I have created a Comp Layer with 6 falling images. I want to copy that Comp (or all its layers and expressions) into its own new Comp and be able to change the footage to different images, but keep all the same expressions. I want to be able to have 2 comps; one with the orginal 6 images and one with new replacement images.
I don't know how to do this without it changing the first comp. Is there a way to copy layers into a new comp or the entire comp itself so that I can replace the footage and tweek the expressions, and also still maintain my current properities with the first comp?
I want my final result to be to use both the comps into a final sequence of falling images.
Duplicate the comp in the project pane. This will create a new, independent comp for you to modify.
Open the duplicate comp, select a layer, and option-drag the new footage into the timeline or comp viewer pane. This will replace the source footage, while keeping all properties of the original layer.
