I know that there have been a few changes to the Comp control and selection from the Control Surface in AE3.

I can't seem to get it to work.

I used to select the ME in the delegation group (ME 3in my case) and then the various LiveSet buttons would trigger the appropriate Comp with the animation between them.

Now, I'm at a loss. The only way I can seem to get a Comp to play out is from the UI with the ME selected, by going into the Comp panel. This is pretty inconvenient and takes a bit too long and isn't very friendly.

So, first, my question, is there a way to map back to the old CS layout and operation?

If not, can someone walk me through how it's supposed to work?
