Playhead Position Information?

Post by Grumpster »

Hello all! I work in broadcast and I'm wondering if its possible find the playhead position information for a specific clip or layer, possibly through osc? My goal is to generate timecode data based the amount of time remaining on a clip and feed that to a slave clock in the studio so that everyone on the team has a countdown of a triggered clip. Any thoughts on how I can accomplish this? Also sorry in advance if this question isn't in the right place. Cheers!

If you're up for some coding, you could listen for the clip (layer) position OSC messages, query clip and composition speed, and calculate the remaining clip time based on the timing of the clip position messages.

Can give quite an accurate estimate on how long the clip will play. ... letimeline
