  1. Aharon, where may I find the information regarding “stepping” to the next value, example 0 to 1 and not in between? You mention at the end of the video that you were successful with Dan Ebberts to make this work. I’m also having a problem finding your “presets” for this project; where may they be found?

  2. Ditto to Greg. Can’t find the expression anywhere…my odometer won’t stoooooooop……..!

  3. Dan Ebberts just emailed me these…hooray Dan!

    // thousands
    slider = thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Slider Control”)(“Slider”);
    myDigit = Math.floor(slider/1000)%10;
    previous = slider%1000/1000;
    myVal = myDigit + linear(previous,.999,1.0,0,1);
    y = linear(myVal,0,10,1500,0);
    x = value[0];
    [x,y]

    // hundreds
    slider = thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Slider Control”)(“Slider”);
    myDigit = Math.floor(slider/100)%10;
    previous = slider%100/100;
    myVal = myDigit + linear(previous,.99,1.0,0,1);
    y = linear(myVal,0,10,1500,0);
    x = value[0];
    [x,y]

    // tens
    slider = thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Slider Control”)(“Slider”);
    myDigit = Math.floor(slider/10)%10;
    previous = slider%10/10;
    myVal = myDigit + linear(previous,.9,1.0,0,1);
    y = linear(myVal,0,10,1500,0);
    x = value[0];
    [x,y]

    // ones
    slider = thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Slider Control”)(“Slider”);
    myVal = slider%10;
    y = linear(myVal,0,10,1500,0);
    x = value[0];
    [x,y]
