I created a shape with 3 groups, each one of them have a rectangle inside with a diferent movement. I need to parent the position of a ouside shape to one of the rectangles shape inside the layer. How can I do this?

 

Thank you

This is possible with expressions, but involves some slightly more complicated coding. Without getting too into the weeds, the elements within the shape layer are in "layer space," and so to tie them to another layer in the composition, will have to convert them to "composition space."

The functions toComp and fromComp can perform this math for you, or if you're not up for expressions research, this handy tool does exactly what you're after. https://gumroad.com/l/EcWYU
