  1. tmpAEtoAMEProject

    Leftover files create when exporting from AE to ME starting with "tmpAEtoAMEProject-". These files stay there even after the ME queue is cleared.

  2. Create a 'Send Dynamic Link Comp to Premiere' function

    Kind of an inverse of Premiere's 'Replace with After Effects composition' I'd love a way to take the AE comp I'm working in and just send it into Premiere as dynamically linked, without having to go to Premiere, find the AE project in the Media Browser, navigate through the project, find the comp, and import the comp.

  3. Being Able to Move around Composition by nudging arrow keys

    When I am zoomed in and trying to move around the Comp, it would be good if there is an option to nudge as my trackpad only zooms in and out of the composition. When I am zoomed in doing detailed work, its hard to switch to the hand tool and I might need to move around without pressing down the Spacebar

    Many thanks :)

  5. AE fields interpretation looks jagged on static type in the viewport.

    This is a strange issue I encountered in AE 2020 (17.0.1) AE 2019 (16.1.1).
    Sometimes I need to check copies of TVC's I rendered with AME for Broadcast.
    They are usually MXF OP1a (Codec: XDCAMHD 50 PAL (4:2:2). Field Order Upper First).
    When I drag those MXF files into After Effects, they are automatically interpreted UFF (Remove Pulldown Off) and I tick Preserve Edges for best quality.
    The Problem is, that static type always has slightly jagged edges. If I turn the interpretation to "off" (like it should be with progressive footage) everything looks smooth. Is this a bug or…

  6. Send Markers to Parent Comp

    I would like to send markers set in a Layer (which is a PreComp) to the Composition it is referring to. Just te other way round than 'update Markers from Source', the feature should name 'send Markers to Source'.

    In this way it is easier to create complex music synced animations with a lot of precomps.

  7. Adding time audio units into After effects, for grester control while trying to create animations to music.

    It would be really good if the Time Audio Units function in premiere could be added into after effects. I find it really frustrating that you're not able to accurately move music or layers to within milliseconds of each other. Unless you're lucky and the music happens to fall within milliseconds of a frame, text or other animations are always slightly off beat. Using dynamic link or other hacks using premiere are just too long winded. I'm really surprised this isn't already a feature in AE.
    I hope my explanation is clear.

  8. Allow to drop more type of controls in the EGP

    For now there still some type of controls that we often that we can't simply drag and drop into the EGP like:
    3d positions,
    orientation,
    mask feather
    etc

    I know that for those we can split them using expression fx like sliders and such but honestly it feels like a waste of time and it pushes newbies away from EGP..
    So please help us by either add those properties as they are in egp or by splittiing those inside the egp to keep compatility safe for Premiere

  9. AE still appears as a Background process

    AE stays always as a background process, after closing it. Only quit task will stop it. Opening Ae again will result in a crash, because its already open as a background process. Any ideas why? This happening at the workstation, at my company.

  10. GPU Driver Unsupported

    Quadro 2000s for both desktop and mobile have gone belly up for Premiere and After Effects in the last couple of weeks. They were working fine and now they are getting error messages for drivers. Drivers are all up to date. So the Adobe system is causing a failure that is not seen in other sofware.

  11. New update to Shape Layers has broken the Repeater End and Start Opacity

    In shape layers, the Repeater End and Start Opacity feature doesn't work when the Stroke is Setting is placed beneath the Repeater. It only works if the Stroke setting is placed above the Repeater. This is not acceptable since placing the Stroke setting beneath the repeater will cause all the instances of the shape to have the exact same stroke width which is what I want in many cases. So if a scale setting has been chosen in the Repeater Transform menu, all instances of the shape will have a thicker (or thinner) stroke. In this case, the start and…

  12. Addig "hue" as a text animation property does not add a new range selector

    Addig "hue" as a text animation property does not add a new range selector. Instead it gets added to the previously added range selector.

  13. There's a ghost layer in composition that I cannot remove

    There's a ghost layer in the composition I cannot remove. It doesn't actually exist in layers, but I can see it in the preview.

  14. BUG: Parenting a layer to a layer with a scale of zero does not retain child transform

    If a layer is parented to a layer with with a 0% keyframe scale, the child layer does not retain its transform, but snaps to the position/scale of the parent. The only way to avoid this is to make the scale greater than zero before parenting, in which case the child layer retains its transform properly

  15. Temporarily disable parenting

    Please provide a way to temporarily override parenting. Very often, I need to, say, reposition or scale an object BUT to keep the children at the original place. Right now, user has to unlink the child layers, make the transform and re-link children.

  16. Per character animation for layer styles

    It would be great if layer styles (such as outer glow or drop shadow) could be controlled in text layers with per character animations, as it can be done with opacity, rotation or position. Thanks!
