so I frequently bring older versions of projects into my current AE project, particularly when revising spots, what I want to understand clearly is the behaviour of AE projects once they are imported into a larger project.
If I make edits to the compositions of the nested project, are those changes saved back to the nested project's orginal file? If I alter the original nested projects file, how much will it change instances of it nested in other projects?
thoughtful and considered answers are appreciated, I'm not a newb.
If there is a help page somewhere that explains all this behavior in detail then please post a link... tricky to find this answer at short notice and I'm on the clock...
No. Projects don't interact in any way. Not forward, not backward. Once a project has been imorted it becomes part of the native project of the host structure and loses all conenctions to the original file.
and does somebody know if it would be possible in a way to get this interaction possible ?
for exemple , I make a template for colorgrading in a project that I would use in several ones.
If I want to adapt this colorgrading project, would I have to replace it in every other projects or there is a way to automatize it ?
