Have a AE project with around 30 comps as follows :

A1_PART2 etc

I need to duplicate the project and then go in and edit the prefixes to another letter such as :

B1_PART2 etc

Is there a way in AE to do a batch rename for "A1" to be replaced with "B1" without having to manually edit all the names every time?

Many thanks in advance...

See Project_Items_Renamer.jsx or Selected_Comps_Changer.jsx on Christopher Green's scripts site [link].

All of Chris's scripts are brilliant time savers, and if you find them useful, you should consider sending him a little compensation via his Donate button.
