Hi MMK/FunnyCuzinEnt,

You can:

  1. Create a character in one file and save it.
  2. Make a copy of the character created and animate it. Save to another file.
  3. Use the copies in any place as many times you make another file copy of the original, animated or not.

If you always keep a copy of the original, you always can reuse its copies in other place without destroy the original.

Alternatively you can open the original at the same time than the document where it should be used and copy the layers between documents. That would efrfectively create a copy inside the new composition and the composition wonโ€™t depend on an external file.
