So i am working on a presentation video in After Effects that utilizes 3 preset comps that i am editing to fit this project each comp is used about 3 times each at various points and transitioned to smoothly. how do i work it out where i can edit each template individually with out it effecting the last time i used the same template in the this sequence. i hope this makes sense as of right now if i use the template once then use another one then use the first template again a 2nd time any changes i make to it effect the 1st one as well. help
As Mylenium says, you need to duplicate the comps in the project window, but if those comps include other comps in them, you'll need to duplicate them too. The True Comp Duplicator script might be useful for this.
