Saola Animate: Can you jump to a timeline label?

Problem: Title says it. I want to jump to a specific label inside a scene timeline. Is it possible?

Saola Animate version: 2.7.1

OS: Windows 10


Hi John,

Yes, it’s possible.
If the timeline in the current scene, you can use Play Timeline From action and select a timeline label to play from it.
If you want to jump to a label in the main timeline of another scene, you can use the following JavaScript:

// sceneTime option also works with other methods such as showSceneAt, showNextScene...
doc.showScene('scene name', {sceneTime: 'label name'});


Many thanks for the quick response. I’m going to try this out right now!

(Much later on…) It works, woot! Not easy to find this in the manual, so your help is much appreciated.
