Can't Edit Duplicate Comp Without Messing Up Original
on Mar 25, 2011 at 11:01:30 pm

Hi All,

I've got an AE problem. I pre-comped some footage inside of an HD video composition, creating two tracks in my timeline.

Seemed straightforward enough. But when I went to delete some items from my duplicated pre-comp copy, it deleted them in my original as well! I want to create a copy of the comp that can stand on its own without being linked somehow to the original that it was duplicated from.

How can I do that?

Thanks so much!
~Elizabeth

I think you can get a script at aescripts.com to create a new project from a comp. If you did that then you would pull the new project into your current project as a new independent item.

hope this helps
