Zoom with Scroll Wheel and Zoom with Trackpad work inconsistently.

In After Effects, "Zoom with Scroll Wheel" and "Zoom with Trackpad (pinch in/out gesture)" work inconsistently. When zooming with the scroll wheel, it functions relative to the center of the composition area, whereas when zooming with a trackpad (pinch in/out), it works relative to the pointer, which is inconsistent and annoying.

The same issue occurs in Photoshop, but it works vice versa for some reason.

In Illustrator, zooming works fine; it always zooms in and out relative to the pointer, regardless of the pointing device being used.

Please, pay attention to this issue and fix it. Make zooming in After Effects and Photoshop same good and consistent as in Illustrator when using different input devices.

In After Effects, when you hold down the Option key (on Mac), ALT (on Windows) while zooming in, it zooms in relative to the pointer. Let us know if it helps.

Feel free to reach out. I am moving this thread from Bugs to Discussions.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

@nishu_kush  But it's not consistent with the other Adobe apps, thus the learning curve is quite high. Don't you care about the consistency of your apps, Adobe?
