Timeline overview

What is the Timeline?

The terms Timeline and Track Player both refer to the section at the bottom of the interface. The reason for using two different names to describe the same section is that they suggest different meanings; whilst Timeline conveys a sense of time, Track Player refers to the function of playing a track. Therefore both names are used synonymously within the User Guide depending on their context.

Objects within the Track Player

The Track Player is a specialised object editor used to play and edit tracks . All sequencing and Timeline information is organised into tracks. The Track Player is constructed from a series of properties explained below to make playing and editing tracks more intuitive.
