Expression to Read Timecode of main / outer comp
by Ace Billet on Apr 1, 2011 at 8:48:02 pm
I have a video with some User Interface animations.
I want to include a time code on all the instances of that GUI,
BUT... I don't want it to read its own comp's TC (beacuse this would be 00:01 and going... and then next time it will also start from 00:00)
It should read the main / outside comp. So whenever you see the time code, it's in sync
with the real time. The GUI itself is nested about 5 comps deep in the "main" comp.
Is there an effect combined with an expression that can pull this off ?
