  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. Multiple projects open simultaneously

    Premiere Pro use to not be able to open multiple projects simultaneously, but now that it does it has helped make my personal workflow so much better because I can easily copy elements from one project to another without the need to go to import an entirely separate project.

    I think it would be just as helpful to be able to open multiple projects in After Effects the same way.

  3. 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?

  4. 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

  5. Individual Comp Settings Render Path

    This is something that has bugged me for years.  I open a project, render.  Hop into a different project. Add to Render Queue.  Now all of my settings are pointing to the other projects render paths... 

    I work for an advertising agency and I am constantly rendering work for multiple clients. When going back and forth the only way to retain output paths is to duplicate the item in the render queue.  Why?  Each composition should have the option within the -- Composition Settings -- to set a render path.  When you duplicate the comp, the render path stays.  This…

  6. When adding a composition to AME Queue, give the user the option to pick "render settings" similarly to the AE render queue options.

    I'm often using scaled down proxy footage for multiple compositions on big projects to speed up workflows. For final quality renders, I am currently limited to either using AE's render queue using the "Best Settings" render setting which locks me from doing more work in AE, or manually turning off all my proxy links before sending my comp to the AME queue.

    I understand the dynamic link protocol has limitations which is why I suggest adding a dialog box or a preference option where AE users can choose the render settings that get translated to AME, allowing options other than…

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. Send multiple audio layers to audition as multitrack session

    I often rough in voiceover and musical timing in aftereffects as I'm blocking a sequence. It would be nice to send those tracks to audition as a dynamic link multitrack session. Currently my workflow is to render audio stems from AE for finessing, but there are obvious limitations there.

  11. 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

  15. Importing single layer .ai file does not retain layer sizes

    When importing an Illustrator file which only has one layer and checking the Composition - Retain Layer Sizes - the footage defaults to artboard/composition size.

    If you add another layer, or a blank layer the Layer Sizes are retained.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
