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.

Sure but that is a very sluggish workflow compared to a modern NLE like Premiere where you can see changes even while playing back your footage.

No no you don't add time remap to anything. You just add it to every layer that has keyframes and they layer will loop these keyframes forever with that expression. You use it instead of time remap and use it on the layers in your comp instead of the comp itself.

I edited my answer, I tried that method on your project and the face wobbles along just fine after the 2 second mark.

I looked into you comp. Am I correct assuming that you only time remap in order to loop your animation?

Then just time remap the comp2 in the same manner?

So, to understand you correctly. You have 2 comps in a main comp and comp 1 has animated assets inside itself and you then went ahead and time remapped comp 1 inside the main comp and now need to sync the motion of comp 1 to comp 2? (not an asset inside comp 2?) It might be helpful if you could upload a simple AE file that shows the issue.

comment Why don't phones correct vertical filming?
The issue is that you can turn your phone. It's a bit hard to turn a monitor or TV.

comment mp4 file will not play video, only audio on quicktime, fine on VLC
Btw. if you want to analyze video files in the future I recommend using the tool "MediaInfo" it gives you a lot more usefull and human readable information.

Apple software has always been very picky about h264 files. There are a ton of parameters that can cause this. I mean why don't you just re-export your project as an intermediate and encode to h264 with handbrake? Even if it takes some time, its not worth the hassle to debug your broken file.

In that case transcode with Handbrake with the normal preset selected.

comment What new piece of hardware to get to increase video rendering performance?
If you want to increase the rendering performance during export a GPU might not bring that much of a performance boost, while GPU enabled effects are still rendering on the GPU. The encoding to the desired codec (like h264 or MJPEG) depends largely on the CPU and takes quite some time in the whole process. So far only h264 can be rendered on the GPU in Permiere but it still uses a lot of CPU and the quality can even be worse due to implementation limitations of codec on the GPU.

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.

do you mean whether if its a 2D or 3D layer?

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.

Oh right, I assumed that to be standard today but yes, thats very important

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.

comment Can you measure the width of a character in an AE expression?
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?
