A more robust way to call comps in expressions
As in expressions comp are called by their name once you duplicate or rename the called comp you break your expression. One solution to avoid that would be to enable something like the itemByID method that exists in scripts that allow us to call comps by a unique id that won't change whatever the user do, and please change the copy with relative link behavior so it uses this new method instead of calling the comp by its name.
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!
