    This tutorial explores a useful technique for tying a point control to position, so you can freely move a layer around that already has position animated, and save it as a preset. While you can also use the Transform effect for this, this ensures that your vector-based layers stay crisp if you choose to scale them up and you don’t have to worry about any bounding box weirdness.

    Expression
    hp = effect(“Hit”)(“Point”);
    [value[0]+hp[0],value[1]+hp[1]];

    Simplified expression
    hp = effect(“Hit”)(“Point”);
    value + hp;

    Simplified expression with offset
    hp = effect(“Hit”)(“Point”) – [960,540];
    value + hp;
