Re: Move Layers to a new comp

LayerCollection precompose() method
app.project.item(index).layers.precompose(layerIndicies, name, moveAllAttributes);

or you could create the comp and use
layer.copyToComp(compLocation);

I am trying to build a larger script that automatically creates a moving arrow and this is totally what I need to continue. Thanks. But is there really no way to access the mask shape information beyond copying and pasting the mask into the position channel? Would there be a solution if the mask wer...

Re: I want Adjustment Layer to only effects certian layers?

Unfortunately that is not an option either. I am using the alpha channel from another comp on the adjustment layers to hide and reveal my solids. Putting the channel effect on the layer will not work correctly when I adjust the position of my solids. I could achieve this by creating multiple track m...

I am trying to make the grid effect in after effects to work as if it were a never ending 3d layer. I can't use a photo of a grid, I need something that goes on forever and keeps the same lin...
