Cleaning up duplicate clips when importing projects
on Oct 31, 2012 at 4:17:17 pm

Hi all:

Let's say I'm working on an AE project and I want to import another one (that is, another .AEP file) into it. Let's also say that both projects use the same clips. In those cases, instead of recognizing the duplicate clips, AE will create two instances of the same clip, and if you try to delete one of them, it will delete those layers from the corresponding comps. The only solution is to go comp by comp by hand and replace each layer with the proper clip instance (the one you don't want to delete).

Is there any script or utility that can automate this kind of work? I had a look at aescripts.com, but didn't find anything similar.

Go to File>Consolidate all Footage.

This will remove the clip which has been used is the project you have imported and use the clip from your current project.
