Hi every one,

Is there a way to make the Start Point of a comp at the real in Point, as the shorchut [ does ?
I cut my Comp at a definied point in time, by the startTime move the Comp at the beginning of it, not a the inPoint, and I must make very complexe calculation to do it well.

Thanks for your help....

I don't think there's a built-in way to do the equivalent of the "[" shortcut via scripting. I'm afraid you'll have to calculate the offsets and set the start time and in points.

Why not just hit the "b" key at the point where you want the comp to begin, hit the "n" key where you want the comp to end, and just use the trim comp to work area command? No messy code to fart around with.
