  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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. I need to manually check that inbox.)

  5. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

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

  11. 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…

  12. Add bounce should be a native feature for keyframe assistant.

    If we have wiggle for a native feature we should have bounce as a native feature to one click add to our keyframed animation without having to grab the expression each time and copy and paste.

    Here's the bounce I use.

  15. Reversing multiple key frames

    When using a still image as a lead-in to a clip in a virtual set, the still is set to 50% of the clip size and when leading in, grows and shifts position using key frames.

    It would be great if one could select those key frames for the lead-in, reverse them and apply them for a lead out that ends with a still frame without changing the timing.

  17. Bug: Drop Down menu for a plugin does not work

    I could not open the dropdown to select the text separation with Text Exploder 2.0.002 from Mamoworld. I tried it with different AE projects and only restarting AE helped to make it work again. Please see attached screen capture.

    Thanks, Rene

  18. Bug - Failing to export high quality videos

    Since 2019 was introduced, currently all codecs used for exporting outside of low quality ones like avi and mpeg4 are resulting in videos with flickers and broken animations, as if the graphics card is failing - this is taking place when mercury software only is being used as well as enhancements.

    This is the case when AE content is present in Premiere Pro or through Media Encoder.

  19. Displayed color management settings should save to the after effects project file.

    Color management settings should be default be saved to the after effects project file. Specially the displayed color (RGB, Display Color Management etc.)

    When opening a shared project across multiple computers this would be very useful.

  20. MatchGrade

    Something similar to Nuke's MatchGrade, where you input one layer as the reference and output matching color to a different layer.
