Synched Reference Video Player

Post by blastframe » 23 Oct 2019, 21:00

Hello,
There is a video player called Keyframe MP that syncs with the Maya animation timeline.

This is EXTREMELY useful for animation reference. It would be incredible for TVPaint to create a feature like this: a video player window that can load external video & sync with the timeline.

Thank you!

I've talked to Chris (The developer of KF) about the API, but it seems that is python only. It listens to a specific port for instructions so perhaps something on george could be written to communicate with the Keyframe MP API?

Thanks for the reply.

I have tried posting in the George forum about running scripts, but I can't find anything.

The hope was that the tv_plugin command might work, but I think that's for .dll files written in C.

If anyone knows how to run a batch or Python script from TVPaint, please let me know.

Otherwise, I think this would be a great feature for TVPaint animators that I hope the developers would consider.
