Moving Layers by n Pixels

Hey guys, is it possible to move layers by a precise number of pixels? I'm working on a DPX movie in 1:85, so I've been asked to move all my Titles by 220px to the right. I will probably have to redo some impagination but meanwhile I had this doubt.

im not shure if i got this right, but...
just do the math -->

220 / 1,85 = 118.91891.... lets say 119px in a aspeckRatio of 1,85

so you nee to move the titles by 119px and your fine.
did this helped?


(take a step back, to see the bigger picture)

...or you can just work in square pixels, then the math gets a lot simpler.

To move a layer by a specified number of pixels you can get After Effects to calculate the Math for you. Simply click on the property value to make it editable, place the insertion point after the current value and type +220. After Effects will add this to the current value. You can use any of the math symbols to make calculations like this; +(Plus) - (Minus) / (divide) and * (multiply)

Hope this helps.
