I'm a total newbie to plugin programming. I wrote a plugin for trueSpace in VC++ that copies and pastes sequences at frame numbers supplied in an array. These frame numbers come from midi music data. The upshot is that I can drive an animation from midi music like Animusic.
Anyway the time has come to do it in C4D. Problem is I can't follow the SDK docs. I want to manually select a sequence in the timeline and then press a button in my plugin and this copies and pastes the sequence. I've got all the code for the dialog box and the midi part. Any help with some examples of how to copy and paste a sequence would be greatly appreciated. I had it in trueSpace that the pasted sequences all became part of one super sequence (or clip as they were called). This is not absolutely essential but got around the problem of overlapping sequences where the note being played quickly repeated itself e.g. a guitar string is still vibrating from the last time it was played.
