  1. Add a "flip" checkbox to Auto-orient along path.

    Simple enough. Saves me from having to do it manually.

  2. Ability to mute Keyframes

    In C4D you can 'mute' keyframes - essentially this acts like deleting the keyframe except that a dummy 'reference' key is left there, perhaps greyed out, that stores the value(s) and interpolations it had before it was muted. Keyframes to either side behave exactly as if it was not there, until it is un-muted.

  3. Gradient Along a Stroke of a Shape Layer

    Would love to be able to make the stroke of a Shape Layer a gradient. Even if it was just a two-color gradient from one end to the other, that would be great. If it could be RGB and Alpha, even better! The gradient could be oriented from one end of the spline to another, or along the width of the stroke.

  4. Expression not always work

    Error with this expression: fadeDur = .5; ease(time,outPoint,outPoint-fadeDur,100,0), not always work, trying to fade out a layer by applying it to the opacity parameter and it does not work.

  5. Disable different axises for 3d rotation / rotate one axis only

    For animation comps with cameras obviously my layers need to be 3d, which makes rotation in the composition window annoying. When I'm animating a character in 2d it's quick and easy to press W and rotate in the comp view, but if the layer is 3d it's tricky to get the right point to rotate in 3d space. In fact, I NEVER do transformations on 3d layers in the comp window because it's an unusable mess - I always dial in the numerical numbers, which is much slower.

    I would love to be able to easily rotate just one axis…

  6. Keyframes in the curve editor do not have smooth curves

    When animating assets in AE, anytime there are close keyframes together in the timeline, the curves never allow you to set the correct path (screen shot attached). I have 4 assets I'm animating in the same position, but are growing in size. Each of the assets wobble out of place, instead of giving me a stagnant position. I've never dealt with this in any other animation program (Maya, Cinema 4D, Apple's Motion, etc...).
    The only way around this, is to separate the values in order to animate them properly, which I find to be a huge hassle. I do several…

  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. Bug: Editing Path and Pasting into Position Value, Doesn't Create Keyframes

    When creating a path, if you copy the path and paste it into the position value, it creates key frames along that path. However, if you decide you want to edit the shape of the path using the selection tool, before copying and pasting it into the position value, it doesn't create key frames anymore, it just duplicates the path.

  13. automatic quantizing of keyframes

    Switching from 24 to 23.976 is crushing me. I would love a preference to automatically quantize keyframes perhaps project-wide.

  14. Animate separate parts of single source text with normal transform key frames.

    I want to edit one text layer to only animate parts of the text. For example, to fade in certain parts of a paragraph or to bring parts in from out of frame. Instead of having to copy the same text layer and take more time to re-align all the text as if it was never multiple layers. Just by adding more options that can be keyframed underneath the source text option or by making separate masks in the source text options to control the separate text elements.

  17. Text animator selector based on Paragraphs

    Currently text animators can select based on characters, words and lines. The ability to select by paragraph would be extremely useful for things like slideshow bullet points.

    The current workaround involves manually splitting up paragraphs, positioning them, and key-framing them independently. This is quite time consuming.

  18. Parent keyframes to markers

    A way to parent multiple keyframes to layer markers would be fantastic. For example, having several animations that use multiple properties with different start points across a number of layers, it becomes laborious to adjust all of the timings quickly. Moving a layer marker and adjusting all of the keyframes, while keeping the timing the same between them, would be very handy! The plugin Animation Composer from MrHorse has this functionality already, but you can only do it with the set animations within the plugin.

  19. 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…

  20. Certify the Quadro RTX 4000 gpu

    Hola estimados.
    Tengo una gpu Quadro RTX 4000, como no está certificada no me permite hacer raytracing en after effects.
    Mi pedido es que se proceda a la certificación de dicha tarjeta, ya que es especialmente orientada hacia el raytracing.
    Cordiales saludos y gracias.
