How can I get or calculate the original current composition time of a time-remapped or stretched layer? My composition has both stretched and non stretched layers and I want to display the current playback time (relative to the composition) as it would be if non of the layers were stretched.

1 Answer 1


The source time of a layer is found with the expression

thisComp.layer("some layer").sourceTime()

More about it can be found by reading the manual.
