  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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)

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

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

  17. 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), ....

  18. 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).

  20. 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…
