No 3rd Party Plug-ins are used in this tutorial - Just straight After Effects.

This tutorial uses 2 powerful expressions. Here they are:

1. Round to the nearest whole number:
s = thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Slider Control")("Slider");
Math.round(s)
2. Layer marker triggers addition to current value:
s = effect("Slider Control")("Slider");
n = 0;
if (marker.numKeys > 0){
n = marker.nearestKey(time).index;
if (marker.key(n).time > time){
n--;
}
}
s + n


Keywords

sourcetext, slider control, expression
