textual cues/markers in clips

Post by rawore » Mon Nov 08, 2010 7:31 pm

thought I saw a thread about putting textual markers in clips, but now can't find it.

maybe I was just fantasizing?

using 'cue' and 'clip'

or

'cue' and 'text'

as search terms; anyone got a better search term, or remember the thread?

thanks for any help

While M4L can check and observe such cue points it cannot actually create or delete them.
Not quite true. There is a function set_or_delete_cue available in the Song class.

For a working example see this thread

thanks for the link, think that was what I remembered... forgot

or maybe not, since it started in 2008.
I'll check it, though.

Perhaps are you talking about the device I am currently developing.
