Making a Graphic Follow a Changing Text Layer

You can assign the Templater Settings effect to an audio-visual layer if you want Templater to adjust only its transform properties and not its containing data. In this way, Templater can adjust the layer’s transform properties relative to dynamic layers whose position and scale are updated with incoming data. This might be useful, for example, if your project has a non-dynamic logo graphic that needs to be aligned to the right of a dynamic text layer whose width changes as it updates with new words.

  1. Apply the Templater Settings effect to a graphic layer that you want to transform when an adjacent sibling layer changes.
  2. Attach the graphic layer to the dynamic text layer. Specify which edge or corner of the sibling layer this layer will attach to. Options include None, Left Edge, Top Edge, Right Edge, Bottom Edge, Top Left Corner, Top Right Corner, Bottom Left Corner, Bottom Right Corner.
