re-propagation unless the…

  5. Zoom IN & OUT in timeline shortcuts

    It would be a very useful function to create shortcuts for Zoom IN & OUT in the timeline. Does exist in Premiere, and 3rd party softs such as Cubase, Wavelab, etc.
    This lack makes lose time, especially when working on more than 1 mn projects

  6. Feature Request - Option to turn off "Cache Frames when idle" (AFX Beta 22.2.0)

    The new After Effects Beta is great and I enjoy the performance boost, but there is one feature which kills all the enjoyment of the performance boost, that is the "Cache Frames when idle" feature, that cannot be disabled.

    The problem is, that after being idle for a maximum of 15 seconds the program fills up my RAM to the brim. I could obiously reduce the amount of RAM AFX is allowed to use, but I want the program to use all of my RAM when necessary, as I'm often working in 32bit. As the program is now, it will…

  8. "Dropdown Menu Control Effect" disappearing from the Essential Graphic Window

    BUG:

    When I edit a property of a "Dropdown Menu Control Effect" (Adding or removing a Name), it disappears from the Essential Graphic Window, I have to drop it back again and re-input the name it was given. (same issue for AE 2021 and AE Beta)

    If we can fix this it would be great. With Love

  10. Bring back 1, 2, 4-View Interface!

    For some stupid reason... we can no longer see the 1, 2, 4-View option in the Composition Window. This feature has been changed where you MUST have 3D Track enabled in order to view this option. Whomever made that decision to update the interface with this newer work flow is an Idiot! CHANGE IT BACK! There was NO reason for this!

  11. 18.0.0 and 18.0.1 Canon codec bug

    Hi,
    I'm having trouble in new releases of AE with Canon codec clips that I'm currently working in 2020 without problems.

    The clips were recorded on a C300 mark 2 camera, with the 1920x1080 rgb444 12bit codec.

    The red/blue channels are switched (a set channel is enough to resolve), I'm just giving you feedback to resolve the problem directly on next patches.

    I tested only on windows, version 18.0.0 and 18.0.1, two different computers and I got the same problem.
    If needed I can send a link to clip to test (the smaller I have it's about 1Gb)

  13. When Double Clicking on Mask/Shape layers in the toolbar, hold a modifier key to constrain to a 1:1 ratio

    When double-clicking on a rectangle or oval Path Creator icon in the toolbar, it creates a centered shape to fit the bounds of the composition. I would love the ability to hold a modifier key to create a 1x1 shape that fits the bounds, i.e. a centered square or circle. There's almost no easy way to do this otherwise.

  14. zoom shortcut broken

    After Effects 17.5.1 (MacOS Catalina) still have Alt-scroll (zoom) functionality broken. I saw a post where Adobe Admin told that this issue was solved in 17.5.1 update, but it is not.
    If I have a comp without a Camera layer, with my SelectionTool selected I can press Alt and scroll to zoom in/out. But if I have Camera layer (locked or unlocked), Alt key switches to camera tool and when I scroll I'm changing the depth.

  15. mogrt text isn't showing up

    I created a mogrt call-out locator pin file in After Effects that is essentially the same as the locator pin call-out template, only in the opposite direction. I exported the mogrt file from After Effects to my local templates folder and went to premiere to use it. But when I put it onto my timeline in premiere, the text doesn't show up. Everything but the text shows up. Why? Where did the text go?

  16. Render Push Notifications via Mobile Device

    Rendering is a part of the experience we all just sit around waiting for. We want to be able to take a nap or go get some food without worrying my render has failed or that my computer is just sitting there when I have deadlines.

    Introduce a function via Adobe CC perhaps that would allow you to track and notify you about the completion of renders in After Effects, Premiere or Media Encoder.

    Here is a concept video designed to give you some ideas: https://youtu.be/G9kQEchDun0

  17. Selecting layers in Timeline Panel; "Click & Drag"

  19. BUG:Inaccurate results when setting displayStartTime via script

    After Effects does some bad math when I try to set the displayStartTime of a comp via script.
    When I attempt to set the displayStartTime of a 30fps comp to frame 1000 (33.333333333333 seconds).
    The result startTime is instead 33.3333320617676, which rounds down to frame 999.
    However, setting the startFrame to 1000 manually in the comp settings does make the startTime 33.3333333333333, which should be the expected result via script.

  20. Allow .mogrt files to export with adjustment layers to affect video clips in Premiere.

    I use a lot of the same graphics for multiple "Projects" and wanted to create a template in After Effects for consistency and lessen the workload. But It part of that graphic is to turn part of the video clip black and white I need to use an Adjustment Layer. Allowing Adjustment Layers to port over with .mogrt files would make things much easier for me and I'm guessing others as well.
