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.17 votes
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.3 votes
Using trim paths, I'm trying to animate a shape stroke that has a taper added to the start and end of the stroke. Taper is calculated relative to the length of the stroke, which AE recognises as changing according to the percentage completion of the trim paths.
This might be what you'd want some of the time, but I just want to animate the stroke like a pen mark being written on. The line left by a pen nib would not be shifting its thickness as it is being drawn on.2 votes
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.3 votes
It is long overdue to provide a direct export option either through the Adobe Media Encoder or Render Queue to render out a sequence as an Animated PNG and also Animated SVG formats as these are now more and more required for many web applications. It would save a lot of time in a workflow to have to export as a png sequence then use a third party application to import the png sequence and then export as an APNG.5 votes
I know you guys are looking to improve the software and make it better, faster and up today but eliminating components such as ray trace is not a good move nor a good decition just because you let MAXON 4D to do just half of what we were able to do with ray trace. i dont think that removing ray trace is big of improvement but rather a move backwards forcing us to use tools that can do just half the work done as we previously had it. there is a big comunity out there expecting this option is available once more.

Some of our old plugins and presets still working only with 3d-ray tracing.
not only me I know lots of people who need this.

Please fix Motion Sketch. The Audio has been broken for FIVE YEARS.
I have to record the video on my phone, play it back and start the recording and the motion sketch at the same time just to work around this issue.5 votes
new issue in 17.6
I connect some text layer to a null, without any expression. (I use parent connexion).
Then I move the null (2d/3d motion/scale whatever) and nothing happen in the render. I tried to Clean cashs, change preview quality... The only solution is to restart AE and the action takes place.
note: I Didn't have the issue with footage layer yet.1 vote
Not even sure if this is possible, but, being able to lock the point in an animation that you are viewing while adjusting a keyframe either before or after where the current time indicator is placed.
I've been working on a big animation project and want to time things out that enter the frame and often have those objects outside of the camera view and am trying to key multiple object timings together at certain points.2 votes

After Effects /// For several months now, it has been taking too long to save a project (.aep).
This problem began in March 2019, when I was using CC 2015.
I have updated the program but the problem still continues: CC 2017, CC2018, CC2019, 2020.
In previous versions, saving the project only took a few seconds. Now, it takes more than a minute.2 votes
Can we add group name rename option, It will very help full to know multiple groups via its name, i know i can do while creating layout or character in adobe illustrator I can give layers name and import in to after effect and convert illustrator layers to "create shapes from vector layer" with its original name, but inside the particular layer, there are multiple groups, which I need to rename the layers name. Please find the attached screen shot.

I do a lot of detailed facial tracking for my content. It would literally save me days of work if AE was able to track face points as quickly as CH does.3 votes
For rigging and organization purposes, importing should be more tight. I guess every program in Suite can be integrated properly.
When you "export as" ai to psd, for instance, you find every path created on illustrator in a folder/subfolder inside the layers tab on photoshop.
This could be really useful if you prepare a tons of bones and parts in a rig workflow inside illustrator and try to import this project inside after effects.
In a nutshell, you should be able to import AI layers in After effects as precomps.6 votes
Strokes in shape layers should have a customisable end cap, rather than the three simple options currently available.
Strokes in shape layers currently offer three options for the end cap. It would be great if the end cap were customisable, either via beziers or with an importable artwork. This would make stroke animation much more powerful and useful.3 votes
I really miss being able to see the motion graph under the keyframes. You used to be able to toggle open the graph for keyframes right in the main timeline and it was super useful.
Please add that back in as an option. I like the separate Graph Editor but sometimes I want to see how the graph relates to all the other keyframes around it in time. In the Graph Editor, you can only see them with their values and it gets really messy, visually.1 vote
It would be great if there was a function to convert a text into paths (just like in Illustrator), so I can create a graffiti painting animation for example. I know that I could trace the text by path, but it would be fine, or rather it would save a lot of time.1 vote
