Working with Timeline

When a Character is added a Character Timeline will appear above the normal Timeline. Here you will see separate lines for Eye, Head, Audio and Walk Animations which make it easier to control what the Character does.

Unlike regular Objects, Character Animations appear in light blue on the Timeline and certain animations come with Freeze Zones (animations that do not automatically return the character to its initial state). The Freeze Zone appears in a lighter blue after the actual animation and continues until the end of the Timeline, unless a new animation is added or the Release icon for an animation is selected.

When selecting a new animation from the Direct Your Character Panel you will notice a red dotted-lined rectangle appear in the Timeline; this represents the duration of the animation. When you select Add, the animation will appear as an object in the Timeline and can be moved back and forth to change its start and end times.
