dynamic link folders and naming schemes
In certain circumstances projects require massive amounts of dynamically linked compositions. For example I am currently working on a serious of talking heads in front of a green screen for a social media campaign with 100+ short clips.
When sending the clips over for keying and animation I have to manually rename all of them to identify which of the named sequences they are from and manually sort them into bins inside of After Effects. This workflow could be much improved:
1) Add a comp naming dialog when selecting "Replace with After Effects Composition." At the very least options for renaming after the source sequence + an incremental number instead of an incrementing number for the whole poject would be needed. More options, especially for embedding other metadata, custom naming schemes and naming presets would be great.
2) Provide an option to create a new bin inside the target AE project for the new composition and all its assets. Optionally, automatically creating a folder structure named after the PP source sequence with subfolders for all dynamic link comps within would be great.
3) Alternatively it would at least be nice to be able to choose the AE project bin from within Premiere without having to switch apps as we currently have to do.

This is a really good point. Why is the name comp mandated to be so long? Why can't we choose?
