1) Dowloaded a project from Video Copilot.
2) Imported The Project into the project I'm working on(VCProject into a lyric video)
3)Duplicated The Project IN THE PROJECT BIN(This is still inside a folder, maybe this is my problem)
4) I still get changes across ALL of the duplicated comps. I copied the precomps and replaced them as well, still gave me the same thing. Ctrl + D'ed and manually copied them.
I know this has been discussed, but I need a clear cut reason as to why this is happening. I've done duplications before so I know I'm not insane in saying I'm doing something wrong, but what is it?
I can upload a video if necessary, I don't think anyone's done that.
Every pre-comp or nested comp that is inside a duplicated comp needs to also be duplicates. AE builds everything in a composition from a reference to source file whether it is footage, a nested comp, or a solid. If the reference, the nested comp, the footage, or even the solid is not changed things don't change in the duplicated comp.
Did you follow that?
