    Dear Tim, thank you for your reply. I already copied the custom aeks file to the new preferences folder but the new commands (like for navigating 3D space) were not part of this file so they were not available in AE 17.5. I did a comparison of my custom file and the new default aeks file to see what has changed. I then went through all my edits and made a new custom file for 17.5. So it was a good thing to evaluate all my custom shortcuts create a new set with the kbsc manager.

    Dear Tim thank you for your detailed question which helped me to refine my request.

    The ALT/OPT key – I realized later – as you outlined has already functionality tied to it. Experimenting with the Shortcuts I know what you mean now depending which Shape tool is active. Yes this makes the SHIFT and CMD modifiers useless, too. What about the ESC key? To make this really helpful it should only be a single key that should be customizable for users.

    Your intuition is right and it would be a quality of life improvement to have the possibility to quickly change between drawing a mask and a shape. I don’t think that it is necessary to separate those two tools because users over the years got so used to this workflow. Now with the helping indicator you could just quickly see – “Ah, I don’t want to create another shape – I’d like to mask out my shape now.“

    I had to draw masks on shape layers quite often for instance to punch out a hole – it is quicker than using boolean operators with another shape layer or creating a setup with Track Mattes or the Set Matte Effect. Also the Mask gives me the opportunity to morph the mask shape into whatever shape I like and with the “Create Nulls from Path” script it is easy to control this mask shape, too.

    Conversely it happened quite often that when I had a footage layer selected and activated one of the Shape Tools (Q) it would draw a mask. Instead I wanted to draw a shape layer. Of course deselecting everything with CMD+SHIFT+A would do it. But I think it would be a little workflow enhancement if I just had to hold let’s say the ESC key (my hand is next to it all the time anyway and trying it hypothetically just hitting the ESC key felt so much more intuitive than hitting a keyboard short cut combination to get to that) and it would draw a new shape layer despite having a footage layer selected.

    In case the Pen Tool is active it would toggle to the currently selected Shape Tool and draw this new shape layer despite having a mask active (and not adding another mask shape to the footage layer).

    I don’t know how much effort this would make to implement such a toggle and if it is worth the precious development time as it can be done in the ways outlined but just not as efficiently.

    I hope this makes sense. Thanks, René

    This would be beneficial to every animator! Please consider implementing a “Property Panel” as it is part of PS, AI and InDesign as well! This would make it easier for users who deal with AE for the first time and make it easier to discover as well. Thanks!

    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…

    Dear John, I tried resetting the position in the Transform section of the Group which indeed helped. But it would be great if that was not necessary as I have to reposition my element after that step. Please find attached my project file with two converted shapes and their Nulls. Thank you for the quick reply! Amazing support. I hope that is fixable. In the meantime I will use the work around.
