  4. Enable audio scrubbing without holding Ctrl, to prevent hand injury

    My hand hurts holding down Ctrl the whole time. Makes lipsyncing multiple projects painful for my arthritis.

  6. 3d controls

    The new 3d control as of After Effect v.17.5 are way too bulky and obstruct the viewport. Please include a legacy control axis or an option to scale the control axis.
    Most projects have enough clutter without huge child safe 3d axis controls filling the viewport.

    (yes I realize you can toggle the view of the controls on an off, but that isn't very helpful as you are working.)

  7. Snapshot Button - Less Grating Noise

    This issue may seem trivial, but anybody else cringe every time they use the snapshot button? The noise literally hurts my ears. It's too loud and not pleasing at all. I believe this is the only item in the UI that makes a noise - is there any way to get a more pleasing chime, or maybe just a visual cue that a snapshot has been taken?

  10. How to combine custom kb shortcut set with new default kb shortcut set (AE 17.5)

    With AE 17.5 new keyboard shortcuts for new features are introduced. Is there a way to add my custom shortcuts to the new default shortcut set as it contains new shortcuts for new functionality which are not part of the old custom kb shortcut set?

    I’m using the English version with a German keyboard so I remapped quite a lot of shortcuts. I guess there is no easy way to do this …

    Thank you!

  11. Add transparency value indication to layers in time line

    Making the color of the layers change depending on the transparency instead of a solid color, maybe a pattern that gets more visible the lower the transparency.

  12. Upon opening AE I get weird window / cursor bugs

    When I open AE sometimes (maybe 50%?), the screen will turn black for a second or so and then come back on. I've read in other forums that this might be the computer switching graphics cards so really not even a problem.

    The bug i'm experiencing is after it finishes opening (and only after screen goes black). All windows will sometimes be stuck above the mac menu bar and I can't reset them. Accompanying this bug is a weird selection bug where I can't click a layer, it just automatically tries to drag it where ever my mouse goes after.…

  13. Shape trim paths should come after taper and wave operations

    Using trim paths, I'm trying to animate a shape stroke that has a taper added to the start and end of the stroke. Taper is calculated relative to the length of the stroke, which AE recognises as changing according to the percentage completion of the trim paths.

    This might be what you'd want some of the time, but I just want to animate the stroke like a pen mark being written on. The line left by a pen nib would not be shifting its thickness as it is being drawn on.

  14. camera raw seq import issue

    we use came raw regularly for our cg renders by applying camera raw effect on while importing but it becomes very painful as most of the time there are few glitch frame or missing frames and when those frames are fixed and re-rendered and put into seq folder camera raw effect don't get applied on that automatically
    it would be great to get full control after importing seq so this issue will be solved also we wish to animate some paramiters as well

  15. Effects should remain collapsed when copying/duplicating layers

    This has frustrated me for years. I put a lot of effort into making things tidy for my template users, like collapsing large quantities of effects or controls in the Effect Controls panel. But when those layers are duplicated, copied and pasted, or when the comp is duplicated, all the effects on those layer expand, making it hard for them to find the effect they're looking for.

    I have also noticed that the collapse-state of effects is saved with inconsistent results when opening the project in a later version of AE. Some of those effects will be collapsed, and some…

  16. Rotate Tool Broken after updated to v17.1.3

    I updated to version 17.1.3 a few days ago. After I updated the rotate tool stopped working as expected. When I try to rotate an object a few degrees it spins the object around a crazy amount (ie rotate value 1500x+258.1degrees). I have closed after effects and relaunched several times.

  17. Bug in Team Project using Essential Graphics with nested composition.

    I'm using Team Projects for After Effects and have a face-composition with a nested mouth-composition two levels down in the face-composition.

    From the mouth-comp I've added some Essential Properties to the face-comp. This works.

    When re-opening the Team Project however, I get the following error:
    "After Effects warning: Could not create Essential Graphic parameter because it refers to a non-existent layer."
    The file opens but the master properties referring to the mouth-comp on the face-comp have all disappeared. Needless to say that is a serious problem because all keyframes added to these properties are lost.

    Don't know if this is…

  18. Shape Layer Wiggle

    We should be able to customize the Shape Layer Wiggle Path look and animation with an other layer with black and white value. Like Fractal Noise for example.

  19. Camera GUI display does not reflect expression-driven Point of Interest

    When the "Point of interest" of a camera is driven by an expression.
    Something like:
    thisComp.layer("Null 1").transform.position
    The graphical display of the camera wireframe in the interface does not reflect the value of the expression.
    It seems to be "stuck" at the Point of interests native value.

  20. Please add the ability to change fonts globally.

    When dealing with clients who want to change the font of an entire project, that could mean hundreds of font changes in many comps. Please add the ability to globally change the font as well as the font size.

    It would be amazing if this could be added as a expression control. That way i could have a font controller and say, all Title fonts should be this and this size. All subtitle fonts should be this font and this size, etc.
