I am new to after effects and have been trying to follow along with this tutorial:

at around 5 minutes in, they link the animated color to the controller by dragging a line from a box with a squiggly circle. I cant find it though when i click the stop watch.

Thanks in advance

Hi Darren,

I think you meant to link to a tutorial, but I don't see any link.

Anyway, it sounds like you're talking about the pickwhip, so if you search for more info on that it should be useful. This pickwhip is used to link one property to another using expressions, and you enable the expression options by ALT clicking on the stopwatch. It sounds like you might be clicking without the ALT, which just adds a keyframe.
