Noob Question: I have huge AE project file and new to pull stuff out
on Sep 22, 2017 at 3:42:18 pm

I was given a single AE project with about 275 individual AE collected file projects in it. (See pics for better ref than my crappy words.)

I'm asking how I'd pull out a single project or an entire file in order to say upload them to Google Drive for someone else to work on.

Full story: Hired a company in India to do these shots, which are mostly fine, but some need some touch up work by peeps that are NOT the India company. How do I pull JUST those files/shots/projects out from this monster so the next person can work on just that one project? I can't find out how to unentangle the projects.

Thanks in advance, I'm sure this is super simple, but, I'm a goof and can't seem to figure it out.

This isn't tough to do, but it can be risky if you're not careful. So duplicate EVERYTHING before you do this! Don't paint yourself into a corner!

Identify the projects containing the stuff you want to modify. Highlight the comp(s) in those projects. Go File > Dependencies > Reduce Project. Then save your reduced project under a new name. Then go File > Dependencies > Collect Files. Find a spot on your machine to collect everything and collect it.

Then you can ship it off.
