Control color value of Individual hold keyframes.
on Dec 6, 2017 at 7:32:06 pm

Hi,

I was wondering if there was a way to control the color value of individual keyframes.

I want to be able to control the first and last hold keyframes without changing the color value of the middle keyframe.

Please let me know!
Thanks.

Something like this maybe:


c1 = effect("Color Control")("Color");
c3 = effect("Color Control 2")("Color");
if (time < key(2).time)
c1
else if (time < key(3).time)
value
else
c3

Hi,

I can't seem to get it to work when its 2 linear keyframes. How would you rewrite it for 2 linear keyframes where I want to only change the color value of the first keyframe?

Something like this:

c1 = effect("Color Control")("Color");
c2 = key(2).value;
t1 = key(1).time;
t2 = key(2).time;
linear(time,t1,t2,c1,c2)

This seemed to work, but jumps back to the first color after it hits the 2nd keyframe, any solutions? or simplified code?

if (numKeys&lt;1){
value;
}
else{
idx1 = nearestKey(time).index;
if (key(idx1).time>time) idx1--;
idx2 = idx1+1;
if (idx1&lt;1) idx1=1 else if (numKeys<idx2) idx2=numKeys;
val1 = thisComp.layer("COLOR").effect("color")("Color");
val2 = thisComp.layer("COLOR").effect("color 2")("Color");

linear(time, key(idx1).time, key(idx2).time, val1, val2);
};

Sorry Dan.

Your original response worked out for me. I think we simultaneously posted responses and it overlapped.

Really appreciate your quick responses.

Best,
Chris
