    Hi everyone,

    [Warn me if I post this in the wrong forum]
    I want to build an app where I must have the following features:

    -Sound import/edit
    -Managing multiple characters (addition/deletion/keyframing their animation in timeline)
    -Characters have their individual properties (e.g name of character via UI)
    -Animation tools (keyframing, pivoting, rotating and moving objects)

    There is a very similar example of what I want to create:


    Is it possible to create such an app in Unity?
    Is it efficient to create such an app in Unity?

    Thanks in advance.

    audio import/edit might be a stretch, but everything else is yes.
    the actual mechanics might not be what they appear to be to the player, but its still a yes

    that ain't a small undertaking, at all.

    Thanks for the replies! I didn't get notification, sorry I am writing a late reply.
    Can you direct me into any libraries for creating a timeline for the user? I think I searched all of the web, but can't find any topics on this subject.

    I suspect you're going to need to create all that yourself. That type of functionality could be expected as an editor feature (see the Unity Timeline feature) or editor extension, but not something that is built into the game itself. So I'd be surprised if you found anything ready built for this.
