Auto-Increment Text to Layer Count
on Mar 5, 2014 at 1:45:15 am

Okay, so I have, say 200 audio files, all sequenced with a 2 frame gap in-between. I want to be able to automatically increment a text field to say which audio file is running, in a chronological sequence. (when the first audio file is running, text says 1, etc.)

My first idea to do this was to make an active camera thats named 1, 2, 3 etc that match up with the audio clips, so I could just do get the name of the Active Camera. I don't know of a way to automatically create these cameras.

My second idea was to get a script that can make composition markers at each of the audio breaks, and then have an expression count up the markers, but I can't find a script that will work to divide the layer gaps.

I was wondering if there was another way that I could do it, and what expression code I would use to get the layer cuts.
