View Full Version : expressions help

03-14-2004, 05:52 AM
I have set up a lighting rig using expressions and sliders (using a tutorial).

I would like to be able to change the expression to add a delay to the changes depending on the number in the name of the light.

This is what I am using at the moment


All the lights are numbered SkyLight (1) SkyLight (2) etc...

Is there any way of using this number in Frame or Time?

Also is there anywhere with a list of the operaters (Time...) and more indepth tutorials?

Thanks in advance

You cannot use the numbers in this manner... They are generated by LW and are not "unique" in a programming sense. If you want such functionality, you have to name your lights objects etc. explicitely e.g. Light_1, Light_2 etc..

Thanks for that I will give it a try.

Does any one know of any reference material for expressions?
