OmniCC interraction with WeakAuras (cooldown pulse)

Hello

I've been making some cooldown icons for some of my spells using WeakAuras. Result below.


I'm using the "Cooldown" option to get the pie spin from OmniCC, how ever when the spell cooldown is gone the aura is not pulsing like OmniCC is doing with the actionbars. Is there any way to get this to work?

Thanks in advance.

I think that pulse effect only appears propery on action bar icon slots.

I see, because I've replaced gxCooldowns with these auras. The look almost identical but lack this pulse which gxCooldowns gave.

I've had auras show CC text, if they don't have the attribute so CC knows to skip, maybe this is the reason CC doesn't mod your addon?

I don't know, I'm not too good with .lua and that kind of stuff so I have no idea. I just know most things can be done with WeakAuras so thought there may be a way.

They don't need to be action buttons, but they do need to have the object returned by cooldown:GetParent() have an icon texture at either object.icon or "ObjectNameIcon" or "ObjectNameIconTexture". If your cooldown model doesn't meet those criteria, then OmniCC can't apply finish effects to it that involve the icon, such as the pulse effect.

Oh, I see. How do I implement this to the Aura?

No idea. I've never used WeakAuras. You'd probably have to modify the addon's code to change how it creates objects.

You could try Power Auras, it has built in animation effects similar to OmniCC, and the addon is just like WeakAuras.
