Thanks Dan. I still can’t ascertain how to get it to work.
So…..the expression I have in one of the precomp layers (called Character 1) linking to the slider within the main comp (called Infinity) is:
comp(“Infinity”).layer(“Head Rotation”).effect(“x Position”)(“Slider”);
I vaguely understand what the code you posted relates to but don’t fully know how to apply that. I thought I’d changed the syntax from what you’d posted to reflect my comps but get an error at line 1.
C = comp(“Infinity”);
ctrl = C.layer(“Head Rotation).effect(“x Position”)(“Slider”);
L = C.layer(thisComp.Character 1);
ctrl.valueAtTime(time + L.startTime)
I’m clearly doing something rather dumbass
