Iris MolemanTime synchronisation between Comp and nested comp, when Time Remapping is used

Hello,

When I'm working in after effects, I often lock the composition viewer and open the timeline of a nested comp inside the concerning composition. In that way, it's possible to edit the nested comp and directly view the result in the master comp. After Effects automatically plays the master comp on the right time then. But it's a problem when the nested comp is a Time-remapped layer inside the Mastercomp. Is there a way to edit in 'real time' in the nested comp, and let AE automatically jump to the corresponding'Time-remap-time'in the Master comp?

Thanks in advance!

No.

Time-remapping is one-to-one going from the containing comp the time-remapped comp (that is, every frame of the containing comp refers to one and only one frame in the time-remapped comp), but it's one-to-many going the other way (that is, a single frame in the time-remapped comp may appear multiple times in the containing comp).

That said, I have a rough internal-use-only script for dealing with time-remapping navigation; maybe I could polish it up a bit and release it.

Does your time-remapping ever go one-to-many? If so, how does this tend to work for you?

What about extreme slow motion, where a single frame of a time-remapped content is stretched over many frames in the containing comp? In your mind, what's the most natural point to match back to there?
