    Why does pasting multiple layers into a different comp ruin the order?

    dissidently Level 2

      I have 6 layers in a comp, and I'm taking them across, via copy/paste, to another comp.  Each second layer is an Alpha channel for the one below it.  However when they're pasted into the next comp they ALWAYS are reversed, or randomly resorted, ruining everything about their blends and alpha relationships with one another.


      Why does After Effects do this? Is there a way to prevent it from happening?


      This doesn't just happen in this instance, I've noticed it nearly always happening when pasting multiple layers. 


      Is there ANY conceivable benefit to this happening, ever?
