Quick Overview

Duplicates the selected layers and if any of the layers have expressions referencing any of the layers being duplicated it will update the expressions to point to the newly duplicated layers. Might make more sense if you watch the demo :-)

This script will duplicate the selected layers and if any of the layers have expressions referencing any of the layers being duplicated it will update the expressions to point to the newly duplicated layers.  Might make more sense if you watch the demo. :-)

Added a new option in v1.5 that allows you to change any thisComp relative calls in your expressions to be absolute to the current comp. This makes it easy to then copy and paste duplicated layers into another comp (or pre-comp) and have them reference the original comp as a master controller for the expressions.
