Is it possible to save a preset in the preset manager that modifys the Opacity/Position/Rotation etc values of the layer in AE?

I can save the effects but not the keyframes on thoese values. :S

You have to select the properties you want saved in the preset. Only properties that are selected will be saved in the preset.

An easy way to view only properties that have been changed from their defaults is to press 'uu' with the layer selected. Then you can shift select the properties that come up and save your preset from there.

You can save any or all of the properties of the solid as an animation preset, but you can't save the solid itself as an animation preset.

You'll have to save that as a project file or project template. Template files can be made by changing the .aep postfix to .aet. Template files cannot be modified by "Save" but you can Import them into projects or use "Save As."
