    Hey, is there any way to link the scale of a layer to audio without using convert to audio keyframes? Thanks 🙂

    Hey Nihad, unless someone points out otherwise, without converting natively in AE or with a help of 3rd party plugins – not possible.

    Reasoning behind this – in order to access some sort of parameters though expressions, audio layer should at least have relative attribute to link to. However, “waveform” doesn’t have such and thats where “convert to audio keyframes” comes in place.

    Hey Tomas, thank you so much for your answer. I assumed it’s not possible, but wanted to confirm with professionals 🙂

    I’ve tried to make a circle scale react to audio but as a template. Been trying with audio spectrum and a circle mask but its impossible to imitate a circle scaling to audio.
