Was wondering if it was possable to add an ease in to this expression below?

if (transform.xRotation > 90) {
0
} else {
value };

What are you easing from and to, and over what range? You could do something like this, but I doubt it's what you're after:

r = transform.xRotation;
ease(r,80,90,value,0)

thank you for responding i really appreciate your help.

I have layers revealing like a flap using one of your inertial bounce expressions. I keep them at 0 opacity until they reach 90 degrees at which time the become 100 opacity and the bounce(flap) and rest at 0 degrees based on a decay parameter. They go from off to on I was hoping they could ease from 0 opacity to 100 opacity over 5 frames or so...so they didn't just pop on screen and continue to be 100 for the remaining duration of the layer in the timeline

Is there a rotation keyframe at 90 degrees? You need something to trigger the ease expression, otherwise you have to create a loop that goes back in time to find the transition to 90 degrees?

x rotation is keyframed starting at 180 over 30 frames it goes to 0 with the following expression tied to it:


amp = .3;
freq = 1.0;
decay = 2.0;
n = 0;
if (numKeys > 0){
n = nearestKey(time).index;
if (key(n).time > time){
n--;
}}
if (n == 0){ t = 0;
}else{
t = time - key(n).time;
}
if (n > 0){
v = velocityAtTime(key(n).time - thisComp.frameDuration/10);
value + v*amp*Math.sin(freq*t*2*Math.PI)/Math.exp(decay*t);
}else{value}


Opacity has the following expression tied to it:

if (transform.xRotation > 90) {
0
} else {
value };

I sincerely thank you for taking the time to work with me on this.

Assuming the x rotation reaches 90 degrees half way between the first two keyframes, this should work:

fadeFrames = 5;
rX = transform.xRotation;
t = (rX.key(1).time + rX.key(2).time)/2;
if (time >= t)
ease(time,t,t+framesToTime(fadeFrames),0,100)
else
0

Perfection! Thank you...so much! Works perfect just changed the keyframes to 3. AWESOME!

Hi, I'm just reading up about expressions and learning the basics and came across this post while searching for a way to ease a rotation effect I've got attached to a null that controls a camera.

This expression affects the rotation which stops at 180 degress:

t=time*5 +10;
if(t<180){[t];
}else{[180];
}

How can I ease this effect so that the camera doesn't stop so sudden?

Thanks.

One way:

easeOut(time,0,34,10,180)

Thanks Dan,

can you tell me what each of the numbers represent please, I haven't got that far yet :)

(time,0,34,10,180)

The expression just says "as time varies from zero to 34 seconds, vary the output from 10 to 180 degrees". I chose 34 seconds because that's the time it takes your original expression to get to 180.
