I dont know if this is possible but basically i have created a rig in an animate file with all the layers parented and call the symbols created with differnt frame pickers for when the charcter turns or for when he talks and i was wondering if it would be possible to import this rig into another animate project keeping everything the way it is
If you select the bunch of layers and right-click you can choose Copy Layers and then paste those same layers (Paste Layes) in your new document. Layer Parenting will be preserved. Layer Parenting is a layer property and not a frame property.
A better approach would be to create a Graphic Symbol container and put all the character layers inside. Then establish the parent-child relationships and copy/paste this outer container to your new document.
Also, I would suggest that you look into Smart Magnet Rigs as a more viable alternative.
