Folders in After Effects timeline
Timeline folders. We have them in Animate, Photoshop, Illustrator... precomps can utterly ruin your work and is NOT an alternatives to having a simple folder hierarchy - especially when dealing with shape layers or anything that requires continual rasterization.

Guys, we all beg you, we pay montly, just listen to the crowd, its the best you could do...
Billy Neal commented
Yes. This would be a great help. Precomps have their place and are incredibly essential. But this would better help organize complex projects.
Brennan Cregan commented
I don't imagine it would be relatively hard to add in either...
Natanael Alves commented
For God sake, please add it...
Philipp Daub commented
Imagine you are one of the biggest providers of creative software and you don't manage to add such a basic feature in 10 years. Just Adobe things...
Rafael Lewis commented
Also have them in Cinema 4D, Cavalry, Moho...

People have been asking for this for years and years.
Why can't we have timeline folders?!
Parker Wright commented
Pro Tools just added it. Grouping would SIGNIFICANTLY increase my workflow
Marcus Cunha commented
Upvote! Adobe, please!
Doug Lapsley commented
This would be SO helpful and would seem such a simple addition. Working on large timelines would be so much simpler if we could group the layers.
I cant wait to see it...
please upvote this idea maybe adobe will hear us!!
Oliver Geiss commented
This would be a perfect match: Folder.
But over several years this is a real topic in the forum.
I think it will never be realised, it's a pity.
Christian Benci commented
Folders just like in Photoshop. Simple and would dramatically improve productivity.
Sarah Peloquin commented
Agreed. I think of precomps as being like smart objects in Photoshop. If I had to make a smart object every time I wanted to group things together, that would be a nightmare. Often I want to group layers while still maintaining the visual context of the larger comp. This is not possible with a precomp. The only other option is to have an endless scroll of layers. Shy guy arguably helps with this, but I have yet to find a particularly productive way to use it in my workflow.
