Attaching Null to puppet tool pin on shape layer
on Jul 26, 2013 at 3:08:48 am

Howdy,

I'm trying to attach a Puppet Tool pin to a null object using this expression here:

n=thisComp.layer('null');
nullpos=n.toComp(n.anchorPoint);
fromComp(nullpos);

Normally this works quite well with bitmap images, but it doesn't seem to like After Effects shapes all that much as they become massively offset. Does anyone know why? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try it this way:

n = thisComp.layer("null");
n.toComp(n.anchorPoint)

Awesome! The After Effects scripting king answered me! Does my little amateur heart some good! Thank you sir. It worked brilliantly!

the Duik tools have a great "bone" generator from their UI script. http://duduf.net/?page_id=151
