In the Timeline Bar, property tracks are represented as a row with an icon of the corresponding property being affected by the track they belong to.

A property track represents the property of an instance that can be interpolated and is nested inside a parent track. Property tracks can refer to common instance properties, instance variables, effect parameters, behavior properties and plugin properties.

A track can have many property tracks in its hierarchy, one for each property of the instance the timeline will be affecting. A property track can exist at the root of a track or nested inside property track folders. They can be moved to and from property track folders or the root of the parent track by dragging and dropping. They can not be moved outside of their parent track.

Adding Property Tracks

Property tracks are added automatically when:

  • A new track is added to a timeline.
  • A keyframe for a new property is added.

To add an empty property track, right-click a track or property track folder and select Add properties.
