toggling layer groups on and off
on Feb 5, 2013 at 10:01:05 pm

Hey Folks,

Doing a big project with all kinds of layers and precomps. It's a project that will be done in lots of languages.

Is there some kind of expression that allows me to click one thing on a master layer that will turn off a bunch of linked layers (like, let's say I'm turning off all the english layers) and turn on all of the, say thai layer?

I know I can do it with opacity, but for what I'm doing, I'd just like to be able to turn whole groups of layers (scattered through various precomps) of and on.

THANKS MUCH!!!

-Tom

Hi there, I have just released a script that address' your needs...
http://aescripts.com/layer-groups/
//=======================================================

Another more manual way is to create linked expressions to say a checkbox expression control..

var onOrOff =effect("Wiggle Angle?")("Checkbox");
//if switch is on
//=======================================================
if(onOrOff ==true){100;}else{0;}
