related issue in bitbucket
A long time ago (2 years maybe), i’ve worked with yacine sebti to make a bridge between a timeline editor in max/msp (yacine’s world) and openframeworks (my former world). The project was called Menthol. This prototype has been used in the void project.
The openframeworks addon is here: https://bitbucket.org/frankiezafe/ofxmenthol
During a 1 hour phone call with yacine, we discussed about how to build a standalone UI for the project. Several ideas where floating, such as a fully custom UI in openframeworks or a QT version, such as Iannix. This one is very good looking, even if yacine and i think that it is not precise enough for our usage.
Then, like each time we spoke about this, blender pops in.
I always liked the graph and the dope sheet panels. It’s a superb 2d simplification, with a lot of features (i just discovered the modifiers, my head is spinnin’!). I quickly draft the modifications to do on these panels to work as a standalone timeline editor.
I’ll investigate this in december!
nb: this feature is part of the polymorph engine presentation :), see here
Just saying… Not perfect… but [CTRL]+[T] give you time in seconds instead or next to the frame number (It’s unfortunately not consistent)
