Improved parenting in After Effects.
Parent to the actual path, shape, or text of a layer.
How it works
Step 1. Select a child layer
Select any layer in After Effects that has a parent.
Step 2. Add controls
Pick a horizontal and/or vertical constraint for the child layer.
Step 3. Freely resize parent layers
Now you can freely change or keyframe the path, shape, or text of the parent layer and the position of the child layer will adjust automatically.Watch Demo
