Hi ! The source text of a layer text "A" is linking to the source text of another layer text "B" which takes place in a different comp. Like that // comp("01-Rendez-vous").layer("Day 1").text.sourceText //
I named my project DayRDV.aep and for my production, I duplicate it like that :
DayRDV-Monday.aep, DayRDV-Tuesday.aep, etc... and change all layer text "B"
When I import all my projects in a new project (to do a batch render) I've got a great problem of conflict because this expression comp("01-Rendez-vous").layer("Day 1").text.sourceText is the same in every DayRDV-...aep. and the source text of the layer "A" can't find the right link.
Does anyone has a solution ?

It sounds like each comp that you reference will need to have a different name. I'd give each one a unique name in each project before importing them for render.
