Appending to Comp name when created
on Oct 23, 2011 at 6:22:42 pm

As the title says, what I want to do is have AE (cs4) append something to the comp name when created by dragging footage to the create new comp button.

Is there a way to set AE to do that?

e.g. I drag shot.mov to the Create New Comp button. It creates the comp and names it shotFX.

Any way to get AEcs4 to do that?

I don't think so, but there's probably a script that could rename comps in your project after they're created. I'd check aescripts.com.
