OSC Timeline Playhead Position

Discussion in 'Lasershow Designer BEYOND' started by Chris Petridis, Jul 22, 2019.

  1. Hi Guys,

    Just wondering how I can control the playhead position in the timeline using OSC?

    I'd like to use this to trigger different parts of the timeline.

    Did you already try:

    PlayListSetTime 0
  3. Hi Bob,

    I haven't tried this no. Where can I find this command documented?

    I will try this out tomorrow.

    Most easiest way to find commands is like this:

    In the Pangoscript editor, open the tab command list.
    And use the search to get the function. (In this case its time, so I am searching for time)

    Then double click to insert the command in the editor. (At the same time you will notice that the "help Tab" at the bottom, will jump to the description of the command).

  5. Hi Bob,

    I believe I do not have access to the Pangoscript editor due to only have an Essentials license? It does not appear in any menus.

    Ahh sorry, I was in the assumption that you where using Advanced or higher.

    In essentials the script editor is not available, and OSC control of the timeline nether.
  7. Is there a way to control anything on the timeline with this version? Can I advance markers or anything?

    Im afraid this is not possible without the advanced scripting options.

    Im afraid that your request require you to upgrade BEYOND to advanced or higher.
