As a videographer, it is quick and easy to create proofs directly from within Adobe After Effects and send them out to a PageProof workflow. Then, when a to-do list has been returned, bring the comments back into After Effects with the corresponding pins positioned along your project timeline. Firstly make sure you have installed the PageProof Adobe add-on, then follow these simple instructions:

To bring comments back into After Effects

Step 1

Open your After Effects project. 

Step 2

Click inbox to see proofs that have been returned with a to-do list. Proofs that have been returned are indicated in green and will display a comments icon.
