Solved Timeline playing - MSG or method to get it?

Hi all,

Sorry for the dumb question, but, is there a simple way to know in Python if the timeline is playing? I would like to know its state to allows or forbid some UI changes.

I thought at first that there is a message raised when play button has been pressed, but I haven't found anything obvious.


Hi @mocoloco you can use c4d.CheckIsRunning(c4d.CHECKISRUNNING_ANIMATIONRUNNING) to query the state of the timeline. In C++ there is the method IsAnimationRunning but this is not available in Python therefore I added it, so it should be there in the next release.


Hello @m_adam,

Thanks a lot, it works like a charm!

Have a good day,
