  2. Copy paste videos from Premiere to After effects is broken once again

    I can only verrrrryyy sporadically after a fresh reboot copy/paste videos from my premiere timeline over to after effects.
    This is one of the last key advantages that Premiere has over Resolve, so it should better start working again asap.

    I'm on afx 22.4.1 and Premiere 22.0 and mac os 12.4.

  3. Labels and Folders in Effect controls panel

    Having the ability to organize and label effects inside of the effect control panel. The folders should have a primarily organizational function and not necessarily operational.

  4. Identify layers by moving curser over monitor panel.

    When re-visiting a composition with MANY layers and elements, I find it takes time to locate the correct layer pertaining to say, a graphic I can see on the monitor display. It would be great to hold down a key, and activate a mode in which a layer would highlight when the curser on the monitor display holds on its associated object.

  5. poster frame

    When you click Export Motion Graphics Template in the Essential Graphics panel, the poster frame changes to the current settings in the panel.

    I want to set a poster frame with specific settings but export with different setting so users in Premiere Pro start with a default config.

    Clicking Export should not change the poster frame I previously set.

  6. Default Output folder and Output Module per Project

    Most of the time, I am working on multiple projects per day, switching several time. Each time I have to set the Output Folder and the Output Module for each.
    Why not store those in the Project Settings? (accessible from the Render Queue for user convenience :-)

  7. Team project Essential graphics

    When working in a Team project the option to right click a comp and select "Essential graphics" is greyed out. The only way to access Essential graphics is to open Essential graphics window and select comp from list. But that's a much harder way to get to the right comp because you loose the folder structure and timeline connection.

  8. Mac OS Dock Icon - Right Click, Recent Projects

    Using AE in Windows, it's great to be able to right click on the AE icon in the taskbar and select a recent project. Can we bring that same functionality to the Mac with the icon in the dock please?

  9. 'Output Module' information from After Effects to carry to Media Encoder 'format'

    We have situations where we have a large number of comps in After Effects in the render queue - but they are set to render as different formats. We'd like to be able to send those to Media Encoder and retain that format information.

    Currently the Output Module information doesn't carry over and needs to be manually updated

  10. Separate Audio & Video renderer, so when I adjust audio it doesn't have to rerender everything

    Separate Audio & Video renderer, so when I adjust audio it doesn't have to rerender everything.

    Currently when you move a audio layer, it has to rerender the entire sequence whyyy????
    Make the audio & video separate so now I can move my audio without having to rerender everything. Or add effects and trim without having to rerender.

  13. Blend attribute for multiple shape layers

    Considering Offset Paths already indicates that it is possible to increase or decrease bounds of a keyframe-able path within a shape layer, and that an individual path's points can obviously be keyframed, I would imagine that a Blend attribute could be theoretically possible, interpolating stacked paths—much like the functionality within Illustrator.

    In the context, I imagine it could operate somewhat similarly to a Merge attribute, which also works with constituent paths—the key difference being that of identifying the number of intermediate paths and interpolating the two (or more) by a set number of keyframeable instances.

  14. More robust Round Corners functionality for merged paths within a shape layer

    Round Corners offers a great, fast way to introduce rounding to otherwise sharp vertices—but this functionality does not consider several shapes as a single form when first using Merge Layers in the stacking order. If applying a fill or stroke to merged objects as a single shape is possible, why not rounded corners that considers merged objects as a single shape too?

  15. Warp Tool for Shape Layers / Masks / Paths

    A Warp Tool like the one in Adobe Illustrator would be a gigantic help and a powerful tool when working with Shape Layers, Masks or Paths.

    It would work like the way Warp Tool in AI does when both "Detail" and "Simplify" are turned OFF in the brush settings; ie. not adding or removing vertices (so that inbetweening of keyframes would not be broken).

  16. After latest update I can't even move a shape layers without it pinwheeling...

    After last update After Effects pinwheels just moving shape layers. The entire comp is nothing but basic shape layers and yet any slight move or adjustment to them results in the pinwheel having to tick every single time for a second or more. I'm about to downgrade because this is untenable, but I shouldn't be surprised at this point. I'm on a brand new topped off 16" M1 MacBook Pro Max with latest Monterey.

  18. Glyph support in Essential Graphics

    Currently, AE and Premiere Pro only support 'regular' text in Essential Graphics text values.
    It would be great to incorporate and make it compatible with glyphs, which many Opentype font have.

  19. Effect Masks sometimes produce Glitches

    Hi,

    so this is an issue I've run into for some time now. Every once in a while, effect masks produce glitches on the image. So in this example, I'm using the blue mask as a mask reference on a Curves effect. The first image shows my layer with the Curves effect turned off, the second image with the Curves effect turned on. You see that glitches appear on the layer. This issue is really hard to reproduce as it just occurs very infrequently. But when it does, there seems to be no way to get it to work anymore.…

  20. Close without saving

    I do not always want to save my project!
    Please allow me to close the application without saving!
    Windows11 / latest AE
    Strange new behaviour forces me to save.
    It is like not being allowed to leave a restraunt unless you finish your plate!
