  1. 3D Shape Layers: Repeater in Z space with random properties. Would be amazing!

    This would be amazing if the repeater option could also apply for Z dimension when the layer is turned to 3D. A random option for each dimension would be amazing as well! Especially since the repeater is not available in C4D lite, this would be such a game changer for mograph effects involving basic shapes in 3D! Would be good as the next thing after adding taper options on strokes. It's such a shame that the shapes tools are so under developped in After Effects.

  3. attempt to get an item address from a position outside of list length error (27 :: 15)

    i am unable to edit curves on my keyframes after only a 15 second mark. this is my first attempt in learning animation via after effects. this has seriously disrupted my workflow as i am unable to finish the animation without making it look inconsistent and like a mess past that point. please help, ive tried restarting the application and even my computer and this error is continuously brought up.

    to clarify: i am able to edit the graphs of easy eased keyframes before the 15 second mark. but any new keyframes i create, i am unable to edit the…

  4. Graph editor freezes when switching between value and speed editor

    whenever I switch between "edit value graph" and "edit speed graph," the graph editor gets stuck on whatever layer I'm editing and won't switch to a new layer. Problem persists when reopening project

  5. Show delta time when shifting keyframes

    When shifting a layer in time, I get a useful display in the info panel telling me, how much I have shifted the layer already (delta time). Please give the same info when shifting keyframes. There only the new time of the keyframe is displayed, so I have to remember the old time and do the math to know, how much the keyframe was shifted.

  6. Text Wrap feature similar to Illustrator

    Text Wrap feature in Illustrator will dynamically wrap text around a mask you draw maybe around a feature or object. In After Effects we are stuck with point text or paragraph text, paragraph being a strict rectangle. Being able to break that barrier dynamically would be super helpful

  7. maintain stroke width WITHOUT expressions.

    At the moment, if i wish to scale a path / several paths , while maintaining the same stroke width - i need to mark all the "stroke width" parameters, link them all to a certain null, and use that null to scale the objects.

    this gets very very uncomfortable when dealing with a lot of objects.

    its about time that after effects will have that feature built in!
    same as in illustrator ( where you can maintain the stroke width with a single click)

    come on adobe. MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

  8. Masks should have a keyframeable transforms

    Currently you have to animate the mask "Path" in order to achieve any translation. However when doing roto/tracking it would be extremely handy to be able to separately keyframe translation from the mask path. For example when applying tracking data to a mask you could track just the position and keyframe the mask path separately. Similarly when using the "mask tracker" the results are virtually unusable for any detailed roto work because you end up with a keyframe on every frame, therefore any manual edits cause popping in the animation. With the addition of position, rotation and scale it would…

  10. set matte

    I have great idea for something that's been lacking for a long time - how about your team implement the basic features people have been requesting for years rather than relying on flashy new features that make for good marketing. I think this would be a something to really think about for future releases so that long-term users like me aren't constantly googling "After Effects alternatives" and looking longingly at how free programmes like Blender listen to the community.

  11. Option to parent individual shape layer vertices to the vertices of other shapes

    It would be great if we could manipulate and parent specific vertices within shape layers to other vertices on other shape layers (rather than using Puppet Pins or third party scripts)

  12. Add shortcut to add a keyframe to path property

    I just want to select a layer then hit ALT+(a key) which adds a keyframe to the path property. It's really tiresome first selecting a layer then having to search for the path property. Then having to drag a rectangle over the path properties. Then adding a keyframe. Especially when there's many path to one layer.

    It works brilliantly with the other properties eg. ALT+P to add a position keyframe at the CTI.

    Also… At the moment the cursor sticks (on Mac) for 2-3 second when dragging rectangles over anything in the timeline.

    Cheers!

  13. Addig "hue" as a text animation property does not add a new range selector

    Addig "hue" as a text animation property does not add a new range selector. Instead it gets added to the previously added range selector.

  14. BUG: Parenting a layer to a layer with a scale of zero does not retain child transform

    If a layer is parented to a layer with with a 0% keyframe scale, the child layer does not retain its transform, but snaps to the position/scale of the parent. The only way to avoid this is to make the scale greater than zero before parenting, in which case the child layer retains its transform properly

  15. Fix graph editor easy-ease curve kinks for key-framed properties

    When a third keyframe is added to a property that is easy-eased, a kink is created in the curve that cannot be modified. Current work arounds involve separating dimensions and then manually adjusting curve handles in the value graph, destroying the original curves. The current process ruins smooth animations and has existed for years. This is a basic function and needs to be fixed.

  16. Add end of stroke feathering for shapes.

    Add end of stroke feathering for shapes: it would be great to have feathering available for the end of strokes on "Trim Paths" "Dashes" and any other stroke.

  17. Make Composition-/Layer-Lentgh editable via script or Essential Graphics

    Would be great to get control over layer or composition length via expressions like a slider. Maybe let us set start- and end-points so that if you change the time-length in Essential-Graphics we could shorten the composition in Premiere as well and some other use cases.

  18. Lock Animated Properties to adjust entire animations

    Currently, if you have an animation on a keyframable transform property, modifying the entirety of that animation involves one of at least three workarounds:


    1. Precomp the layer

    2. Attach the Layer to a Null

    3. Select all keyframes, make sure the marker is on one of the keyframes and then make the adjustment.

    This is fine, unless you end up having multiple layers that you need to adjust on the whole while retaining their animations.

    For example, let's say I have a falling object that has position and rotation, but I eventually want to use that same object and animation multiple times…

  19. duplicate frame

    BUG REPORT: After Effects seems to randomly disregard layer order and Z space position, particularly on any camera move, X Y or Z. One kind of fix is to put empty adjustment layers over the artwork layers. Which is so, so far from ideal. Ridiculous.

  20. motion blur

    Bug Report:

    Motion blur causes odd transparency and layer order issues with objects being blurred seemingly at random. Precomping is no good because it ruins other effects, like Set Matte and continuous raster.
