  1. [BUG] When a new keyboard shortcut file is generated, i and o for layer in and out points don't work

    When a fresh shortcut text file is made in CC2020, then going to in and out points doesn't work when pressing i and o. Tested by using a previous custom shortcut text file which works fine. Then removed to generate a new fresh one and the buttons don't work

  4. BUG: Ae associtated with indesign files

    Not sure if this is really an AE thing, but I've been force quitting AE all morning so I'm filing this here so you have some idea why (And because there seems to be no official bug reporting for bridge, and this hardly seems like an Indesign problem)

    Since installing the new CC updates this morning double clicking on any indesign file causes AE to launch. This is true via bridge and finder, and is not fun as AE takes a while to launch then error out (because unsurprisingly you can't read an indesign file in AE)

    Both Bridge and…

  5. Fix "Work Area" preview functionality

    When I have a Work Area delineated in my composition, I hit Preview (Numpad 0). Currently, under the Preview Panel, I have the Range set to "Work Area" for Numpad 0. I would expect this to then just render preview frames in that Work Area. Instead, it renders those preview frames -- and then continues to render frames until the end of the composition, causing a massive slowdown. I contacted Adobe support and they directed me here.

  6. One AE file can be edited by 2 or more person real time.

    I work in a company and we mainly use After Effects for production. There are times that we need to produce a lot of videos that are separated in different compositions and in a very tight deadline. We can't help each other since it is not feasible to work in one AE file with 2 or more persons using it. Is there a way that this can be possible?

    Thank you for filing this report.

    Your screenshot shows that you are launching After Effects 15.1.2, but asking it to open a project saved by After Effects 16.0.1.

    You can resolve this by one of two methods:
    1. Use the command line to launch After Effects 16.0.1 (aka After Effects CC 2019).
    2. From After Effects 16.0.1, choose File > Save As > Save A Copy As CC (15.x), and render from that project file using After Effects 15.1.2.

  8. Display color management

    You could add the same new Premiere Pro color management in After Effects.

    Thank you for filing this request. Can you please clarify what you would like to see added to After Effects? Please post that as a new request. This one has been closed as Resolved.

    After Effects has supported display color management for many years. More information is available on this page:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/color-management.html#enable_or_disable_display_color_management

    A difference between how Premiere Pro and After Effects use display color management (DCM) is that After Effects has a fully configurable color management pipeline, whereas Premiere Pro uses DCM but does not allow you to configure a project working space. In order to enable display color management, you must choose a project working space in After Effects. (Project Settings > Color) Once a project working space is set, DCM is enabled in After Effects.

    Under the hood, Premiere Pro currently assumes Rec. 709 for most color management tasks. This is a simplification of what actually…

  9. Precomps with unique instances

    1. Have a composition containing many layers and properties (a chest of toys)

    2. Bring that composition as a layer (precomp) into a main comp (room)

    3. Have a controller on that precomp layer that affects the contents of the precomp (a knob on the outside of the chest that changes the toys' colors)

    There are plenty of cases where this would be useful.

    One advantage of precomps is being able to have many instances (as layers) in a main comp or multiple comps, and being able to update all instances by changing the precomp. Great.

    If each instance needs to be slightly…

  10. Snapping of Keyframes

    Sometimes keyframes appear to be in the same spot, but are off by either a single frame or between frames (such as in time remapping). It would be wonderful if there was an option to allow snapping of keyframes to keyframes in nearby layers or properties of the same layer. For instance, if I want all the layers to fade-out at the same time, I have to add key frames for opacity. If I then move any of the layers, I have to go in to the layer, zoom in the most amount possible, and then drag and align them…

    Thank you for submitting this feature request.

    What you describe, snapping keyframes to other keyframes, markers, and other objects in the Timeline panel, is already possible. Hold the Shift key while dragging the keyframe. It will snap to other visible keyframes, layer and composition markers, layer in and out points, the work area in and out points, and the current-time indicator.

    All of the objects described above will snap to each other when you hold the Shift key down while dragging. Example, holding the Shift key while dragging the current-time indicator will snap it to markers, visible keyframes, etc.

    I will close this request as Resolved. If I’ve misunderstood your request, or you feel the existing functionality doesn’t match what you described, please post back with clarification of how you would like this feature to work.
