Link to track Multi-layer


#1

Can a feature be added to allow multiple layers to be linked to track at the same time? Currently only the layer that is highest in the hierarchy will link when you have multiple layers highlighted. so you have to go 1 by 1 to link them all.


#2

Yes. :slight_smile:

We have a lot of feature requests on multi-selection in general which we intend to get to. I can’t say when though.

Which version are you using? Plugin or Standalone?

i am using the stand alone version of Mocha Pro

If you’re using standalone, one thing you could do in the meantime while waiting for this feature is to script a custom Python tool to do this for you.

We have a “link_to_track” property for each layer that can be modified in Python, so you could potentially just cycle through each selected layer and apply the layer you want:

No worries. If you need help with the Python API feel free to ask.
