HELP! I think this expression is crashing CS4
on Nov 10, 2009 at 3:27:23 pm

This is maybe one for expressions forum, but incase ppl don't go on there who might know...

I've had a major problem with a big project of ours since we moved over to CS4 from AE7. I am getting the 'overflow converting ratio denominators 17::18' error message constantly when scrubbing timeline, changing bit depth, actually pretty much anything in a certain part of the project. In AE7 I got the error every so often, but in CS4 when it comes up it just doesn't go away! I have to force quit AE. It's not the usual thing of footage being wrong frame rate for comp it's in, etc - I've tried all that...

So, anyway - I think I found the culprit and stripped the project down to a couple of comps that are basically just text layers with counter expressions applied and precomped up a bit.

The following code is applied to 'source text' on text layers (the 'initial' field is the only difference on the diff text layers): -

(See code at bottom of post)

Can anyone see anything in this code (Dan Ebberts maybe?) that doesn't look right or that could be changed to do exactly the same job?

I've been hounding Adobe for months now and they are being less than useless.

If anyone could help I would be eternally grateful!

Cheers, Jim.


initial = 89

mins = Math.floor(time/60)

secs = Math.floor(time - (mins * 60))
secsCount = time

if ((mins < 180) & (secsCount < 2000000)) {

if (secs < 10){
secsT = "0" + secs
} else {
secsT = secs

text.sourceText = (initial + mins) + ":" + secsT
} else {
text.sourceText = "22:00"
