toComp fromComp problem
on Jun 21, 2017 at 4:43:06 pm

I have this code on the position of a parented layer:

delay = 0.2;
p_delay = toComp (anchorPoint,time-delay)
value + fromComp(p_delay);

I was hoping to get the absolute position of that layer 0.2 seconds ago and convert this back to the actual layer space with fromComp.
I want to have the parented layer in place where it would have been without expression 0.2 seconds before;
But it doesn´t work. I guess its some self influence issue, because when toComp looks at the state 0.2 before, it involves the expression in its calculation.
Is there a workaround?
Thanks a lot for any help and please ask if my post wasn´t clear enough.
