  1. AFTER EFFECTS 2021 18.4.1 Bug > Not relinking / replacing missing files

    After effects version 18.4.1 stopped replacing missing files as before:

    1 - In previous versions when you replaced a missing file that is located in the same folder as other missing files in the project, AE would smartly re-link all files at once.

    Now it is not doing this anymore.

    2- In previous versions if on the Project panel search bar, you typed "missing"or even just "miss" it would show all missing media in your project, regardless of what type of media it is. Now you can only view missing media by specifically typing "missing footage"or "missing fonts" ", "missing…

  2. Farsi numbers issue in Essential Graphics

    There is a bug preventing Farsi text output from Essential graphics text output.

    After entering / pasting Farsi numbers into Essential Graphics input text box, they automatically turn into English numbers.

    Unless Hindi digits is checked in character pannel which forces them to Arabic numbers.

    Image 01: Farsi Numbers have turned into English Numbers upon submitting.

  3. Lock in time

    It would be nice when layers could be locked in time, to secure montage while working on effects.

  4. Bug - bad render image frames on preview

    Tired of updating the software, waiting for the error to be fixed. When a video is played, lots of glitchs appear, unfortunate error that causes a lot of production problems.

  5. Ability to work in 8bit or 16bit float.

    Ability to work in 8bit or 16bit float. This would allow faster workflow pre-final-render for 32bit projects. (Currently you cannot previs or test 32bit projects in 8bit or 16bit because they do not float and the look of the images changes drastically.)

  6. Expression Control Menus Should not Reset

    If you do not set a keyframe all of the dropdown menus reset to the default when duplicating a comp.

    They should stay where you set them.

  9. AE 2022 v22.0.1 (Build 2) - macOS Render Queue Batch Output Location Does Not Change

    The render queue within AE 2022 v22.0.1 on macOS 11.6.1 (20G224) does NOT change the output location when selecting multiple comps in the queue. Manually need to set each location, render one at a time, or use AME. Almost unbelievably, it's easier to let it default wherever and find/move your files later.

  11. BUG: Incorrect change of Scale ratio when one value is negative

    When two layers' Scales are manipulated, and one of those has a negative x or y value, the Scaling is not correct.
    See the movie for the behaviour: see how 80,80 is manipulated in de upper layer, and what happens to 80,-80 in the third layer.

  12. Search and replace text in files, folders, layers, effect names, texct layers, etc.

    Often I need to rename batches of layers, masks, files, etc. Or I need to manipulate a large volume of text layers to swap out a word (much less often). It would be nice to have this feature built into to AE. For what it's worth I've been using the software and making my living from it for close to 20 years.

  13. Text panel for After Effects

    It would be really useful if I could scrub through timelines by selecting words on a transcript, the same way it works with the text panel in Premiere Pro.

  14. BUG: File Naming Templates Don't Work

    For the last several releases of AE, the file naming templates to do not properly interpret the [projectFolder] location on Windows. If you assign an output path like "[projectFolder]\outputs\studio shots[compName]_[#####].[fileextension]", the output will not be in the expected location. It seems after setting this output if you save the project again and re-open, reassign the template again from a saved preset, save the proejct again, then reopen the project again, the output will then be written to the right location. Most of the time that works. It needs to be fixed regardless. Using 18.2.1

  15. Bug report: paint stroke with shift

    using paint stroke with holding shift to draw straight lines creates multiple actions in the history, so I cannot undo the stroke with "Command+z"
    this applies to clone stamp tool as well.

    just checked the previous versions and last time it was working correctly was AE CC 2019.

    AE 22.0.0

  17. To allow interconnection use of compositions, despite the updates

    To allow compositions created in old versions (After v18.4.1) to be used and allow to import in Premiere Pro after updates.

    So allow interconnection use, despite the updates, which help the creator to secure the editing.

  18. Bug Squashing. How has this not existed in 30 years of After Effects?

    So I was forced to move a large project recently. And I knew what that meant; AE would yell at me for all the moved files, despite being collected. I had 600 error messages where the only option was "OK". Please, help me understand why I have to manually click an "OK" option 600 times. Literally had to sit there clicking "OK" repeatedly. How is there no bug-squashing in this program after 30+ years? Does the AE team need some help with code? Check out how Unity does it; all errors are collected into the console, the project still attempts…

  19. Create a program for After Effects like Rush

    Would love to have a program like Premiere Rush but for After Effects. Making simple animations for people who don't have time to learn the power of After Effects yet. Social Media managers would for sure use this tool as part of CC.
