  1. Export Markers to C4D

    Can we please have an easy way of exporting AE markers to C4D markers? I used Cineware to create a new C4D file in my comp. I added some markers to the layer, but when I go to C4D, the markers don't transfer. I also tried the inverse (which isn't really what I need, but tried anyway) and that doesn't seem to work either.

  2. Magenta Color Shift when exporting ProRes4444 with AE2020 on Windows

    In AE2020 Exporting a clip as ProRes4444 Millions of Colors on Windows results in an Output with a color shift towards Magenta. This can only be resolved by changing the codec to Trillions of colors.

    Also when Using ProRes 4444 XQ with the same color settings the color shift gets an additions Gamma shift problem.

    On AE 2019 this issue was not there. Also on Mac this issue can not be seen.

    We tested it on multiple Windows machines and on all of them the problem appears with AE 2020 v.17.1.4

    Please fix this problem

  3. Make it possible to render stills without framenumbering

    Even when the File Name template is set to "[compName].[fileExtension]" Ae adds _00000 to single frame Compositions.
    I have to remove those all the time in some workflows.
    Please make it possible to render stills without _00000

  4. Allow Essential Graphics (mogrt files) to be used (not just created) in After Effects too!

    I could be missing something really basic here, but I don't really understand the value of Essential graphics outside of creating a market to share/sell templates. A market like that is great and useful but it wasn't all I expected.

    For context, I spend most of my time in UX design tools like Figma and Sketch. A powerful feature in these tools are Components (in Figma) and Symbols (in Sketch). They allow you to create reusable components that can be used throughout your file (called instances). These instances usually have a fair amount of customizing that you can apply to…

  5. Proper NCLC tagging

    Apples ColorSync make things complicated when it comes to watch an export on a Mac.
    We want to see the real gamma also in QuickTime Player.
    We need a fix for that, maybe with a NCLC tag at the export settings.

    Davinci Resolve, Autodesk Flame and Filmlight already find a fix.
    that's definitly what all the apple users want to have for After effects and premiere.

    Video from Filmlight helps to understand the Problem. And they really know what they are talking about.

  6. PLEASE FIX the dreaded "unable to obtain dynamiclink project"

    I am getting an “unable to obtain dynamiclink project” error when I try to reapply Warp Stabilizer to a clip that had to be extended in length.

    As Dynamic Link has caused problems for me in the past, my workflow for the past 3+ years is to copy/paste footage from Premiere Pro into a new After Effects timeline, and render a ProRes file. This has worked flawlessly for me, and no need to mess with Dynamic Link once I had the files in AE.

    Today, I opened a project that contained some previously warp stabilized clips, one of which had…

  7. Reverse guide layer

    Can we have a function that would work opposite to Guide Layer?
    What I mean, I'd like to mark a layer to render ONLY during final render, NOT while I'm working inside AE.
    I constantly forget to enable Add Grain before the final render, especially when in the heat of the batlle when we're pushing out 10 revisions of the same shot while the client is already waiting. I disable the adjustment layer with Add Grain to work faster in AE and then I forget to enable it back again when I hit render. It's especially difficult if you have…

  8. Allow markers and "In" and "out" points on essential graphics.

    I use essential graphics for media wipes, and I'd like to add a marker on the cut frame. Or allow me to set an "In" point to line up with the cut, and have the user stretch the clip (essential graphic) after alignment.

  9. Hover over keyframe to also show ease velocity influence percent info

    When you hover over a keyframe the popup shows frame number location and amount. Add the velocity influence % in/out please. Also, add this to the Info panel, along with the amount. Thanks!

  11. Scripting Bug - Duplicating layers with layer controls

    I'm using a script I sell to make a grid of layers. For some reason, if there's an expression on the layer that I'm duplicating that points to a layer control on the layer or on another layer, it locks up After Effects completely. I can replicate the issue at will.

    I assume it's because After Effects doesn't know how to reference the expression as it copies? If I disable the expression, it works.

  12. Bug in Team Project using Essential Graphics with nested composition.

    I'm using Team Projects for After Effects and have a face-composition with a nested mouth-composition two levels down in the face-composition.

    From the mouth-comp I've added some Essential Properties to the face-comp. This works.

    When re-opening the Team Project however, I get the following error:
    "After Effects warning: Could not create Essential Graphic parameter because it refers to a non-existent layer."
    The file opens but the master properties referring to the mouth-comp on the face-comp have all disappeared. Needless to say that is a serious problem because all keyframes added to these properties are lost.

    Don't know if this is…

  13. 3D view options get orphaned when there's no 3D layer in the scene.

    You can go into Multiple views for 3D when a 3D layer or Camera is present in the comp, but if you Precomp that scene and your Precomp is 2D, all the 3D view options go away and you can't switch back to single view (1view). Please fix this ASAP. Big time waster

  14. Export transparent animated GIFs from After Effects/AME

    Currently, if I want to export a “sticker” (Animated GIF with transparency) for social media, I animate the GIF in After Effects, export a MOV with alpha, via the AE renderer, bring that MOV into Photoshop and export a GIF with transparency via the (legacy) web export. This is a lengthy, complicated process that creates a heavy and useless, for the end product, MOV file.

    In my opinion there are multiple things wrong with this workflow and could be improved by allowing direct export of transparent GIFs from AE.

    1. The Adobe export/render preference for most formats is via AME
      Issue:…

  15. Exporting pro res 4444 + alpha bug

    Issue when exporting pro res 4444 with alpha directly from AE. When this file is taken into premiere, there are weird purple artefacts, this can be removed by changing the premultiply settings, but this looses some alpha and introduces black fringing. When the same comp is exported via media encoder, using the same settings, no such issue exists.

    Thank you for reporting this bug. Our team is investigating the cause of this problem.

    This problem occurs when rendering from the After Effects render queue using premultiplied alpha. If you change the alpha mode to straight (in the Output Module Settings dialog, set the Color option to Straight (Unmatted)), the problem does not occur.

  16. Bug: Replaced footage in Project panel doesn't update the name of the footage.

    When you replace old footage with new footage - say a new version of a render - the footage updates but the name of the footage does not. It becomes confusing and requires constantly double-checking the path to make sure it's actually reading the correct footage.

  17. Essential Graphics Media Replacement controls

    The media replacement feature in MOGRTs is a game changer!!!

    I would like to see the ability to set a few media defaults in After Effects so the Premiere user doesn't have to. Specifically, I'd like to be able to set the media to "Scale to Fit" by default in After Effects.

    Also It would be nice if Expression controls kept their parent name when dropped into the Essential graphics widow in After Effects. Currently, I have to name the control in the effects panel and then give it the same name a second time when dropping it into the…

  18. Exclude video formats option on Collect Files

    When running a "Collect Files", it would be nice to have a checkbox that allows you to exclude video formats from the files to be collected.

    Often times running a "Collect Files" function takes longest because of the amount of source video data that needs to be duplicated.

    It would be great to be able to get a lot of that time back, especially when you already have many (or all) of the video files available wherever you're next working on the project you've collected.

  19. Better integration with figma.

  20. When using projectPath render token, existing files are overwritten without warning

    When using the "projectPath" property (render token) to manually set the filepath in the File Name and Location Template, if a file with the same name already exists, it will be overwritten without any warning when the user clicks Render. This should be fixed to prompt the user with a warning before rendering begins.
