Move protected areas inside mogrt
I love the way responsive time has been implemented inside after effects. It's efficient and practical. Especially since, in Premiere Pro, I cannot visualize the protected areas.
But one thing I'm missing in Ae would be the ability to drag the protected areas around so that I could sync a transition to the right keyframe/image/sound.
I built a small prototype in Xd, but the auto-animations don't work yet on the web. So you've got a video too :)

Still interested by this, AND the prototype now moves, because Xd was upgraded :)

Please don't pay attention to how many/few votes are on this one. You know this is needed, so just do it.
You should also expose this to Premiere, so users can move them there. It must be that you're moving the protected region based on percentage. If it's starting 25% of the way it, it's scaling to start at 25% of wherever you're at. Allow the user to drag that, AND have access to that percentage (or however you're actually positioning the section).
This way we could even send over that number to premiere via the Essential Graphics panel. Suddenly you need it in the middle of one, so you change the number to 50%, and Boom. I don't want to have to cut the thing a bunch of times just to get things landing where I want them. It starts to defeat the purpose of the tool pretty quickly.

So good a suggestion!
