Hi folks!

I wan't to know if it's possible to get a list of all timeline markers. I only found this in the SDK:

_<_dt id="c4d.s.getfirstmarker"_>_ c4d.documents.GetFirstMarker( doc )
The first marker is nice, but I need to get to all of them. Any thoughts & ideas?

Hi TechnoFeather,

You have to use the GetNext() method to go through the list of markers in a loop.

Pseudocode:

  
Marker = c4d.documents.GetFirstMarker(doc)  
  
while Marker:  
  
Call marker related methods  
  
Marker = Marker.GetNext()  
  
end of loop  

Let me know if you need more help.

Here's a working script that prints all marker names to the console:

Since Donovan gave a more elaborate answer than I did, and this topic has been dormant for quite some time, I will close it as solved.
