RGTV Ep. 26: Score! Working with Numeric Text

In this episode of Red Giant TV, Aharon Rabinowitz gives you some cool tips for working with numeric text, for things like video game scores and other digital readouts. No 3rd Party Plug-ins are used in this tutorial – Just straight After Effects.

This tutorial uses 2 powerful expressions. Here they are:

1. Round to the nearest whole number:

s = thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Slider Control”)(“Slider”);
Math.round(s)

2. Layer marker triggers addition to current value:

s = effect(“Slider Control”)(“Slider”);
n = 0;
if (marker.numKeys > 0){
n = marker.nearestKey(time).index;
if (marker.key(n).time > time){
n–;
}
}
s + n
