Automatically Centre Dynamic Precomp with an Expression
on Jan 17, 2017 at 4:11:00 am

Hello.

I've done a lot of reading and tried a lot of expressions, but have yet to get this to work.

I have a pre comp of text which sits within my sequence. This pre comp is automatically filled in by an excel spreadsheet using CompsFromSpreadsheet.

This pre comp contains 6 different text layers that displays on a single line.

In the main sequence, regardless of this pre comps width, I'd like it to automatically centre on the vertical.

At the moment it's collapsed and I centre it by using the align tool. But there are hundreds of comps that are automatically created and I'm hoping to automate this.

Is this possible?

Thank you
Henry

I should note, the fundamental action I need to do is to...

Is there an expression version of the Align Panel's Horizontal Centre Alignment which will execute once the layer has been created?
