  1. Bug when using layer search bar

    Hi Adobe,

    After Effects keeps deleting multiple layers when I use the layer search bar to search for 'color' and cmd/ctrl+z won't bring them back so I have to close and reopen the program. Any help would be much appreciated!

  2. Basic Audio Editor with Beat Timer (+VST Support if possible)

    Hello,

    It would make life a lot easier if there was some way that Basic Audio Editing could be brought up to a more modern standard in After Effects. At the moment, the user has to go through lots of drop-down menus to see a basic waveform. It is difficult if I want to add single sounds in Audio or use any effects to create my own sounds.

    It dosen't have to be super advanced but at least something more usable and not just something that freezes up the whole system when you add a delay to an Audio Track.

  4. About develop After Effects (New World Scripting, UXP)

    When will After Effects' ExtendScript New World Scripting be enabled?
    When will UXP be available for development in After Effects?
    If UXP is implemented, will ExtendScript remain as it is now?
    I'm also wondering if the New World Scripting project will continue as is, or if it will be discontinued when UXP arrives, as well as the survival of ExtendScript itself.

  5. Script access to retrieve the layer item that is connected to an "ADBE Layer Source Alternate" property

    When media have been added to essential graphics, there doesn't seem to be any way to retrieve that layer that is being affected by that media replacement property

    Would be great to have access to this!

    Thanks,
    Steve

  6. Colour coded tabs for docked panels

    If you could assign some colour (or even a shade) to docked tabs , then when I quickly glance at my stacked panels I'd more easily jump to the right one. It'd be a real help in panel navigation for smaller screens.

  7. Some expressions not evaluated during headless render

    Is there seriously no place to actually post bug reports ? I can't even join .aep files here...
    Anyway... I have this expression that basically takes the content of a csv file and uses it as a Text Source.
    It works well when rendering with AME and as a png sequence in the renderqueue.
    However, if I start the render via command line (on windows) in order to use multiple threads, my text appears empty.
    This is really unfortunate as command line renders makes it 4-5 times faster than regular render queue within AE (I won't even mention how painfully…

  8. Smart photoshop import

    When importing new layers from a photoshop file, you should be able to pick and import multiple layers at a time, not just one by one.

  9. 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.

  11. Layers Pinned on top and audio output button

    It could be great if we can pin layers on top, in comps with some lots layers.
    Also you could add a button in the tool pane to change the audio output instead go to preferences.

  12. Easily scroll (cycle) through Luts in lumetri color

    We need the ability to scroll, with a shortcut or mouse wheel, through LUTs in lumetri color with having to browse new LUT every time.

  13. Please Maintain Output Settings / Templates when updating

    Every update I have to remake those, when not saved before updating.
    Very unproductive.

  14. Respect Even Odd Fill Rule when Create Shapes From Vector Layer

    Ai gives the lazy user a solution to get the fill toggle for Compound Paths right. Clicking the Even Odd Fill Rule switch in the Attributes panel makes it work directly. But when imported in Ae and choosing to create Shapes from the Ai, the Even Odd Fill Rule is skipped.

  15. smooth or page scrolling timeline

    I'd love to see a smooth scrolling or even page scrolling timeline like that inside premiere. Whenever the TLI previews past view, it would be great to continue to see the timeline in relation to the indicator.

  16. Transfer parent name of named properties in Essential Graphics

    Properties such as effects can be renamed by the user, it would be helpful if the name given to the effect was transferred to essential graphics. Particularly the expression controls. Currently if I use a slider, for example, and I name the slider effect, when I include it in EG I have to rename it again in the EG window, because it will just be called "Slider".
    It would be good if manually named properties could inherit their parent's name when being included in EG. This could be appended to the start of the name, so if I add an…

  17. Add xml import back into after effect

    Please can you add xml import back into after effects? Importing a whole PP project bloats AE projects with so much unneeded media it’s a total pain. Also removes the ability to quickly import grade from colourist and quickly set up projects and have the team start working.

  19. Include hardware settings with Workspaces

    I have Workspaces defined for my office desk and for my home office, each with different arrangements of monitors and speakers. It would be wonderful if there was an option to "sync" audio/video hardware settings with your Workspaces, so that AE would know to use my external speakers at work and my built-in laptop speakers at home (as an example).
