Hi, everybody. I just was going to upload a cool project with sheet music notation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=AVNAocGWXYk

In the end, I was going to universalize the expressions, and I’ve got a problem. When it comes up to 45th comp (of 52), the Universalizer just hangs and is doing nothing. The expression is:

ST = inPoint P = thisComp.layer(“Current”).transform.xPosition.valueAtTime(ST) O = effect(“Offset”)(“Slider”) transform.xPosition=P+O

With the help of this expression, all my notes and barlines appear exactly where the null object “Current” is at the moment of their inPoint.

I tried to remove “inPoint”, “valueAtTime” from the expression, just to find out, whether it would work, but it didn’t help. I tried writing “transform.position0” instead of “xPosition”, the expression worked, but the universalizer still couldn’t do anything when coming to it.

The expression

m = comp(“The Melody”).layer(“Position”).effect(“Multiplier”)(“Slider”); p = comp(“The Melody”).layer(“Position”).effect(“Path”)(“Slider”); transform.xPosition+p*m

nearby is quite similat, but it works perfect with the script.

I don’t know, what is wrong. Please give me some advice.

The script’s author explained the problem: the problematic layers have Slider Controls named “offset”. There exist effect “Offset” in AE. So, this confuses the universalizer. I’ll rename the effects and everything will be OK :).
