Sometimes you just want to get the items in your view, to play with in the Script Editor.
This python, provides an easy way to get selected items for use in your Script Editor. Stores them in hiero.selectedItems. Ctrl/Cmd+Alt+C Shortcut.
By default this will return: Projects, Clips, Sequences, Bins, Tracks, TrackItems
To install, copy to: ~/.hiero/Python/Startup
The example adds a right-click Menu to the Timeline, Spreadsheet and and Bin Views for getting the current Selection.
After running this action, the selection is stored in: hiero.selectedItems , which can be used in the Script Editor.
A keyboard shortcut is also added: Ctrl/Cmd+Alt+C.
Note on activeItem behaviour in BinView
By default in the Bin, the action will return the activeItem, i.e. the Clip or Sequence, rather than the BinItem.
This behaviour can be overridden by changing this line:
kAlwaysReturnActiveItem = True
to: kAlwaysReturnActiveItem = False
or can be set dynamically in the Hiero session Editor via:
hiero.plugins.getPythonSelection.SelectedShotAction.kAlwaysReturnActiveItem = False
