New Timeline Objects
My graduate student Alexander Schubert and I have developed a jsui-based timeline replacement. It works in conjunction with a bpatcher which contains a coll object that all events are written to. The timeline object itself acts as a visual editor for the coll messages. This object was created for those of you that still miss the old timeline object.
We would still add a few more features, but the object already does what it was designed for and runs stably.
You can download it from http://www.alexanderschubert.net/downloads/Timeline.zip.
We appreciate your feedback.
great work, great project, generous sharing, many many thanks…
I really like your timeline object. Thanks.
How hard would it be to implement a function that would bump all events forward a certain amount beyond a certain time?
For example, I have 35 events stored before 30 seconds and 75 events stored after 30 seconds and I want to move all 75 events after 30 seconds forward by 2 seconds.
many thanks for the timeline object, that saves me a lot of time!
There is a minor thing if you add an event in the timeline with the mousecursor, it sends the index to store for coll (= timevalue) as a float from the js-file first, so there is always this error in the maxwindow: "coll: bad arguments for message ‘list’"
I got rid of that with a combination of "route list", unjoin, int + join between the "route dump" and the coll in the left of the bp-file:

To use this wonderful object with windows, i substituted the "scrollbar"-object (since it doesn’t seem to work with win) with a normal slider with the correct values, had to fiddle a bit with the sizing stuff, but works as well!
