Timeline object

SmartBuilder v3 or v4?

Please note that this is the help site for SmartBuilder version 3.

The SmartBuilder version 4 Documentation and Video Tutorials can be found in the Help menu in the tool, or view the v4 Help site.

The Timeline object  allows a user to organize and control the appearance of objects over time.  It can be used to control the showing and hiding of objects in relation to a timeline or to an audio file.  It also controls animations and transition effects associated with the showing and hiding of objects.

The Timeline is considered a master object, which means that it takes control of other objects.  It can only control objects located in the same peer group as the timeline.  For example, if the timeline object is within a display, it can only control objects also in that display.

User tip: Double click the Timeline object on the Authoring Stage to view its properties for editing.
