Access customized comp name with expression
on Mar 21, 2017 at 9:23:40 am

Hi,
I can rename a comp which is lying in another comp with right click -> rename.
Is it possible to access that custom name with an expression?

Because when I do

thisComp.name

I always get the name it had before.

Thanks!

What you describe is not renaming the comp, it's renaming a layer. Layer names are also accessible by expressions.

Makes sense.
So I´d need to access the parent comp and read the layer name of the current comp.
But that´s not possible in AE, is it?
