@DOGmotion

That’s exactly it, brilliant! :) I was trying to play with sourceText and range selector, but wasn’t getting anywhere.

Thanks a lot for your help Yahor, this is a real time saver! :)

Hi, guys I’m working on a project where I d like to link the text value to a specific attribute, such as opacity.

It it possible to link for example the letter ‘t’ to 50% opacity, or a specific position, and the letter ‘b’ to an other value? So when the text layer is set to ‘t’ the opacity is 50% for example, and when it’s ‘b’ the opacity is 80%.

Thanks! :)
Try this:
text = thisComp.layer("TextName").text.sourceText.value; // Change the layer name
text = text.toLowerCase();
switch (text) {
    case 'b': 30; break; // Change 30 to have another value when your text = "b" 
    case 't': 50; break; // The same thing with 50 and text "t" 
    default: 0; // Default value
}
This expression works with both uppercase and lowercase letters (“t” and “T”). So the value on “T” will be the same as on “t”. If you don’t want this, remove this line:
text = text.toLowerCase();

Thanks Yahor! Very easy to follow. Works like a charm :)

Is there a way to specify the letter position in a word? For instance the source text will only take into account the third letter in a specific word? This would really be a time saver!

The car sky dives in the last film were pretty thrilling to watch. Especially when seeing the behind the scenes, and that they really dropped cars from planes to film it!

True when driving home you always feel like… mm let’s see what this car can do :P

This is not really a solution, since anyone who extracts the files can do with them anything they please. A solution would be to encrypt the AE files in someway, like it is currently done with plugins, such as Misterhorse’s latest animation bundles (that might explain his high sales!). Its genius in my opinion.

But I missed the information. What happened? Why Vectorica was banned?

Hey wayman, you can take a look at his twitter account, tweets around March I think :)

Btw, just something that came to mind. Are we allowed to use videos on envato channel in our video previews. Some shots are really great and would be a great addition to corporate templates etc.

It would be great to have a staff reply on this. Thanks! :)
