Hello! 

 

I was wondering if there is an easy way to save an after effects file with alll of its links so that I can succesfully share it with someone else. The idea is that they have everything they need in order to continue working on the after effects file. I have done a bit of googling and seen that there is something called "collect files" command that seems like it does the trick. Is this the best and easiest way to do this?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Yes, collect files is the best way to do it. Go to File > Dependencies > Collect files. In the dialog box, select the folder where you are going to collect files and click Collect... I reccomend you to do a File > Dependencies > Remove Unused Footage to unlink any file not used in the project before collecting the files.
