  1. Please bring all OpenType features to After Effects

    Typography is an important part of many animations. With the great amount of options designers have with OpenType-Fonts every aspect of a font should be accessible in a modern animation software.

    Please add all OpenType-Options as seen in the Photoshop Character Panel to be natively accessible in After Effects.

  2. Scaling down output size in Media Encoder from AE is buggy

    When sending compositions to Media Encoder for rendering, scaling the output size down from the original size results in really bad, jaggy pixel scaling.

    This only happens when exporting AE to Media Encoder, not when importing footage into Media Encoder or when exporting from Premiere to Media Encoder.

    Tested in:
    AE 16.1.3
    AE 17.0.0
    ME 13.1.5
    ME 14.0

  3. Allow scripts to have access to clipboard

    Currently, scripts need to send a command line to copy from clipboard, this seems to be much slower on Windows than on MAC, making scripts not as optimized on Windows machines. Allowing scripts to have direct access to clipboard would fix this issue and make the workflow on Windows comparable to Macs in this regard.

  4. Define the Output Path / Module for a Project

    When working on several alternating projects, for each time we render the Output Paths and Output Module have to be set.
    Why not make these part of the Project Settings?

  5. DXV and HAP encoding!!!!!

    Why would you get rid of the ability to use and encode to DXV and Hap Codecs, seriously why?? Both these codecs are so widely used with Media Servers for Live events, Concerts, Touring, Multimedia performances and Installations. As they are very efficient for playback systems. I’ve been an Adobe user for over 20 years, after effects, premier and photoshop have been important tools in my work flow. But I’m seriously looking into alternatives, because of the lack of support for these codecs. The live event world has very demanding deadlines and by no longer supporting theses codecs my turn…

  6. duplicate layers below

    it would be nice to have the option to duplicate layers below the source layer. Maybe via a shortcut, like "command + control + D".

    It's handy when using a bunch of "index - 1" expressions

  8. Resolve Typekit Conflicts with Installed fonts

    BUG: Installed fonts conflict with typekit fonts

    Issue --
    • Proxima nova family fonts installed (sans Medium)
    • Typekit fonts installed creates conflict where only limited weights are available from the family list. Typekit overwrites installed fonts on list and matching installed/typekit names appear to disappear altogether.

    For us -- many of our clients use Motion for FCPX to edit and Motion does not see typekit fonts at all, so hardcopies must be installed on all edit machines but then in doing so -- AE has conflict with generation of the available typeface list.

    I described the incident in more…

  9. Allow .mogrt files to export with adjustment layers to affect video clips in Premiere.

    I use a lot of the same graphics for multiple "Projects" and wanted to create a template in After Effects for consistency and lessen the workload. But It part of that graphic is to turn part of the video clip black and white I need to use an Adjustment Layer. Allowing Adjustment Layers to port over with .mogrt files would make things much easier for me and I'm guessing others as well.

  10. Source / Masks / Effects & Masks effect option scriptable

    It is possible to set and change each property of the effects with a layer selection dropdown (such as Set Matte or Compound Arithmetic) via scripting, however the selection for 'Source / Mask / Effects & Masks' is currently inaccessible (via script).

    Please reveal this dropdown property to the Extendscript API for all effects with a layer selection dropdown.

    Screenshot of this inaccessible dropdown is attached.

  11. Composition name Dynamic Link

    If I change the name of a a composition in After Effects that I got from Premiere via Dynamic Link, the name will not transfer into Premiere. Instead Premiere still shows the old name which results in confusions on whether its the right composition your editing and more. Also I can imagine that there could be problems reopening the Premiere project so that it will not find the AE comp because of the changed name.

  12. Add "corner limit" feature to strokes on text as you can in Illustrator

    In Illustrator, I can set a corner limit to a stroke on text. This allows me to get nice sharp points in the little crevices on lower case r, p, b, etc. This would be incredibly helpful in After Effects. Because of this limitation, we have not been able to turn these into essential graphics, so instead we continue to work simultaneously between AI, AE, and PR.

    In my attached images is the window from AI that has the corner limit feature, and then a side by side of what comes from AI (top) vs from AE (bottom). Unfortunately for…

  13. Export AE Shapes and masks to C4D Splines

    AE Shapes and masks have some unique options and properties that are difficult to recreate in C4D, and having a way to convert them into C4D splines would be very helpful in my workflow.

  14. Scripting Access to Text Properties of Individual Letters

    If a text has multiple fonts, font sizes, colors, scripts can currently only see those properties for the very first character.

    This means scripts like my TextExploder (https://aescripts.com/textexploder/ ) or Text2Spreadsheet (https://aescripts.com/text2spreadsheet/) cannot preserve the text formatting properly, if the text has multiple styles.

    Instead of providing a single value for the text properties, Ae should provide scripts an array of style ranges. The XD scripting API does this and is a good example of how it can be done.

  15. A new and more open color management workflow! (ACES and co. should be a friend and not a nightmare!)

    The color management in AE is very special but sadly not in a positive/professional way.

    We need a open and complete new color management system (also for professionals) where we can manage e.g. a linear ACES Workflow (it a standard) in a usable fashion!!! … like in every other compositing or color grading app in 2019.

    I think, beside of the missing multucore rendering and the outdated „3D“ Engine that's one of the main reasons why nearly no bigger postproduction studio is using AE anymore.

    So stop fixing only the little things and face the real problems of the old…

  16. Let Master Properties carry over to Render Queue

    When rendering a comp I want to be able to render multiple variants. MP's would let me do this.

  18. .mogrt support in Libraries

    Seems .mogrt files are not supported in Libraries. When will this be available? It's an option when exporting from AE but they don't show up. When trying to manually import into a Library I get the attached error message.

  20. maybe they'll listen to a poem?

    I miss you h dot two six four
    your size and speed we all adored
    but woe the codec list is bare
    and media encoders just as impaired
    hope someday it will be restored.
