pos

Layer position.

pos= coord

posN= coordN

coord

Pixel offset from this layer's origin to the layer 0 origin (int, int).

coordN

Normalized offset from this layer's origin to the layer 0 origin (real, real).

In case of image, text, and solid color layers, pos= specifies the position of a layer anchor relative to the layer 0 anchor. posN= coordinate values are normalized relative to the actual layer 0 rect size.

In case of effect layers, pos= shifts the effect layer relative to the parent layer.

Positive values move the layer towards the right/bottom, negative towards the left/top. posN=0.5,0.5 moves the layer by half the layer 0 width and height down and right.

Properties

Layer attribute. Ignored if layer=0 or layer=comp.

Default

posN=0,0. This places the layer anchor at the same location as the layer 0 anchor if this is an image, text, or solid color layer. Positions an effect layer directly over or under its parent layer.

Example
