Can't add additional properties to Slider (Connector panel greyed out)

Post by Drifter TV » Wed Apr 08, 2020 1:41 pm

Hi,

I Can't add any additional properties to my headturn slider anymore. All the sliders i use to control the headrig are placed in a head-rig Pre-comp that is placed in a character rig comp.In this Comp i extracted the sliders from the headrig. When i select the slider in the headrig the Connector Panel does not respond and is greyed out.It does so also in the character rig, It should show the slider so i can connect properties to it. Do i have to (de)stract or (un)stract (if that is a word) the sliders first in the character comp to modify slider connections? and if so how do you undo the extraction of sliders?


questions, questions,....any help is most appreciated! :)

That looks like a bug, I'll have a look at that.

In the meantime, to add new "children" to an existing slider, you can just c/c the expression from an already connected property, it should work well.

I can't reproduce the bug, could you send me a project file?
Are you using expressions or master properties for the extraction?

Can you test with the latest version of Ae too, which should be 17.0.6
