Linking Text to 'slider controller'
on Nov 19, 2018 at 4:19:48 pm

Hey, i just have a basic knowledge of how expressions work in after effects. But i am desperate to solve this issue. I want to link a text to a slider controller, so that when i type 1 it reflects on the slider controller. I have 'body' comp, inside is a slider controller switching out different layers with a comp. That comp has time remapping activated with the expression a=thisComp.layer("CHOOSE TOP ").effect("Slider Control")("Slider")
framesToTime(a). Now i need to control the slider with number text.

Hi,

You can put this in your slider exprexxion :

parseInt(thisComp.layer("1").text.sourceText);

Hope this works,
Cheers !
