Layer Control Expression
by David Mathias
Hi and thank's to craetive cow and Abraham for all those so usefull tutorials.
(and my apology for my very approximative english)

After watching the tutorial on Expression Control Part 2, the layer control seemed to be unusefull.
In fact I saw a very interesting thread posted by the "Yoda Master of expression" Dan Ebberts, here :

and it's on Creative Cow once again !!
this could maybe help to update this tutorial, wich was for me very instructive.

All the best for 2010 !

With After Effects 6.0, Adobe has introduced some wonderful new functionality to the world of expressions. Most of this is the result of spectacular new features that have been added to After Effects that were not necessarily aimed at expressions but nonetheless dramatically increase the power available to the expression writer. There have also been a few changes and enhancements to the expression language itself.
