Now, whether you're just trying to archive one composition out of your project or save that composition in a place where we could import it for future projects. We can achieve that effect by using the Dependencies function. So let's open the TripleA Output Comps folder and just select the 3D logo composition. Now go up under File, and choose Dependencies. In here, we want to choose Collect Files. In the collect files function, we want to make sure that we choose for selected comps. Now, just so we throw away any other files that we didn't use, go ahead and make sure we reduce the project.
Then let's go ahead and click Collect. Now, I'm just going to collect this onto the desktop, so we can then see exactly what happens. So I'll go ahead and click Save, and all the files were copied and then saved to the desktop. So let's go ahead and just double-click on this new composition that we created. And notice that I only have my one comp. This is perfect because I could now import that After Effects composition into a brand new project. Moving files between compositions, isn't that bad as long as you use your dependencies.
