Maybe I just have brain-fog this morning, but it seems to me that I used to be able to print from AE. I know I have a binder somewhere with flowcharts, effects windows, stuff like that from my early days with AE.

Today I was trying to print a flowchart from CS4 and I can't even find a grayed-out "Print" command in any of the menus. Am I remembering things wrong or has Adobe decided to delete a useful command?

Wow, I didn't know AE was ever capable of that.
Are you sure you weren't thinking about screen grabs, window grabs and such?

Consider exporting the frames as a JPEG or PNG sequence and then import these into Acrobat, Photoshop or some other application...

I don't know of there ever being a Print command in After Effects.

This one bugged me enough to go dig up the manuals that came with AE4 and AE5. (...printed manuals.... remember them?)

Anyway, I could find no mention of any print function.



And thanks guys for the reminders about doing screen captures and printing from another app.

Ah, the manuals! Enclosed within their pages were illustrations of all the various windows, buttons and toggles with descriptions of they did. Not to mention the nifty card with all the keyboard shortcuts!

I understand an online manual is easier to keep updated, but sometimes you just want to sit in an easy chair, munch on an apple or something, and look things over just see what you missed.

I miss being able to do that.
