  1. "More Option" in interpret Footage settings

    Hello,
    I have a issue in the interpret settings the (''more options'') is not highlighted. The (''more options'') is not enabling in the interpret footage. My file format is a MP4 Video File.
    Can anyone tell me how to enable the (''more options'') because in my footage after i opened the file there is green screen flickering and I founded the solution on YouTube in which it is saying to click and open the (''more options'') button to fix the green screen flickering issue.

  2. font preview with selected text like in Illustrator! (instead of the word "sample")

    I keep running into the issue where I'm looking for a font that has a specific shape of specific letters which I can't see when I only get a preview of the letters S A M P L and E. Please give us choices what to display, Illustrator does this perfectly. (side note: the Photoshop feature to filter serif, non-serif and monospace separately is also a godsend)

  3. Import naming conventions

    Hi there, small one, but I would like to have an option for retaining the exact naming of imported layers on illustrator files. Currently it appends every layer with the illustrator file name (which I understand), but sometimes that's very long (depending on what I have called it).
    It also is a hassle when you have created very specifically your names in illustrator to have them lengthened upon import.
    Even if in the preferences (under import) you could specify 'Exact layer names' as a check box. And possibly add an option to append each file with filename or date or…

  4. Shortcut keys 1,2, and 3 on the main keyboard now used by 3D

    I always use the shortcut keys 1,2, 3 and so on from the main keyboard (not the numbers keyboard) to jump to my respectively marked markers (i.e. marker "1", "2", "3" etc..)

    The recent updates to AE have caused these shortcut keys to be taken over by other functions, namely camera navigation functions as per the screenshot I've attached. These shortcuts are now automatically assigned to these functions and one has to manually disable these in the 3D menu in the Preferences menu. This is quite frustrating as every time I update AE I have to remember that I have…

  6. darker Transparency Grid similar to Adobe Illustrator

    The current bright transparency grid is too harsh on the eyes at night. Allow an option to choose a darker transparency grid like Adobe Illustrator’s.

  7. disabled parameter can be modified

    I've just found out, that it's possible to change disabled parameters using graph editor:

    one selects one or multiple keyframes of the disabled parameter in timeline and then in graph editor one sees a curve that corresponds to the parameter. Then I can delete, move keyframes etc. (It's important to select keyframe dragging mouse, not just clicking on the keyframe)
    Is it a bug or it's by design?

    I've expected that disabled parameter can't be changed from UI.

    In attachment step by step example with one of default effects

  8. Missing curent render information v.2020

    Missing Important function (curent render information show when click "current render"):

    In the latest version of the program (2022), information about the currently rendered item is missing.

    See the picture.

    This feature saved the project a couple of times by pinpointing the layer in the composition that was causing the problem.
    Please restore functions.

    Regards.

  9. Adobe Media Icons - All Purple...Please fix, I don't like scanning icons when I'm in a rush.

    Adobe An, Ae, Au, Pr and Ae are all purple. I'm tired of accidentally clicking the wrong answer, Trebek (oooh sorry) and having to force shut down and click the next icon.

    This table of elements quiz and answer to which icon is the software is redundant and weary.

    Red used to = Animate (at least)

    Please have branding segment: image | motion | video | audio

    Thanks for reading

  10. Sort files by insertion time

    I've just downloaded a bunch of stock footage, and when imported it into AE i realised that I can't view them by insertion time (like the computer file explorer). Is it possible to add a column in the project file list to sort by import time?

  11. Grid view of project files in After Effects just like Premiere Pro

    As an Adobe user across the various softwares such as AE and PR I found it difficult to keep track after my project files in AE. I need to select each and every file in the enormous list of imported files just to preview it. This process take lots of time and it could be great if the UI could support this function

  12. Display Options

    In the Display Options, add a checkbox for the Anchor Point so that you can hide the Handles while keeping the Anchor Points displayed. In this configuration the Snapping tool would only be able to snap on the Anchor Points and not on the Handles.

  13. A wider zoom slider in the timeline window

    So many zoom options in After Effects but none that actually zooms in small steps or is easy to increase/decrease. The zoom slider in the timeline window is like 2cm wide but the scroll slider to the right of it is about 20cm. I would love it if you made the Zoom slider like 3 times wider so I can be more precise while zooming? That would be great! :)

  15. Proper expression debugging

    Ideally coupled with a floating/docking expression window that can be pinned to specific expression instances, and a unified list of expressions used throughout project.

    • Variable watch
    • Breakpoints & code stepping
    • Value peeking/intellisense on mouse-over

  16. Box-select a group of keyframes and have the timeline zoom to fit that range.

    When comps get large and you need to work on one region in detail, be able to box-select some keys and hit a hotkey to zoom the timeline view to that region (with a few frames beyond either side of first/last key)

    Option-hotkey to also trim work area to that range in one step.

  17. Bezier Warp's handles/tangents should follow points/vertices

    Unlike every other Bezier control in the Adobe world, when I move a Bezier Warp Vertex, its associated handles (Tangents) do not follow it. Could we please have an option (a checkbox in the effect's control panel would be perfect) to enable this to happen? It's really annoying having to move a point, then each one of its handles, and leads to unwanted distortions.

  18. Button to create null objects and adjustment layers

    Quick search field in the timeline is so big... It would be great to have buttons in that area (reducing the search field size) to create nulls and adjustment layers with a mouse click. Also, it would be great the NULL to have the option to link selected layers directly clicking on the button.

  19. Speculative Preview: A way to disable it

    My scenes are intense. letting it do it's thing will fill up 128 GB of ram in no time. Having to purge memory every time i come back to AE has given me carpal tunnel. AT LEAST have it respect the skip frame setting. I set my work area very specifically to account for RAM availability at a particular skip frame.
