    Thank you for your post.

    I’m not clear on what you’re describing. It would help if you could provide us screenshots or a project file that demonstrate the issue.

    Post a link to your files here, or if you prefer not to post publicly you can send it to aebugs@adobe.com. (If you send to that address: A) Do not send .zip files, they will be blocked; renaming to .thisisazipfile is OK. B) Post a comment here when you have sent the email. I need to manually check that inbox.)

  2. After Effects freezes during disk cache purge

    Sadly, after AE took up about 99.99% of all my RAM (despite setting "other programs" to use like 16GB of RAM, but AE eventually doesn't care and tries to take it all and - image my shock - throws around error messages), the program froze during a "purge RAM & disk cache" operation.
    Memory management is totally broken in AE (since the early 2000s)
    (v. 16.0.1)

  3. Preview Does Not Work

    I'm having an issue where previewing simply does not work. Sometimes frames will turn green as it plays though, sometimes only one frame will show green at at time. Even if it appears that it's rendering and all keyframes turn green, once it gets to the end of the work area, the green bar disappears completely and it does not play back. I've tried restarting my computer, importing my project into a new file, purging the caches, etc.

  6. Create Puppet Pins via Scripting

    Add the ability to properly add pins to a Puppet effect via scripting and/or allow access to the creation point of a pin.

    This would be useful for linking pins to existing tracking points. For example, warping a layer to match a complex stretching surface that Mocha would fail to track.

    Currently there's no way to adjust the origin of a point, so you have to manually set a point, which is prone to error and time consuming with many track points.

  7. Please add After Effects to the IPad Pro

    Since the full version of Photoshop is coming to the IPad Pro, I think it would be good for creatives if After Effects, or a mobile variant of it came to the IPad Pro as well.

  9. I want to be able to select not only the upper layer but also any layer of the track mat

    I want to be able to select not only the upper layer but also any layer of the track mat

    It will be more flexible if you can designate it not only for the upper layer but also for any layer

  10. I want to be able to tailor the adjustment layer to a specific layer

    I want to be able to apply the adjustment layer only to a specific layer.

    I do not want to apply to all the layers below

  11. Rotate Layers in 1/10 of degrees?

    1 degree of rotation is quite big in some cases. But to tweak rotation in such small steps, we have to enter the values numeric. That's very inconvenient. Why not add a possibility to interactively rotate in steps of 1/10 of a degree.

  12. New Comp from Selection Bug - Naming of new comp is different than selection

    AE 2019 - When creating comps based off of PSD's that are imported into after effects (footage - merged) we've come across that at a certain point AE will rename the new comp based off of some other composition name in the project. (Eg. It adds S0001.psd into a composition and calls the new comp S0650)

    In our workflow we are creating 20-30 of these comps per day so having to manually rename them will add alot of time. Especially when it is meant to work with copying the name of the layer.

    I've tried restarting the project and computer,…

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    Can you please provide us with a project that exhibits this problem? Having it in the “before” state with clear steps to reproduce the problem will help us isolate the cause of the problem. Before/after screenshots would also be appreciated.

    Post a link to your files here, or if you prefer not to post publicly you can send it to aebugs@adobe.com. (If you send to that address: A) Do not send .zip files, they will be blocked; renaming to .thisisazipfile is OK. B) Post a comment here when you have sent the email.

  13. keyframes

    Save/Set Selection – Illustrator has a (highly under-utilized) "save selection" feature – it would be incredible to be able to do this with both layers and keyframes. It would greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to tweak animations that require many, many layers or sets of keyframes.

  16. new layer's length as selected layer!

    It is so annoying to have to trim every time you create a new layer to the same length as the layer you'd need, or use plug-ins/scripts for that matter,

    would be awesome every time you create a new adj layer, solid etc, length would be the same as the selected layer, not having to trim it all the time, I have to do this all the time atm.

    Thanks

  17. Change Labelgroup Selection from Text to "Color" or "Text and Color"

    It would be great to have a selection based on colors or colors and text, but only text lets me always search specific colors. i guess it would be much easier for many people to see the colors directly. I work a lot in big comps with a lot layers and comps, so i have to select a lot. Thanks for listening.

  18. Please add the Arabic translation to the education and training section on the website https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/view-all-tutori

  19. BUG - docked extensions cause a crash in AE 2017

    Hi there
    this is a repeatable bug - when I install an extension and dock it with my other toolbars, after rebooting after effects eveything looks fine until I open a project or even just click on a toolbar. then i get a windows error dialog and after effects quits. this does not seem to happen if I leave the extension as a floating window.
    I'm running the 2017.2 release for various reasons - 14.2.1.34 on a fresh install of windows 10.
    The extensions I have tried this with are Flow (v1.0.2b) and also the latest version of TimeTracker which…

  20. Time Reverse layer

    There is a persisting bug with the 'Time reverse layer' command - often drops first frame, sometimes drops or displays random wrong frame elsewhere in the reversed layer.
