    Cannot connect Beam Effect point to a Layer connected to Null layer?

    TheThirdWave Level 1

      I hope I'm doing something wrong here and it's not AE... I'm trying to connect a Beam Effect point to another layer's Position property. This other later is the Child of a Null layer which I want to animate. When I try to this, the Beam Effect point goes completely off screen.

       

      Why don't I just connect the Beam effect point to the first layer and leave it like that? If I do it that way it does work fine. However, the parent layer which is the Null layer contains tracked Position property keyframes that are not where I want the Child layer to be. (I hope this makes sense)

       

      Am I just doing something wrong? Is it a bug? Or just impossible?

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks in advance!
