What was the shortcut key to copying the Slider Control with different values? (at 8:30 in the video)

I'm using a Mac btw.

Also, I should add that there should be no space between the Greater Than (or Lesser Than) symbol and the Equal symbol.

Hi Harry,

It should work if you enter the following;

Eq = value + wiggle (8,70)
if (Eq >= 136) Eq = !value+100
if (Eq <= 0) Eq = !value + 5
Eq

Basically, the greater than or lesser than symbol has to appear before the equals symbol. Also, your second "if" on line 3 was capitalised. Once those two things are corrected it should work.

Hope that helps,

Matt

“Before I forget: don’t wear any underwear.”

Before coming to Creative COW, before his lives in product marketing and product management at Avid and Boris FX, Creative COW Editor-in-Chief Tim Wilson ran a video production company. As we also observe the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the US Parks Service, Tim recalls one one especially memorable adventure to Everglades National Park, wherein he found himself quite literally up to his armpits in alligators. He had no idea that this was going to happen when the day began. At the time, he was focused on a brand new fear: getting sliced in half by burning underwear.
