Denisse FraireHow can I unlink pictures from a composition?
by on Nov 1, 2016 at 1:05:17 am

I bought a video template where I can easily replace pictures but, two of the compositions are linked to the same picture and I can't figure out how to either unlink one or allow each composition to have its own picture. Right now, whatever picture I choose in one composition shows in the other and vise versa. Please help!!

You may have a difficult time doing this -- templates are usually complicated. If they were simple, why would you buy them? This might work, but there are no guarantees.

Find one of the nested comps with the same picture. Highlight it, right-click, and find it in the project. Once you find it, duplicate it and rename it. Now open the new comp and replace the picture in it. It's now like a new piece of footage. You can use the Replace Footage command to put it in place of one the two nested comps.
