When copy/pasting layers from one project to another, the layers get unusable saying "original source deleted".
Why is this? the source is not deleted and works perfectly fine in the original project.
Im using the latest AEcc.

It's because the layer is linking to an asset in a different project. Doesn't matter that the source file is in the same spot on your hard drive, AE needs layer/source to be in the same project.
