Working with Timeline objects
To save any animations to the Timeline, simply select the Add icon in the Direct Your Character Panel. Once you have created or selected an animation you will see a Red Bar outline after the Red Playhead in the Timeline, this shows you the duration of the animation before you save it to the Timeline.
The Red Bar indicates an animation's duration, it appears when you create or select an animation in the Direct Your Character Panel (e.g. after you create a head movement, the Red Bar appears in the Timeline before you save the animation to the Timeline).
- Freeze Zone
A Freeze Zone is the light blue bar between animations. This occurs when you create an animation where the character does not revert back to its original stance, during the Freeze Zone a character will remain in the end position of the last animation it performed (e.g. head turned to the left) until a new animation occurs, or the Release icon (eyes, head) or the Idle icon (point, pose) is selected. If no new animation is created, the Freeze Zone will continue until the end of the Timeline.
