Make All Effects 32bit Compatible
I use After Effects for compositing my 3D renders, and I always export 16 or 32 bit EXRs, starting to use ACES. Unfortunately, many, many effects are still only 8 bit, some support 16, and some can do 32. If you don't want to lose me and many other compositors (at least those that are left), please update more effects to 32bit!
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we have moved this feedback to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests are able to live separately in that forum.
This move is happening in part to acknowledge that we haven't been responsive enough on UserVoice, and are combining our forums to help remedy that. Check your profile on the Adobe Support Community to see any migrated posts that you've created or commented on. If you had an item on UserVoice that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

Agreed! Mesh warp, CC composite, Liquify, Extract, 4-color gradient, Vector Blur plugins (amongst others) have been crucial for my compositing workflow, but still don't have 32 bit support.

What do you say to the AE ACES Workflow? :D ...I think 32 Bit Effects are by far not enough. What is with a new and modern color management system, with 100% GPU Support?
Constantin Maier commented
Yes, please!!!! I understand that's probably quite a feat to update all effects to 32 bit (or at least most of them) but being able to work in 32 bit is necessary in compositing nowadays.
Matt Lathrom commented
Especially as people adopt ACES as a workflow, this is much needed.
Gary Noden commented
All the distortion tools should be usable in all colorspaces, but this would be a start
Warren Heaton commented
It would be great to see all of the effects able to render at 32-bit color depth. (I have no clue how big of an ask that is, but it would be nice to simply know that you can set your color depth as needed and forget it.)

Would be nice to work with 32 bit footage and not clamp values when trying to use some effects, namely Liquify.
You could update all the effects to make a precise compatibility between them and 32 bpc footage and compositions.
