getting Timeline Layer start frame

Post by sandraZetta » Wed Nov 07, 2018 7:37 pm

Any ideas on how to get the time of the start of a layer from the Timeline panel in PS?

If I have a layer in the timeline that starts at some arbitrary frame, I'd like to figure out a way to get photoshop to return what frame that is. I’ve been digging through descriptors, and just can’t find it. I did see this great trick on the Photoshop Scripting forum that helps https://forums.adobe.com/message/10437097#10437097 but unfortunately its slow as it means stepping through each frame to check for enabled transforms.

Any ideas out there on how to get a photoshop to return timeline data specific for a selected layer?
Layer timeline start point, Timeline end point, layer Duration, anything really....

Posting this question in a few places, as I've been stumped by this one, and seeing if some of you clever folks out there had any thoughts.
