is anyone else having an issue using text presets bought on the internet? the ones I have worked perfect on cc18 but not in cc19. When I go to apply them in 19 I get message saying there is an "expression error"

"After effects warning : expression disabled

error at line 1 in property "amount of later 1 (friends) in comp 'silver and gold'

syntaxError: invalid or unexpected token

any one  any solutions or know what that means?

It is probably punctuation in the expressions. Extended Script was pretty forgiving. There is a possible solution. Try changing the expression engine in the Project Settings>Expressions tab from JavaScript to Legacy Extended Script. You can find Project Settings at the bottom of the File menu.

100% .... when copy and pasting code off the web the inverted comma's were switched to opening and closing ones, great for a word processor, not so good for the code engine. Thanks for pointing this out, perhaps Adobe could consider a parser for items pasted into code fields.

+1 for Rick's suggestion.

Read Tim Kurkoski's post here for more information: https://www.reddit.com/r/AfterEffects/comments/9uzu0z/tip_solution_to_3rd_party_script_expression/

Thanks,

If you have not found help until now, maybe this would do,

Go to File > Scripts |>

Click on Update Legacy Expression.jsx

A little dialog box should open,

Simply click on Update

 

Choose Yes to all warnings

That's all, the expression errors should be corrected.
