3D point follows 2D point regardless of z-position
on Sep 17, 2017 at 7:47:55 am

I thought this would be simple, but the more I think about it, the more complicated it seems. Everyone wants to link a 2D point to a 3D point, but I'm trying to do the opposite.

I have a 3D null and a 2D null.

The 3D null is animated in z-space.

I need the 3D null's world x,y-position to exactly match the layer position of a 2D null that is animated in x,y-space.

I'm sure there is some layer space transform combination I'm not thinking of.

Thank you for any help!

look this post or use this script

L = thisComp.layer("Light 1");
L.toComp([0,0,0]);

Thanks for your input, but this is not the answer to my question.

Your answer would work if my 3D null's z-position was zero, but it's not.
