Getting Live timeline info into M4L

    Apr 11 2013 | 7:18 pm
    I'm not sure if this is easy and I'm missing something, or it's difficult but I'm not finding any info on the subject.
    We're building a system for a show that has video slaving off of the Live set through SMPTE. Unfortunately the video system is SMPTE only, so we were putting together a quick M4L patch using the smpte~ external by Mattijs Kneppers. Great external, but we need to have the object slave off the Live timeline.
    Is there some way to feed/get the timeline info from Live into M4L somehow? I know we could just stripe a track SMPTE, which is fine and probably what we'll end up doing, but as a challenge I thought this would be a good exercise and potentially useful in the future. Many thanks!
