parent layer to a mask vertice?
on Aug 16, 2011 at 12:32:29 pm

Hi everyone. I have been looking for hours and can't seem to fins a solution. I am basically trying to create an animated fire hose. I have used a shape layer (could use a blank layer with the stroke effect if that would be better?) and animated its path with a stroke to create a hose. It works well. I need to attach/parent a nozzle layer to the last vertices of the hose layer. Has anybody know of a way to get the positional data for just one of the vertices in a mask or shape layer,
Cheers,
Brad

Expressions don't have access to mask vertex data, so you'd have to use a script. I don't know if there's already a script out there that does exactly what you want. In any case, it won't be a live connection--you'll have to run the script any time you change the mask.

Thanks Dan, I was dreading that would be the case. Thanks for your help
