  2. BUG: AE v.18.1- Shape and Mask vector line doesn't align to shape or mask

    In v.18.1 After Effects, the editable vector line describing a shape or mask does not align to the shape or mask. It is offset by 1-2 pixels, which makes accurate work difficult.

  3. After Effectsの音の不具合

    After Effects 22.0.1を使っていますが、音声のオーバーラップをすると、途中で音量が一瞬小さくなります。CS6の時代は問題なく使えました。…というか、何でこのページ、英語ばっかりなんだ!

  4. 3D workspace layout

    Since the update 18.0, 2021, the old layout options for 3D has been removed. The old (17.5) used to look like the picture.

    Now you have options for:
    1 views
    2 views
    4 views

    You used to have options for:
    1 views
    2 views (horizontal/vertical)
    4 views (top/bottom/left/right)

    4 views - TOP for example (as in the picture) would then allow for a big "main" window and three smaller windows.

    Why is this necessary to still have?

    When I (and I guess a lot of other people) work with 3D in AE, we merely use for example the TOP and…

  6. Layer effect source

    When setting effect layer source, I would like to see this option:

    Source
    Masks
    Effects & Masks
    Effects & Masks & Transform

    I need this almost every time. Would save a ton of unnecessary precompositing.

  7. Mp4 files showing green glitches, both in preview and rendering

    Whenever I import a mp4 file it appears green, even though the files are not corrupted or damaged. Sometimes in the preview I can see the file appear normal, without any issues and when I render it shows like a green screen. This doesn't happen when I import the same file into premiere so I assume the problem is with After Effects

  8. Allow altering Time Remapping on Replaced footage in MOGRTs

    I work for an in-house media team and we create a lot of branded MOGRTs for our editors to use, some of which require asset replacement. I cant pin down the intricacies of when Time Remapping works and doesnt work when replacing the asset but I'd love to be able to adjust the Time Remapping of an imported layer confidently when using a MOGRT in Premiere when controlling TR with expressions. I know there is a warning in AE when exporting a MOGRT that Time Remapping isnt supported in replaced layers and I would love for it to be supported.…

  10. (optional) Automatic renaming of files on import based on file type

    If the setting is activated, upon dragging files into AE a rename files dialogue box would appear, asking whether the user wants to rename the file(s) within AE or keep the original file name. The user has the option to specify the prefix for each file type within the settings for this option.

    For example, I import 5 images and have used "img" as the prefix, then the images will be renamed within AE to:

    img1, img2, img3, img4, img5

  11. Toggle to switch between using property index or property name as default when pickwhipping

    When pickwhipping an effect while holding Alt/Option, After Effects refers to the property by index, eg. ("Slider Control")(1), instead of by property name, eg. ("Slider Control")("Slider").

    I often use this, as I deal with clients in multiple languages, and the property index reference is more robust in this case. I would appreciate a toggle in Preferences to switch this behaviour so that using property index is the default for pickwhipping (no modifier keys needed), and property name is used when holding Alt/Option.

  13. Center anchor point for each group transform in a shape layer

    There is no automatic way to center an anchor point for each transform group inside a shape layer. I need to select each group using "Y" (Pan Behind) and move it's anchor to the center of each shape group, because After effects put all. of then in the center of the layer (the group of all shape layers groups inside a shape layer. So, it's time to have this option and a shortcut to do it all in a row right?

  14. Make Sequence Layers work for Brush Strokes too

    The real time paint feature is nice, but it would be nice to just write and then sequence the strokes automatically afterwards.

  16. Expose Paragraph Text Box Width/Height for Expressions

    It's currently impossible within expressions to set the width or height of a Paragraph Text box.

    This would be a massively helpful feature for text-based templates and animations.
