comment Will Compression/Format of Audio Change when Uploaded to YouTube?
Maybe relevant though mostly about video compression: video.stackexchange.com/questions/5318/… in short, yes it will ALWAYS change the audio compression/format.

comment Is it possible to embed VTT subtitles & chapters in webm video?
"WebM intends to follow that guidance", which hinted that they will add this feature at some point which they apparently did now.

comment How was this magic smoke animation done?
I'd say particular. Form is more for animating "surfaces", while in this case you can probably achieve similar results with form, you will have more freedom with Particular.

comment Does version control have a part in the video production workflow?
Well thats the ideal case, if your project ends up with a larger project file you just can't upload revisions as often depending on your connection. A cloud storage software scales perfectly, git will eventually run into troubles. Commit messages are definitely a plus for git though.

After Effects has a built-in particle system. While its not exactly the most advanced one, you can certainly generate smoke.

Do you really need to automate this or is it a one time thing?

comment How long should the maximum length of an exr sequence be?
Yes, you might want to try to use a newer version of fnord'S OpenEXR plugin: fnordware.com/OpenEXR Its free and included in the trial download for ProEXR for PS.

comment How long should the maximum length of an exr sequence be?
That is a strange behavior. It really does sound like a bug. I've used image sequences that exceeded more than 10k frames.

comment Video with person 'writing on glass' effect
Welcome to Video Production SE! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

I would also suggest to do the alpha fade in post.

comment Is there a way to directly save DNG Sequences to 16bit exr Sequences in Photoshop or After Effects?
Photoshop also has OpenEXR but only when your image is 32bit. Otherwise it doesn't show up as a save option for whatever reason. Maybe try the Photoshop Trial of ProExr, should allow you to save as 16bit aswell.

comment 3D composition shows up as 2D in main project view?
Exactly, you just need to link the cameras. Everything else is for more advanced effects.

comment Exporting to .mov from premiere cc? queuing as .mxf?
Maybe you dont have QuickTime installed? Could explain why it chooses a different format as a sort of fallback.

comment How to mask footage video with text?
Oh ok, not thats not possible with native AE effects. Thats actually something your would do in a 3D suite like Cinema 4D or 3Ds Max. After Effects now comes with a "lite" version of C4D, it integrates very nicely into AE, you might want to check that out. The only thing you could do in terms of extruded text inside AE would be to use the RayTraced renderer or Element 3D from VC, make extruded text and use that as a layer mask but that would just be like a stencil shadow on the footage, just like a 2D text mask but with some 3D perspective inside the mask.

comment Exporting to .mov from premiere cc? queuing as .mxf?
Sounds like a bug. Usually you export directly to AME and set your format there, so the workflow you use is not very common and it might have gone undetected in bug testing. I would report it to Adobe. adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform&loc=en

comment Warp stabilizer in Premiere Pro cuts off most of the image
Then you might want to try changing the playback engine as AJ Henderson suggested. Could be an error from the GPU engine.

comment What tools do you use for command line editing?
Well no one uses ffmpeg for NLE work. You use it for encoding and automating things. For transcoding its actually very easy to use. The main reason why its popular though is that its pretty much the only widely known tool for these tasks. MELT isn't even close to that reputation. Not that this would make MELT bad, its just not that well known yet.

comment How to Sync a Layer's Position, to a Layer in Another (Time Remapped) Comp
Correct. It wont remove any of your keyframes but take them and loop them forever. All you need to do is increase the length of the layer as needed and it will loop the animation as long as you layer is long.
