start second shape at the end of first shape
on Mar 5, 2018 at 8:17:30 pm


I'm creating lower third in AE. I have two shapes in line one after another. I would like that second shape starts exactly at the end of the first shape. First shape is auto resizable because of text lenght. How can I do this? Is there an expression for this?

Thanks for the help.


PS: I found this expression here that I'm using it for auto resize first shape:

Rectangle 1 position:
content("Rectangle 1").content("Rectangle Path 1").size/2

Rectangle 1 size:
s =thisComp.layer("TEXT");
x = s.sourceRectAtTime(time-s.inPoint,true).width;
y = s.sourceRectAtTime(time-s.inPoint,true).height;
