detect an animation frame change

Post by froo »

Hey folks. I think there is a way to do this but I have forgotten.
I want to detect when the timeline increments or decrements. This happens when we play the animation,
or when we scrub through it. We have the RsAnim.time() method(s) I believe, or something similar. I don't have tS
in front of me at the moment.

Basically, if the timeline has changed, and we are at a frame I am interested in, I want to perform an activity.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

I don't know, but I can imagine a round about way to do it.

Create a custom attribute
Animate it to change at the frame you want and feed it into a change detection node.
