    I am trying to do a simple linear move starting from inPoint over the duration of the layer. Worked perfectly on first layer I put it on but other layers are starting before their inPoint. Anyone help me understand why?

    transition = 60; // transition time in frames
    tSecs = transition / ( 1 / thisComp.frameDuration); // convert to seconds
    linear(time, inPoint, inPoint + tSecs, 0, -200)

    It works for me. Which property are using this expression with?

    I wanted to keep it simple to trouble shoot, so it is just on a slider control. if I duplicate the layer it works fine. If I copy the slider control to new layer, it starts 2 seconds earlier than inpoint of that new layer.

    if I jsut read the value that inPoint provides, it is off by 2 seconds from the start of that layer. The layer is a precomp and I am sure it is some type of bug or something I am overlooking with the precomp. I will try on a new comp layer when I get some time, but thanks for your help as always to assure I am not crazy
