Hello,

is there any property with the starting point / inpoint of a brush which is part of a paint effect?

Thanks a lot!

I don't believe it's accessible through expressions, but I know it is through scripting:

app.project.activeItem.layer(1).effect("Paint").stroke.property("Brush 1").duration.value[0]

I think you can get to it via the property number:

thisComp.layer(1).effect("Paint").stroke("Brush 1")(2).value[0]

Thank you both!!
Dan Ebbert's approach do work well. Dan Fredley's suggestion do not, since one cannot "look for property by name in group stroke" within an expression.

And as I saw the end point of the stroke is then value[1].

Thank you once again!

Very cool, Dan. It's good to know you can access some of these "non-pickwhipable" properties with their index number.

Hi all,

is there any documentation about which index / number represents a property?
This would be very helpful!

Thanks a lot!
Anna
