Hello,
is there a way to detect a mouse click down and up anywhere in the after effects window?
Like some kind of input listener.
As far as I understand it an effect plugin is limited to the PF_Cmd commands for communication but an AEGP can register its own commands.
Is it therefore possible to write an input event handler that runs in the background through the AEGP and that can trigger a command every time I click somewhere in the after effects window?
I ask because I am not so experienced with c++ programming and plugin development, and I thought it would be a good idea to ask people with more experience, if what I am trying to do is even possible.
I am grateful for any information, thanks in advance!
