Hi, I am searching for a way to replicate something like on the attached gif, In the middle would be an Object (a shape for example) and I want four Markers around it, that automatically show the size value of the object in the middle.

Is there an expression or another way that let's me do that?

 

Very much appreciated, Céline

That's basically the old "auto-adaptive box around text" just in a different guise. If it's realyl only text, the sourceRactAtTime() expression function would be usable, but if you need it to be versatile, you pretty much have to do it the old, hard way like in this example for instance:

It's all complicated math and of course in addition you have to rig up the corners and value readouts in your example as well.

Thanks I think I figured it out. I did it manually with source text and a slider controller. Maybe not the most elegant way but it works. Thanks a lot for your help!
