Creating Triggers from Movie Player Position
I am attempting to trigger a scene from the movie player position field. Currently I am using the comparator tool, however if I do not enter an integer to compare to it will not trigger. Since many of these are special effects, I would like to be able to trigger @ say "4.235" rather than "4". Is there a more precise and yet still simple way I should be looking at?Mike

Hello,Its important in comparator not to use = but <= or >=. With equal you are not sure to reach the precise number with all the rounding.

And in a future version we will have Timecode, so this kind of thing will become much, much easier :-)
I'm hoping there will be a timecode trigger actor to go with that.
Years ago, I had done these user actors with the precious help of Mark.
I don't know if they are still accurate with new version but if you want to try..
With TimeCode Trigger by example:
You have to give the actor the N° of the movie you are playing, his framerate and connect the output position of the movie player to the position input of the actor.
