Have a look at clipmarkers. They are visible in the Source Monitor as we as the Timeline.
Many thanks for your reply Ann Bens.
> Have a look at clipmarkers
Could you elaborate on this please? I'm new to PPro SDK. I'm looking at projects in "Premiere Pro CS6 r2 Win SDK\Examples\Projects" but can't find anything using clipmarkers. I've also had a quick look at "PrSDKMarkerSuite.h" but can't see anything to add markers to the timeline in the Sequence Monitor.
Does the SDK let us add these markers? Do you know a sample that does this?
Ann's right, markers are the way to go.
Yoshi, you're referencing the C++ plug-in SDK; the HTML5 panel SDK supports adding and manipulating markers. Here's the sample panel (which, conveniently, adds and manipulates markers):
Here's how to set up a panel development environment:
Feel free to ask me anything; here, if the topic is of general interest, or directly at [b b b at adobe dot com] if it's proprietary.
Thanks for the info bbb_999.
I did't know about the HTML5 panel SDK. I'm now downloading ExtendScript Toolkit and Extension Manager.
My plugin needs to be compatible with
- Premiere Pro CS6, CC and CC2014, both Windows and Mac
- After Effects CS6, CC and CC2014, both Windows and Mac
Do you know if there will be any compatibility issues by using the HTML5 panel SDK?
PPro CC (7.0) was the first that supported HTML5 panels; CS6 won't work.
After Effects CC 2014 added support for HTML5 panels, but the underlying ExtendScript API is completely different from PPro's. Again, CS6 won't work.
Tell me more about the specific workflows you'd like to support, and I can provide better guidance.
