comment How to get 'outer' composition's current time?
nah, that doesn't work. The time property seems to belon to layers, not to comps. Weird.

comment Unable to hardcode subtitles in FFmpeg on Mac to mov
Can I suggest TextWrangler for editing these kinds of files on the Mac to avoid that kind of nastiness.

What happens if you change the expression on the Inner text layer to comp("outer").time?

comment Which file type to choose for editing, rendering and broadcasting
If you're preparing them for broadcast contact the TV stations and ask for their technical requirements. Otherwise you run the risk of them being rejected.

comment Quality difference between source and timeline render
Note that the timeline render isn't necessarily the final result. How you set the export settings determines the quality of the final output.

comment 3D images on a video using Premiere
Have you looked at the title tool in Premiere? It can do gradients and drop shadows etc. like your examples.

comment What do the colors in the timeline render bar in After Effects signfify
Yep yellow and red are Premiere. They signify footage that needs rendering that can and that can't be done in real time respectively.

comment What software is used in Hollywood for special effects and video editing
Your question is being downvoted because it is too broad. When you say you want to "make some visual special effects" what do you mean? There are so many visual special effects and so many different programs to produce them that there's no way anyone can answer with any sort of completeness. BTW "your feelings" about AE are way off, it is used all the time in film production.

comment Google Translate Voice/Speech used for Youtube-tutorials (TTS) - Legal/Copyright
What you're asking is a legal question. You need to ask it somewhere where there are people with legal knowledge, rather than video knowledge. try law.stackexchange.com

comment Working in a linearized Color Space in After Effects causes hard gradients
Out of interest: how does the added noise affect the compression if you're exporting to h.264 or the like? I can imagine it wouldn't help.

comment H.264 on analog camera
h.264is a digital video codec . Analogue video must be digitised to use h.264. It's a little unclear what you're asking.

comment After effects: Moving text along 3D path
You can copy a motion path on to a mask path property, so you can use the exact motion as your mask shape.

comment What does an external video recorder like a Ninja offer?
Keying is very dependant on the chroma subsampling, grading is more dependant on the bit depth. If you're recoding 4:2:0 your green channel is effectively ¼ the resolution of your picture so your keys are always going to be crappy.

How much benefit it is also depends on what the camera is giving it. If it's getting raw 10 or 12 bit video out of the camera then that's a great benefit, but with a lot of DSLRs it just gets the 8-bit video, albeit uncompressed. This is better than h264 compressed video recorded to the card in the camera, but it might be cheaper to buy something like a Blackmagic camera that records raw natively.
