Hello everyone!

I've created a composition with a small square inside. I want this square to rotate just 5 seconds, so I've made this expression to rotate the layer 72 degrees per second:

if (time <5) time*72 else 0

It works perfectly, but I wonder if there is any way to make the square stop slowly and not that abrupt.

Sorry for my english and thank you very much for your time :-)

Maybe you could link the expression to a slider control.

Thank you very much for answering :-)

I tried to build the expression linking it to a slider control, but I'm not getting what I need. Not because After Effects; because of me, of course.

This is my project, right now: 6062_rotatingsquare.aep.zip

I want the square to be rotating regularly until it gets the second number five, where it's going to stop slowly, as if I'd used "Easy Ease In".

Hope I explained well. Thanks a lot again!

Try using an easeOut expression on your rotation: easeOut(time, 0, 5, 0, 360)

I made a simple project using one, but did it over 20 seconds, because over 5 seconds, it seemed too fast: 6065_easeoutcs5.5.aep.zip
