Timeline viewer background

PostTue Mar 20, 2018 12:56 pm

Is it possible to change the timeline viewer's background color or have an outline to know where the edges of the frames are?

I looked in the manual, but came up empty handed.

Thanks in advance!

It is not though I have seen it requested multiple times. If you move everything in your sequence up a layer you can put a generator on V1 and get a similar functionality.

There's an option under User>UI Settings to Use gray background in viewers.

Sometimes a Checkerboard with an alpha channel is needed :-(

Archaic, but it works I guess :)
