 Looking for a Dan Ebberts expression mentioned in Automated Odometer Tut! on Nov 19, 2013 at 12:31:49 amLast Edited By Adam Carmichael on Nov 19, 2013 at 1:15:57 am

Hello all!

I'm looking for some help on a certain expression mentioned in this video:

(around 11:30)

Aharon talks about a modified expression for the odometer control slider expression that makes the next number spot not change until the preceding value makes the turn from 0 to 9.

I hope that's not super confusing, hopefully I can get some help from the man himself! I'm pretty new to expressions, though fairly comfortable with the workflow and tools/effects.

Thanks!

Adam

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find that one. I do have another one (better, I think). I'd post it, but it was a work for hire, so I don't really feel at liberty to hand it out.

Ah, bummer. Is the general idea pretty complex? I have the expressions from the above video all set up...not sure if it's a tweak of that or something entirely different.

Anyway, thanks for responding!

I found it! He actually included it in one of the project files I hadn't looked into:

Thousands place-holder example:

slider = thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Slider Control")("Slider");
myDigit = Math.floor(slider/1000)%10;
previous = slider%1000/1000;
myVal = myDigit + linear(previous,.999,1.0,0,1);
y = linear(myVal,0,10,1500,0);
x = value[0];
[x,y]

In case that helps anyone down the road.

Thanks!
