  • Getting world space X position from parented XYZ

    I have a 3D null with separated dimensions. I need the X position to always be the same as another 3D layer (which unfortunately is a child of another layer and does not have separated dimensions).

    Simple pickwhipping to the X coordinate would work if it wasn’t parented. Any suggestions?

    This should work:

    L = thisComp.layer(“Other 3D Layer”);
    L.toWorld(L.anchorPoint)[0]
