Clear used images?

Postby olyly94 on 10/12/2018, 6:58 pm

Is there a way to remove an image from a comp without going into the comp and manually deleting it within comp? I was hoping there was a trick to right-clicking the image and saying "remove from" and click on the comp you want it to be removed from. But I don't see any such option. I need to know how to do this without deleting the image from the project.

If you just want to delete it out of the the comp you could always delete it out of the project window, which will remove it from all the comps it's used in. If you don't want to remove it from all the comps, you'll probably have to delete it manually. You can right click on it and do "reveal in Comp" and get a list of all the places the assets is used.
