    Apply animation from one layer to another

    sparklekins

      I have a text layer in AE 2018 that has animation keyframes applied to it - basically the text changes shape and resizes itself over a period of a couple of seconds. There a 4 keyframes in this animate layer.

       

      I want to add a solid colour box behind the text to help it stand out on the screen, and I want the box to resize as per the text layer. Is it possible to somehow 'connect' the shape layer to the text layer so it inherits its animation - or do I have to copy the animate keyframes to the solid box layer?

       

       

      Thanks!
