Is there a way to link the typewriter effect to audio?

I want the typewriter to type when the audio levels are above 0. And I want it to stop when its on 0.

I tried parenting the ''end'' property to the keyframed audio. But it didnt work like that..

Please help !

Thanks in advance !

Possible, but tricky. You'd have to set up a loop that calculates how much time previous to the current time the audio level has been above zero. Then convert that to a percentage to tie to the Typewriter's Start parameter.
There may be other ways to approach it, depending on how you have things set up.

Dear Dan,

Thanks for the advise. But to be completely honest, I have no idea where you are talking about. I am new to expressions and I am trying to learn them. I studied the Expression table of contents but Its still kind of blurry.

Is there maybe a good tutorial about the things you advised me ?

Thanks in advance,

Koran

This example might be helpful, even though it's not exactly what you're doing:

This is a tricky one to tackle though, if you're new to expressions.

Thanks Dan,

I am definitely going to try and tackle it with the help you sent me.
I basically only need it to play the effect if the audio levels (i think referred as threshold) are above 0.

Thanks,

Yoran

Okay, I have no idea what I am doing ! hahaha..

I have to sync up text with a voice over, and I have to make 65 videos of 3 to 4 minutes within the span of 2 months.

Can you maybe help me out ? It's great that you are sending already made expressions, but I really don't understand them. This is also because my native language is dutch and not english.

It sounds interesting (but difficult). My hunch is that you probably need a script for this, but it's hard to say for sure without knowing the nature of the assets you're working with. I wish I had time to dive into it.

Dear Dan,
I can send you the project file with an explanation of some things if you want.
You don't have to check if you are too busy, but if you find some time and feel like helping me out it would be amazing.

Thanks in advance,

Yoran
