Hello,

Is there a way to change the default name that AE generates when you precomp some layers.Defaults name is Pre-comp 1.

I like to change it to "Pre_"

Cheers

Thierry

You can change comp names in their composition settings. Very easy to do.

Thanks for the quick response. That I knew... but i don't feel like change the name to the way i like to name them.

The default is always Pre-comp 1. I like to change that to my custom default every time i precompose layers.

I think you should look in AE Preferences to change it. If it can be changed at all, it would be there. When you open AE Preferences, hold down the Shift key to open ALL the preferences so you can do a thorough search.
