I would like to make an expression (for use on various layers throughout multiple comps) that triggers a main expression that's stored in one place.. (maybe this would be an expression on a layer on some unused dummy comp or as a text file, if possible).
In terms of programming this is like using an include file.
Is something like this possible? The purpose is to allow editing all the instances from one place.
This has huge implication for complex projects that rely on many layers having the same expression. In effect, it's almost like nodal expressions (sorta). No more mass copy and pasting into hundreds of layers. Now I can have many layers all referencing the same expression.
What are some of the "gotchas" of using expressions this way?
