link expression through comps
on Jun 21, 2019 at 11:49:59 am

Hello, i'll explain what i'm trying to do.

- I have to create a slider to control the visibility of the levels inside a comp.
- I want the slider to be outside that comp, to a dedicated level with other slider for other comps.
- I get a sintax error (images)
- But it works if i put the slider into the same composition on a NULL layer.

Why? It was working this system back in the years.
How can i solve?

Thank you

Switch=comp("Man").layer("Controls").effect("Slider Control")("Slider")

The strings are case sensitive. In the image, "CONTROLS" appears in upper case, and in your code in lowercase "Controls". Could it be that?

Nope, i've tryed everything.

But i just re-installed After Effects and now it works, probably was bugged by the time?
