In the Timeline Bar, a track is represented as a row with an icon of the corresponding instance.

Tracks can be moved to and from track folders or the root of the timeline by dragging and dropping. A timeline can have many different tracks in its hierarchy, one for each instance added to it.

Adding Tracks

To add a track to a timeline follow any of these methods:

  • Use the Add button in the Timeline Bar toolbar to bring up a dialog from which to choose instances to add to the timeline.
  • Drag & drop instances from the Layout View into the bar.
  • Right-click some instances in the Layout View and select TimelineAdd to timeline.
