Link media like Premiere Pro
The way AE link media is annoying, we have to look for the file manually while Premiere do it automatically.

This is crucial!
"Replace Footage" in AE is a harrowing experience, with zero protections or constraints to prevent disastrous errors. For example, if "DNG/JPG/ILLUSTRATOR file sequence" box is clicked, or not clicked, your project can get totally messed up, without you even knowing it- especially if its a large project. once saved, its permanent, and you have to to back to an autosave to fix it, and lose/ harmonize any other lost work that has been done in the meantime. a nightmare.
I agree with Franklin. Please look over the "Link Media" using the the Media Browser option to see how robust the interface is, and how quickly and accurately the tools provided do the job :)
I was slow to adopt the media browser interface in Premiere, but now that I use it every day, I really see how lacking AE's media relinking interface is... Don't really think its changed since I first started using AE back in the 1990s!
