Auto-startup: If enabled, the job will be started automatically as soon as the last After Effects document of the current session exits or when you select a new document. The auto-startup feature can reactivate itself after 60 minutes so that the job can be saved in the current session. You can also enable the auto-startup feature in the Job Settings dialog by selecting the Open In session option and specifying the number of minutes to wait before firing the job. Note that the auto-startup feature is only valid for jobs that are launched in the 4.5.x After Effects versions unless you also enable the auto-startup service in the session settings.
Exit Without Save: If enabled, the job will be automatically exited without saving edits from the current session. This can be useful for jobs that take a long time to render, and you want to stop and start the project again later. If this option is disabled, it can reactivate itself automatically after 60 minutes so that the job can be saved in the current session.
The 3D channel, a workflow within stills and video editing, is still popular, but plugins like the DaVinci Resolve and Cinelerra titles help to open those up very nicely for the editor. Terminator is an outstanding Nuke plug-in for Premiere Pro and After Effects that now also supports and cheats on the latest version of After Effects. Many tools overall have been updated for new naming conventions and the ability to support the NUKE Studio Tool components.
There are a number of important system variables available through the preferences dialog that are configurable on the project level.
