Hi there, I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but if you press the spacebar, the timeline will start playing from its current position, same as pressing the "play" icon at the left of the timeline. If you press "Enter" after that, the playhead will snap back to it's previous position.
You can also set a region between the playhead and the pin and play only that segment.
sorry.. i mean previewing in a browser from a certain point on the timeline.
i have a lot of actions/triggers that won't show up unless i preview in a browser..
Gotcha. Sure, you can add this line to Stage.compositionReady, to play from whatever time you want (time is in milliseconds):
sym.play(5000);// move playhead to 5 seconds and play
mm.. i guess that's one way to do it.
i was hoping for a hidden hot-key function. like cmd+shift+return or something.. haha.
seeing that i have to continuously check multiple spots on the timeline changing the script can get old very quickly..
i guess we can't have it all..
