I've been working in CS5 for a while now, but every time I've rendered so far I've been in a hurry and wasn't able to further look into something I think I've noticed has changed and, now that I have time and thought about it again, I'm not at a CS5 machine to check ... did the option to embed the project file inside of a MOV when rendering go away making the only option to embed a link to the project file (which isn't very helpful if you regularly shuffle projects among several machines)? Thanks.

Yes, that went away in After Effects CS5. We couldn't find many people who actually used it, and re-implementing seldom-used features in the 64-bit port was something that we looked at on a case-by-case basis... especially QuickTime features, since we now need to write our own QuickTime handling code for a lot of things (because there is no 64-bit QuickTime).

If it's important to you, please submit a feature request, and it can get prioritized accordingly.

Thanks Todd. I'll submit a feature request ... that feature was very useful and I could never figure out why all AE users don't find invaluable the ability to have an exact copy of the full render-state project file permanently saved inside of all renders regardless of computer changes, hard drive failures, file corruptions, dumb co-worker deletes, etc., etc., etc. By that method only, I literally have project files from a decade ago and, although I rarely need to go that far back, pulling one from a few years ago has come in very handy many times. Anyway, thanks for verifying.

BTW, ever since that QTX crap and bundling QT with iTunes I've been praying that Apple will sell QuickTime to a company that gives a shiznit about the pro market ... not gonna happen, but a boy can dream. ;~) In fact, can asking Adobe to buy QT from Apple be considered a feature request? lol
