Copy layers from one composition to another in After Effects

Recommended Posts

Do you know how I can copy layers from one composition to another in After Effects without it pasting it on the exact same timecode? I need the layers to fit into a short composition but when I paste it, its automatically pasted outside of the timeline.

If I understood what you asked. I would do the normal pasting method and press [ or ] to bring the content to the place I want.

Hi Nicolas,

 

I didn't explain very well. So let's do it again.

 

Opt 1:

you simply past using the Alt-key together with Crtl+V or Cmd+V. It would be Alt+Ctrl+V or Alt+Cmd+V

 

 Opt 2: At any time you can bring the later you are working up or down in the timeline by using the "brackets key" [ brings the first frame of the later at the position you are aiming, the ] brings the last frame.

 

I hope it's better explained now.

 

See you

  • Thanks 1
