Is there a shortcut to navigate to the previous/next clip in the clip editor?

dorothi 12 months ago updated 12 months ago 2

I checked the preferences window, but I couldn't set a shortcut to select the previous or next clip.

I checked over a hundred short clips, but it felt very tiring to open the clip window and select the next clip to select the next one.

Thank you for your reading.

Hi dorothi,
thank you very much for your support request.

Switching between animation clips is currently only possible by selecting the desired animation clip from the dropdown in the clip editor. There is no shortcut like the one you requested. However, you could use the UMotion API to write a short script that jumps to to the previous or next animation clip when a certain button is pressed: https://www.soxware.com/umotion-manual/UMotionAPI.html

These are the required methods from the API:

ClipEditor.GetSelectedClipName()

ClipEditor.GetAllClipNames()

ClipEditor.SelectClip(string name)


Please let me know in case you have any follow-up questions.

Best regards,
Peter

Thank you for your reply.

With your APIs and Bing AI's assist^^;, I was able to create Next and Prev clip buttons in File.

It's still two clicks, but I find it more convenient because I don't have to go through the trouble of popping up a clip list window and finding a current clip.

Thank you.
