  1. Separate Graph editor window

    A separate graph editor window from the keyframe timeline would be great.
    It's such a pain to constantly switch between graph and key frames.

  2. Speed graph - animating unlinked scale X and Y improvements (toggle X and Y priority)

    It is common to animate the scale of an object along one axis (imagine a bar graph animating upward). Of course you do this by unlinking the X and Y scale proportions and increase the Y scale over time. And if you want the animation to be more dynamic you will use the graph editor. This is easily done with the Value graph. However, trying to do this with the Speed graph is very difficult. This is because the X influence is overtop the Y influence - and when you graph the handles of the keyframe in the Speed graph…

  3. Time delay in Shape layer Repeater Properties

    As rotation, postion and opacity... time (in frame) should be a variable that we should be able to work with.

    Should also be affected by the Offset

  5. Pan behind tool is very hard to use with 3d layers.

    It takes multiple tries to grab it. Sudden frustrating problem after today's update.

  8. Separate Dimensions for Camera Point of Interest and Scale

    I really don't know why this feature is not in After Effects after all these years, but it would be so helpful to be able to separate dimensions for Camera Point of Interest and Scale. It is sometimes really hard to animate the camera when you can only separate the position dimensions but not the Point of Interest.

  9. Expose Paragraph Text Box Width/Height for Expressions

    It's currently impossible within expressions to set the width or height of a Paragraph Text box.

    This would be a massively helpful feature for text-based templates and animations.

  11. Trim Paths Delay

    It would be great to be able to set a time delay when using Trim Paths when set to individually. Having the ability to adjust when the next successive path starts would be a huge help.

    Currently when set to animate individually the paths are animated one at a time and ONLY when the previous path has finished. Being able to set that value would be such a time saver.

  12. Separate XYZ axes for Puppet Position Pin Tool animation

    It would be useful if you could separate XYZ axes for more than just position animation. This would be good for anchor point, scale, etc., but particularly for the Puppet Position Pin tool this feels like it ought to be the default. I'm aware of the workaround with linking null position to pin position, but really you shouldn't have to do all that setup just to set an x keyframe to ease in with a y keyframe at linear.

  14. Motion Sketch doesn't play audio

    Motion sketch would be much more useful if one could hear the audio playing as you're performing. At present I'm doing my animation with this functionality in Blender and transferring it back to After Effects with .jsx files, but it would be much more convenient if I could do it all in AE.

  16. Bug: Keyframes lock on copy-and-pasted layers

    When using a layer that has been copied and pasted into a comp -- in my case, from one comp into another, or from a Premiere timeline into an After Effects comp -- the keyframes become "locked". They aren't marked as locked, but they can't be selected, moved, or manipulated in the Curve Editor. They can be changed by moving the playhead over the keyframe and adjusting the parameter under the Layer Controls, but only then. The exact same assets when dragged into a comp from the Project panel do not have this issue, and this issue is repeatable and…

  17. Path display issue

    When you time reverse footage and animate the position, the path does not display, motion paths are turned on. works in all my other layers fine.. just not in the one where the footage is reversed.

  18. Visibile motion paths within Shape Layers

    It would be great to have VISIBLE Motion Paths within shape layers. It would be much easier to animate individual shape groups this way. Currently, animating a shape within a shape group requires expressions and can get messy pretty quickly.

  19. Separating Dimensions Shouldn't Ruin Your Animation Curves

    When you realize you need to separate the dimensions of a layer and you've already done animation on that layer, doing so shouldn't ***** up the work you've already done.

    This is 100% possible. Moho has this capability and it's hobbyist level software.

  20. The Offset filter is broken.

    The Offset filter is broken, and has been broken for a very long time. Here's what I wrote about it on creativecow.com back in 2013:

    "This filter has been buggy for a while. It seems there’s a “magic line” of approximately 32,769, positive or negative, beyond which the Shift Center To parameter fails to work. I’m in a 1920×1080 comp, with a same-sized Photoshop file, rendering at Full quality. Set keyframes at 40,000×540 and -40,000×540. There will be no movement until the Shift Center To value crosses that 32,769 line. Then it will animate, until it reaches -32,769, at which…
