    Using expression controls in animation presets...

    Peter J Kovacs Level 2

      I have several animation presets that contain expressions with expression control sliders. When I apply the animation preset to a layer, it adds the expressions controls to the effects panel like normal and everything works fine.

       

      However, if I add another animation preset to the same layer it just adds a duplicate set of expression controls (with a number 2 added to the name) instead of just overwriting the existing ones. I realize the preset detected a duplicate name which is why the 2 was added... but the actual expression wasn't updated to use the new expression control name. So basically, the expression still references the original name and completely ignores the duplicate set of expression controls that was created.

       

      So does anybody know a way to get an animation preset to overwrite or update existing expression controls that use the same name?
