Time input for Essential Graphics
I'd like a time input in essential graphics (created in after effects). The user inputs a time value (00:00:05:10 for example) and then I reference that number from after effects expressions to trigger events.
Currently I can do that with multiple sliders (usually one for seconds and one for frames.), or do everything based on frames which becomes harder for a user to think about for numbers over 3 seconds. Having everything in one field that looks like a time input would be easier for people to work with and would significantly reduce clutter.
This isn't a replacement for allowing keyframes, but there are instances where I think it's easier for the user to do it this way than keyframe. I will often set up graphics so that the user sets transition duration and then when each element completes the animation. That way there's only one number to deal with for each animation event.
Good request, thank you.
