View Full Version : Compose and expressions

10 October 2005, 12:24 AM
I am having trouble using expressions like [Null:xpos@NOW-2] with compose, it allways returns 0 if Null has only compose motion. If there is only NOW in expression but not NOW-2 it returns proper values. I am guessing that if the time is offseted that messiah looks for that value in objects keyframes, since they are all 0 because the object is only moved by compose clip it returns 0. Is there a way to get a correct channel value from a compose using offset time (NOW-offset) ?


This is how you can recreate this and see for yourself.

create null
do some simple animation on x axis
go to compose->tracks and select cut
go to command
new variable
enter [Null:xpos@NOW-2]
and check debug to see return values
it is allways zero :sad:
