Mylenium or Dan Eberts, simple expression question
on Sep 26, 2006 at 3:16:31 pm

Have 3 layers, that I have the opacity tied to trapcodes soundkeys, but I would like them to be delayed by 10 frames each. Simple pickwhip to create:

thisComp.layer(" Sound Keys Right").effect("Sound Keys")("Output 1")

but I cannot figure out how to delay the layers with a 10 frame offset. Ending up doing it the long way, by creating 3 soundkey layers, then delaying each of those by 10 frames, but I would imagine that this could of been done in the original expression.

Thanks
Johnny Cuevas

Try this.

offset = thisComp.frameDuration * 10;
thisComp.layer(" Sound Keys Right").effect("Sound Keys")("Output 1").valueAtTime(time - offset)

Thank you Byron, worked like a charm. That one is going in the notebook.
