loading assets with different height into a tall composition via spreadsheet

I have a spreadsheet with lots of entry, each entry referring to a specific asset (ast1,ast3,ast5,ast1) these assets are .png files all same width but different height. The numbers can repeat and there is no order in them.


I need to load these assets to a long skinny composition and the comp need to be dynamically linked to the spreadsheet


To do it I made a pre-comp and put all my assets from 00 to last one in a timeline

Now this pre-comp has all the assets in order


then I import this timeline to final comp and enabled time ramping for it and let script jump to the time according to the correct order




this is all well if my assets same height but if they are different, I need a new solution

Hey Al, looking at it from a first glance, I guess you just need to set each 'comps' positions in the stack based on above comps layers heights. (if you want to achieve it solely in expressions)

With that in mind, you need to make 'tall enough' composition so that it will not go above maximum scenario of height.
