Notch TOP - Timer Fraction / Length Seconds par not functional (45520)

It seems that the timer_fraction and length_seconds parameters don’t function out of Notch Blocks into info chops. Happening in both 44k and 45k experimental builds, win 10 x64.

Notch blocks don’t expose their end time (and not all blocks would have one anyway) so there isn’t a way to calculate timer_fraction or length_seconds, but we leave them in to be consistent with other operators such as the Timer CHOP.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions, @eric.b .

I suppose it could be calculated by comparing the current frame value of timer_seconds to the previous frame value, every frame, and once current_frame < previous_frame, setting length_seconds to the previous_frame value.

This is of course a rather inefficient approach, especially with Python.

I’ll send an RFE to 10-bit, it ought to be exposed if it’s available.
