Hey, folks. I have a GIF that I have an AE CC and I have an existing object that already has a bunch of values I want - anchor point, position, scale, etc, set throughout the course of an image; I have another layer of text I've just added and realized that rather than manually tracking all the values, it would be far easier to just copy all of the values for one of the layer's scale, rotation, etc, and paste them in for the other layer. How can I do this?
Copy a property select a new layer and then paste.
Or, you could use expressions. For example reveal the position property of the master layer then select the target layer and reveal the position property by pressing "p" and then hold down the alt/option key to add an expression, then drag the pickwhip from the corner of the expression menu to the position property of the master layer and release. Now any change in the master layer position will be reflected in the target layer.
To learn more about expressions type "expressions" in the search help field at the top right corner of AE.
