  2. After Effects Minimax

    Photoshop has Minimum and Maximum and the option to preserve squareness or roundness.
    Do the same in After effects' Minimax, add an option to preserve roundness, since by default it preserves squareness.

  3. make SET MATTE work as it should

    SET MATTE should work like TRACK MATTES.
    when using a shapelayer as the matte then the effect works fine,
    but not with other footage.

    AND NO.... i don't want to precompose every single s***.....
    Make a Checkbox in the effect: work like TRACKMATTE.....done

  4. Time Remapping doesn't seem to function properly when used with EXR sequences

    Enable Time Remapping doesn't seem to function properly when used with EXR sequences. I rendered a multi-pass EXR sequence from C4D and split it up using ProEXR from fnord. However, in order to save time, I only rendered the frames that had animation on them, figuring I could time remap it in AE to add handles to the beginning and end. Usually, the workflow is to move one frame back set a new key, delete the final time remap key and extend the ending layer. This doesn't work, everything afterwards just shows up black. As a workaround I've had to…

  5. BUG: CC Repetile gives empty pixels gap when applied to an adjustment layer

    When applied to an adjustment layer CC RepeTile generates 2 empty extra pixels between the tiles. This is a bug! The problem is present in both AE 2019 and 2020 versions. When applied directly to the footage it seems to work fine.

  6. A quick color matching function in Lumetri

    After Effects has no quick color matching function for different clips.
    Please integrate a color matching function in Lumetri like you did in Premiere Pro.

  7. Bug Report: Camera Lens Blur "Repeat Edge Pixels" issue

    Camera Lens Blur's "Repeat Edge Pixels" feature doesn't behave as expected along the left edge at small (≤.5 pixel) values. The attached project file shows this behavior, from frame 11 to 30. Above .5 pixels, the feature behaves as expected.

    Adjusting with the Rotation and Aspect Ratio values can change the threshold at which this behavior disappears, but doesn't fix the issue.

    Tested on an updated AE2020 (17.1.4, build 37), Win10 x64. Occurs at all bit depths and compositing modes I could think to try.

    The "Attach a File" thing's being weird, so you can download the file here:

  9. soft light math changed?

    Has the math behind soft light blending mode changed recently? For years, I have used soft light to add effects with a 50% gray solid but now the results are different... I've tested the project settings/color management and can't seem to get this right...

  11. Stamp tool ignores masks&effects when selected different copy source with m&e

    Hello,
    I wanted to remove a tracker with the stamp tool today. But the stamp had to be lightened. Therefore I created a duplicate of the layer and lightened it a little bit with exposure. When I selected the alternative stamp source with effects and masks in the stamp, the effects on the post-exposed layer were ignored. This seems to be a bug. As an alternative I created a precomp and put the effect into it. Version 17.1.3 (Build 41 Windows) Thanks!

  12. VR converter bug?

    When using Fisheye from 2D with VR converter, layers disappear.
    I can avoid this by moving the layer one pixel or more.

  13. Don't require track mattes to be above the layer it modifies (and also allow re-use)

    Requiring a track matte to be right above the layer it modifies seems like an archaic convention at best. Get rid of that requirement and make them like parent layers which can be anywhere and used by many layers.

  14. Hold key frames should disable motion blur for the property

    I really would love to see the option to have hold key frames disable the rendering of motion blur. One example is that I have footage the has a time remap that ramps speed quickly from slow motion to sped up motion. I have masks that need to roto out a couple objects, but the motion blur jumps during the speed changes.this makes me split masks for the speed changes and adds a level of complexity to my comp.

    Another example deals with a workflow that I use regularly that brings several similar shots into one comp so they can…

  15. Parallel Effects Processing

    Similar to workflows in DAW, I'd like to be able to parallel process effects on a layer. Simple things like being able to apply two seperate drop shadows that don't affect each other except when blending back together at the end of the chain. Currently 2 drop shadows in series would create a ghost of the other shadow. There are many more uses for this. The ideal solution of course would be a flowgraph/tree system but that's a lot of restructuring, maybe you could add to the "compositing options" a channel option so you can set them to multiple channels…

  16. Bug: 3D projections are blurry, unless the camera's focal length is very short

    Even with depth of field off, projecting an image onto a solid will result in a much blurrier version of the original image. The shorter the focal length of the camera, the sharper the image will be.

  17. NDI Tools Audio out in After Effects

    Enquiring as to if NDI Audio support is coming for After effects? Currently premiere supports NDI audio and video but AE is video only and no option for audio. This has proven to be a very useful tool during working from home scenarios but audio is needed in After Effects as well.

  20. Make an archive of the AE SDK forum available.

    The old AE SDK forum contained hundreds of threads with valuable information that is not available in the AE SDK guide. Very many of those threads are no longer available at all, and the new interface is no longer navigable because it is not possible to limit searches to posts tagged with 'SDK' or in any other meaningful way. Moreover, questions about the SDK are simply not being answered any more, and there is no other support resource. I don't think I would have been able to get anywhere near where I am now without the help of the forum,…
