    Hi James - you are correct. This functionality hasn't changed - I opened AE 2019 and found the same issue. To me it's odd that the opacity start/end doesn't work when the repeater is above the stroke since other transformations (position, scale, rotation) work just fine. The reason I would want to put the stroke after the repeater is to make all the instances the exact same thickness. Otherwise, when you apply scaling to a repeater, it also scales the stroke thickness which is not always what I want. Here's the same settings on an ellipse that has a repeater scaling with end opacity set to 0% - the only difference is the stroke is above the repeater on one and is below the repeater on the other.

    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…

    Here's a novel idea. Stop adding new features right now. Instead devote 100% of your attention to improving the performance of AE. Yes,100% - all hands on board to actually bring give AE the multi-threading capability it so badly needs. What a shame that I have to base my hardware purchases around AE's shortcomings. Sure the new MacPro or iMac Pro is impressive - IF YOU'RE RUNNING ANYTHING OTHER THAN AFTER EFFECTS. Those machines are an absolute waste of money if you primarily use the machine for After Effects. This is what everyone wants - no, needs! Please.
