Chapter 18. Animating Layers > Working with Multiple Timelines

Working with Multiple Timelines

If you think having one timeline is fun, guess what? You can have more than one! Each timeline in a Dreamweaver document controls one animation. For more complex documents, you might want to include several animations, each triggered by a different event. To support this, Dreamweaver allows multiple timelines to be defined for each document. You might, for instance, want one animation to play when the page loads, and another to play when the user rolls over or clicks a button. You might even want one animation for each of several navigation buttons. Each timeline operates independently of the others. Two or more timelines can even be used to control the same page element (layer or image) but be triggered by different events.

Adding a Second Timeline to a Document

Every Dreamweaver document starts out with one timeline—Timeline1—already set up in the Timelines panel.
