Updating groups across multiple sequences

I'm going through my sequences, which are "complete" for this year - or at least I thought they were.

In most of them, there are some huge discrepancies as to how groups are setup.  I'm paying attention (in particular) to what we call the "everything" group.  This is the one we do whole house type of movements (like a swipe across all the props).  I'm trying to remove the extra mouth submodels so that it doesn't look weird when it falls in the light. 

I've never had to do this, but once I get the model group cleaned up in one sequence, how do I copy it to the other sequences? (Is there a way?)

Thanks for any assistance you can send my way.
Note that I was going to ask up in the Zoom room, but right now there are over 14 people waiting.  (Glad to see they are popular, and most helpful.)

Players: FPP and xSchedule Controllers:  Renards - SS24/SS16; E1.31 - San Devices E682 - Falcon F16, F4, F48 - J1Sys - DIYLEDExpress E1.31 Bridges.  Much more!


I had a similar issue this year.  My group names were kind of all over the place, a lot of older sequences were missing groups, and the sort order was all over the place.  I just opened one of my sequences and sorted the "Master View" to exactly how I wanted it under display elements.  Placed all the groups together, the windows together, all the signs together, and made them easy to find.  I "cloned" the group as "sorted" and saved the sequence.  I then opened each sequence and clicked on "sorted" and selected "Make Master" and then saved it.  Did that for every sequence and now all of my sequences are sorted the same.

That was the master view settings and not sure that would apply to a separate "everything" group.  The "sorted" view showed up in every sequence I opened after saving it.  You might be able to delete the "everything" group and rename the "sorted" group to everything?  I use the "Master View" group for everything, so not sure this will be helpful in your situation.


Been doing something similar the last week as I found errors in my setup.  Fixed my view in display elements and am now going back and rerendering all the sequences.  The only other way I can think of to fix what you need is to put an off element on the mouth sections underneath the everything group and the render engine will keep them off.

Sorry about the delay in getting back to this thread.  Have been in the park working at the gate, if not working/helping setup a display for a friend.

Thanks for the suggestions.  They have re-started my brain.  Now to get to work updating all the sequences to match the new/changed groups.
