Maya Timeslider Markers

Hi everyone!

I’m looking for a way to add timeslider markers. I need them to work like the bookmarks in 2020, but run in 2019.

Does anyone know of a workaround for this, or the Python/MEL code which could help?

Thanks in advance!

Think animbot does have that feature. Take a look.

I did this just a few weeks ago by using pyside to draw directly onto the timeline.

The hardest part was to find how to properly draw at the right place in terms of frames and pixel width but theres an example somewhere on the net on a github on how to do this exactly. Unfortunately Im on my phone so I cant find it let me know if you have trouble finding it.

Anyhow I think thats how animbot does it, find the timeslider widget and then do whatever you want with it. If you have some knowledge of pyside and widgets it shouldn’t be too hard.
