Get rid of 'More Options' button in Interpret Footage
Since... well, forever... the 'More Options' button in the Interpret Footage dialog has only ever been applicable to Vector footage (Illustrator/EPS) and then has only ever contained one parameter, the antialiasing quality (correct me if I'm wrong?) As such, it's dumb to have to click a button just to open up ANOTHER dialog that only contains 1 option.
Please move the Antialiasing menu out into the main footage dialog, replacing the More Options button. Ghost it when it's not applicable like everything else.
See attached mockup.
Thanks for filing this request.
The More Options button is used for more than vector files. The most common use case is for raw video formats, such as RED, Arri, Sony, Canon, etc. There are some other cases, but I don’t have them catalogued in my brain.
What I’m hearing from you is that the step to get to specific settings for AI/EPS files is an extra click that you’d rather not do. There’s a variety of ways I imagine we could solve this in the UI, everything from trying to make the Interpret Footage dialog accommodate footage-specific custom panels (difficult), to a more accessible menu command for the More Options button, or something else entirely.
In your ideal world, how would you like to see this work in the UI?

Ahh, OK.. I've not used R3D or any other debayered formats directly in AE so I've never noticed :) In those cases the button makes sense because it leads to large dialogs with a lot more parameters.
But in the case of AI/EPS footage, it's silly that it only contains one parameter (which I go change, almost every single time, to More Accurate) it'd be nice if it were more quickly accessible. Maybe add it to the 'Other Options' section like my mock-up, in addition to keeping the More Options button for the other formats that require more.
