duplicate precomp, solids from master Comp
by Anthony Dupsta on Sep 5, 2014 at 10:27:05 pm
Just played with true comp duplicator. I like that script but may not be the answer for my specific import project workflow.
I am curious if anyone has some efficient workflow ideas.
This is a case that is only pertinent if you import a master project into a current working comp.
So you build out a master project that contains multiple effects, tracks, solids, adjustment layers. All those items that go into the "solids" folder.
While working on a separate project you go ahead and import that master FX project into your current shot. Grab what you need and delete it out.
I can use true comp dup, But I still have to hunt down all the solids and move those over also. Than i can delete that imported project.
I spend some time hunting down all the solids, nulls, adjustment layers. I never now if I got everything until I hit delete and see if anything disappears.
I have though about just bringing the entire solids folder over into the current solids folder, just piling everything in there, and not hunting anything down? I guess that is a good solution? Right? Any other ideas?
Again, only pertains to importing a project, grabbing preComps, than deleting that heavy project out to keep things clean.
