    Hi everybody!!

    I’d like to find a way to allow users to modify the moment when the animation out is played. I joined a screenshot; the yellow area is the animation out, defined by a marker (work area). Is it possible to link this work area/the end of a layer (pink arrow) to a slider ?

    I hope you will understand what I mean… ^^

    It would depend on how you have your out animation set up, but you could do something like this:

    t = Math.max(time - thisComp.layer("CTRL").effect("DURATION IN SEC")("Slider"),0);

    Thanks for your answer Dan,

    But I tried and it doesn’t work… On wich parameter do I have to tape this?

    I think I was assuming Time Remap.
