Expanding the timeline

Recommended Posts

Howdy folks.

I was wondering, is there a way to expand the timeline into something like we might find in After Effects or Motion so that we can control the timing of a node based on frame location. If I am working in Shake for example and I don't want a particular element to become visible until frame 70 let's say, I can adjust that elements location along the timeline in relation to the other image nodes. Is there a way to do the same thing in Houdini? I've been looking for a button or menu item and I may have just not found it yet. I offer the following image to clarify my inquiry. Take note of the lower left corner of the image. Thank's y' all.

are you referring to COPs?

there is Timeline view (Ctrl+2) where you can see timings of all displayed COP nodes (or all COP nodes or just time sensitive nodes)

some parameters can be tweaked directly in there, but usually you need to modify certain node's frame scope parameters in parameter editor

If you want to display a geometry node after frame 70 it's as easy as putting $FF>70 in the display parameter in the render tab.

But i'm guessing that's not exactelly what you are looking for is it?

While that wasn't my original concern I do like the tip and it will soon be included in my Houdini Notes. Thank you Rudinie.
