Default Is there a way to see the video playback position when I add a new envelope point?

https://imgur.com/a/X9zdc1E

So in this video I show my problem: with the marquee selection tool I can preview the video playback (or frames) and while I draw an automation with Ctrl it doesn't.
Is there a way to preview (like with the marquee tool) the video when I create a new envelope point?

Thanks anyone!

I don't see any way it could be done unless you record an envelope through a midi signal from a control surface while in play mode.

I would recommend you do a search in the audio/general forums like "how to" etc... for a similar script because the functionality that allows this "follow-up" is not specific to video (in fact it was developped for audio initially). Good luck!

This would be a cool function can't say I know about anything that does it. Maybe there is something on Reapack.

Food for thought: if you find way to update the cursor position to follow the mouse position when drawing your envelope, that should do the trick.
