    Copy layer properties to another layer.


      Hi all,


      first of all I must say I'm completely new to After Effects. While trying to make a small animation, I encountered a little problem.


      I have a text layer with a couple of properties, keyframes for animation etc. applied to it. Now, I want this text to be replaced by an image. So I was wondering if there is a way to simply copy all the properties from this text layer to my image layer.


      When I search the internet, I could only find that holding alt and dragging the (in my case) image from the Project window to my text layer in the timeline could be a solution. However, I then receive the error: "After Effects error: layer does not have a source."


      Sorry for asking probably such a stupid problem, but I don't know what to do.


      Thanks in advance.
