    Lightbulb Visibility parameter used for calculation

    I was wondering if there is a way to use a visibility parameter as a calculation value for another parameter? As in when it is visible it is calculating 1, or if it's off it's 0? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, if you have a visibility parameter called "Visible" and then have an integer/number type parameter that has a if/than formula:

    Number = if(Visible, 1, 0)

    Edit: You can also incorporate that formula as a part of a length or other parameter type
