playing_slot_index or fired_slot_index on group is null

April 12, 2011 | 4:33 pm

Just want to check I’m not not doing something daft here. If I observe ‘property playing_slot_index’ of a normal track I get back the index of what clip is playing. However a group track will never return anything? Is this by design?

I’m guessing it’s because you could feasibly have 2 playing clips in a group track?

It is by design. My theory is that a group track simply can’t contain any clips; thus those clips also cannot be fired. Same applies to the Master track for example.

OK thanks, I’ve managed to work around it.
