DropShadow and Directional Blur to reverse orientation to path
on Jul 4, 2018 at 10:16:47 am

Hi,

I have an animated solid with orient to path.
A copy of this solid has a Drop Shadow / Directional Blur effects, is there an expression that could read the orientation to path of the solid and reverse it? As if this solid is leaving a trail behind.

Any input will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Something like this will give you the angle of the X axis of your layer within the comp, but I'm not sure if helps do what you want:

v = toCompVec([1,0,0]);
radiansToDegrees(Math.atan2(v[1],v[0]))
