Hi Conner,

I'm sorry, I'm not aware of any means to achieve this. I will ask our developement, but don't want to raise hopes.

Hi Conner,

I received feedback from development.
Unfortunately no good news, there's no way to show single tracks in the timeline.
For objects you could use this in C++ (unfortunately the message is not supported by Python, yet) :

BaseSceneHook* const hook = doc->FindSceneHook(100004808); // BaseSceneHook from Newman
AtomArray arr;
if (hook)
  hook->Message(EVMSG_SHOWIN_TL, &arr);

Edit: Added note on C++ code and EVMSG_SHOWIN_TL currently not usable in PYthon.

Hey Andreas,


tried in python and crash ..

doc = c4d.documents.GetActiveDocument()
            hook = doc.FindSceneHook(100004808);
            arr = node
            if (hook) :
                hook.Message(c4d.EVMSG_SHOWIN_TL, arr)

It won't work from Python unless its specifically supported by the SDK. 😐

So sorry, by the time I received the answer from development I had totally forgotten, that we are on the Python side, here.
My fault!
And Niklas is right, this message would need to be supported by the Python SDK, but it isn't, yet.
