Numbers in the Effect Controls panel should have a built-in calculator, like in After Effects

In After Effects, clicking a number in the Effect Controls panel, in the Timeline, or the Properties panel, gives you a built-in calculator. Typing "360/12" will calculate the number 30. Typing "1920/4" will calculate the number 480. Typing "1920-50" calculates the number 1870. Etc.

This is a very efficient way to rotate, place or scale a layer to a specific value! A time saver! The built-in calculator makes it super-easy to place logos or graphics an exact amount of pixels from the lower right corner, place picture-in-picture layers in the correct position, etc..

We need this functionality in Premiere pro too! Pretty please!
