  1. key stroke

    Ignored keystrokes.
    When using After Effects some keystrokes seem to be ignored randomly. When entering a timecode for example, a lot of the times one of the numbers entered is just ignored. It's not a delay, it can be a number in the middle that's ignored. Even if I explicitly type deliberate and slow, making sure I press the keys correctly and firmly after effects randomly ignores a keystroke. Not always, but every other timecode (8 characters) I enter one random characters turns out missing. Also sometimes I have to press a shortcut (u, p, s, r, t, the usual)…

  2. Bug Report: Wrong file is showing when importing PSD

    When importing a PSD-file After Effects ads another PSD-file to the project. I've tried multiple times to creat a new project, moved the files, reinstalled AE...
    Other types of file format works fine.

  3. Audio playback is too slow after latest update

    I'm trying to reproduce a simple 45s mp3 and it just won't render. It has always worked normal until the latest update. I have 32gb of RAM and the reproduction quality is set to quarter.

  4. Thai characters rendering issues

    Hi, I work in a big team, and several guys were having issues with the rendering of Thai characters in After Effects.

    The main issue we encountered was some vowels not being rendered in the correct position or completely missing altogether.
    We have been using the "south asian and middle eastern" text engine, but with different results. If we create the file from scratch using that engine, we barely encounter the issue, but usually we receive files created by our clients, so we find ourselves constantly trying to solve this, and having different results in various computers with the same…

  5. AE Above all

    Every time I open AE or its done rendering or it has an alert, AE has to put its self above all other APPs/window folders I have open at the time. Its very annoying.It tends to glitch the windows order forcing me to click a separate window or app and then AE and then I can have window folders above it or any other app I was busy working on.

    I know whomever was working on AE thought this was a good idea... its not. AE is the best but it shouldn't glitch out to be above all other apps…

  6. Adobe Fonts not loading automatically

    In order to load the fonts in AE, I have to open another app, like Illustrator or Photoshop. All apps are up to date.

  7. Content Credentials for Video

    It would be very nice to add Content Credentials feature to After Effects - the same way it's done in Photoshop Beta. This might help to prevent converting illegally acquired videos into NFTs.

  8. Error: pdf file name is too long error (Illustrator files)

    AE 2021 (win) commmonly gives an error that a pdf file is incompatible because the file name is too long. This happens even when there is no pdf in the Project panel, however, it looks like this might be the work of a couple bugs that need to be fixed:
    -- The "pdf" reference may be inaccurately labelled coming from .ai files saved with pdf compatibility
    -- The filename length problem may be a result of the entire filepath+filename being more than the allowed limit (~256 char). (known bug with Adobe pdfs)
    -- Multiple instances of this issue individually receive…

  9. Camera Tracker / Show 2d trackers before Solving

    When using Camera Tracker, Ae tries to Solve the track automatically.
    But I would like to kill some 2D tracks before Solving, to get better results when moving objects are in the shot.

  10. ease() accepts cubic-bezier inputs as an argument

    I use linear and ease interpolation a bunch, but it would be wonderful to have cubic-bezier as a built in interpolation method in expressions!

    I manually hack it like this:

    var p = <target layer>
    var targetYPos = p[1];
    var yStart = 50;
    var yEnd = 180;
    var targetValEnd = 0;
    var targetValStart = 50;

    function constrain(amt, low, high) {
    return (amt < low) ? low : ((amt > high) ? high : amt);
    }

    function lerp(start, stop, amt) {
    return start + (stop-start) * amt;
    }

    function rangeMap(value, low1, high1, low2, high2) {
    return low2 + (high2 - low2)…

  12. Option for temporary prefs reset

    On more than a few occasions I've needed to check and see if my workspaces have been contributing to issues that arise in the public beta. The official way to reset all my prefs is to launch the app while holding

    • Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows)
    • Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS)

    This works but it completely obliterates all my prefs custom workspaces forever. I currently go to that folder and make a copy before doing this but that eats up time and is a pain. I'd like to have a temporary option to load the app with default preferences (perhaps by holding z with the…

  13. Other methods of payment

    Hello, I'm designer and illustrator from Russia, not a politician, not a soldier. I got 1-year plan for Creative Cloud all applications and I must pay monthly. Visa and MasterCard blocked international payments for my country, PayPal doesn't work as well, so I can't make payment. Could you please add any other payment methods like Union Pay, Mir, bank transfer or any other?
    Design must be available for everyone. Thank you.

  14. AE 2021 preserve RGB interpret footage issue

    I see this has been reported before but still not fixed.

    AE 2021 is changing the footage interpretation on quicktime files(could also be all files). I have preserve RGB box checked on a quicktime file in AE 2020. I open the same AE file in AE 2021 and the box is now unchecked.

    I tested this on multiple quciktime files and the issue persists. This is a big issue as the AE project files will be used by multiple artists and the look is changing dramatically when that box is unchecked.

  15. Fix Media Encoder 2022 frames timing inconsistency bug

    When I use AME to render h264 video (Preset - Match source - High bitrate), some layers appear and disappear at wrong time on the result video, though it's composed correctly in After Effects - I've checked it frame by frame.

    I have white background on video, objects appear few milliseconds later than they should, so video "blinks" on some transitions.

    I attached video. List of issues:
    5 sec - white screen, layers appear too late (person and walls)
    6 sec - same scene, layer with a person disappear too early
    6 sec - next transition "blinks" with white screen…

  16. Right click on color in fill and have the option to add it to library

    Getting client's colors can be a bear even with the existing tools. it would be so nice if I could just right click on the fill and add the color to library.

  18. Cancel button on Auto-Save progress bar box

    It would be great to have a Cancel button on the Auto-Save progress bar box. Saving large projects can take a long time and can be very inconvenient at certain times. With a Cancel button, Auto-Save doesn't have to be completely disabled to avoid problems with that.

  19. Opt-out of the installation of Cinema 4D R21 when installing After Effects

    Add a checkbox or something to allow users to opt-out of the installation of Cinema 4D R21 when installing After Effects.

    I already have a valid perpetual license for Cinema 4D R19 Studio. R21 is pointless as it only allows me to use a trial license or purchase a license. The application is useless for those who already own a commercial license.

    To make matters worse, I must uninstall it every time there is an update for After Effects. Quite frankly, I consider it bloatware. It useless and it wastes space on my hard drive.

    I understand that there are…
