Allow animation for Clip's Transport Position

Post by hepi.yellow »

The Issue
Linear-time loops are boring... 🥱
We can't add beat syncing with meaningful envelopes that can bring life and groove to video clips.

Currently a clip's transport position can not have animation.

The Solution
Add support for animating transport position.

The current BAD solution
I know you would say: "Hey but you can map the transport position to Midi/OSC", but that is not good enough.
- It requires an external app to drive the parameter animation.
- It is probably not frame-sync-perfect like if it is running inside the Arena's render loop.

Conclusion
Seems like a quick win 👍

When your clip is in BPM drive mode, Have you played with all the different Random settings for the Random play mode? This might be what you're after?

No. I am looking for more elegant curves, like exponential in-out is very good to bring some on beat oooomph!
