Start/Stop Animation through API

api

Hi,

would it be possible to start/stop animations through the viewer API? For that matter setting the playback speed and setting the playback position would also be great.

This, combined with the current capability to control the camera position and create camera animations (http://forum.sketchfab.com/t/exporting-3ds-max-camera-animation-to-sketchfab-work-in-progress/1271/4?u=klaasnienhuis) could lead to fantastic animated manuals or step-by-step installation guides.

Yes It will. Should be available soon for testing.

Hi, even having the API stop() method reset the animation to the beginning would be useful until there's more complete animation control with the API.
At the moment calling stop() and start() picks up the animation from where it was stopped, to me this was slightly unexpected.
