Have Master Suite CS5, latest patches.
Have a dozen complex solids combined into a precomp in Project A. I would like to use the precomp in Project B. I need to modify the solids after they are imported into Project B.
Have looked at the various import/export menus and don’t see anything directly applicable.
Tried to use PP as an intermediary, but the solids did not transfer individually, so not much use for me.
All help appreciated.
You import project A into project B and then discard the pieces of A you don't need in B.
The changes you make to A's elements do not cascade back to A.
Thanks -- does work. Was hoping you could import just components that I wanted -- something like import a specific layer from a PSD. But I did solve the problem. Thanks again.
You can add that as a feature request. However, as your experience with hundreds of far more complicated AE projects grows, you'll see why that just won't work. But I wonder if tools like Automatic Duck might offer a similar concept for you?
