FRAMEHOLD FROM CURRENT FRAME
tl;dr:A useful tweak to the “FrameHold” node that set by default its “frame” knob to the current frame in the timeline.
By the time I´m writing this, probably everyone has its own version of such a simple, yet day-to-day usefull tweak of a tool. Nonetheless, a couple of weeks ago a college of mine asked me to modify the “FrameHold” node so that, whenever we create one, it gets its “first_frame” knob automatically set to the frame in the timeline it is created. This imply some people could still benefit from reading this :)
My implementation of such a thing consists of a mini function that is passed to an “addOnUserCreate” callback as callable argument whenever a “FrameHold” node is created.
important: make sure to copy this code somewhere in your meny.py file to make it work. Enjoy!
