Apply "Master" comp to group of comps?
on Aug 7, 2017 at 3:26:15 am

Is there a way to apply a "master" comp to selected comps? (like how InDesign has master pages)

For example, let's say I have 10 comps, each containing a design of a two-page spread. How would I add the title of the book to the top of each comp (that I can make edits to later), without going inside each comp and adding a pre comp?

The thing I'm really interested in this master - child relationship. Is structuring projects this way possible in After Effects?

Thanks,
Tom

The InDesign concept of master layouts doesn't exist in Ae per se, but you could replicate master/child functionality from one master comp to many child comps with the Copy with Property Links feature:

After Effects and Premiere Pro have an integration feature called Live Text Templates that would allow you to set up a template in Ae and produce the variations in Premiere:
