  1. Bug - Folder doesn't exist

    I have a default custom output path set to render into the folder my project is in. I have a subfolder specified in the custom output.

    Every time I go to render the first render (before the subfolder is created), AE gives me an error that the folder doesn't exist (even though it's supposed to create it), and when I clear that error and hit render again it works fine. I have a feeling it's because the custom output path, doesn't actually tick that "Save in subfolder" box until the second time. Or maybe it fails the check, then creates…

  5. AE Render Engine: JSON alert stops watch folder queue

    The JSON alert "The structure of the data file has changed" also pops up when After Effects is running as render engine in watch folder mode. The alert dialog stops the rendering process and therefore the render queue.

    Please remove the JSON alert or mute it.

  6. Bug: Importing 23.97 footage with Speed/Duration from Premiere causes error

    Importing a Premiere sequence containing a 23.97fps MP4 clip which has Speed/Duration changes or has been Rate Stretched throws the attached errors.

    I could not reproduce with 29.97 ProRes footage, so this may be specific to certain framerates. The Premiere sequence was 29.97, and I also got the error while trying to copy/paste the clip to a 29.97 After Effects comp.

    Expected behavior: Translate Speed/Duration to the equivalent After Effects concept (Time Remapping?) transparently.

    Actual behavior: Sequence import is interrupted, unclear warnings on which clip(s) need attention.

  7. Import function library jsx automatically

    The ability to import a jsx file with a library of expressions is a great feature. I think it could be improved if there was a file somewhere in the Adobe preferences folder called something like UserFunctions.jsx, which is automatically imported into the After Effects namespace. This would allow users to edit this file and be able to access these functions without needing to manually import the jsx for each project. So if the UserFunctions.jsx contains a function called overshoot(foo, bar) for example, the user can just type overshoot(3, 1) into any expression and it will work. Maybe for safety…

  10. BUG: OpenEXR different Color AE/PP

    Hello,
    we render a lot with OpenEXR in After Effetcs. If I am import them into Premiere the Color is different in comparison when I import them in After Effects. My workaround is to import the File in After Effects and make an dynamik Link in Premiere Pro.

    By the way, the compression slider for Exporting OpenEXR is missing in After Effects. In AME there is a compression Slider for OpenEXR.

    Thank you for your Time

  11. ASCII project files

    Please provide an option to save project files as ASCII files instead of binary. This is particularity needed for source control (such as when checking in After Effects projects into a Git repository) and for traceability (i.e., who/when changed what) but also allows project issues to be easily rectified with a simple text editor (such as performing search-and-replace of media paths or replacing one plug-in with another and do it across projects in a fraction of the time that it would take to do it manually).

    Note that all professional content creation software support ASCII files including Maya.

  13. Allow file-based versioning/snapshotting of all media relating to a project

    Use-case

    An After Effects project is frozen. As such all media related to that project must remain untouched yet remain in their location on the file system while still allowing the next version to build on the previous version.

    Currently, to support this, I version all media using the prefix _v###. Then, every time I need to freeze a project, I duplicate all the versioned files and increment the version numbers. Sometimes files are renamed, sometimes files are deleted in the process, yet the versions before remain untouched.

    In fact, depending on the structure, the files of the new version…

  14. Premiere Dissolves no longer create Opacity keyframes in After Effects

    In the past, you could create a video in Premiere Pro and add in typical Cross Dissolves. Then, when you send the clips through to dynamic link, all of the dissolves would be converted into Opacity keyframes.

    This has not worked for a large number of previous versions.

    Was this feature removed? If so, why? Can it be added back? Is this a bug?

  15. Scripting access to set markers as "selected"

    Please open the API to allow access to programmatically select a given marker.

    I am trying to write a script to access the "Update Markers from Source" context menu item, but because that particular command requires a layer marker to be selected, and it's impossible to select a marker via ExtendScript, my script cannot ever work.

    It's already possible to loop through to select a certain layer. It should be just as easy to select a layer marker on that layer, once the layer is selected.

  16. import

    Bug: jpeg importer does not import correctly. When importing multiple jpeg files, they show up as the same image, i.e., the file names are correct in the project panel, but when opening them in the footage viewer or placing them in a sequence, they are all either the same image or 1 of 2 different images. if the file type is changed to pngs, all images display correctly.

  17. Access text properties (kerning, font size, leading, etc) via scripting

    We need more access to text properties via scripting. It will be helpful to change, for example, the font size of a text layer via scripting, that way the textbox stay the same size becouse right now I can only change the scale of the layer and it changes all proportions of the layer (height and with in pixels, size of the textbox).
    If we can access to that properties via scripting we can let all LayerObject attributes the same (textboxes, width, height, scale) and only change font size, leading, kerning, tracking, text stroke width, color, etc).

    Thanks for your…

  20. Dismiss all files not found

    Either provide a list of all the missing footage or files, or give me a dismiss all button. I don't need to hit OK hundreds of times before I can just look for an expression in an unarchived project.
