View Full Version : Realtime (Not Timeline) Expression Feedback in Layout

Is there an option setting somewhere that will dynamically update the display of items in Layout without having to "scrub" the timeline? For example, I have set an expression for the scale of multiple items to proportionally change depending on the value of another item's channel. But this only seems to work after scrubbing the timeline. I would like to see this dynamic update in realtime with the playback head remaining fixed on frame 0.

Expressions should work interactively... maybe something in there got broken too...

Anyway, turn on Studio Live, it'll make all these things work interactively, though will slowdown layout.

Thanks! The Studio Live option worked just fine.

For interactivity, historically (I dont know, but doubt recent versions have changed anything) and architecturally, the best way to enter your expressions is via a motion modifier and in lscript notation - and the worst way is as a (native) channel modifier in bracket notation.
