Basically I have my character fully rigged and working fine. If I want that character in another scene then I duplicate the rig. For whatever reason when I do this sometimes the IK will not allow me to change the arm from Clockwise to Counterclockwise. Keep in mind I am using the Puppet tool for my limbs right now and changing the Puppet Pins to Bones.
My arm is set up Fingers > Hand > Forearm > Arm
Let me know if anyone has a solution to this because it's slightly annoying to need to rerig a character or only use one rig
I had situations where I had a composition with expressions linking layers and precomps, and duplicating the comp did not work as expected. I found "true comp duplicator" script to help in these cases: http://aescripts.com/true-comp-duplicator/ it has a feature to "update expressions" - I would try and see if that makes your duplicate behave as expected. here: http://imgur.com/a/QS3kF
