easy way to move a comp frm within a project to its own project

Someone sent me a template and it has a few comps sharing the same elements. I want to be able to brake these comps off into separate projects.....1 comp per project an the comp still has all the links and effects.

Is there an easy way to do this without having to rebuild a project?

Perhaps just duplicate the project file three times, rename each one and delete the parts you don't want from each one ... it might be a good idea to also keep the original unaltered project file that you purchased.

Yup, do like Dave says. That's the best way. But bear in mind that if you move or delete that footage, AE will show color bars, indicating missing footage... and it's a pain to go find it again.

Look into the Collect Files and Reduce Project feature set.
