comment Layer dimensions in after effects
oh right, I was only thinking of solids as the pixel value of footage is usually known. I edited the answer to reflect that.

comment Layer dimensions in after effects
do you mean whether if its a 2D or 3D layer?
2d
comment How can you automatically trim a new layer in After Effects?
I'm not sure what you're asking. What to you mean "set to the current workspace"? A workspace is your window setup and has nothing to do with your project.

comment Can you measure the width of a character in an AE expression?
Expressions evaluate per frame so animation shouldn't be any issue. It will just slow your rendertime down a little as the sampleImage function is quite CPU heavy.

As you are asking for JavaScript, I'm assuming you are using ExtendScript and not the limited After Effects expressions you apply directly to layers?

comment Encoding 720p 29.97 fps video, options in Adobe Media Encoder are 23.976, 24 or 59.94 fps
In a way yes but not necessarily that much. You might want to upscale to 1080i not not 1080p. 1080i is much closer to 720p due to interlacing.

You might want to take a look at Lightworks to spare you the hassle with WMM in the future.

.avi is not proprietary its a very simple RIFF based container that can be used by anyone on any system. The part about WMV is true.

comment How to scale video showing the underlying layer/track in the cropped area
What AJ Henderson said. Alternatively you can scale "by hand" by double clicking the video in the preview window, then you get so called handles around the video which you can use to scale the video. The video will be scaled uniformly. You can then also drag the video around in the preview to position it if necessary.

comment Can we produce true 3D holograms yet?
Sounds like a scam tbh, they dont show a single real picture or video. Everything is rendered or stockfootage mixed with renderings.

The question is definitely on-topic here but you might get more answers on Stackoverflow.

comment Is it right time to buy 4K video camera?
There are actually quite a few TVs and PC screens that are far below 1000. But most of them are on the asian market right now, the EU and US market is slowly catching up.

comment Does version control have a part in the video production workflow?
I edited the answer a bit. With the old pack rat option it was indeed forever now its a year, and yes you can do what you just described but like I wrote in my answer don't put source (e.g. video/image/audio) files in there, only your project files. Unless you have a gigabit connection that would be very unpractical to keep versions of changing source or render files.

comment FFmpeg MP4 to FLV too slow
Because the presets work very well with the settings they provide in that case crf 23. There is barely a reason to modify that value. Compression will increase with a higher preset even though the crf value is the same for all presets. I'm assuming amateur knowledge here, if you want do more you will not have to ask basic questions as you will very quickly discover how these (basic) settings actually work and will make your own fine tuned settings tailored to your content.

comment How do I change the audio on a H.264 MP4 without re-rendering the file?
You could endup with 2 audio stream though depending on how the original audio is mapped in the container and how ffmpeg handles this situation, it either creates a second audio stream or replaces the first when using -map 1.

See amimciptimdim command for remuxing the .h264 into a new mp4. Instead of input.mp4 you provide the path to your myvideo.h264.
