  1. Give us the ability to export .mogrt files for older versions of Premiere.

    It would be great to be able to create motion graphics files for older versions of Premiere.

  2. Reverse Keyframes button

    How about a button to reverse selected keyframes to create a reverse of your animation

  3. After Effects doesn't properly support SWF import from Adobe Animate

    This would be a great feature but it doesn't work very well! Advanced layers don't work properly, some types of easing don't display correctly, and nested/masked layers don't display correctly (see attached screenshot).

    Please implement it properly!

  4. Speed graph editor: 'View speed curves as absolute values' option

    In the speed graph editor: Can we get a 'View velocities as absolute values' option please. This way increasing the speed on multiple keys does exactly that, regardless of the negative or positive value of the key speed.

    Ie, for 2 shapes moving left and right, their X position speed curves are negative (for left) and positive (for right).

  5. How do you think if you put bitmap drawing on After Effect?

    I use After Effect 3 years, I work on animation and I realize that I and my colleagues all want to paint directly on my work, but I don't want to switch to other software because it's quite inconvenient! So what do you think about this issue? put bitmap drawing in AE, draw on comp, trans layer (not solid layer), ....

  7. Align Stroke : To Center, To Inside, To Outside

    It would be great to incorporate the already perfected technology of aligning strokes to paths based on:

    1) Path Center
    2) Path Inside
    3) Path Outside

    This is an amazing feature of Illustrator, and for incorporating industry standard workflow from Illustrator to After Effects, its strange this feature does not exist, especially when motion graphics artists often use shape layers for their vector based mechanics and not pixel based.

    1 great example of how not aligning stroke paths in Ae limits users is if you wanted to radially wipe a circle in After Effects. Sure, you can use the radial…

  9. Control timeline properties from the effects panel - Effects panel to Properties panel

    Camera layers, Lights, Sound, these layers will never have effects applied to them, why would we display an empty effects panel and waste AE screen real-estate, while it could be the perfect place to control the properties for these layers?

    Think about other properties like shape layers for example and how easy it would be to just control their properties in the effect/properties panel!

    Here is how that could work: http://www.sandervandijk.tv/after-effects-features/effects#property-controls

  10. Feather Trim Paths

    Adding a "feather" option to the trim path effect. It seems like there is no simple way to achieve this effect that a lot of people are struggling to create.

    Having the option to animate lines with a feathered trail would be a tremendous asset to everyone, instead of having to resort to complicated workarounds.

    Thank you.

  11. Coloured Keyframes

    The same way we colour our layers to keep track of categories, let us do that with our keyframes when we have a lot of them on one layer for example. Can't imagine this is very hard to do.

  12. Some sort of shape hit system (similar to adobe animate) that can dictate the interpolation of a mask or shape path!

    When doing character animation, you frequently have to interpolate between two shapes. Like arm shapes or face shapes, these shapes are typically pre designed by artist and when you try to interpolate between two separate paths you end up with a jumbled mess as the keys try to match the path direction and first path point; it typically results in needing to morph the pre existing path into the shape of the new one and even then you still have to hope the program determines the right placement. So it would be nice to have more control!

  13. shape layer(シェイプレイヤー)

    I'm glad if I can set the initial settings of the shape layer myself. (line width, line combination, etc.)

  14. Expand motion sketch capabilities by including recording on shape and mask paths

    Expand "motion sketch" capabilities by including cursor recording on shape and mask paths. This case we can animate a shape/mask point just by dragging our cursor.

  15. Insert or remove time at Current Time Indicator

    Back in the Flash days, you've had put the current time indicator of a certain place in the timeline and hit F5 and it would insert frames and push everything after the current time indicator back in time. Hold shift F5 and it would insert 10 frames at a time, pushing everything back in time after the current time indicator. To me it's unbelievable that after effects has no support for inserting or removing time within a timeline. Many times I've had clients want to insert or remove something in a long complicated timeline, and it takes me the whole…

  16. Warn the user if looping frames are not lined up correctly...

    I create a lot of looping animations. Loops only work if the last frame is lined up perfectly with the first frame so that it can play through seamlessly. Could you provide a warning prior to rendering to let the user know if the loops are not lined up? Thanks.

  18. Frame by Frame in AE!

    I was thinking about making frame by frame on AE, I tried using Paint and Stick, but at work it was quite slow, lag => I didn't like it! I have thought of one way to work both software at the same time as AE and Photoshop, but it came up with one thing: I have a 3-layer psd file, import into AE into each layer, then, I create 1 4th layer in PTS, paint on it and save, but in AE do not create that 4th layer! I know this is impossible! But do you think there is a…

  19. [BUG] Property or method names 'style' in Class 'TextProperty' is missing

    Please make Javascript the default expression engine. Otherwise the new expression abilities that came out with AE 2020 are unavailable.

    If any of you are trying to access the new 2020 text expression items, make sure to go to your project settings -> expressions -> Javascript

  20. Set Legacy Puppet Engine to Default

    Advanced puppet engine is rubbery and starch is ineffective. Puppet meshes often break when switching from Advanced to Legacy engine.

    I'd love the ability to set the Legacy engine as default, and see continued support for the legacy puppet engine in releases down the road.
