Problem with Expression Universalizer!


#1

I can not understand what the problem is in my project.
Help Please.
I made graphic and use font Avanti. When i use Expression Universalizer I got a problem (look screen). Then I replace font to Arial. Reboot AE and nothing help.
I apply this script for the first time, maybe I’m doing something wrong?

Ben is the Script Guru, I hope he is here somewhere around, he will help you.

P.S. Did you try to pre-install your fonts? (Reboot PC)


#3

You haven’t actually explained what the problem is. Is the expression in the screenshot not getting universalized, or does the script hang / stop running? What’s actually the issue?


#4

1.I delete Avanti font.
Start script - look on the screen.

Maybe problem is the same names?I don’t know.
2.I rename Numbers effect on Color Controller layer.

3.Layer 27

Stroke color was universalized,
Fill color - not.


#5

As far as i know you are not suppose to rename any of the effects before you run the Script.
You can rename the effects after running the script.


#6

Oh, I didn’t know that.
I rename all used effects in project. If VProxy are right, it explains everything!
I made double wokr)). Not good for me.

I’m not sure to be honest, I’d get in touch with support@aescripts.com about that one. There was an issue with not being able to universalize effects with custom names, but there have been a few versions since I last used it.

Personally, whenever I link an effect slider, I give it a custom name and change what’s in the last brackets to 1… universalized! :slight_smile:

thisComp.layer(“blah”).effect(“my custom slider name”)(“Slider”);

to

thisComp.layer(“blah”).effect(“my custom slider name”)(1);

or if you’re feeling really thorough…

thisComp.layer(“blah”).effect(“my custom slider name”)(1).value;

I solved the problem!!!
My problem was in the same names.

As you can see from images I had problems with Fill & Stroke parameters

After renamed effects from this: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8431/7726408432_b2b918edff_h.jpg

I can universalize my expressions successfully!
