Delay With Slider expression for After Effects

Use a slider control to delay keyframe animations by a defined amount of seconds. It functions similarly to a marker trigger but is simpler to set up. This expression is particularly useful for creating motion graphics templates (MOGRTs) and is applied to any animatable property.
delay = thisComp.layer(“Controls”).effect(“Delay”)(1); // Pickwhip to your Delay Slider (in seconds)
