Hello, hope someone can help me with this 🙂

I'm trying to show the opacity % in the project on the objects as they change in text, the reason for this I'm exporting as stills for going over in another software.

So I'm expecting on my stills it would show 72%, 71%, 70%, etc ....So I won't have to do it manually for a large project

I've tried parenting the opacity to a text box.... 😕 this didn't work.

I've done a mockup image below.

Much appreciated, Jody

I have found the answer to this via the creative cow network

I ended up with the Expression on the text layer 

Math.round(thisComp.layer("Shape Layer 1").content("Ellipse 2").content("Fill 1").opacity)+"%"
