Need help with expressions linking number value to color

Postby jmejia on 03/26/2015, 12:01 pm

I want to control the transition completion of a Card Wipe effect to a color value of another layer.

I'm trying to recreate this effect (https://youtu.be/arBjZc1NJwg?t=7s) where the background is made up of individual squares that rotate at different times.

My thought process was to animate a gradient range from black to white and have the "Transition completion percentage value read the black as 0 and the white as 100.

I hope this makes sense. Can anyone suggest what that expression needs to look like. ?

Thank you.

You could use a precomp to drive Card Dance to do something similar.
