  • Concatenate the texts and the styles

    Hi, I’m brazilian, so sorry for my bad english.
    I trying to concatenate 2 layers of text in After Effects. But I want to concatenate the texts and the styles.
    For this moment I did this:

    txt01 = thisComp.layer("txt 01").text.sourceText;
    txt02 = thisComp.layer("txt 02").text.sourceText;
    font01 = txt01.getStyleAt(0,time).font;
    font02 = txt02.getStyleAt(0,time).font;
    txtStyle01 = createStyle().setText(txt01).setFont(font01);
    txtStyle02 = createStyle().setText(txt02).setFont(font02);
    txtStyle01 + txtStyle02

    But the layer is returning

    [object Object][object Object]

    Using the variables separately they return the text formatted with the font correctly

    Your expression won’t be able to apply multiple styles to one text layer. You can concatenate the text, but all characters will end up with the same style.
