Audio Expressions in After Effects!

Are you an After Effects nerd? Do you often work in large projects and constantly have issues with audio not lining up after timing adjustments? Then look no further! Behold: an After Effects tutorial using expressions to synch-up audio across different pre-comps.

Behold; the code of a thousand truths:

compStartTimeInParent = comp("_________").layer(thisComp.name).startTime;
audioStartTimeInParent = comp("_________").layer(thisLayer.name).startTime;
fullStartTime = this.startTime;
fullEndTime = this.source.duration+startTime;

linear(time, fullStartTime, fullEndTime, fullStartTime+compStartTimeInParent-audioStartTimeInParent, fullEndTime+compStartTimeInParent-audioStartTimeInParent)
