  1. Lock in time

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.)

  5. Allow us to select anchor points from multiple shape layers at the same time

    I have a comp with 50+ line layers and I want to adjust the rightmost anchor point in all the lines at the same time. I've found no way to do this in AE. With Illustrator you can just use the direct selection tool and drag a bounding box around all the points you want regardless of layer and move them. Why not in After Effects? This can't be that hard to add and it's been a limitation in AE since the beginning of time. Please fix it.

  7. 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.

  8. Export mxf, h264, h265 - just like Premiere Pro can do

    After Effect users are convicted to use Media Encoder to output .mxf/op1a and h264/h265. But Premiere can output all of these - why can't Ae?

    The route from Ae to AME is far from smooth - so it will save a lot of time to have these output codecs handy from within After Effects.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  15. Visibility of After Effects Work Space

    I am 90 and taking a course in AE for personal enrichment at my local Junior college. The current workspace for AE is all black and the icons at the top are o small - that combination makes it difficult to use. I saw a tutorial on Vimeo in which the workspace was a light grey in color and the icons where reasonably large to be able to use. So I suggest that Adobe make this a new standard for new users and beginners to learn AE more easily. As a former technical writer/editor I wrote highly detailed instructions manuals…

  16. 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…

  18. "Save" MOGRT tags/keywords to project

    I work with MOGRTs on the regular, and part of our process is making sure that they're searchable with keywords/tags. But you can only add tags at the export stage, and if you need to reexport those MOGRTs, then you have to retype all those tags in again - there's no way to save them alongside the rest of the project.

    What would be great is if we could add the tags to the MOGRT, but have that save with the project so that I don't have to retype the whole set of tags from scratch every time.

  19. [BUG] Draft 3D not working

    Updated to 18.0.1 today. New Project. Draft 3D button is clickable, but nothing ever happens. If hovering the button, it says 'enable hardware accelerated panels in prefs/display', yet I got that already on. Could anybody help? What did I miss? Does the GPU or driver version matter?

  20. Submit your app to Microsoft Store

    Hello, could you please submit your Windows app to the Microsoft Store? To make it easier to download, and users did not have to think about updates. With the release of Windows 11, it became possible to submit traditional desktop apps (Win32) in the Microsoft Store, not just UWP - https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-store/desktop-apps/.
