  1. Include OpenColorIO support

    It would be great if After Effects (similar to Nuke and Fusion) could include support for OpenColorIO as a standard. There is a 3rd party plugin however it has recently been causing issues with the "Warp Stabilizer VFX" effect.

  3. access to other text document object properties and per character settings

    right now I cant set per character styles with extendscript and the text document object. if i try to set the style it affects the whole string. It would be nice to loop through a string and have different styles for specific characters.

  4. IMPROVE MASTER PROPERTIES (GENERAL NON DESTRUCTIVE WORKFLOW)

    After Effects has great options for realizing a non destructive workflow, but when you have many layers, it is difficult for you to maintain a certain order. The new master properties are great for resolving that and for having a even more non destructive workflow.

    On the other hand master properties should improve a lot if they want to be as useful as node based workflow.

    ADOBE, you could use both layer based and node based workflows. Cinema 4D has this kind of combination. I think the best workflow is use the bests of both two worlds....

    Or maybe not,…

  5. Extend marker duration backwards

    Currently, you can extend a marker's duration forward in time by holding Alt/Option and dragging. I would like to add the ability to extend marker duration backwards so the in point would automatically become the end point, thus allowing you to extend the in point toward the beginning of the timeline.

  6. Bug - Stroke Width

    If you enter text into the stroke width in the toolbar and hit enter, the text box stays selected though the UI no longer shows it that way. If you then hit 0 to preview, you'll make your stroke 0 and have no idea why they're gone or why nothing is previewing. Please fix.

  7. Sort by numbers in Project pane

    When image sequences and stills are imported they should be sorted by name and number. Furthermore if images and image sequences are named with numbers first, the sorting is not logical. See attached screenshot showing the issue.

  8. track matte per effect

    The possibility to add mask per effects through the compositing options was a great addition would be great to be also able to choose another layer as a track matte for each effect the way set matte works.

  9. PLANAR TRACKING/STABILIZING AS MOCHA

    You could improve the After Effects tracking/stabilizing tools using the planar tracking method (as Mocha) instead of traditional point tracking method.

  13. Adobe 21 Century vs. Footage (none) Window

    Dear Adobe, may we remove "Footage (none)" Window if there is no purpose for it if, uhm, well, no footage is there?
    For the sake of good ole housekeeping or wait unless we hit 22nd century?

  15. *********IMPORTANT:https://www.behance.net/gallery/67706495/Adobe-Lumetri-CC-Prototype

    But NO as another app. It needs to be an improved version of Lumetri modules of After Effects and Premiere Pro, because of the Adobe fluid (non destructive) workflow. It has more sense than developing another kind of Speed Grade as another one app:(. All in one is really better ;)

  16. Bug 15.1.0 and 15.1.1: Cached preview needs 2 ore more frames to playback

    I suddenly received the error "Cached Preview needs 2 ore more frames to playback" for a project and export also did not work anymore. It is reproducible on macOS 10.12.6 and 10.13.5 with 15.1.0 and 15.1.1. I went back to 15.0.1 and it works (upgrading again to 15.1.1 leads to the fact that it does not work anymore again).

  18. Improve PNG Sequences

    I'm seeing it more & more, especially when I do a Time-Reverse layer. Sometimes my PNG Sequences have random blank frames where my art should be visible. Sometimes zooming in & back out again fixes it, sometimes not. It's incredibly frustrating.

    SIDENOTE: Your hyperlink to "Bug Reports" on forums.adobe.com is broken. It's probably a mis-typed link.

  19. Make common tasks faster/ easier like the Motion v2 plugin does

    I know this is a rather open request, but I highly recommend someone on the AE dev team checks this out and tries to update AE to be easier and quicker to use expressions, null, track matte/ mask, organize/ rename layers, etc.

  20. AE community library of common and working expressions

    it would be great to have an effects-like window where we could contribute to and draw from common expressions like continuous rotation, inertia, bounce etc.

    Rather than having to code each time or refer to an external text document.
