Plz check my latest message-question: “pf, resolved. another shape color (B163A3 and FFFFFF) BUT! “Color control-Color Overlay” with blending options does not overwrite the shape color?”

I have no idea what you are talking about in that last post though, Realist. Could you make it a bit clearer. You forgot, I don’t have the advantage of having your project in front of me, like you do.

Anybody know, what is the problem? Thank you, Therealist

Looks to me like the opacity is different. The color is the same.

Or possibly that one is placed above a grey solid layer while the other is placed against a grey comp background?

In other words one is using its overlay blending mode, the other isn’t.

There are too many factors in your project that we don’t know about. But there’s nothing wrong with the expressions.

It’s about this project http://videohive.net/item/photo-slideshow-3d-ii/5596576 It was a “trending” project. The user didn’t contact me, and I’ve got the review 2 hours ago. So, I was online. What can I do? Life goes on :) I wish I could send him an email. Envato should make this possible for authors, to contact their unhappy customers.

User is probably using CS4 or below and didn’t read the description. Luckily the project has sold a lot and has a lot of good ratings. But yes – very annoying.

Without the rating system, there wouldn’t be enough stress or frustration in our lives. :-)

I just got 1 star rate to my project, and the reason was: “File cannot be opened in AE. Cant use it. Bugs” LoL

How that customer can be so stupid to said that? Now I understand you guys, those with good projects and bad reviews. I hope I will get a response from Envato, cause I just opened a ticket.

Happy sales!

I assume it’s a motion graphic file. Correct?

Or is the user using a too old version of After Effects?

Sounds like a classic user-didn’t-read-description case.

And once again, presumably the user didn’t attempt to get in touch with you. Correct?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but we see this classic pattern over and over again.

Btw, thank you very much for wasting your time to help without gaining anything for it!

You haven’t seen my invoice yet! ;-)

L = comp("Whichever Comp").layer("Whichever Layer");
tTime = L.startTime + time;
d = new Date(tTime*1000);
d.getMinutes() + ":" + d.getSeconds() + ":" + d.getMilliseconds();

How about using the start-time of the layer that contains the comp?

Don’t know if I understood correctly..

Here’s the problem:

“Time control” contains the expression. Photo1 and Photo2 have the layers that I’m trying to parent. But the compositions don’t start together so every comp starts at time zero again :/

Yeah… I’m clear about the problem. What you haven’t explained is what you’re trying to achieve.

You can sync the times of the layers inside the comps using the start times of the layers that contain those comps in your main comp. In other words, from inside Comp 2, you can look at Main Comp and say… what time does my layer start at in main comp? 3 seconds?! Cool… so I’ll set the counter to 3 seconds when my own comp time is 0. Bingo… synchronised.

Is this what you want? Before you were talking about synchronising using the durations of the preceding comps, but this is a different thing. Only if the comps are laid exactly end to end will the two methods give the same results. Using start time is more flexible.

I just want to know if this is what you intend to do before I spend time telling you how to do it. Half of being good at expressions is being able to frame what you want to do clearly and logically.

I got another “problem”.

If I make more comps the expression will get bigger and bigger..

 tTime = time + comp("Pre 1").duration + comp("Pre 2").duration + comp("Pre 3").duration (...)

So, I’m trying to make a Main composition with a “main” time layer and parent the other ones to this main one.

The problem is the same: the time need to be contiuous.

Is there a way to do this ?
