    FEATURE REQUEST?  Insert or Cut Time from Timeline?

    NWphotodev Level 1

      It seems this might be a feature that others find useful as well.

       

      Consider a timeline with a symbol you've already prepared.  The symbol typically takes 15 seconds to run. But you're finding that you'd like the symbol's first part to be shortened by 3 seconds yet retain all the temporal relationships w/ the other animations after that.  In effect, you'd like to "slice out" those 3 seconds from the timeline with everything else remaining the same -- except bumping any animation after the cut ahead 3seconds (i.e. shifting it 3 seconds forward).

       

      Visually it might be something like this:

       

      a------------xxxxx--------------

                                                   b------------------

                                         c--------------------

                                                 d------------------                      d----------------

                              

      Where you want to remove the "xxxxx" time from the timeline

      a--------------------------

                                             b------------------

                                    c--------------------

                                            d------------------                      d----------------

       

      This is a simplistic example, but it would be very powerful in terms of speeding up animation.

       

      Giving users a tool to "cut time" or "add time" to the timeline and have it cascade to animation after the insert or delete point would be very cool!

       

      What do you think?
