Incorporate Real 3D Workspace and Node-based Workflow in Next Major Update
I'm really fond of Adobe Products. But It is kinda disappointing when It comes to comparing it with other VFX and Compositing Applications. Even free versions of applications like Black Magic DaVinci Resolve or Fusion have all the features that an artist would desire and they're gaining popularity by leaps and bounds.
So, there's dire need of some serious upgrade that actually deserves the title "Major Update".
We want a real 3D Workspace as well as the capability to choose between layer-based or node-based workflow.
It will surely give Adobe an edge over its competitors making it the first choice of all types of artists as it's also tightly integrated with its other Apps i.e., Photoshop and Illustrator.
Adobe must seriously implement such features that would not only make us proud being a part of Adobe Family but also realize that it is worth the subscription model.
Looking forward to experiencing these

There still is a need for layer based stuff, I use it daily. but if AE could do both intricate nodes AND layers would it would be one of a kind and unstoppable. Or at least would solve a lot of my problems. I don't think there's a need to ditch layers entirely, just add some new non-linear options.

a node based workflow would be a major departure from AE previous workflow and while it might be a boon for special effects users, it would negatively impact many motion graphic artist. It might be worth if it was a stand-alone app or module to access from inside AE. But to wholesale throw out the time-line in favor of nodes, would be a deal killer for me (and I suspect many users).
YES; PLESAE, it would be a revolutionary update.
