  1. Separate the timeline and the curve editor

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

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. Modernize the "Numbers" effect

    The Number effect is now practically useless, considering it stops at 30.000. It would be nice to have a quick and easy way to make counters with separtors (like in "1,000,000,000", it's kind of annoying having to use an expression for this). Same problem goes with the "time" option : you're pretty much screwed if you need a 1 hour countdown for example.

    I know this can be done with expressions, but it would be nice to have an advanced Numbers effect built in !

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. SVG-Animator / Export an Animation in SVG for Web

    After Effects needs to have an option to export an Animation as SVG.
    SVG in comparison to GIF has much better quality and smaller File Size.

    An option to export animations as SVG would revolutionize everything. For After Effects and Web-Design.

  17. 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.

  18. it would be awesome if AE didn't repeatedly lock up while doing simple tracking.

    I can't even begin to calculate how many times I've had to go into Task Manager to kill After Effects after it locks up doing a simple track.

  19. Automatically make shape layers 3D if camera is present

    I'll often have an animated 3D camera, but when I create a shape layer it is by default a 2D layer. When I make it a 3D layer, the position moves relative to the camera. I don't know how many times I've done a bunch of work to arrange a shape layer, then realized it's not 3D, and then had to reposition it all over again.

  20. Control Curves in Graph Editor without Separating Dimensions

    Being able to set positions keys, then control bezier handles in the graph editor without separating dimensions feels similar to many other graph editor systems. This could also eliminate the issue of tangents creating hard points in the curve because of the "Auto Bezier" interpolation. Allowing you to smooth them out where you see fit.
