Hey,

I'm trying to rotate a layer and have 10 other layers rotate to a degree of about 1.5 faster than the initial layer. My expressions knowledge is quite basic, and this could probably be done easily with them, but maybe theres a technique I don't know of that could accomplish this?

I've tried doing a Multiply expression on a layer that's parented to the main one, but it doesn't exponentially rotate further away whilst starting from teh same position. Here's a rough demonstration of the effect I want to achieve. I coloured the layers to show the separation and left the layers hanging out the edge so you can get a good idea of the movement.

Thank you!
