I need to know the width and height of a text layer after user sets it up with variable font size. When I get the dimensions of the text (which will appear on an HD1080 window) II can use the dimensions to put a block of colour just say 20px wider and higher than the text. Trivially easy, but not yet!
If I use Render layer to Image node: a) the text and image size is totally dependent on the height and width inputs b) leaving width and height as 0, 0 just makes a null image c) if I use the comp window dimensions I get an image of the text as it would appear on the screen and no idea how wide or high the text part of the image is in pixels
Sorry to talk about QC so much, but it's a piece of cake in QC. I find it frustrating that the Vuo documentation isn't helping me in any way with such a basic task.
