How to offset animation duration and Starting point with expressions?

I need a little help sussing out what expression was used to bind the time stretch to "Duration" in this video. The Essential Graphics templates can be incredibly powerful for adding modular control to animations and lower thirds among other things, I'm using them for some infographics panels and I want them to be a bit more flexible. I'd also like to be able to offset when the animation begins, as this would make dubbing over videos with narration much more fluid and responsive so I wouldn't have to make a new animation from scratch every time I had to account for time differences.

Does anyone know what the expression is to accomplish this task? I need the information very badly, as it would help make setting up standard templates for my work significantly easier between premiere and After Effects.

Yeah But i have no idea what I'm supposed to be looking for in the project file. I have it, but I can't find the link to the expression or what the expression is. If I knew what the expression was I could spot it, but it's bogged down in all these layers.

Nevermind, I think i found it under the "Shadow" Layer at Trim Path 1 "End" point.



duration=thisComp.layer("CONTROLS").effect("Duration")("Slider");
ease(time,1,duration,0,100);
