Thanks

You can use this technique for the entire face, or for the eyes/mouth individually. This is a common method for cycling through phonemes as well.


// Each frame corresponds to a different emotion state, starting with frame zero.

emotionSlider = thisComp.layer("Controls").effect("Emotion Slider")("Slider");
framesToTime(emotionSlider)
