Show Layer ID
on Nov 7, 2014 at 11:28:11 pm

I did an initial search for this, even though it seems really cursory, so apologies if I missed this. Maybe I'm not understanding the parameter. Basically, I'm just wanting to have a text layer which shows the layer ID of another layer. Or the name and layer ID of that other layer. I know this would be in the Source Text expression area for the text itself, but can't seem to find a way to display this info. Thanks!

>show the layer ID of another layer

Do you mean the layer index? Something like this maybe:

L = thisComp.layer("other layer");
L.index + ". " + L.name
