Adding items to comp

Hi (again),
I’m having trouble adding a layer to the active comp. I’ve tried several different variations, and nothing seems to work. This is my latest attempt. I’m trying to add a previously made composition to the current comp and trying to do it by name, by item type, and by containing folder just won’t seem to work. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi @skimber,

You just confused the order of the variables, you tried to add the active composition into an item called “Displacement Map” instead of adding the “Displacement Map” Item into the active composition, so just reverse the order of the variables in the action line, select the active composition variable, then “add item”, then the item variable you want to add.

I also removed the last loop on the “items in the project”, it was unnecessary because you already have both the active composition and the “Displacement Map” Item as variables.
