    Duplicated nested compositions

    byAaron

      Hi, is there a way to duplicate a whole hierarchy of nested compositions in an AE cc project and then work on this duplicate while the original remains unaltered? I tried al possible ways I could think of but every time I duplicated the end-of-the-line composition in the hierarchy I just got a copy of this end-of-the-line comp, but NOT of the subsequent comps also. So this final duplicate comp and the original were linked to the same original subsequent compositions down the line. In other words I created only a copy that will NOT stay unaltered while working on the subsequent comps.  I tried also to make duplicates of the subsequent comps, but in no way could I associate them with the duplicate end-of-line comp. They just stayed independent, not being connected to anything upwards, but still keeping the connection down the line. Thanks a lot for any help.
