Timeline Notes not transferring to Split Clips

Post by D.T. Nethery » 13 Sep 2018, 15:06

Working with a friend on his animatic (he's new to TVPaint and I'm coaching him on using it) .

His first version of the animatic had the entire film (3.5 minutes) all in one Clip , 5040 frames .

He scrubbed through the soundtrack (a song) frame by frame and carefully marked off the major beats and made timing notes in the Timeline Notes area . This process took many hours .

I told him he should split up the single long clip into individual scene Clips . So he did that .

BUT now the Timeline Notes are not in sync with the portion of the Clips that they should be part of ... Each Clip (regardless of clip length) has the Timeline Notes starting from Frame 1, so the Notes did not get split up along with the Clips .

To me this is a bug. Can TVPaint Developers please confirm this is not the intended behavior for Timeline Notes when splitting up a long scene into clips ? Can it be fixed ?
