Getting source text from layer control in a different composition
on Jun 27, 2015 at 6:35:01 pm

I have this problem where i want to modify the source text of a text layer within a composition with a layer control in a different composition on a different layer. I cant figure out why its not working, i always get an error.

The expression i'm having a problem with

comp("Comp 1").layer("Properties Control").effect("Layer Control")("Layer").text.sourceText

But if i place the layer control on the same text layer and pickwhip link to the layer control, it works, but it only works if the layer control is on the same layer.

effect("Layer Control")("Layer").text.sourceText
