I'm trying to edit videos for my dance group. What I'd like to be able to do is have an overlay that I can set the B.P.M (beats per minute) and I can display a simple metronome + counter over the video.
I notice that there is a text effect in the VSE
Is there any way to hook a callback based on the frame count that can change the text as the video progresses? This might be able to get me what I need.
I've discovered that I can do
import bpy def my_handler(scene): print("Frame Change", scene.frame_current) bpy.app.handlers.frame_change_pre.append(my_handler)
and the current frame count is output to the console. Now I would need to calculate and inject some text into the VSE
First real attempt
import bpy def my_handler(scene): print("Frame Change", scene.frame_current) ob = bpy.data.objects['TimeCode'] ob['Text']=scene.frame_current bpy.app.handlers.frame_change_pre.append(my_handler)
where I have a text effect added to the VSE and defined as
but I get console errors as
File "C:\Users\bradp\OneDrive\Video\NewStyle C\choreo1.blend\Counter", line 7, in my_handler KeyError: 'bpy_prop_collection[key]: key "TimeCode" not found'
