Change text layer to reflect visible clip?
on Sep 16, 2011 at 1:48:36 am

I am using this expression:
thisComp.layer(index+1).source.name
to create a title overlay to show the name of the layer below, works great. Is there anyway I can modify this so that it will change to automatically show the name of the next visible layer instead of the next layer? I would like to have a series of comps sequentially in a time line and have the text layer update to show the name of the comp currently visible.

I hope that makes sense.


title---title---title
comp1------------
-------comp2-----
------------comp3

Amazing!


This is such a useful way of getting a 'video index' of your footage to check and share an overview of all your clips and stills.

Thanks Dan!
