    Hello everybody,

    I sometimes want to precompose expressions. Is there a quick solution which changes all ‘thisComp’ references into ‘comp(“compName”)’? A script maybe that works like ‘find and replace text’ but throughout all expressions in one composition?



    temp = thisComp.layer("CONTROL").effect("radius")(1);

    temp = comp("Wheel").layer("CONTROL").effect("radius")(1);
