  3. Crop Using Region Of Interest not working

    I expect to output only the Region Of Interest, but Ae just outputs the complete Comp.
    Look like the Output Module does not communicate with the set Region Of Interest. (see screenshot).

  4. Make Media Encoder use AE's numbering structure for filenames.

    When I use Media Encoder to export out a TIF frame sequence (when I wish to free up AE so I can continue to work) it doesn't use the same numbering structure as After Effects.

    E.G if in After Effects I use something like "ProjectName_[####].tif" to render out my files, Media encoder ignores the hashes and places it's own numbering on the end. Surely, it can't be too hard for it to use the file name from After Effects properly?

  5. Slow, laggy, please BRING BACK H264/H265 codec

    All major online video platforms utilize and prefer H264/H265 codec's when uploading. We were once able to render directly from the software. Since the codec isn't fully supported but I can import some videos, sometimes they look ok and sometimes they don't. When I try to render, some render fine and others render in mostly green with red flickers, with the same render settings. I honestly never had this issue before. PLEASE BRING BACK H264/H265 COMPATABILITY for all our sakes and mental health. I am sure you are making some college students go premature grey.

  6. Exported MOGRT files via ExtendScript do not have preview img for Media Replacement

    When I export comps to MOGRT file via ExtendScript API:

    CompItem.exportAsMotionGraphicsTemplate(true, pathToFolder);

    I don't have a Thumbnails folder and therefore I don't have previews of my media under the Essential Graphics Panel.
    Looks like different export functions are used for manual export and scripting API.

    Please, fix that.

  7. Add Null inside object ( for example shape

    I have a suggestion for creating a Null inside an object as well as having it in composition. For instance, if I am animating the position of an object and need to move that object around I would need to create a separate null to reposition object. Why not add null functionality inside the shape layer (as an example) so that the layer can have its position moved or rotation adjusted without having to attach it to a null becuase the position or rotation already has keyframes

  8. Arri raw

    When I import ARRI RAW MXFs from Alexa Mini that were shot with a different pixel aspect ratio than square (2:1 Anamorphic in our case) the footage is interpreted with a wrong resolution. Instead of 4448x3096 (which is the native resolution it was shot in) the footage has 4448x1548. I guess that it desqueezes the footage, puts it out in native resolution but only uses the longer side for that transform, meaning I lose resolution. In my case I got that a few hours too late and now have to redo a lot of work. Could you check that out?

  9. XYZ coordinates for vertex points

    In Adobe Illustrator I can pick a vector point and find it's X and Y location on screen therefore making sure that points line up exactly.

    I would like to see this in After Effects.

  10. API: ID for properties in property groups, like the new Layer ID

    The newest Beta has an API for unique ID for layers in a project, so that they can be refeferenced when a comp's layer stack changes. This is so helpful, and it would be great if it could extend to properties in a property group, like elements in a shape layer, effects and so on.

  11. Put pre-comps into a "Pre-comps" folder automatically, just like solids

    This could be a checkbox in the Pre-compose creation dialogue box. When enabled, precomps are automatically stored in a "Pre-comps" folder at the root level of the project. This would keep large projects so much tidier as we work. I always have to go clean up my dozens of pre-comps that are scattered all over in my primary folders.

  13. Overwrite / yes to all

    In a design process, it can come in handy to overwrite a lot of renders over and over. As a service, AE adds _1 when a filename already exists.
    I would like to have an option to just overwrite All, without having to go to the Folder and removing old versions, or remove _1 from each new Output filename.

  15. Add the possibility of continuous rasterization of file imported from Ch into Ae. Now it's pixelated when using 3D camera.

    The imported CH-file becomes pixelated when using 3D camera in AE and it would be great if AE had a similar rasterize option for Ch-files as it has for IE-files.

  18. Project default directories

    AE is pretty good at remembering last used directories. It remembers separate directories for import, scripts, render - it's really nice. But things get annoying when I'm working on a couple projects at the same time. I have to surf the file dialogs throughout the entire day.
    It would be nice if in the project preferences we could have a checkbox saying that I want this project to use it's own default directories, and then I would be able to hardcode the directories for this given project.
    So now, if a project doesn't have this option selected, it uses the…

  19. Ability to "reference", rather than just import, external AE projects

    It would be fantastic to be able to reference other AE projects into the current project, so that if one of the comps in the referenced project changes it will update where it is referenced as well (not unlike when working with imported .psds or using dynamic link with premiere). This would be tremendously helpful in situations where multiple artists are sharing assets (especially for character animation/character rig/background art projects), as changes would propagate where needed rather than have to be recreated anywhere else that asset is used.
