I’d like to share this (useless?) expression based preset that is really simple (stupid?) but involve some line of (boring!) coding. Automatically scale layer to comp size in After Effects by fit, fill and fill maintaining original aspect ratio. Hope that you’ll find it useful. And if you want to share improvements, you’re more than welcome.I don’t remember why I developed it, but I think that can be useful in some circumstances where you have to experiment and test with comp size. Or maybe you can use it just for fun or for learning purpose.
It has 4 Checkboxes – Scale to Fit Maintaining Aspect Ratio, Scale to Fill, Original Size, Bypass – for 5 combinations of use:
Combo 3, Scale the layer to fill the comp size (it maintain the original aspect ratio of the layer):
Combo 4, restore the original size of the layer:
Combo 5, bypass the entire presets (it restore the scale value defined in the layer properties if you have modified it):
After the explanation it might appear complicated but actually it’s not. Check it by yourself.
