There is no reason why there should be an extra "transform.scale" after you've declared the variables. This makes no sense. Rather than blindly following tutorials you may want to start by actually reading the online help on expression basics to avoid such unnecessary issues.

Thanks for your help and your unecessary patronization. I'm not trying to have a thorough understanding of After Effects at this stage, just trying to get one quick effect and I'm out.

I agree.  That is the most condesending answer.  Either answer the question or don't.  Stop making people feel bad for try to learning something.

ALSO, Adobe automatically adds the transform.scale using the pickwip.  So it's not your fault.

There's a few judgemental people on this forum who constantly like to bash on new After effects users for not knowing something because they themselves do.. It's so stupid
