Hi all-

I'm working on a long after effects project that has to be broken into smaller 20 second chunks for simplicities sake.

However, there are a lot of masks, effects, and things like that which I need to transfer from one project to another. How can I save

-Adjustment layers (which contain scripts I am using)
-Effects
-Masks and transform settings

from one project to another?

Thanks
Chapman

I'd import the big project into a new project, then I'd delete the stuff I didn't need....

...and I'd be VERY careful doing so. Then save the new project.

Yeah that's exactly how I do and I give to new sequence project a name with a digit always beginning by 0 so that explorer present me in the right increasing order
01 02 03 ....098 .In the name of the project to be saved I include the date written
like this 20150812 (yymmdd) again it enables a easy check in explorer.

Dave as a precaution before beginning the deletes first save the new project as a new one as it will automatically transfer you to the new one keeping the father project untouched. It so easy by mistake to forget to use save as instead of save in the process of the transfer.

You're very correct! Save the project BEFORE you begin to delete things! I overlooked that. Sorry!

Gosh, I've just reviewed my message, I was really in a terrible mood when I wrote to make so many spelling and wording mistakes ! Shame on me. Hope anyway the ideas were understandable!
