New slider behavior

Hi everyone!

I use sliders to easily select characters using time remapping, and I usually just duplicate comps and animate another character by simply changing the slider. However, since the last version I can't do this as the slider on the original composition controls every other composition. That is not good for me.

I noticed the expression itself changed since the last version, the first two lines being originally:

Code: Select all

var ctrlLayer = thisComp.layer("Character selector slider");
var connectorLayer = thisComp.layer("C | Connector");
And now it is:

Code: Select all

var ctrlLayer = comp("MAIN RIG | Copy and animate").layer("Character selector slider");
var connectorLayer = comp("MAIN RIG | Copy and animate").layer("C | Connector");
I can obviously go back and change everything manually, but is there a way to revert the way the selector is automatically rigged so that I don't have to do this every time?

That's a problem, we've changed this because there are issues when extracting controllers using

Code: Select all


I guess the best would be to revert to thisComp and detect these to automagically change it to

Code: Select all

when extracting...

I'll try that in the next update, we'll see if there are other issues we did not expect.
