    I have a tag plugin and I want to set the objects "Visible in Editor" using keyframes.

    Here my code.
    A keyframe is set on frame 0, but the value for "Visible in Editor" is not correct (always On).
    What am I doing wrong?

    track = CTrack::Alloc(op, DescID(ID_BASEOBJECT_VISIBILITY_EDITOR, DTYPE_LONG, 0)); 
    if (track) {
       // Add track to op
       // Get track curve
       CCurve* curve = track->GetCurve();
       if (curve!=nullptr) {
          CKey* key = curve->AddKey(BaseTime(0.0));
          key->SetValue(curve, 1);		//set to Off

    I already notice some "bugs" (key was not created) putting key at BaseTime(0.0). So this may be related.

    I end up by creating a key then move his time at BaseTime(0.0)

    Actually the keyframe is set, but the Visible in Editor value is not set correctly.
    Perhaps it is because Long - Float issue.
    Visible in Editor is an integer, but SetValue() expects a Float?

    I did a test creating the keyframe at 1.0, but the result is the same (a value of 0 (On) is inserted in the key).

    to set the value of animation tracks that do not store Float values you can use SetGeData(). See the CKey Manual.

    best wishes,

    Yes, that did the trick.

    Thanks, Pim
