    That's not what the original question asks for. They want to select a puppet or an audio take, hit CMD-C, switch to another scene, then hit CMD-V and have the selected timeline items pasted into the target scene.
    I have to say I'm completely baffled that this isn't possible now. Copy/paste operations on objects is one of the most fundamental UI concepts there is. Why can't I copy an audio take in one scene and paste it into another scene?
    At the moment if I have a sequence of takes to move to another scene, every ounce of intuition says select the audio take tracks (which CA lets you do) copy, switch to the desired target scene, and then paste. Instead, I have to right-click on each track, choose Reveal In Project, switch to the target scene, then drag that clip down into the timeline.

    One. At. A. Time.

    Heaven help you if you've done any splitting or trimming of those audio takes. Tough luck ******!

    Completely nuts.

    As a workaround for importing video to animate against, you can import a PNG or JPG sequence (File → Import Cycle…) and use the Cycle Layers option for Start = Synced to timeline. This is new in version 2.1 released in April 2019.

    I really don't understand the apparent reluctance to fix this issue - as others point out, it's been requested ad infinitum - and worse, a lot of the replies from Adobe staff seem to not quite understand the functionality that's being requested.
    Why can't CA just do what it does with a live camera feed, but with a video file instead? Literally what is the difference?

    Now I do! But yesterday and the other times (I refreshed the page several times on each occasion to make sure) it was still the old instruction about following the order in the context menu.Thanks.

    Also, when does that online help page update? It's still incorrect as of 9.30am GMT

    Thanks. Presumably you still start with the neutral viseme regardless?
