  2. Node-based editing

    Layers provide a very inflexible two-dimensional editing paradigm and isn't very conducive to sharing data within a project. Instead of simply allowing node-based editing, Adobe appear to invite their own hacks such as Smart Objects for Photoshop, for example, but these still feel clunky to work with and still don't offer the flexibility that nodes do.

    What is needed is an alternative view that is node-based an allows data to flow any way a user wants and without data duplication. This should be optional workflow within all Adobe tools, but at least in Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro, and even…

    We’ve investigated node-based compositing before, and chose to keep After Effects time-based.

    At least for our video applications, the opportunities for user confusion and errors outweigh the potential benefits.

  3. Add OFX support for true cross-platform/cross-software workflows

    Cross-application/cross-software support should not be limited to Adobe products but include third-party software, too, such as DaVinci, etc. As such, what would be great is if all these tools could start conforming to a common standard when it comes to effects so that effects can be properly accessed across software and only require one set of binaries per effect that are then shared. This would also ensure that an effect wasn't translated into another vendor's effect that then may have a different implementation and may cause visual and/or audible differences.

    One such possibility would be to finally start including OFX…

    The preponderance of OFX effect vendors already sell After Effects API versions of those same effects. We will continue to prioritize stability and performance, over adding support for additional (redundant) plug-in APIs.

  4. PROCEDURAL WORKFLOW

    Creative Cloud apps need to have a more procedural workflow, for example, improve the master properties are a great way.

  5. STABILITY SUCH AS CINEMA 4D

    Maxon, your partner company, is famous for the Cinema 4D stability, so you can learn of it.
