SOLVED Modifying timeline marker's attributes

Hello all,

C4D's Python SDK has method c4d.documents.AddMarker(), which only allows you to enter the marker's name and time position. What about other marker attributes, such as length, color, note etc.: is it possible to modify them after the new marker has been created?

With kind regards,

AddMarker() returns a BaseList2D object. The timeline marker settings are just parameters of this object, that can be set like any other parameter.

now = doc.GetTime()
marker = c4d.documents.AddMarker(doc, None ,now, "New Marker")
marker[c4d.TLMARKER_TEXT] = "test text"

See tlmarker.h File Reference

Thanks PluginStudent, that was a lot easier than I thought!

And to add on top of @PluginStudent, there is an example in which define the time.

Note to know each parameter you can also use the console as described in Python Console - Drag and Drop


Thanks for the drag'n'drop tip Maxime, that feature is extremely useful!
