Feature Request: GSDevTools - STEP Forward/Back

Recommended Posts

I am of the considered opinion that GSDevTools is one of the best things since sliced corn-bread!

 

However ... I occasionally (and increasingly) miss the ability to manually step forwards and backwards in the timeline. I recognise that GSAP is not frame based, but in this context of stepping - I would love for it to behave as if it was. i.e. Hit the step-forward button (key) and the timeline advances +1/24 of a second.

I figure there could be a default notion of 24fps, but that could be overridden with an optional named parameter during tool creation. And maybe even an option to snap to the absolute frame during step (like snap to grid).

Glad to hear you're enjoying GSDevTools! Yeah, GSAP is resolution-independent (think of it like vectors but for time), so there aren't really "frames" per se. 

 

I appreciate the feature suggestion. It doesn't seem like something many people would use (we've never received a request like this in all the years GSDevTools has been out), but if we get a lot of requests for it we'll certainly consider it for a future release. I can see how it could be useful in some cases. Let me guess - you come from a video/film background? :)

 

Cheers!

OK  thanks - it was worth a try.  I may have to resort to a quick & dirty no-frills hack ...

 

And yes I am from a varied computing, videography and animation background.

 

Cheers
