  1. Make animation presets compatible with Essential Properties

    It would be amazing to be able to save and apply animation presets to Essential Properties. This would be a game changer for character animation. We could save frequently used poses or short animations as presets and apply them quickly.

  2. Bug on boot

    After Effects is slowly becoming a nightmare to use. I now have to reinstall it after every restart on my Mac as all the plugins become unresponsive. I've tried cleaning Adobe completely but it does the same thing every time I restart.

    Thank you for filing this bug.


    I was able to reproduce this behavior and have sent this bug to our developers to evaluate.


    Note that this problem only occurs when:

    • You drag via the selection box in the Graph Editor view
    • One of the keyframes is adjacent to a roving keyframe.


    The problem can be avoided by clicking and dragging on one of the keyframes instead of within the selection box.

  4. Revamp the graph editor, make it like cinema 4d.

    Revamp the graph editor, it's been dated for over a decade.
    It's limited and a pain to work in.

    Give it the features, speed and flexibility like the graph editor in cinema4d.

  5. Bring back the .flv codec

    The old .flv codec that was discontinued years ago is truly a revolutionary codec that can make a standard alpha animation that would normally range anywhere from 200MB to several gigs into less than 10mb. There is still television software like JVC that uses that old format. I understand that flash had security issues and other problems, but as for the codec, it was the only alpha channel codec that made picture perfect animations even smaller in size than most non-alpha codecs. There is no danger for hacking a movie file. For this reason, for internal performance of your own…

  6. Graph Editor: Show tool tip for Speed and Influence on mouse-hover over curve handles

    TL;DR
    Make the box that shows Speed and Influence in the graph editor show up when I hover my mouse over a keyframe handle, not just when I click and drag it.

    When doing custom curves for keyframes in the graph editor, I will manipulate the handles on a keyframe to set the Influence factor I want. When going back to tweak a handle, it would be nice to be able to see what setting it is currently sitting at without having to either move the handle to check, then undoing the change; or right-clicking the keyframe and selecting Keyframe…

  7. Slider commas and decimal places option

    I know you can use an expression but it would be nice to have more options in the slider for commas, decimal points, min to max and even a unit before or after the number.. (for us editors who don’t use AE that much!).. how about it?

  8. animation preset is not working

    hey it's not taken me 20 mins from clicking report a bug to dive thorugh a dozen pages where I've not been able to just report the bug, so marvel at my herculean effort to not FBOMB my way through this 'feedback'

    the text animation presets don't seem to be working in latest AE. I'm on mac osx Big Sur. I'm trying to apply the fade up characters preset and it's giving me some error about the null at line 1 isn't an object or something....

  9. Give option to make Continuous Locking (Ongoing to Incoming) by default when keyframes are eased

    It could be great to add a button in the preferences panel for example to allow us to set eased keyframes on "Continuous (Lock Ongoing to Incoming)". Depends of project type but in animation, it's like mandatory to put this setting on if you want a smooth speed changes.
    To smooth the speed changes we need to move up and down keys and to stretch ankles, but by default ongoing and incoming points are not linked, and when you got hundreds or thousands of keys in you project, you can imagine the time lost in this “double click keyframe and…

  12. camera tracker

    Camera Tracker - turn of/on automatic solve
    create a way to turn on/of the resolve camera. when deleting multiple points in time, it takes to long because of the automatic solve update.
    if its possible to select all the points, delete them, and then solve camera at will, it will be great. Thanks

  13. In the Graph Editor, add a handle between two eased keys to increase/decrease the easing

    Hi,

    I think it could be a time killer to add a new handle between two eased keys in the Graph editor. It would allow us to pull/push the influence handles of the two keys (between the two keys - influence out key 1 and influence in key 2) in a homogeneous way. About the same use of the rounded corner tool in Illustrator...

    It's needs time to copy/paste value from influence handles, and the possibility to edit it visually would be awesome.

    I put an exemple of how it could be.

    Thanks

  14. Time Stretch using expressions

    I'm looking for a way to edit the Layer Time Stretch value using expressions.
    It's easy to get the value, but couldn't find a way to edit it.

  15. 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.

  16. ALT+CTRL drag on selected keyframes re-times from centre of key's

    The option to Alt+Ctrl drag keyframes and have them retime from the centre rather than the start or end.

    Often, you have an animation happening at a certain time, maybe text in and text out. And it would be MUCH more convenient to retime keyframes from the centre, not the start or end.
    Having a modifier for this, so ALT does normal behaviour, ALT + CTRL re-times keyframes from the centre - almost like it does when holding CTRL while scaling a mask or path selection.

  17. 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.

  18. Please Include Blend Modes as supported properties within Essential Graphics

    I was surprised to find that there is no way to include blend modes in your essential graphics both when building in AE and building in PR. The only property is opacity which does not tick all the boxes blend modes can. I even tried workarounds to find channel effects with blend modes as options and could not find one. I think this would be a simple addition that would have a large positive impact.
