Creating/duplicating compositions independently
on Sep 6, 2016 at 6:31:53 pm

Hello,

Im trying to figure out what the best/easiest way is to duplicate my comps/precomps to be independent comps.
To explain my situation, basically im creating hockey player cards. Not like the trading cards, but when you go to a hockey game and a player scores, its a short 10 second animation where the logo comes up with footage of the player and their name. I have a base file or composition finalized to work off of...but i need to duplicate that about 30-40 times for this whole roster of players so that i can do 2 for each player.

The problem im running into is that the composition that im trying to duplicate has a bunch of precomps inside (comps inside of comps inside of comps, etc...) so whenever i try to edit it it ends up messing with the base file.

I need a quick/easy way to duplicate the composition including everything inside so that every element is independent.

Thanks in advance for any help!

There's a script that does what you want. I forget its name. Someone here will know.

you can re-import your project and you will have independent comps. and you can use this script - True Comp Duplicator script here: http://aescripts.com/true-comp-duplicator/

That's the one I was talking about: it duplicates the comps AND any nested comps.

[Roei Tzoref] "you can re-import your project and you will have independent comps. "
