  2. Enable any effect to address an individual RGBA channel

    Some effects, like Levels and Curves, allow one to isolate the effect to a single RGBA channel. Make this option available to all effects.

  4. Preference to reverse the horizontal option-scrollwheel scrolling direction.

    I finally adjusted my mindset to Apple's preferred vertical scrolling, but by switching the vertical scroll direction it also swapped the horizontal option-scroll, but frankly that makes no sense. A preference to switch it back within AE would be great!

  5. Bringing back the scrollbar in the Character list.

    Just give us back our scrollbar in the Character list! AE had it, they dropped it in the previous version because the developers didn't have the time to implement it. Adobe promised to get it back in there in the latest version. Guess what? They didn't.
    So please, put it back in there!

  9. effects to be cloned and connected through entirely in the project

    so that if you change any of them - others will follow. Not like when linking them - that they have a mother effect

  10. Show Keyframe connection

    This interface tweak is as usefull as it is simple. Even before implementing a label colors for keyframes I think this one will be a massive improvement for clarifying the timeline when you have a lot of keyframe.

  11. I have run in to an issue where if I have an AE Project made in a version before 15.1 it won't open in 15.1.

    If I open a project made before 15.1 (15.0.1) it won't open the project, but sit there spinning and freeze up eventually. Old projects/templates won't import/open in premiere either.

    After the most recent update, After Effects won't open a file I NEED to open. (it could always open it before the update)

  15. better handling of large illustrators files

    Large (pixel wise) illustrator files take forever to preview the first time you open it in your comp, I don't recall it being that long I would say prior to CC2015 please take a look at it

  16. 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.

  17. Essential Graphics Bug

    Need to fix a bug in the system. Killing projects by trying to use Essential Graphics is essentially a bad way of business.

    I'm stuck in a loop with the error
    After Effects error: internal verification failure, sorry! (stream at index has gone wrong matchname)

    This is the first time I've seen this error.

  18. Bug: "Create Nulls from Points" and 3D layers

    There is a bug with the the "Create Nulls from Points" feature. If all the nulls and layers are set to 3D, and then the project is closed and opened again, After Effects will crash (i.e. the file is corrupted). Leaving the layers as 2D seems to work fine.

  19. Bug after updating to 15.1

    After updating Ae to the current version the program became buggy.

    Pop-up dialogue boxes are just white (no buttons visible), program becomes unresponsive and can't perform tasks like pre-compose.

    macOS High Sierra 10.13.4

    Help!

  20. 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.
