No more ugly splash screens please.
Whe we launch After Effects, it could be great if the splash screen would be:
- In relation with After Effects, somehow.
We're not just users, we're also artists, and our environment is very important to our creativity, we're always looking for new stuff, for inspiration.

Totally agree! The 2022 version of the apps have awful artwork that we have to live with every single work day. At least give us the option to turn off those awful illustrations and photos.

Opinion : These Adobe splash screen images drive me absolutely nuts. Obviously they don't bother anyone else. I am missing the decades of launching applications like Media Composer, DS, Flame, Fire, Smoke, with splash screens that made me feel like I was about to do something serious. The adobe splash screens feel like I am launching a social media app. Example, Premiere 2022 with ladies in pink sweat suits playing peek-a-boo? Seriously?

Can we have the option to have no art on the splash screen please. Just the app logo, for example. I don't want to look at rubbish art 30 times a day opening Adobe apps.
Robert Mayfield commented
Yes, get rid of the white.

I don't care about the images, I even appreciate them because they are made by fellow ae artists, but the WHITE! When I opened up after effects for the first time with the new white screen I literally thought something on my computer was broken. Everything about it was wrong since none of the apps have white backgrounds.

While I do agree to get rid of the terrible white, the rest of your critique doesn't really apply. The image IS from an AE-user. The image DOES stem from an animation created within AE. It even features the latest upgrade to roto brush.
Warren Heaton commented
Maybe Adobe could pull images from users? Like... Behance or something?

Now that I think about it, the white background doesn't seem a good idea either.
99% of our apps have a dark gray background, even websites now use a "dark mode", so that we can take care of our eyes with less contrast and luminosity, and most of all, focus on our artwork.
Except when we launch an Adobe Application, with it's eye-burning white.

Also it could be great if the splash screen was made with After Effects, not some fancy 3D software, or Paint.
