    Not too sure if I can describe my question clearly enough…but I’ll try.

    What I want is to have some expressions on a text layer,and to make it print all the layers’ names below it by playing order.

    So here’s my comp, from layer 2 to layer 19 they are all short vids and they are playing one by one, I’d like to display the layer’s names dynamically.

    Any help or hint is great appreciated!
