autosave/save in background
Waiting for up to two minutes and having After Effects locked while saving is quite frustrating. Illustrator, Premiere and Photoshop all enable a user to save while working. I'd really appreciate this being added to AE.

Hey Victoria, what's the status on this painfully overdue request?
Daniel Estevez commented
I just lost 2 hours of work because the autosave wouldn't complete its task and I had to force quit. So frustrating...

This also causes scripts to crash, scripts that use palettes can try to run code if the user is performing an action right before this window pops up and it can kill the panel.

I wish AE could do autosaving in the background.

Or if hiding it scares the UI team too much, just please don't make it a modal window. When you're in the flow and you get interrupted it gets annoying. Or, even better, just make it appear in the info column like everything else AE is doing.

Thanks Victoria, but I'm not really interested in using teams projects.
Can't you guys just hide the annoying, productivity killing autosave window? Your users have been asking for years...
Final cut pro had it figured out 15 years ago, with background autosaving with no halt to production.

Thank you Victoria for reaching out. It's great to hear from the team. Also, I didn't know it's now accessible for all CC users. Good job. Will try!
Try Team Projects! All users have access now, and you can save all versions of your project and your work history in one, so there's no autosave window.
