  1. Fix Render Settings bug when queueing multiple frame ranges

    When adding multiple frame ranges from the same composition to the render queue, the render settings do not retain the correct frame ranges for each item in the queue.

    For example:
    Submit frame range 0-200 and then submit frame range 200-400 from the same composition. Check the render settings for each item in the queue. Notice that the frame range for both items in the queue is now the same. Unique frame ranges are not retained.

  2. Pick Whip

    In the new Properties Panel in the beta version, it would be nice to be able to pick whip directly from the properties panel.

  3. After Effects 22.5 Build 53 on M1 MBP

    I wasn't able to save. I had no other application open or running. And I just wasn't able to save. I tried every possible of saving and it just would not save. Now I lost one hour of progress and there was nothing I could do...
    I also couldn't find any articles on the Adobe Support covering this issue...

  6. Layer Aliases

    How great would it be to have the ability to create Aliases (or Instances) of Layers?
    These Layers (with the name Italized) should dynamically reflect the exact RGBA content of their original.

    Would save a lot of copying, expressions etc. And would be a nice hybrid of node based and layer based compositing.

  8. Pickwhipping Keyframes

    What if we could drag the pickwhip to a keyframe and get a reference to it in an expression? For example:

    thisComp.layer(1).transform.rotation.key(1);

  9. Fix contextual menus in AE 2022

    Contextual menus have been around for a decade, but with AE 2022 they have stopped working. It is impossible to work in AE without them, "reveal in project", "reveal in finder". The menus flash up and disappear with no ability to select anything. So, nobody is testing this program? Mac OS Monterey 12.3.1, Intel 2020 iMac, AE 22.3.

  10. AE Bug - Cannot Parse Shape on Clipboard

    Every time I have an Illustrator shape on the clipboard, After Effects displays the "Cannot Parse Shape on Clipboard." I'm not trying to paste anything into AE, but the error comes up every time I attempt to do anything in AE. The only way I've found to avoid this is to go to a text editor and copy some text to the clipboard. Then the error doesn't appear in AE.

  11. sourceRectAtTime parameter to disregard descenders on text layers

    It would be incredibly helpful to be able to disregard descenders (possibly also ascenders) when measuring the height of a text layer with sourceRectAtTime, possibly with a new parameter – something like sourceRectAtTime().textHeight.

    This would be useful, for instance, when creating rectangles to act as text boxes.

  12. Bug: Wiggle() extends outside its amplitude range

    I noticed wiggle() sometimes goes outside the amplitude range.

    For example, wiggle(50, 5) can exceed above 5 and below -5.

    In the comments I attached a screenshot which shows an example case of when this happens.

  13. Cannot save AE project: "Could not rename the file" shows temporary file name

    Hi,
    I am using After Effects V22.01 on Windows 10.
    Lately I have not been able to save my project. It works for a while, then suddenly the problem occurs. I am saving to a AVID server disk.
    The error message reads, "After Effects warning: Could not rename the file 'Y:....<nameOfProject>.4888.8984.aep' to '<nameOfProject.aep'. The number are added by After Effects and seems to be some sort of temporary name? I have to save as to get this working.

  15. After Effects not exporting to Media Encoder when the project is located on OneDrive

    I have a whole project (Folders, Subfolders, etc) saved on OneDrive. When I try exporting the After Effects file with Media Encoder it fails to export & I can't even change setting (the error message “could not read from source. Please check the settings and try again.” appears). I´ve never had this problem before.
    I’m guessing it’s the combinations of After Effects and OneDrive. But I’m clueless as of why & how to fix this? Does anyone have an idea?

  16. Access to the data of Undo command via scripting

    Access to the data of Undo command via scripting.

    If developer have access to undo data, we could Undo an action by separate composition or something more precise.
    Many possibilities with that.
    Sometimes you do things in a precomp, change something in an other precomp but you made a midstake in the first precomp but you can't undo just your first change.

  17. Error message with AE 2022

    AE 2022 is unstable and have bugs. It keeps cashing and sometimes just won't opening, I have to force quit and restart.
    I also got this error message when opening a specific project :
    "Internal verification error, sorry! [no current context]".
    I tried to reinstall AE, did not work, then I reinstalled CC desktop and all my app, and I still got this message.
    I was hoping today's update was going to fix that, but no, I still got the error.
    I had to downgrade AE to the previous version and now everything's fine. I miss the good old times…
