I'm reading tutorials on expressions I'm having trouble wrapping my head around it.
use the adobe resources for starters. they will also refer to others.
What I'm trying to do is create an expression that will set the X position parameter of a layer to (960+(anchor point x value) of the same layer, while leaving Y alone.
open the expression for position. now you can put square brackets with values. for example [100,100] will set you position to 100,100.
you want the x to be 960+anchor point x value. so open brackets "[" and now type "960" and "+" and pick whip to the x anchor point. this is what you have so far:
you want the Y to remain the same so add the comma "," and now pick whip to the y rotation. and close brackets. finally you have this:
