Is there any way of getting the list of currently selected BaseList2D objects within the timeline? I can see how to get postfx, om objects, tags and materials, but I can't find any mention of an accesible timeline baselist.
Ideally i'm looking for something similar to the BaseDocument::GetActiveObjects routine but.

Afai can see, the selected object in the TL is also the selected object in the OM and vice versa.

the om only supports standard objects and tags, thus, it doesn't support shaders, materials, videopost, subcomponents of those, or any other non geometry/tag NodeData's. also selected in the timeline isn't always the same as selected in the om (it's a different bit within the object).

Not that I know of anyway, you will need to just create your own function to go through the object type you are interested in and look at the BIT_AAMAN bit. AFAIK CINEMA has no cache for this bit anyway, so this would be no slower, afair it was only with R9 that the GetActiveObjects had a cache added to the document (to speed it up).

ah yes, you are right per. Haven´t thought of this at all (sometimes narrow minded :).
