How to copy correctly from a different project ?
I've come to hate lying software
So how do I copy a layer from a comp of another project correctly into another project. I'd say that the clipboard could actually even know the media and paste it into the new project.
But I'm not even asking that and did it for myself. So I just wanted to copy the whole layer (the muzzle flash) mainly for its transformation animation from one project to this one. So after encountering the first complaint of HF no finding the media I added it myself. Again, HF tells me just that it cannot find the media now.
Hm ... why not then just paste the layer and its effects and transformations and animations and but in a blank warning "media not found" letting me replace it ... or better: reconnect it because the file is exactly the same. Not just a name match but also the same absolute file path.
Now the 5 million doll ... pound sterling question goes like this: How do I such a copy operation successfully in HF?
