Is there a way to swap out shape layers with a pre-comp? When I try to option-drag, I get an error, "layer does not have a source". I could pre-comp each shape layer and then swap them out.
Problem is, I have hundreds of shape layers that need to be substituted. Will I really need to pre-comp each shape layer??
A shape layer, like a text layer, isn't a piece of footage that shows up in the project window, so the opt-drag trick doesn't work.
What Dave said. And to complicate matters, you will probably see all sorts of alignemnt discrepancies due to how shape layers calculate their origin form the comp center as opposed to the top left corner like otehr layers.
