So right now i have an animation project I'm working on.
Its basically a text message conversation animation, about 2 minutes long.
The timeline is essentially one precomp with a bunch of different precomps inside of that.
What i need to do is create two different versions of the same project as both versions have different scripts.
now i know how to duplicate a precomp so it isn't linked to the original so i can freely edit...
but with there being about 30 pre comps inside of that I'm wondering if there is a more efficient way to make it so that i edit my duplicated precomp without having to duplicate each individual precomp inside.
is there any easier solution to this?

Cool script in the past we just created a template and re-import that template.

You could also collect the project, duplicate it, give each one a different name (project 1 and project 2) then import both into a new project. This way if you edit one it will not change the other even thought they are duplicates.
