  • 1.  Xpression API: Get selected take items

    Wondering if I can select multiple take items in the sequencer and get that list via the api.  Is that possible?

    Hi Doug,

    What are you trying to do with the list of take items? I don't know of a way to detect multiple selections in the sequencer at once via API (xpSequencer.getFocusedTakeItem will only return a single result, and there's no xpTakeItem.isSelected to check for). But if you're just looking to get a list of items out of the sequencer for a font coord or something like that, File (Sequencer) > Take Item List > Export To... will give you the option to save your selection as a .txt or .csv file that simply contains take item numbers and names rather than the usual take XML.
