  2. Create folder containing selected items in Project panel

    When selecting multiple files in the Project panel and pressing 'Create New Folder' a new folder should be created with all the selected files inside. Instead of then having to manually move all files in.
    Perhaps this could be done by holding down a key and pressing Create a new folder, maybe CMD and click?

  3. Add Purge Disk Cache (only) to Edit>Purge menu

    The TWO Memory related purges under Edit>Purge> also remove the Undo history - this is bad.
    Edit>Purge>ImageCache is fine as it is.
    Need quicker access to only purge the Disk Cache; without having to dive into the Prefs Dialog.

  4. Search for text layers

    Recently needed to change multiple text layer names and had to manually open every comp and find them. Would be nice to be able to search for them by name or content (either would be handy).

  5. What if every parameter of an every effect could be duplicatable?...

    For purposes, like:
    Lumetri Color, exposure slider from -7 to 7 what If I need more of it,
    Radial Blur what if I need more then hundred but within one controllable center,
    Transform FX, what if I need just to double offset per layer by index but still want to maintain general offset controls for all of them, and one last I'd like to go opposite direction...
    Imagine How easy would be offsetting values linked to expressions by just duplicating the needed parameter inside layer dropdown menu, just like inside the compositing option right now has mask input that could…

  8. Lighting options in Glass Wipe transition

    I know the current Glass Wipe transition is technically CyCore's domain, but here goes. Would like the ability to adjust the lighting properties for the CC Glass Wipe transition. There is currently no brightness, light angle, highlight control, or anything, which is odd since the effect is so similar to CC Glass.

  9. Allow "snapping" of layers to certain time codes

    When I trim down a layer, I should be able to have the "snapping" option, to ensure it is inline with the other layers. Similar to Premiere Pro, where you get that red line when something is perfectly aligned with something else

  10. Fix Interface Performance Issues Mac OSX 10.11.6

    I'm experiencing multiple slow downs in the After Effects interface. Here is a clear example of what I am experiencing with drawing masks in the render view. I'm comparing CC2014 vs CC2018.
    https://app.frame.io/d/e510f299-0387-4841-a19a-494a9d6f37d3

    Same machine on both. ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB. Triple monitor setup. I usually have Chrome and PureRef open. I've noticed it get much worse when Illustrator 2018 is also open at the same time. I can't even play a simple two keyframe box animation at full frame rate even when RAM previewed. https://imgur.com/a/YViDTXU

    Sometimes the interface gets so slow that I can see the little twirl…

  11. Please fix issue with views on new project. I cannot fix the application layout to fit my laptop screen on initial load.

    Please fix issue with views on new project. I cannot fix the application layout to fit my laptop screen on initial load. This is preventing me from having fun with an art project I was hoping to spend time on. Completely frustrating.

  14. every effect, every layer and shape transform to be dupliactable and scalable

    so like the compositing option under each effect where you can duplicate and create mask input as many as needed, why won't there be a transform for each effect and why won't add duplicatable transform to be available.
    Because so many times you just need another transform offset for a particular effect, or particular mask or particular shape and you have to workaround it like adding transform FX or offset effects, or duplicating and cutting out and adding back in the second layer...

  15. A vector field displacement effect

    It would be very helpful for a lot of generative effects to create warping fields that are less rigid than mesh or bezier warp. Something like in step one of this project.

  16. Frame rate mismatch with rotobrush

    What is going on here? I'm working with all the same footage, within the same project, and all of a sudden rotobrush won't work because "frame rate mismatch". I search the internet for the source of my mistake, but I can't find it :( TONS of people are having this problem, and there are workarounds (I can export it as and re-import it- but I shouldn't have to do that) but NO SOLUTIONS. What is the problem? What are we doing wrong??? PLEASE ADOBE! TELL US!!! I don't want workarounds, I want the answer.

  17. Copying and moving mask animations on the same layer

    When having several masks on the same layer, you cannot curently copy and move them to another position on your layer (as to make the same animation play in two different positions on your layer). When selcting all of the keyframes for one or several masks, if you then try to move them, it creates a new keyframe on the CTI for where you have put your mask, rusulting in wonky animations. I would like it if when selecting all the keyframes for one or several masks, and move the mask, it moves the position of the mask on all…

  20. Lumetri Color to show exact values in wheels and hue

    wheels are abstract and could not be linked with expressions, because there are no values. could be helpful in cases if you'd need to reverse the wheels with exact values
