Not sure what's causing this, but when I apply the repeater effect to a layer, the repetitions seem to fade in one by one which is not what I want. I don't want the repetitions to fade in and I don't understand why the Repeater effect is doing that. Is there any way to prevent this fade in and if not, can anyone recommend a repeater plugin for After Effects? Thanks very much in advance.

Quantize the number of copies to full increments with a simple Math.floor(value) expression.

Hi Mylenium,  I just got it working this way. Was that the right way to do it?

The number of copy should always be a whole number. Millennium hit it right on the head.
