Is there a way for AE to keep a "placeholder" layer in a comp after deleting an asset from the project? I'm trying to make a template project with a dozen video clips. I want to be able to set up the comp, delete the assets from the project, then save the project with the "color bars" layer placeholders.
But when I delete the asset from within the project, it removes its reference from the comps that I set up.
