    This is also an issue on Windows 10. It's pretty frustrating, especially when working with specific brand colors that have been added to a Library- really defeats the purpose and creates more work when you realize you have to go back and fix every single instance of that color.

    Right now inside of After Effects, if you want to create a Precomp from an individual layer, the resulting Precomp will take on the size of the comp it was in. However, since the layer was already a layer with a specific size, there is almost no situation in which this result is desirable as default. Rather, it would make much more sense for the resulting precomp to take on the size of the layer it is pre-comping, similar in function to the "Trim to Transparent Pixels" command in Photoshop.

    So the desired functionality would be this: I have a 1920x1080 comp with, say, 3 layers in it. The layer I want to precomp has a bounding area of, say, 965x345. When I choose to precomp that layer, I want the resulting precomp to have a dimension of 965x345, rather than 1920x1080, as would the case currently.

    Currently, the only way to change the resulting size is to go in and manually resize the precomp, which is tedious.

    There is a third-party script called Auto-Crop which can perform this function, but such a feature seems like something that should at least be optional natively within After Effects.

    Thanks for your consideration and keep up the good wrok!
