Ae: Please bring back the reverse path direction function.

Sometimes its easy to paste a bunge of paths and stroke 'm sequentially. In old versions of Ae we had Set First Vertex (still available) and Reverse Path Direction (gone - for some reason.

I know the power of Shape Layers / Trim Path, but it's not as fast to setup when many Paths are involved.

AE: please stop uncollapsing position tracks when a layer's 3D switch clicked.

C4d: better icon for Break Tangents

When dealing with Curves in the Timelin, I'm always puzzled by the icons.
Especially the icon for Break Tangents is unclear.

Here is my reworked version for that icon

-The arrow is not very important, so I gave it less contrast.
-The difference between the situation before and after is more clear.
-The new Icon is inuitively the thing to click for breaking tangents

Ai Simplify Path needs to be reworked

Maybe some smart settings can be add, like contrain angle options  etc.
