Composition Issues with Lower Thirds AE Project Template
on Feb 17, 2016 at 10:52:21 pm

I downloaded a lower thirds AE project and am having issues trying to create different versions of the same graphic template within a composition. Every time I update the text on one version of the graphic, it updates all the other versions of that graphic with the same text. Any tips on the step I am missing in separating into unique versions of the same graphic?

Apparently, you make the changes in a nested comp. To make the changes stick in other comps, you have to duplicate the nested comp, make the changes in the duplicates, then use the replace footage command to put the changed nested comps into the other comps.
