Animation - Timelines specificity is to play, cut and edit video layers easily, and to animate layers and their parameters

On the creation of a composition (CTRL+N)) you'll have the choice to create or not a main Timeline.

Here are the 3 types of animations available inside of Smode :
- Timelines : Create a main timeline on the composition (not a timeline cue)
- Function Cue : Create an Animation Bank at the root of the compo
- Cue List : Create a Cue List at the root of the compo

All of theses choices can be reverted or added after the composition creation.

There is two types of timelines inside of Smode:
- The first is the "Main Timeline" which is embedded inside a composition and work like in any classical animation software
- The second is the "Timeline Cue" , it work like a Function Cue and is placed inside an Animation Bank.
