  1. 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

  2. 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.

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

    I find it difficult to do learning and development because the use of interpretation is very cumbersome

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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

    Configuration: MacOS 10.13.6 | AE CC 2018 (15.1.2)

    Dual Screen setup. EIZO CS2420 connected to a MacBook Pro 2018 15-Inch via USB-C hub and HDMI cable

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. MatchGrade

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

  14. queue to AME - The RPC server is unavailable

    I am debugging an export plug-in i made with the Premiere Pro SDK. I am trying to export a composition from AE to AME, and i got

    I can provide the log and dmp file too.

  15. Essential Graphics Responsive Backgrounds

    Responsive design should come with an option to make background compositions or layers independent of the protected areas.

    For example, if you have an motion graphics template in Premiere Pro that has a protected intro and outro, but you also have a background that animates the entire time, you could adjust the duration of the template clip without affecting the background outside the protected areas.

    It could be set up as such: 20-second composition (which ends up being the template) and 40-second background precomp. You could then extend the clip in Premiere Pro to 40 seconds without affecting the background…

  17. Fix Precomps in AE2019

    Precomps don't act as they used to. They're broken. Expressions don't carry as they should. I set up twenty text layers to count up with expressions at different rates and after precomping this build, nothing would count, they just looked stuck.

    Furthermore, assets precomped won't stay together. Screenshot below shows what AE2019 is doing. The precomped piece can move on the left, however the grouped graphic on the right remains and won't follow as it should. This makes zero sense. I think this is a bug.

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    We need more information to be able to investigate this problem. Can you provide us with a project file (.aep) that demonstrates 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.)

  18. Add a key to nudge Rotation in 1/10 of a degree

    While manual tracking, or rotoscoping, I find myself often entering rotation values numerically, since the keyboard only allows us to rotate in whole degrees.
    It would be very effective if a modifier key could make this more accurate: in steps of 0.1 degree. (just like it's possible to rotate in steps of 10, by pressing a modifier)

  19. Missing plugin notice gives no information on where the missing plugin layer is

    Opening up an older project, you sometimes get a notification about a missing plugin, but then no information on how to track down where the problem plugin is.

    How many layers have the issue?

    Can the layers and comps have a warning symbol so you can see where the problem is?

    Can there be some sort of log that lists what comp and what layers are missing plugins?

    It's really annoying to hunt around for them, delete/replace them, reopen the scene and it still give the same error because you couldn't find them all.

    Thank you for filing this feature request.

    Currently in After Effects, you can use the Search fields at the top of the Project or Timeline panels to search for either:
    - The keyword “Missing Effects” (which is a saved term if you click on the magnifying glass icon). This will show all comps in the Project panel, or layers in the Timeline panel that reference effects that could not be loaded.
    - The name of the effect that was reported as missing.

    Does the above functionality meet your needs, or do you still desire additional functionality?
