  4. Please add the Arabic translation to the education and training section on the website https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/view-all-tutori

    I find it difficult to do learning and development because the use of interpretation is very cumbersome

  6. Keyframe can contain expressions and that keyframe's value is the result of the expression

    Allow keyframes to contain expressions. This would allow the user to blend hand-crafted animations with procedural parts.

  7. Don't re-size window when opening files from File Explorer

    Under Windows, whenever I have After Effects open and maximized, and I double-click a file in File Explorer, After Effects insists on resizing itslef to 2K on my 4K screen. Don't do this!!! Leave the size of the window untouched like any normal program does.

  8. Bug - Failing to export high quality videos

    Since 2019 was introduced, currently all codecs used for exporting outside of low quality ones like avi and mpeg4 are resulting in videos with flickers and broken animations, as if the graphics card is failing - this is taking place when mercury software only is being used as well as enhancements.

    This is the case when AE content is present in Premiere Pro or through Media Encoder.

  10. Font size modification doesn't currently scale from Anchor Point

    When I create a new text layer, and center the Anchor Point to the middle of the text box, I assume all effects will take place from that Anchor Point. However, when I adjust the Font Size in the Character panel, it still applies the scaling effect from the bottom of the text box, and not from the Anchor Point. The Anchor Point stays in place as the font is scaled, causing the Anchor Point to no longer be centered in the text box after adjusting the font size.

  11. Add a key to nudge Rotation in 1/10 of a degree

    While manual tracking, or rotoscoping, I find myself often entering rotation values numerically, since the keyboard only allows us to rotate in whole degrees.
    It would be very effective if a modifier key could make this more accurate: in steps of 0.1 degree. (just like it's possible to rotate in steps of 10, by pressing a modifier)

  12. Missing plugin notice gives no information on where the missing plugin layer is

    Opening up an older project, you sometimes get a notification about a missing plugin, but then no information on how to track down where the problem plugin is.

    How many layers have the issue?

    Can the layers and comps have a warning symbol so you can see where the problem is?

    Can there be some sort of log that lists what comp and what layers are missing plugins?

    It's really annoying to hunt around for them, delete/replace them, reopen the scene and it still give the same error because you couldn't find them all.

    Thank you for filing this feature request.

    Currently in After Effects, you can use the Search fields at the top of the Project or Timeline panels to search for either:
    - The keyword “Missing Effects” (which is a saved term if you click on the magnifying glass icon). This will show all comps in the Project panel, or layers in the Timeline panel that reference effects that could not be loaded.
    - The name of the effect that was reported as missing.

    Does the above functionality meet your needs, or do you still desire additional functionality?

  13. Keyframe-able Layer Controls

    I know it probably presents a whole host of problems, but it'd be nice if we could keyframe layer controls. It would also be nice if effects that reference layers could be keyframed so that you can link them to a layer control.

    If you're using multiple layers with the same Set Matte setup, for example, it'd be great if we could change them all with one layer expression control. But since they can't be keyframed they can't have expressions either. This makes the Layer Control much less useful than it could otherwise be.

  14. Import Illustrator Brushes

    Since the brush/paint tool uses vector brush shapes, we should be able to import illustrator brushes and use them within After Effects.

  16. MXF

    I'm baffled that MXF options have been removed from AE... And I don't want to hear about sending it to AME... That's a lame alternative since it takes significantly longer to render. Please, add these back.

  17. EPS Antialiasing Preferences

    I build most of the graphics for my animations in AI, then import into AE. A lot of the graphics I create are complex and/or rely on gradients. Once they're in AE they look low res and choppy.

    Currently, the only solution is to select each individual layer in the Project Panel, click "Interpret Footage," select more options, eps options, antialiasing, then "More Accurate." Not the end of the world, but annoying.

    I'd like to request an option to make this easier and quicker to do en masse. Preferably an option within the preferences panel referring to EPS antialiasing. Or…

  18. Extend marker duration backwards

    Currently, you can extend a marker's duration forward in time by holding Alt/Option and dragging. I would like to add the ability to extend marker duration backwards so the in point would automatically become the end point, thus allowing you to extend the in point toward the beginning of the timeline.

  19. Display Acceleration Disabled

    Can you fix this issue? I recently updated to the latest CC and now I can no longer see my RAM Previews which is a major issue for my workflow!

    I run a MAC that is already fully upgraded so thats not really an option for me.

  20. Super annoying bug - missing layers in timeline

    Experiencing a particularly annoying bug; timeline shows only 43 out of about 260 layers. Yet preview will scrub and playback full project. So I can watch the full project, I just can't access or see most of the layers.

    Thank you for filing this bug report, and for including the project.

    I do reproduce a problem when I open this project on my computer. After layer 964, the layer bars (the bars representing the time span of the layer) do not draw. If I delete or shy some of the layers, the missing layers will draw.

    This appears to be a bug with After Effects drawing that many layers at once. I have forwarded this bug to our developers for evaluation.

    In the meantime, I would recommend any or all of following to work around this problem:
    - Shy the layers that you are not currently working on.
    - Pre-compose groups of layers to simplify the composition, or:
    - Otherwise re-organize this composition by breaking it into smaller compositions with fewer layers.

    The above steps will help not only with working around this bug, but will make the composition…
