If I want to align 2 layers, I go to the align panel. The problem with that aproach is that it aligns the layers to an average position for the selected layers. What I actually want to do is to align the second layer to the first one, there is, I want the first layer to stay put and the second layer to be aligned (bottom, center or top) to the first layer without changing the position of the first layer. Any ideas?
copy and past the position keyframes from your first layer to your second layer (the one you want to move)
or you can add an expression to your second layer position property linking it to the first layer position property. It should look like:
thisComp.layer("your targetlayer name").position
Hope that helps,
I'll give it a try.
