  1. UBUNTU/GNU/LINUX

    You could make Creative Cloud compatible with UBUNTU/LINUX and another one free operating system.

  2. buy Black Magic Design

    The new DaVinci Resolve 16 is really useful for almost all the disciplines of video post production.
    That is why a lot of people are leaving Adobe video and audio apps. So, what is the solution for that?

  3. please separate feature request and bug report on the uservoice

    Using the uservoice is a great choice from adobe but mixing bugs and feature requests makes it a little hard to read. What I suggest is just to create a new channel for each software dedicated to bug reports this would look like After effects bug report , Premiere pro bug report ...

    We like your thinking!
    Every idea is a feature request.
    Bug reports should go to support, not User Voice; making a channel would only encourage further bug reports here; users encountering issues should contact Support instead.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Photoshop as an OFX plugin

    Having worked with Nuke, I have often thought that it would be great if one could incorporate and automate Photoshop in Nuke projects as an OFX plugin. While in Nuke, I often think that, would it not be great, if I could simply drop a Photoshop node into my Nuke script to then chose one of its many powerful tools which I know could get the job done quicker and more elegantly. For example, imagine dropping a Photoshop node into a Nuke script and choosing the quick select tool, and then animate not only the location of the selection across…

  7. Essential graphics panel bugs

    The essential graphics panel in AE CC 2018 15.1.0 is pretty glitchy.

    1) I have a large panel mapped to a complex comp. Then panel graphics & sliders intermittently get scrambled and piled on top of each other when I scroll the panel contents up and down

    2) If I assign a new version of the comp to the panel, the text in the right side of all the text comment fields I've added to the panel disappears and I have to re-enter it all. The left side label of the comment persists, only the right side values get cleared.

    Thanks again for the excellent feedback. We (the Graphics team) have captured several items from it as bugs and requests which we will take action on as time permits. So I am closing this request now, since it encompasses too many things to vote on as a whole. In the future, if you are able to submit requests separately, we can leave them open so that people can add their own votes and/or comments if they wish.

  8. Make ripple Artboard tool in Illustrator

    As someone who uses Illustrator to design much of my artwork for animation in After Effects there's one tool that I find I constantly need and instead just muddle through manually cutting, copying and pasting.

    It'd be great to have a tool in AI that would insert a new Artboard between say frames 9 and 10, and then move all the artwork from frame 10 on up to the next artboards (frames 11, 12, 13, 14, etc.) I think of like a ripple edit tool. You can insert or delete a frame (artboard) and the artwork on all the artboards…

  9. PROCEDURAL WORKFLOW

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