  1. mgJSON schema full of typos and errors.

    Hi, I am working with the JSON schema that defines the format for mgJSON files. I took the schema from the Sensor Manager SDK (https://console.adobe.io/downloads/ae).

    It turns out many keys in the document have spelling mistakes, so one never knows if the keys should be kept as they are or not. For example: hasExpectedFrequecyB, #/definitions/dyamicDataType, occuring

    Besides that, when using a JSON schema validator to validate some input against the schema, the validator will complain about multiple design flaws in the original document.

    Finally, the documentation Adobe provides regarding the mgJSON format is close to non existing. People…

  2. Even Dashes on stoked paths to match Illustrator

    It would be awesome if After Effects handled dashed lines the same way Illustrator does with the option to force dashes to be symmetrical with the corners.

    Thanks!

  3. Restore the full support of the Animation Codec

    In the 15.1 release After Effects removed the support for the Animation Codec with delta frames. It continues to support the Animation Codec without delta frames. This is an option within the codec window to set keyframes and it is checked by default. I would ask that both the non-keyframe and the keyframe option in the Animation codec be restored. Many of us 3D animators use the codec in it's default mode (delta enabled) and it would be very time consuming to transcode all out work. Thanks

    Thank you for filing this request.

    We have logged an internal feature request for adding support to the Animation codec for both encoding and decoding delta frames (a.k.a, the “Key frame every X frames” option). It is currently under review for future updates to the Adobe DVA products. At this time I can not share a timeline for when this might happen.

  4. Bring back curve editors in the timeline stack

    A long time ago, AE had the ability to show and edit multiple, separate velocity curves in the timeline stack, just like C4D still does. The graph editor is really bad at showing your curves in the context of other properties' keyframes. Switching to this separate window always gives me a sudden feeling of disconnect and unwanted focus, which is usually not what I want when tweaking interpolations. I'd love to keep the graph editor around, I just wish we had the old method as well.

  5. Simple Modifier to Easing - More Ease or Less Ease

    F9 and Shift F9 (I have set to easy-ease in/out) is the most used key on my keyboard. How about Instead of opening curve editor and clicking and dragging to modify the ease-in and out, you just press it again, to incrementally add a little more ease, and maybe have a modifier key to subtract a little ease. Easy enough right?

  6. Motion Sketch Audio Broken

    At some point you broke Motion Sketch so you don't hear any audio when you're recording. This is totally unacceptable and really messes up my workflow. Please fix it.

  7. Separate the timeline and the curve editor

    It would be really helpful to be able to animate seeing both at the same time...

  8. Dynamic Keyframes

    Would like to use expressions to assign a value to a specific keyframe.

  9. overhaul text animators

    I don't use text animators very regularly, but whenever I do I have to remind myself how they work with a tutorial. They feel like they were created long ago and they're really not intuitive to use. I'm not sure what the solution is but I feel like they could do with reviewing and I feel like the best option would be to start from scratch.

  10. FFD: Free Form Deformation

    In most 3d programs (3dsmax, c4d...maya) there is an FFD tool that allows you to set a cage that causes deformation when the affected object passses through it. the cage position is independent of the object. This allows you to deform the object as it passes through the cage--picture a thick viscous fluid squeezing to fit through a funnel and then regaining its former shape once out of the funnel. Pixels are affected as they pass through the cage.

    Current options like puppet and mesh warp's positions are tied to your object and cant achieve this same effect.

  11. Play background video while moving the Puppet tool (Ctrl)

    MAny times the Tracking tool isn't tracking perfectly and we need to move the objects we want to sync, frame by frame.
    This could have been easily fixed if there was an option to play our background video while moving the pin of the Puppet tool by pressing the Ctrl Key.
    This way you could have saved us HOURS of editing by just let us hold and move the objects along with the video.
    Without that option, this feature (of pressing the Ctrl button and animate) is basically useless.

    Really hope that you'll make it happen.
    I really think it…

  12. Remove limit on Slider Expression Control

    Remove the "million" limit on the Slider Expression Control. I use the slider to animate numbers in a text layer and I'd rather use the slider control instead of the point control. Thanks!

  13. Fix Motion path bezier handles

    Fix the way motion path bezier handles work so it is more intuitive.

    No After Effects I don't want these two keyframes which are right on top of each other to move. I Just want them to hold in the one position.

    Example: https://imgur.com/a/li3eC

  14. features removed

    It is beyond me why Adobe would remove features. In the least there should be an easy work around, and not force you through hoops (re-installing old versions, encoding multiple times, etc.). These are features I have been using for 20+ years and to suddenly remove them is very disruptive. At least provide a conversion app. I think Adobe and Apple are still not getting along.

  16. "Convert to editable text" Sempre que clico, o After Effects CC 2019 fecha do nada. Não consigo usar, o que posso fazer?

    Tenho um arquivo do PSD com texto criado no PSD, não está rasterizado.

  17. Shape layer fill effects

    There are fx on shape layers to control the path/stroke (trim path, punk bloat, etc) but there's no fx that control fill. It'd be great to be able to apply fx under Effect->Transition to the fill. Or have it's own set of fx (linear wipe, iris, radial, dissolve, barndoor, etc)

  18. can't move newly added keyframe

    I just added a new keyframe on a layer (Time Remapping) and at first I couldn't even select it (well I COULD select every other keyframe to the left and to the right of it on the same property, Time Remap). I deleted it (using the wave form view and box-selecting it) and added a new one. Not this I could select, but I could not move it at all. Again - all other keyframes on the same property and on the same layer, left and right to it, could be easily moved as expected. But the newly created one…

  19. rounded corners

    Would be great to have live corners the same as Illustrator, so the attached shape can be created and each corner radius animated independently.

  20. Make the shortcuts for Ease keyframes actually work

    The 3 keyboard shortcuts to set Easing motion (F9 for EasyEase, ShiftF9 for EaseIn and ShiftCmdF9 for EaseOut) do not work like expected.

    E.g. when a keyframe is already Easing in, ShiftCmdF9 results in an EasyEase keyframe, in stead of switching to EaseOut.
    It adds the EaseOut to the EaseIn.

    These shortcuts would be of more use when doing what is promised.
