    Hello, don’t know is it a bug or a feature…

    I’m making MOGRT file in AE that has screenshot of website on a back and some text on the front.
    The screenshot I want to be changed in Premiere with media replacement feature, and since not all screenshots are same length, the length of the picture can vary, however, no matter what I do in AE to position image TOP EDGE to the TOP of the -it’s always centered by the midpoint in Premiere.
    Is there a way to workaround this? I need the image to be aligned to the top edge of the screen by Y coordinate not centered by midpoint

    Looks like MOGRT “remembers” the size of the “first” background image you have used in after effects for placeholder purpose and if the image has different properties-it’s still calculated within “original” boundaries and Anchor Point is centered. So for example, if the first image you have used in the AE to prepare MOGRT was 1920x3000px, then ALL subsequent images will be put in those properties, so if the new file is 1920x2000px then you will have 500px of empty spaces on top and bottom.
    And NO MATTER how I try to change position of the image in AE, with scripts, nulls etc-seems lie AE does not transfer scripts to Premiere with Media Replacement

    Can you try an expression on the scale value, to determine the how large the current image is, something like:

    Width = thisLayer.width;
    MaxSize = 1920;
    myScaleMultiplier = 1920/Width;
    myScale = myScaleMultiplier*100;

    Thanx, I’ve tried similar approach but it looks like AE is not exporting any script data with “media replacement” to MOGRT that’s the main problem, however I haven’t found anything that states that in documentation or internet.
    Only keyframe animation works.
