how to change color in layer order
on May 13, 2011 at 2:14:20 pm

Hi, I need to make an animation of bunch of layer with the scale and diferent color to the first one to the last. Is one way I can do this with a expresion, I can control the layer scale with expresions, but I need change the color to the upper layers. I use the fill effect. but is a slow way. Can Color Ctrol do this in one simple way.

Thanks.

I'm not sure I understand your question. A Color Control won't actually change the color of anything unless you link an expression to it (the Color parameter of Fill, for example).

You could set up an expression that changes a color parameter based on a layer's index, but I'm not sure that's what you're asking. If so, a description of how you want the layer's order in the layer stack to affect the color would be helpful.

Hi Mr. Dan.
That's it. I need to change the color of the layer base in the index. For explample. I have the first layer blue, and the second more dark, try to make a kind of gradient base in the layer order.

Hope you can help me.
I use this expresion inthe scale to made te layer pop up in the compostion

Delay=thisComp.layer("borde").effect("Delay")("Slider");
thisComp.layer(index+1).transform.scale.valueAtTime(time-Delay)*.9;

I saw this expression used in position.

So, I want to do something like this on the layer's color.

Sorry English no is my mother lenguage.

You could use pretty much the same expression for Fill's Color parameter:

Delay=thisComp.layer("borde").effect("Delay")("Slider");
thisComp.layer(index+1).effect("Fill")("Color").valueAtTime(time-Delay)*.9;
