how to link one layer to another, so they move together on the time line
on Jan 24, 2016 at 11:58:26 am

Hello folks,

I'm Using Templater Plug-in for AE (working on AE 2015 cc), I have footage files that change daily, and so their duration is different every day.
I have an transition layer that is always above my footage file layer.
How can I link that transition layer to the footage outpoint layer that changes daily so that they will always move together?

I found this expression-
But is effects only the inpoint of the transition and it doesn't effect the footage layer under it.
target=thisComp.layer("A"); // where 'A' is the footage layer to link the video to
time-target.inPoint

I also added a screen shot which explains the problem, Maybe it'll help
Thanks,
Adi.

You cant`t change a layer outpoint via expressions, you must do it by script. But if you only have to do it once per day, the best way is mouse+shift.

thank u
the layer out point change automatically when templater script is apply
and import a new footage white different duration.
the problem that i have a lot of changing footages that each one have transition and i need this transitions above will be link to each one of them

this expression:

target=thisComp.layer("transition"); // where 'transition' is the footage layer to link the video to time-target.outPoint

moving the "transition" layer to start right after the new footage white the new duration
but it need to start something like 5 second before the outpoint for the transition effect and this is my problem...
