  2. Create bulleted text lists easily

    If several lines of text could be bulleted, easily placed in the right position relative to eachother and animated as a group or individually more like in Powerpoint, that would be so helpful.

  6. Dismiss all files not found

    Either provide a list of all the missing footage or files, or give me a dismiss all button. I don't need to hit OK hundreds of times before I can just look for an expression in an unarchived project.

  12. Bug: Keyframes disappear in video files with >3hr timecodes

    Bug description: When adding keyframes to a layer using a video file which is over three hours in length, any keyframes added past 2:59:59:29 are not rendered in the Timeline panel, regardless of when the video file is placed in the Composition. Keyframes still function but are not visible or selectable with the cursor.

    Reproduced on both Mac OS and Windows, 15.1.0.

    It appears linked to the maximum composition length After Effects has of three hours? This seems arbitrary now it's a purely 64-bit application, and Premiere can cope with 24-hour timelines with larger timecodes?

  13. Make expression text remain the same size, regardless of whether or not is is "Active"

    When clicking on the expression text to make it active, the font size changes which shifts the text around. Once this happens, I again have to find the part I was trying to click on in the first place. The more text there is, the worse this problem becomes.

    This also isn't specific to expression text; the same issues occur when renaming layers, as well as just about any other UI element that allows you to edit text.

  14. Make Ae Comp Size change more flexible, by setting the anchor (like Ps Canvas Size).

    Ae assumes that when changing the Comp size, the center should stay in the middle. But there are situations where whe want to extend the comp in one direction. In those cases, selecting an Anchor would be great. Just like in Ps Canvas Size.

  17. Long words disappear

    When typing very long words using a paragraph text, at some point (after a certain amount of characters), the text just disappears completely. Especially when using text to create walls of numbers or something (not using expressions to maintain the control) this gets very annoying. This bug has been filed 2010 already and is still present.

  18. After Effects CC scaling glitch in Ae Render & embedded MOGRT

    I've found a bug in the current build of After Effects CC2018 (Version 15.1.1, Build 12). There's a scaling glitch that manifests such that Ae Render Queue setup treats the scaled preview resolution as the composition maximum resolution (SD for a UHD comp), and treats a UHD output as an upscale of the SD preview size. It also appears to affect MOGRT files exported to use in Premiere Pro.

    I've been troubleshooting this all day today and made little headway, but after finding this thread the proposed solution (to set the "Resolution/Down Sample Factor Popup" to "Full") allows the comp…
