Index position isn’t working between comps and shapes
I have many shapes that I want to reference to a single comp with a shape in it, in case I need to change them later on.
The shapes are 2D and in different positions all over my canvas.
I want to be able to position each comp using the position data from the layer above it.
When I try to map the position data from the layer above, I get the wrong position.
What am I doing wrong?
As a simple example – I want to position the green star in the same place at the pentagon. The pentagon is pre-comped in a 300×300 comp, but everything is centred.
I put this in the star’s position field:
x = (index-1);
y = (index-1);
And place the star layer below the pentagon layer.
Why does the star jump to -1,-1?
