Not sure if this is a dumb question or not, but can you export compositor nodes to another project? I'd rather not recreate them on different projects for similar effects.

Yes.

By creating a node group (⎈ CtrlG) you can append (⇧ ShiftF1) those node groups from other projects.

enter image description here

See my answer here for more detail.

    $\begingroup$ @douglasg14b Did you create a node group? You can only append nodes which are in a node group.. $\endgroup$

Also beware that node group copies, between active scenes within a project, are not unique. If you edit a value inside the node group of one scene then it will be charged in the other scenes. To fix it break open the local node group first.
