Hello creative milk generators...

I have a question which I have been trying to figure out for hours but have no possible solution yet. Is it possible to have a slider control for a timeremapped layer within a time remapped comp? if so how? otherwise I will have to find another solution.

The project involves a rigged character. His mustache is a shape layer which I animated and time remapped so it looked like he can talk. This mustache is in a precomp which I animated various layers and then have a slider control controlling the time remap of this precomp to get the 2.5d head turn effect that is shown in various helpful tutorials on youtube.

Hope It is clear enough and would be thankful for any help!

I think you're after something like this:

sliderPos = thisComp.layer(“control layer“).effect(“slider name“)(“Slider");

'sliderPos' is just a variable name
'Control layer' is the layer that the expression control slider is located on - so that would be in the parent comp
'slider name' is what you've named the slider
