    Height of layer depending its scale

    quentind45901887

      Hello everybody,

       

      I'm working on a UI on After Effects and I want to automate it with expressions.

       

      I'm kinda stuck right now. Here's my issue :

       

      I have a shape layer (SL 1) whose scale is animated. Above it, i have an other shape layer (SL 2). I want the SL 2 to never cross the SL 1, I want it to slide along when the SL 1 is growing up (as in Apple OS Desktop interface toolbar).

       

      For that, I want to get the height/width of my SL 1. I used sourceRectAtTime() but unfortunately, this expression doesn't considered the evolution of my scale.

       

      Is there a way to get the height/width of a layer evolving as my scale is changing ?

       

      Is there a "toComp" expression but for scale's values ?

       

      Tell me if I'm not clear on my demand.

       

      Thank you very much !
