I cannot figure out what the syntax for reading the work area out point as an expression. I need to have a bunch of expressions trigger 1 sec prior to when the work area out point is set so that it will animate out at the right time and be a variable length according the the out point.
thanks,
quico

Do you mean the end of the work area (the one you set with the "N" key)? Expressions don't have access to that. You could set a comp marker there and access that, I guess.

Thanks for the response. Seems like a glaring omission and should be an accessable comp parameter. Im setting up a template to render out a variable length transition. I hope it gets added in cs5.5 I guess ill use a comp marker, it just adds more work on the end user.

or

thisComp.duration;

8 years later ... is it still the case that expressions don't have access to the work area in / out points?
