    I’m creating a Lower Third Template that’s using SourceRectAtTime with the copy being generated based on the comp name with a Split expression. But I need the 2nd line of text to be a different font than the top. I haven’t been able to wrap my head around the new .style expressions to get this to work. Any help would be appreciated.


    comp("Top Line - 2nd Line").name.split(" - ")[0] + "\r" + comp("Top Line - 2nd Line").name.split(" - ")[1]

    You need 2 layers. You can’t set different font types for the same layer using expressions.
