By the way, chaps…. the Expressions Thread has got a few questions and a few answers now… You can see the direction it’s going in.

Is this stuff useful? Should we keep it stickied? Or is it all a bit technical for a video forum? We’re not really programmers at the end of the day.

I am more programmer then designer, so I am good with sticking it.

I think that will be better if Essential Resources for Authors is sticky, and 1st post should contains links to all important threads like this.
Thanks Ben for expressions and explanations after my post :)

The Essential Resources thread has been officially de-stickied and some of the resources moved to an official resources page for authors. The thread still exists and you can bookmark it for your own use, but it’s not going to be re-stickied unfortunately.

Here is something from a while ago. Helped me a lot. Used it again today. I’ll post it here for anyone with similar request:

Q: What if you want to link together effects in different compositions.. cc sphere for example, and you want to match ALL of their properties. Should I go one by one and link them all individually or is there a smart way that just makes two effects alike with one line of code.

How do you link all properties of an effect between compositions?

There’s an aescripts file for cloning an effect too… can’t remember the name off the top of my head though.

Here’s that code… I’ll link this to the first post when I get time…
FX1 = comp("Comp Name").layer("Layer Name").effect("Effect Name"); //layer to link to
FX1(thisProperty.propertyIndex).value; //generic property clone code

The keyword thisProperty refers to the property object that the expression is on. The propertyIndex is a property of each property object. This expression basically says – look at the effect on the layer in the other comp, and link to the property of that effect that has the same index as me.

Once you’ve created the expression for one property, just cut ‘n’ paste the same expression on to all the props…

or use right-click -> copy expression only to save you having to alt-click the stop watch every time.
