Using After Effects CS6, I'd like to import one project (ProjA) into another project (ProjB). Let's say that ProjA has some text that I want to customize from ProjB. I'd like to be able to import ProjA into ProjB and then set some property "this is ProjB" on the imported project/comp and have the text in ProjA render that text dynamically. Is there a global properties/variables collection I can use to do this inside of a comp?
The way I see this working is I would add a variable called
myText to the comp in ProjA. Then I would add a text layer and set its
Source Text to an expression which would grab
myText from the comp's properties/variables:
This would allow me to import ProjA over and over into many videos and have unique text for each instance.
