Returns the value from the siTimeControlExtrapolationType enum that corresponds to how a clip contributes to the animation before the frames on which it is defined.

On the Time Control property editor, this appears on the Extrapolation tab under Before as the Type parameter. The value of this property determines what kind of value will be considered for the ExtrapolationBeforeValue. For example, if ExtrapolationBeforeType is set to 2 ('Cycle'), then the ExtrapolationBeforeValue will read from the 'Cycles' parameter.
