    True that! Better yet it would be good to have the spectrum analyzer from Audition (I find it more useful for picking out voices and stuff)

    And for the record I do believe AE is the last major VFX software to not support Python. Mocha even has a friggin python API! And who the heck is writing scripts for Mocha!

    @Anonymous both actually. I'm not just saying that I "like" python over JS, because that isn't really the issue here. The issue is that I love python over this archaic 1995 version of JS! Take file handling for example. Python can scan a directory roughly 10x faster than Extendscript and I have no idea why. It is so bad that I have written my scripts to call external python scripts and parse the results back in via pipes whenever I need to access files/folders. Then there's the matter of community - python has SO many modules out there that can do virtually anything. Try finding a machine learning toolkit for Extendscript... Yet imagine if python was integrated into AE the way it is in Nuke or Houdini - you could build whole AI systems right in After Effects. They could even open up some of the C++ api to Python and we could start writing plug-ins! (remember the old pixel bender days?)

    And while we're at it lets just switch to python already! This old 1995 javascript is killing me... I dread scripting for AE these days.

    This has been in AE for at least 10 years. Just turn on the layer motion blur and masks should be motion blurred as well. You can manually turn it on by clicking "Layer" in the menu bar "Mask > Motion Blur"

    I hear you on this one! I've programmed my own file browser in python just to get around this...

    Hello everybody!

    (This post was co-authored by Tim Kurkoski (After Effects Product Owner), Andrew Cheyne (After Effects Engineering Manager), and Victoria Nece (After Effects Product Manager).)

    This thread has been sitting here for quite a while without a response. To start, we want to apologize for that. We haven’t been ignoring you or your feedback – this is just a particularly complex topic. That said, it’s time for us to check in with you, clarify a few things, and give you an idea of what we’re looking at for the future of After Effects, especially when it comes to performance.

    To start, we fully understand that you want After Effects to be as fast as it can be – utilizing your computer’s hardware resources to render as fast as possible. Over the last several years, we have been working on the performance of After Effects constantly. Sometimes those performance gains…
