Comp generated each time footage dragged to timeline
on Dec 9, 2013 at 4:16:38 pm

This is weird, but I just noticed that every time I drag footage to the timeline (not the little "create a new comp" icon, but simply the time line, a new comp is generated. This occurs with both AE 6 and AE CC both of which are up to date.

This is an issue only on my iMac running OS X 10.9 (Maverick); it does not occur on the iMac running OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion). So first guess is that it is OS-specific.

Anyone else experiencing this issue? Is this what is now supposed to happen?

Many thanks from here my cozy studio in cold, snowy/rainy Bethesda.

Could you record a screen capture of this happening, so that I can make sure that I understand exactly what you're doing?

Hi Todd

Thanks for the comeback. While I figure out a screen capture and how to upload it to the forum, I'll try to talk you thru it.

1) I've imported a single PSD file into the project panel (via standard double click & open)

2) I click and drag this footage from the project panel to the timeline panel

3) AE instantly generates a comp in the project panel with the exactly same name as the footage (without the PSD suffix of course)
