I'm trying to sync some local objects from 1 file (let's call it "Project 1") and auto update it what I've changed to another file "Project 2".

Let's say I have different projects, but some data that I'd like to have from Project 1 and share to Project 2, in this case if I change something at P1, I will have to do it manually at P2. Well, it's working but it's not exaclty efficient. 

 

Any ideas anyone? Thanks!

There is no such functionality and that's the long and short of it. There are scripts on AEscripts.com that can translate projects to intermediate XML formats or create stuff based on external inputs from text files, but that's pretty much as good as it gets and you still have to build your projects around those premises and tools to begin with or none of it might ever work. So there you have it. You have to adapt and restructure your workflow, not the other way around trying to fix it after the fact. If you can be more specific what stuff you need to be dynamic and easily updateable I'm sure peopel around here can give you some tips.
