Expression with Checkbox control
by Roger Eaton
Chad,

Since the checkbox control returns a 1 or a 0, why not use an expression of thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Checkbox Control")("Checkbox")*100 for the opacity. Then, when the checkbox is off, 0*100=0, and on...1*100=100. For the inverse, you could just do 100-thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Checkbox Control")("Checkbox")*100, so when the checkbox it off, 100-0*100=100, and on...100-1*100=0.

Sink or Swim in Hollywood:Editor William Boodell & Sharknado

When editor William (Bill) Boodell came to LA, he didn't expect to ever be associated with a shark tornado -- I mean, who is? And now Sharknado (the first one), is a part of mainstream pop culture even a year later and his best known work to date. If you talk to Bill for five minutes, you'll discover that he's a film connoisseur with a near-concerning catalog of directors, editors, and filmmaking theory in his head, and an up-and-coming editor with a unique post-film path to Hollywood that anyone can learn from.

Building the Storm for Into the Storm

If you're going to build the storm for a movie called Into The Storm, you better be on top of your game -- especially if it's an unprecedented mile-wide monster of a tornado.

The Five OTHER Peter O'Toole Movies That Thou Must See

Peter O'Toole (August 2, 1932 - December 14, 2013) is most remembered for his supernova performance in Lawrence of Arabia, but in fact some of his most highly-regarded, even Oscar-nominated, performances are all but forgotten in the praise of that one. Here are five more movies to set the record straight: there was nobody else like Peter O'Toole, and there won't be again.

Shooting Trent & Isabella: Blackmagic Firmware & Indie Film

Paul Del Vecchio is a filmmaker with an independent spirit. When he had the chance to beta test Blackmagic's new firmware on the Cinema Camera while serving as director of photography on the indie film "Trent & Isabella," he found that the new debayer process became a huge asset to getting the raw-like images he wanted without the price of storage and processing. Less time and money spent there means more focus on the film's visual style which ranges from spaghetti western to film noir.
