Referencing to a video layer from another comp
on Oct 11, 2018 at 1:28:54 pm


I have a broadcast scrypt (CompsFromSpreadsheet Version 5.1) that I'm trying to make to work for my broadcast template. Here's my problem:

I have a main input comp "TemplateA" in which I have text layers and solids which are replaced by "REAL" names and videos when I run the scrypt from my data spreadsheet.
The source text from the text layers in "TemplateA" I can easily link (whip) to text layers in other comps in which I use them. But how to do that with videos?

I need to reference this solids in "TemplateA" to be shown in my other comps, so when I change them in "TemplateA" by running the script they also change in my other comps. How to achieve that?

I have attached a screenshot (input comp is "TemplateA", 3rd layer "#graphic" will be replaced with video) - how to set up comp "video 1" on the right side of the screen to import layer 3 from "TemplateA" comp?
