  1. Keep multiple timeline windows exactly where I left them when I reopen a project

    Make each project remember how I had timelines and windows arranged so it opens EXACTLY as it was when I last used that project. I arrange things differently with some projects and saving a workspace DOES NOT keep my timeline windows arranged in order nor remember that multiple timeline windows were open. I often leave small pre-comps in the default location under the Composition window and open a separate Timeline window for large comps in a second monitor so I can open things up and see all the layers. These setups are NEVER remembered and it gets annoying to re-order…

  2. Smart Sort By Name

    The Project panel sort by name could be smarter. If you have your comps numbered sequentially and then add a letter to the end (say, a new shot 2B gets added between shots 2 and 3), shot 2B sorts below everything. Attached screen shot helps show what I mean.

  3. Legacy Puppet causing consistent hard crash

    CC2018 (15.1.0-build166)
    Ive been able to recreate this error consistently on MacOS 10.12.6:
    1. apply a puppet mesh to a comp
    2. Switch to Legacy Puppet
    3. Adjust to desired mesh density
    4. Duplicate the comp layer
    5. further interaction with these layers results in hard crash

  4. Layer Styles

    It would be great to have the same Layer Style options like in Photoshop. I mean, if I have created a Stroke with a gradient in Photoshop, I would like to edit that gradient in After Effects to create some animation fx. And more important, when I make a PSD test layer editable in After Effects, I loose some times the layer style fx in After Effects.

  5. Fuse Integration

    Used Fuse and Photoshop to create 3D characters but it would be phenomenal if these characters could be imported into After Effects and where the AE lights, cameras, and the C4D renderer could be used to composite a scene. Please consider integrating Fuse and After Effects.

  6. Bug Report: AE Freezes after importing a folder as an image sequence that's missing images

    If I try to drag and drop a folder full of images that have the same name but different numbers at the end AE will give me the error: After Effects warning: "-.jpg" is missing frames (-***)." and freeze.

    This happens a lot since I usually work with Getty images where the names are: GettyImages-97353563.jpg, GettyImages-31104384.jpg, etc...

    If I hold ALT when dragging the folder in it imports the folder fine without freezing (as a folder full of images). If I change the names of all the images so they're not the same it'll import fine without…

  7. UI Fontsize scalable

    I'm getting older, Screens get higher relosutions, font size in AE stays the same. Very tiny.
    That's not good.
    Please add the feature to scale the font-size. In the best case for every window seperately.

    cheers
    Sebastian

  8. Python support - EOL extendscript

    It's time to move off that old 1995 extendscript and get with Python! I know this is a big one, but we could REALLY use python support for AE. Commandline rendering is incredibly limited and python would be a total game changer for plenty of studios out there. And if Adobe had the idea that their users are not advanced for something like that just look at all of the new stuff constantly appearing on aescripts.com. You have plenty of nerdy developers!

    Nuf said.

  9. Could Ae have it's own exponential glow?

    So you don't have to recreate it each time buy duplicating and connecting controls, should be easy to machine learn it - on how people tend to use such effects and implement clever controls (look at how plugin Saber from video copilot deals with glow - that's terrific!)

  10. Collect files also collects the fonts used in the project

    When collecting the files of a project, also collect the file for the fonts used in the compositions in case the project needs to be transferred to a different computer etc.

  11. 32 bpc FX (ALL OF THEM)

    You could update all the effects to make a precise compatibility between them and 32 bpc footage and compositions.

  12. Problem with AE CC 2018 and Motionland Big pack of Elements

    I am having a problem with After Effects CC 2018, and I'm wondering if anyone can help?

    I am having trouble using the Motionland Big Pack of Elements - a collection of icons, titles etc for after effects. Some of the elements of the pack work fine, but with some titles and icons I am finding that the composition will not play, and I get the following error message:

    "After Effects error: TDL: outline contains triangles that are too small to be rendered. Check for very thin triangles in original artwork. (88 :: 3)"

  13. Vector Brush

    Please add a brush that you can use to draw vector shapes like you would in Illustrator or Flash. The pen tool is right there already. Thank you.

  14. Provide Option to Turn off "Image-Adaptive" when importing Cinema DNG RAW sequences

    DJI cameras that shoot RAW video record in the CinemaDNG format. There are two options for converting this to an editable intermediary: 1. Davinci Resolve or 2. Adobe After Effects. Grading through ACR and importing into AE produces the best image quality, however, it often produces flicker. The ACR process has an adaptive function that changes the overall image exposure. This "image-adaptive" function works on single images but on image sequences like CinemaDNG, it can produce flicker. There needs to be an option to disable this adaptive function if importing an image sequence.

  15. font

    PLEASE fix the bug that does not recognize third party fonts and forces you to manually update every single text layer to the correct font. It's an issue in the latest versions of After Effects and Premiere and in typography-heavy projects, this has been an absolute nightmare that is costing our team hours of work.

  17. The selection tool should be able to work with keyframes and layers seperately.

    The selection tool is capable of doing far too many thing concurrently. On the timeline, it can select text, select layers, move layers, select keyframes, move keyframes, and more.
    For this reason, a selection marquee intended for keyframes can only be drawn if the user begins clicking and dragging from a grey section of the timeline. (But NOT if that is the text area for an expression!) This must be very carefully done, since it will otherwise result in layers being moved accidentally.
    I propose that a preference be added, which, if enabled, would require the user to hold down…

  18. Create a keyboard shortcut for the transparency grid's switch (at the bottom of the composition viewer).

    Unless there's an underlying programming issue, this seems like an easy lay up.

  19. Timeline shortcuts in macbook pro touchbar

    I got the new macbook pro and I miss having shortcuts in my touchbar for after effects.
    We could have some shortcuts like:
    - Zoom in and out;
    - Go to next animation keyframe
    - Set shortcuts for favorite effects;
    - Audiowave control / visualization

  20. Crop comp tool

    Working between Photoshop and After Effects, the one thing I find a bit annoying in AE is the resizing of compositions. Especially with imported psd/psb objects. It would be cool to have a crop comp tool similar to the crop tool in Photoshop.
