    Hi Nick,

    I’m not sure why. I don’t have a scripting setup available at the moment to test, sorry.

    I think Google doesn’t allow using their maps in videos without licensing.

    You can check if openstreetmap coupled with something like https://openmaptiles.org/docs/style/maputnik/ fits your need.

    You’d need to add a (“ADBE Vector Shape – Group”) to (“Contents”) before you can add the (“ADBE Vector Shape”) to that new Group

    CC Time Blend Effects offers a Copy/Paste buffer, but it can be very buggy which is why it was removed from the app many years ago. (You can still get them via a workaround though, see Jake’s video for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7NVnad9Bhc )

    If you are talking about just the photography stuff, not the handdrawn animation at the start, you can find many many tutorials if you search for the parallax effect:

    I even have a movie with a few extra tips I don’t see mentioned often:

    Hi Antonio,

    go to the keyboard shortcuts and search for “Dialog”.

    You’ll see the list of all shortcuts to instantly jump to numerical entry (Edit in Dialog Box).

    For example, on Mac, cmd-shift-O to enter the opacity value.

    Sorry, forgot to get back to you.

    Note that if you’ve added a margin between the layers as I did in my example, you’ll also want to add half of that margin

    If all you need is the smaller text to move to the right if the name gets longer, then parent it to the first text, and give the position this expression:

    margin=60;
    sr=parent.sourceRectAtTime();
    [sr.left+sr.width+margin,0];

    As for the shape layer:

    add a shape layer, give it a path, give the path this expression:

    margin = 60;
    t1=thisComp.layer("John");
    s1=t1.sourceRectAtTime();
    t2=thisComp.layer("• This text layer adapts");
    s2=t2.sourceRectAtTime();
    l = t1.toComp([s1.left, s1.top])[0] - margin;
    r = t2.toComp([s2.left+s2.width, s1.top])[0] + margin;
    t = Math.min(t1.toComp([s1.left, s1.top])[1], t2.toComp([s2.left+s2.width, s2.top])[1]) - margin;
    b = Math.max(t1.toComp([s1.left, s1.top+s1.height])[1], t2.toComp([s2.left+s2.width, s2.top+s2.height])[1]) + margin;
    createPath( [fromComp([l,t]), fromComp([r,t]), fromComp([r,b]), fromComp([l,b])], [],[], true);

    add a Fill and a Round Corners modifier.
