    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    It would be helpful if we could see screenshots of the problem (with and without the shift) and/or a project that demonstrates the issue.

    Post a link to your files here, or if you prefer not to post publicly you can send it to aebugs@adobe.com. (If you send to that address: A) Do not send .zip files, they will be blocked; renaming to .thisisazipfile is OK. B) Post a comment here when you have sent the email. I need to manually check that inbox.)

  2. Allow track mattes to be used multiple times

    Track mattes should be able to be used by multiple other layers and no longer required to live directly above they layer they affect.

    It's very common to need to reuse a matte. The way things are now, I have to duplicate my mattes for every single layer that uses them.

    I should just be able to select which layer I want to use as a matte (along with alpha/luma options) and be able to reuse that matte for as many other layers as needed.

  4. track matte per effect

    The possibility to add mask per effects through the compositing options was a great addition would be great to be also able to choose another layer as a track matte for each effect the way set matte works.

  6. PLANAR TRACKING/STABILIZING AS MOCHA

    You could improve the After Effects tracking/stabilizing tools using the planar tracking method (as Mocha) instead of traditional point tracking method.

  8. *********IMPORTANT:https://www.behance.net/gallery/67706495/Adobe-Lumetri-CC-Prototype

    But NO as another app. It needs to be an improved version of Lumetri modules of After Effects and Premiere Pro, because of the Adobe fluid (non destructive) workflow. It has more sense than developing another kind of Speed Grade as another one app:(. All in one is really better ;)

  9. Enable any effect to address an individual RGBA channel

    Some effects, like Levels and Curves, allow one to isolate the effect to a single RGBA channel. Make this option available to all effects.

  10. Add a feature to allow the user add shape to a light.

    Add a cutting option in the Light Settings window that allows the user cut the light source using four shutters. It should also allow rotation of the shape.
    Another idea would be to allow the user place a shape inside the light - a Gobo projection?
    Look forward to seeign this feature added in the future.

  13. Global Volume Adjustment

    Add audio levels adjustment functionality to Adjustment Layers. It would work just like for a video clip, in that it would be keyframable, but it would affect the volume of any layers beneath it. It would be great if it could also display a composite waveform of all the layers affected.

  14. Radio Wave improvement

    In Radio Waves, it would be nice if the "Reflection" parameter offered the choice of which sides of the screen would reflect: top, bottom, left, right or any combo.

  15. An improved Stylize/Glow

    The current (and past) Stylize/Glow effect shows some unlogical behavior:

    1 It lets glow dark colors (under the treshold) too.
    Even when the Glow Operation is set to 'Add' and Glow Is Based on Color Channels (Default), a dark shadow like halo appears around the borders of a layer.

    2 Another strange thing: When Glow Intensity is set to 0 (zero), the black glow still appears.

  16. Increase the Brush Size limit (200.00) on the Generate ⮞ Stroke Effect.

    As I am an animator of logos, I use the stroke effect very often, but sometimes when the resolution should be bigger I need more than the limit (200.00). Then I simply can't make that animation in big resolution.

    Then what can I tell my buyers?

    Here is what I experience:

  17. Use aerial images to help 3D tracking

    When tracking drone aerial footage, it would be helpful if you could use an aerial image to help the 3D tracker. My thoughts about how this would work would be to add the 3D tracker to footage and load an aerial image of the location being tracked. As the tracker is analyzing the footage you indicate in the footage where points exist on the aerial image. This could help with tricky to track footage, specifically if you’re dealing with pans, as it could help the tracker understand how the scene is rotating and moving.

    The attached image is from some…

  18. Switch to ignore DOF on 3D layer

    I suggest to make a switch on 3D layers, so DOF do not apply to this layer.
    Just like the "do not accept light / shadows" settings.

    This can be used if you enable DOF in a comp, but have a layer that needs to be sharp all the time anyway.

  19. CC Vignette bug

    I''ll often add the CC Vignette effect to an imported .AI layer to help it blend into the scene. It's very helpful in not adding additional clutter to compositions, but it increasingly makes scenes go crazy. Different zoom levels will exacerbate the bug, and saving and reopening with the effect applied seems to make it worse.

    Some of the symptoms include weird screen tearing, little dots all over the comp, and the layer will "flicker" on and off as well as affecting the alpha channels on other layers.

    I've attached a quick sample. This mostly shows everything but the tearing.

  20. set matte, set channels, calculations,etc to treat & take in an account layer's own transforms.

    Set Matte ignores if the layer had been transformed in some way when it is used as a track matte for ex, it treats its transformrs as well, but any matte options in any effect would ignore original transformations if there is any...
