  1. Make common tasks faster/ easier like the Motion v2 plugin does

    I know this is a rather open request, but I highly recommend someone on the AE dev team checks this out and tries to update AE to be easier and quicker to use expressions, null, track matte/ mask, organize/ rename layers, etc.

  2. Add metadata back in to project files

    After Effects used to add in a "CreatorTool" to the xmp metadata in the project file (eg. "<xmp:CreatorTool>Adobe After Effects CC 2018 (Windows)/xmp:CreatorTool").

    This is really useful for finding out the version of AE the project was created in, so the correct version can be opened (especially when coding). This also displayed data in Adobe Bridge that's now missing.

    Any reason why this was removed in CC 2019? Can we have it back?

  5. More/Better Interpolation functions for expressions

    With the new Master Properties feature I'm finding myself diving into expressions a lot more.

    My only gripe at the moment is that in order to build a smoother animation, you need easing. In order to make keyframed objects customizable (different start and end values), you need to define the values through expressions.

    Currently, we only have linear(), ease(), easeIn(), easeOut() for interpolation. Unfortunately none of these look very good, as the difference between ease() and linear() is almost negligible.

    Currently I'm running into strange errors defining new functions in master properties (a bug report coming soon), and I'm thinking…

  7. AE and AN should have smooth zoom on stage (Ctrl+Spacebar+Mouseclic) like PS and AI. That is a basic but powerfull thing.

  8. BUG REPORT: Random Single Black Frame in Video

    BUG REPORT: I have noticed this with a number of various videos I've worked on in the past couple months over a variety of Adobe AE versions. (Currently 15.1.0).

    I will be playing back a comp I've been working on and notice that a random frame in the middle of the source video is 100% black. This is only viewable in AE. When viewing the original source video in Quicktime or VLC, it does not show the black frame. If I view the composition in AE it will show the black fame and even when I view the source video…

  10. UI Fontsize scalable

    I'm getting older, Screens get higher relosutions, font size in AE stays the same. Very tiny.
    That's not good.
    Please add the feature to scale the font-size. In the best case for every window seperately.

    cheers
    Sebastian

  11. Save to older versions without having to have the older versions

    There's not reason we should only be able to save an AE project to one version lower than the one we created the project in. Please implement a way to save to lower versions, down to CS6, without having to have every version in between installed on your computer.

    Some of us make templates, or need to send projects to clients that don't have the most recent version. I don't want to fill up my hard drive and waste time opening and saving in every version possible, when it should be inherent in the most current version of After Effects.

  12. Shortcut: trim layer to work area time / set in and out time of layer to in and out time of work area.

    I spend so much time using the bracket keys to trim layers and most of the time I'm trimming to the work area boundaries. There should be a shortcut that does this automatically. When you duplicate a layer from another time or drop a new layer in a comp, just press a shortcut key to trim it to the work area. Simple but will save so much time manually trimming layers to the work area.

  13. Bug Report - AE 15.0.1 - lumetri scopes - RGB Parade - Green Channel is not correct

    There is a bug in After Effects when you open Lumetri Scopes - RGB Parade. The green channel is not displaying correctly. Even with a pure black solid (displays the green channel as slightly lifted) or a pure white solid (displays the green channel as slightly clipped). Confidence in scopes is very important and clearly we cannot trust the Lumetri Scopes' accuracy.

  14. Dynamic Link seems to break projects

    It's the second time I can't open a project all of a sudden, I have to take back a Backup. The first one in Premiere using an AE comp, the second in AE using Premiere sequence. Trying to open the project makes AE crash and in Pr it just stays "Media Pending". Reinstalling doesn't help. I'm wasting so much time I can't even know why !

  16. Python support - EOL extendscript

    It's time to move off that old 1995 extendscript and get with Python! I know this is a big one, but we could REALLY use python support for AE. Commandline rendering is incredibly limited and python would be a total game changer for plenty of studios out there. And if Adobe had the idea that their users are not advanced for something like that just look at all of the new stuff constantly appearing on aescripts.com. You have plenty of nerdy developers!

    Nuf said.

  18. Create New Shape Layer Above Existing Selection

    Add feature that places new Shape Layers above a selected layer. Nulls and Solids already behave in this manner, so it would just be a matter of applying the same behavior to Shape Layers.

  19. a Premiere Layer in After Effects with visible edits

    For every cut in AE you need 2 layers. Very quickly you have a lot of layers. If you precomps the layers, you don't see "outside" the timing of the edits "under the skin". A Premiere layer only for editing would be dramatically reduce the amount of layer & you could see every edit for timing of your animation.
