    Hi all,

    Can anyone tell me the string to convert from say 1-10 of a slider value into degrees of rotation (i.e : 0 – 360). 1 being one full rotation, 2 being 2 rotations etc…

    I’m not sure if i’m understanding you’r question…So you are trying to convert the slider’s values so that 1 on the slider is 360 degrees? If so you should just pick whip the rotation value to the slider and then add * 360 on the end.

    Hi Colin,

    THanks for pointing out the obvious…. Sometimes I make things more complicated than they need be..

    I guess you can’t use the “angle” expression control?

    Can’t you just right click the slider numbers (then select > edit Value, from the drop down)in the Effect Control Window (F3) and change the slider range to 0-360? Is that what you want?

    My mistake. I’m with Steve Roberts, check out the “Angle Control” instead of slider.
