Moving a comp out of a folder to the root level
on Jul 15, 2019 at 11:40:16 am

I have been trying to create a script which goes through the folders in the project and look for the main or a particular composition and move it out to the folder to the root level. I went through the docs and online forums, but it only shows how to move into a folder but not the other way around.

Thanks for your help.

you search for that folder and drag it to the top of the project window...that grey area above the search puts things back into the base...I do this manually but i suppose a script could do it

// move myItem object into the project's root folder
myItem.parentFolder = app.project.rootFolder;

Thanks a lot, Walter. That did the trick.
