| **Math with time in index based expression**

Hey there everyone

I´m having a bit of a hard time coz maybe my math is just not good enough, but I couldn´t figure out how to solve this problem:

I´m trying to make a triangles tunnel, what i did by using an index based expression to the outer radius property:

time*4000-index*800 // the numbers 4000 and 800 are the optimal i found for

//the animation, but what i did was to assign slider controls into that expression

and then i made a merge paths with another triangle that divided the previous value of the outer radius by 3, generating then the hole in the triangle.

the problem is that i need the triangles to get broader when they get away from the center, what doesn´t happen with that "time*" expression.

figure A shows the storyboard and how the triangles should be

figure B shows the result i got so far with that expression assigned to 1 2 alternate colors layers and then duplicating them.

hope that i was clear enough

thanks in advance
