    Duplicating comps containing expressions no longer update links (CC16)

    Gentleman Tibbs

      So, before I start animating I always create temperate characters so I can duplicate them per shot. It takes a bit of prep work, but it's well worth it.

      My rigs are able to change the thickness of limbs, change the colour of hair, skin etc. So if I need to mix up characters origins, it's no problem.


      The problem I'm having with the latest update, is that when I duplicate the folder, say "Man Shot 00" and re-name to "Man Shot 01" the expressions link back to "Man Shot 00" as oppose to updating to the new duplication.

      This means I can't simply edit the character using my controls, as they are referring to the original comp.

      I never had this problem with past version of AE.

      Has something changed in the software, or is there a box I need to tick somewhere?

      Thanks in advance for any help.
