Reverse a expression
on Jan 11, 2017 at 10:03:10 am


Quick question, I am trying to reverse a expression in After Effects but after searching for like an hour I still don't have anny clue.
The expresion that I am trying to reverse is: " thisComp.layer("Joep").content("Trim Paths 1").end ".

The expression links to a trimpath of a round shape layer, and i am trying to link it to a radial whipe effect but I need to reverse the value.
Because the trimp path goes from 0 to 100 and the radial whipe from 100 to 0.

Help is welcome ๐Ÿ˜„

thisComp.layer("Joep").content("Trim Paths 1").end

There is probably a better way but I'd do it like this:

x = thisComp.layer("Joep").content("Trim Paths 1").end;
