  1. import

    Bug: jpeg importer does not import correctly. When importing multiple jpeg files, they show up as the same image, i.e., the file names are correct in the project panel, but when opening them in the footage viewer or placing them in a sequence, they are all either the same image or 1 of 2 different images. if the file type is changed to pngs, all images display correctly.

  2. Access text properties (kerning, font size, leading, etc) via scripting

    We need more access to text properties via scripting. It will be helpful to change, for example, the font size of a text layer via scripting, that way the textbox stay the same size becouse right now I can only change the scale of the layer and it changes all proportions of the layer (height and with in pixels, size of the textbox).
    If we can access to that properties via scripting we can let all LayerObject attributes the same (textboxes, width, height, scale) and only change font size, leading, kerning, tracking, text stroke width, color, etc).

    Thanks for your…

  4. On write-on, move CTI to last keyframe of each stroke.

    In the paint panel, when you have the write-on option selected, every time you make a stroke and let go, it disappears, because keyframes are added, but the CTI stays at the time of the first keyframe. Instead, make it so the CTI moves to the last keyframe of each new stroke, so the strokes stay visible and it is much more natural to keep drawing.

  6. 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.

  10. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
