  1. Take the AE and AI devs out for a beer and see why they've never talked to each other

    I hate how unintuitive and cobbled the Illustrator --> After Effects flow is. It's like the teams had one phone call years ago and then never improved on the process.

    Illustrator: I think and draw here. Then clean up the objects. Creating new Layers (not sublayers) is and never has been in my workflow. It never needed to be. It ruins trying to select things on the canvas, just overcomplicated. To prep an .ai file to go to AE is just convoluted and really trashes the file and layer organization that is correct in Illustrator.

    AE: I ONLY do motion…

    Although the sentiment of this idea is appreciated, this submission is not phrased in a helpful manner, and is being closed.

    This UserVoice site is designed to allow ideas to be promoted via user voting and comments. The best submissions are clear, individual feature requests or stories that describe the desired functionality you would like for After Effects, or the individual problem that you are trying to solve.

    While this submission generally addresses the the topic of integration between After Effects and Illustrator, the title and description do not address a single feature or problem that can be voted and addressed. The commentary is better suited for the Adobe Forums (https://forums.adobe.com/community/aftereffects_general_discussion). Or, I will happily chat with you about this over a beer.

    There are several submissions already that address individual feature requests for After Effects integration with Illustrator. We encourage you to vote and comment on them.…

  2. MULTIPLE REQUEST :: VOTE PLEASE

    Maybe some of the below requests are available now and I'm not aware or they are in development (cross fingers), but here they are:

    Multiple core support... of course.

    Trim layer like Premiere does it "Alt + arrows"

    Paint EFFECT on Text Layers ...

    Show Layer Styles in the Effects Panel like an effect (not forcing the user to navigate the layer controls to find them)

    Have the option to choose between Icon (Thumbnail) or List view on the Project panel. Like premiere , and roll over a video file to scroll it ?

    Show Layer Styles in the Effects…

    Thanks for you post.

    We’re closing this post because it contains multiple ideas. UserVoice is a site that is used best when each idea has its own post so that each idea can be discussed and voted on for its own merits.

    Many of the ideas you’ve suggested have already been posted; in those cases I encourage you to find those posts and vote for it there and/or comment to make suggestions on how you’d like to see that particular idea come to fruition in After Effects.

  3. Master Layer

    Make an option where you can make an composition an Master and then u can copy it unlimited times in the timeline and then make changes without effecting the original Composition. Maybe u also could make an option to reset the layer in the timeline to the Master. This would really help with making presets for multiple use.

  4. .DPX format for archival

    We are using the .dpx image sequence format to archive motion graphics renders, is there any reason why AE would not support .dpx in the future? Are there any plans to discontinue it?
