Relink an element in the composite shot

Hi all,

I would like to relink a png file in a composite shot such that the picture for that specific element changes and all others are not affected by it. So changing the resource picture does not work as all other elements would also change. Is there a way how to do this?

    No, there isn't. The only way to do this is to set manually new asset on the timeline.

    @Gelqone is basically correct. Especially if you're working with something you've set up as a Published Template.

    The only other option is to revamp the relevant Comp where the PNG layer is converted to a "Media Holder" Composite Shot with any effects or animations done on the Media Holder layer in the main Comp. Then you can swap out the PNG in the Media Holder and it will keep any effects and animations applied to the embedded layer, which will save some work.
