Saving Multiple Timelines Inside a Movie Package

In Studiocode v10, it is possible to save multiple timelines inside a movie package. Typical use cases for this feature would be if one wanted to create discreet coding environments (e.g. timelines) so that blind coding could be executed by different coders. Then, one might create a third timeline to aggregate the individual coders into a "master" timeline of sorts.

The following steps explain how to save multiple timelines inside a movie package.

1. Open the desired movie package and select the desired rows. Any selected rows will also be visible in the new timeline.

2. Click on the New timeline icon on the timeline. This will open a second timeline and movie window on top of the first.

The name of the second timeline will have the same name as the first, but with "copy" appended to the end.

**Note: although you will see a second movie window, this does not duplicate the movie. Thus, it won't duplicate the amount of storage space on your device.

3. With the new timeline as the active window, go to File > Save, or COMMAND+s on the keyboard. The following dialogue window will appear.

4. Name the new timeline so that you can easily identify it from others, then choose Save in package. This prevents the possibility of the timeline being lost due to the fact that it's not inside the package.

If you choose Save as... and choose a different destination outside of the movie package, be aware that there is a reference relationship between the new timeline and the movie inside the movie package.
