Hi everybody,

Once again I ride to you seeking your counsel.
It's always interesting playing with expressions and in this particular case I'd like to play with timeRemap by adding "+ 50 frames" to the layer following an other.

Imagine a comp with a considerable number of same videos but displaying them with a gap of 50 frames.
I instinctively though something like:

thisComp.layer(index+1).timeRemap+(50)

The problem is, 50 isn't the number of frames, it's just a number (can't figure out what it is yet).
Do you know how to get the exact number of frames wish skipping ?

Thanks for your ideas & time :)

The value you seek isn't frames but time... specifically seconds. You need to figure out which portion of a second 50 frames represents in your comp.

Thanks for the reply. I was hopping that we could switch time and frames the same way we can in the composition windows...

framesToTime(50) will do that for you.
