stop keyframes from animating using an expression?
on May 7, 2014 at 9:09:54 am

hi guys,

just wanted to ask, if there's an expression to stop keyframes from animating using an expression?

e.g. if there are 2 keyframes for the position property,
then if i put that that certain expression, it wiLL not proceed
to animate

is there such an expression?

whats the use for me? why not just deLete the keyframes right?
but i dont want to deLete the keyframes, i wouLd Like to have an option to on/off it as i want to, if ever i change my mind to put the animation back again..

You can just have an extremely simple expression that sets the value of the property to a constant.
