Hi all, anyone got a workaround using supported or unsupported APIs to place or move a clip in a sequence using seconds or ticks instead of timecode? Working with audio files and need to place items very accurately on the timeline.
1st try: Got clip placement working but can only give times in TC ie snapped to frames
2nd try: Can set the CTI using ticks which is great, can omit a start time when placing a clip which uses the current CTI, BUT the placed clip time still snaps to frames .
3rd try: Call a Powershell script which "presses" the "," key which accurately inserts a clip to the current CTI, but can't change the track targeting programmatically so has limited use besides the obvious hackz.
PS: This is all while "Show Audio Time Units" is active for the sequence.
PPS: I've tried the alignToVideo = false option of the insert function and doesn't seem to do anything
Any help is appreciated.
Geordie, please send me a script, and the steps you're following, above.
Hi Bruce, NP I'll email you a test script as the panel project is pretty complicated.
