Please make scroll to zoom (especially in the Comp window) dependent on a modifier key.
If holding a modifier key to zoom in the Comp window were an option, using the Apple Magic Mouse in After Effects would not be such a maddening experience. Also, you could use the same modifier key+mouse scrolling to zoom in and out in the Timeline window. Maybe holding Z while scrolling? Since Z switches to the zoom tool, that would make more sense than having it just default to zooming in and out of the comp window. I want to keep the scrolling feature of the mouse for menus, so disabling scrolling in the mouse preferences is not an option.

YES PLEASE! This is a constant problem when you're using After Effects on a Mac
Yes pelase, PLEASE, FOR GOD'S SAKE, take notice of this request...
The whole UI needs an overhaul ... I strongly support this request and would even ask for smooth native Mac Trackpad Zoom (pinching two fingers), although Better Touch Tool can handle that (though not smooth)
