Get world position of trim path point?

Hey all,

I was hoping any of you would know if it's possible to get the position of the point at which a trimmed path is trimmed.  Meaning, if I have a path and I trim the end 23% I want to know the position of that point on the path. Is this possible?

The end goal is to get the positions of points along any paths.  If I need to calculate this, how would I do it?

Using CC18 and later, AE expressions have access to more path-related functions; you can use "pointOnPath" and feed it a % to get the actual X and Y positions along a path and different percents.
