control two keyframe values with two text layers
on Oct 2, 2018 at 9:13:07 am

hi everyone,

i'm searching for a possibility to control two keyframes, which are applied to one slider, with two different text layers.
i found a solution to control one keyframe, but my coding knowledge is only vestigial and i can't do it by myself. so i'm asking for help...

Mark, I'm sure we can help, but you'll have to get more specific. Can you describe in more detail what you have in your project and what you're trying to do? What exactly do you mean by "control?" What's the end goal you wish you achieve with this setup?

great, thanks!

here is a gif of the final result:



i want to have control over the first and the last amount via two text layers. i use a slider to let the amount fall. so when i write a number in the first text layer, it should effect the first keyframe value of the slider and the second should effect the second keyframe value.

the goal is a bulk production, where the composition gets feeded by a google spread sheet. the script i use for this is called templater from dataclay.

Here's one way to do that:
12757_controlsliderwithtwotextlayers.aep.zip

The expression on the slider says, in English, "as time goes from the first keyframe to the second keyframe in the timeline, interpolate linearly from the integer in text layer "Value 1" to the integer in text layer "Value 2."
