Hi everybody,
I'm having trouble with object constructors inside expressions. AE crashs every time I try to use one. Is there an explanation?

just a simple example:

Code: Select all

function CurveItem( A, B, C, D){
	this.A = A;
	this.B = B;
	this.C = C;
	this.D = D;
var theCurve = new CurveItem(a,b c d);
(well, I could use a simple array instead, but I'd like to understand why I can't use this method).

I just tried one (never did before) and there was no problem. I copied this expression in a position property and everything went fine:

Code: Select all

function Translation(v){this.v = v;}
Translation.prototype.pow = function(n){return new Translation (n*this.v);}
Translation.prototype["+"] = function(x)
        // x: translation or array
	if (x instanceof Translation) return new Translation (this.v+x.v);
	return x+this.v;
new Translation([60,79]).pow(5) + new Translation([-8,-10]).pow(20) + value;
Not talking about this particular exemple which is pretty idiotic all in all, constructors are probably not the best way to speed up expressions...

it must be my after effect version. It doesn't work either.

i'll try with another version some day.
Thx for the answer.
