    What I would suggest would be to expose a property called 'unstrechedTime' or 'parentTime' or, 'hostTimeline' (nomenclature is up to you) on a layer or comp that would allow expressions to do calculations to solve the above using the time from Premiere, ideally with both a relative and an absolute time.

    I've done it when nesting a responsive comp and stretching it by exposing a 'unstrechedTime' slider as an essential property. Then in the parent comps layer, i've set it to time.

    This won't work in a mogrt as there's no automatic way to pass the Premiere timecode into a essential property.

    I see this as a path to achieve responsive formats as well - where one comp could automatically stretch to different aspect ratios in the host. Imagine that you could define how a mogrt should handle aspect ratios (fill, cover, stretch) and having a 'essentialHost' object with data from Premiere:

    essentialHost.absoluteTime
    essentialHost.time
    essentialHost.width
    essentialHost.height
    essentialHost.aspect
    essentialHost.fps (or more AE conformant properties for frame duration etc.)

    This would in our production situation reduce our corporate essential grapics template count to a third, as we now export every template in High, Square and Wide versions to account for at least most of the different SoMe video formats that are out here.
