Hello! I'm hoping someone can help me please. I'm writing a generic export script that wants the world positions (and ideally, scale, orientation, opacity if possible) of all the layers in all the comps. I have a main comp and inside that there's a childComp. Inside the childComp there's a bunch of layers, children, etc and in the mainComp I move the entire childComp around.
Currently I do this...
curLayer.property("position").expression = "toWorld(anchorPoint);";
for each layer and that works for most things except the layers in the childComp - it just returns the world position inside the childComp. I've also tried this...
var exp = "comp[\""+parentComp.name+"\"].layer[\""+item.name+"\"].toWorld(toWorld(anchorPoint));"
curLayer.property("position").expression = exp;
which would give me something like...
comp["mainComp"].layer["compLayer"].toWorld( toWorld(anchorPoint) );
but that didn't work either and also relies on it only being one comp deep. Ideally this would work for many nested comps.
Is there an expression I can apply on export to calculate the overall world position at all? Or if not, some actual script that I can use instead rather than relying on the expressions?
