Is there a way to copy and paste a layer to all comps at once in After Effects?

I have a color correction layer which I want to copy and paste into almost 2000 sub-comps inside of an After Effects project. Is this possible with the help of some tool, trick or script?

Thanks a million,
Waref

Sadly, no.

2000 nested comps that need color correction? From your short description, this sounds like a horrible workflow. What are you trying to do? What will the viewer see when this project is complete?

I don't know if I could have done it any better. The shooting was for ca 150 sport exercises which they should be delivered in 10 minimum / 32 maximum short snippets per exercise with specific naming structure per snippet.

I see you made no mention of text, graphics, effects, animation or compositing.... which is what After Effects does.

Based on your reply, It seems to me you would be better off working in a video editing application instead of AE.

You can apply LUTs with Adobe Media Encoder.

If you can create a LUT using your color correction layer with Red Giant's LUT Buddy, you could apply the color correction as part of a large batch encode from AME, not Ae.
