I would like to write a plugin to read the host time and use it to control another application.
I’m experimenting with
getPlayHead()->getCurrentPosition(posInfo); from the processBlock() callback but it doesn’t look like I’m getting any position updates when the playback is not running.
I was thinking that there must be a method to get the timeline position also if playback is not running as plugin UIs are also updated when parameters are automated and I click through the timeline.
Can anyone with more experience in plugin development maybe shed some light on this?
Thanks in advance!
