I'm wondering if there's a guide anywhere that explains each of the entries in the After Effects preferences file. (this is easily found under General Preferences, with the reveal button at the bottom) I was changing my TRANSPARENCY_GRID_COLOR 1&2 to darker color values (the last 6 digits are the hex) since the default grid is too bright for me. While in there I found other preferences in the file quite intriguing... Things such as Pref_TREE_WIND_DATA, SOUND_CHUNK_DURATION and ANIMGRID_CELLS_HORIZ have piqued my curiosity.
I found the Adobe Help page on AE Preferences but it merely mentions the prefs file and recommends using the Prefs dialogue box instead. The file controls different feature adjustments than the dialogue however.
Is there a guide anywhere that explains the entries in this file? Or even better, is there a way to bring these advanced adjustments into the GUI? Thanks for any help!
-- Side note if you want to change the values in this file -- After revealing the prefs file you have to close AE *before* you open, change and save the prefs file.
- Also note that to restore the default preference settings, just press and hold Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Command+Option+Shift) while AE is starting.
