    How to duplicate a placeholder in After Effects

    timk4194292

      I’ve got a question about wanting to duplicate more slideshow clips from a slideshow theme from themeforest.net.

       

      I've placed all 23 videos in 23 pre-set placeholders with no problem. Next, I'm trying to add more placeholder clips, so what I'm doing is selecting all layers, then copy and paste, then drag them further down the timeline. When I'm adding my 24th clip in to the next set of place holders, no problem. But when I go back to the very first placeholder clip, it changed to my 24th video as well. Anyway I can prevent my first placeholder from changing? Ideally I would like to make about 60 different clips total. I'm new to After Effects so if you could explain how to fix this as if you were explaining it to a 5th grader, I would be much appreciated. Thanks!
