    Is there any way to determine what is being animated by a value track besides using the Name (e.g.: "Position.X")?

    Thanks

    Okay, got this info from the DescID DescLevels.

    How do I do the same to determine if a track is a Time Track? The DescID[0].id == -1 for this.

    Anybody? Once again, I'm on a schedule here.

    All I know is that the DescID for the track is:

    Depth = 1
    DescID[0].id = -1
    DescID[0].dtype = DTYPE_REAL

    This tells me nothing about whether or not this is a TimeTrack as compared to any other track - unless I can safely assume (never good) that id=-1 and dtype=DTYPE_REAL will always be a TimeTrack.

    Other than the default track name (which can be changed), there are no other visible or logical references to this type.

    Thanks,

    That does seem to be the only way. I've posted a question to the developers, just to be sure, but I would be pretty confident that time tracks are the only case with such a combination.

    Okay, Mikael. That's what I'll go with unless the developers have any other information.

    Thanks,

    No, the developers agreed. The following definition will be added to the API:

        
        
        #define ID_TIMETRACK -1

    Thanks, Mikael and the developers! (Is that a good band name?) ;)
