Quick question about importing projects into projects
on Dec 28, 2016 at 3:48:02 pm

This is a quick question that I am somewhat sure about through experimenting but would like clarification on because it has the potential to do a lot of damage if I am wrong.

When I import an AAE project (I will call this PROJ 1) into a different AAE project (PROJ 2) it is not referencing PROJ 1 so much as it is creating a temporary copy of it . So any changes I to the PROJ 1 folder in the PROJ 2 Project file will have no effect on the PROJ 1 project file itself correct? Additionally, if I delete the PROJ 1 AAE file after I have imported it into PROJ 2 will it the PROJ 1 subfolder dissappear?

The imported project file is completely independent from the original. You can modify the import without affecting the original. You can modify & delete the original without affecting the import.
