after they demonstrated some nice GUI-improvements for the next version.
Some subjects we discussed in the cloakroom:
More flexible Scale and Alignment of Layer Styles: more than 150% scale
Contextual menu access to layer style from the Layer Styles entry (logical!)
FX Compositing Options: add blending mode next to the mask possibility
Gradient editor: Copy gradient knot with alt key
Gradient editor: Show 50% knots all the time
Alpha matte 3d layers with Layer Styles (currently the matte is ignored)
Relation of In/Out/Duration: Stretch combined with Trim(pan behind) behaves strange
e.g.: setting Outpoint by dragging has a different efeect than setting it numerically
No Autosave during preview please
Lock in time option: let us choose to lock all, or only In/Outpoints.
Make Locked layers read only, so we can still copy values and effects from locked layers
Set keyframe at current time in FX Panel by e.g. alt-clicking the stopwatch
Indicator for current comp to avoid accidentally editing the original comp in stead of the copy
Stabilize time remapped footage without PreComping (let AE do the work...)
Search for AE and After Effects to find all requests and remarks.
