Timeline Folder

In the Timeline Bar, timeline folders are represented as a row with an icon of a folder.

These are used to organise nested timelines in a parent timeline and don't have any impact in the playback. A timeline folder can have nested timelines as well as other timeline folders. They can be moved to and from timeline folders or the root of the timeline by dragging and dropping.

It is worth noting that the only specific property of a timeline folder is the Name. Every other property in it doesn't have a direct impact on the folder itself and exists only as a convenience to make modifications in all of the items within it.

Adding Timeline Folders

Timeline folders can be added to the root of a timeline by doing any of the following:

  • Right-clicking any section of the bar which doesn't correspond to any other element of a timeline and selecting TimelineAdd subfolder.
  • Using the split menu of the Timeline Bar + toolbar button, and selecting TimelineAdd subfolder.

A timeline folder can be created as a sub folder by right-clicking another timeline folder.
