    Fellow Timeline Komrades,

    Unity Timeline is super awesome and very convenient in the editor. I have the following use case:

    1. Create timeline in unity's editor, during runtime, be able to edit activation timing for various tracks using scripting.
    2. Create timeline, tracks and nofifications in runtime.

    Is any of the above possible during runtime? Or what is possible at runtime besides being to playback the timeline.

    Cheers

    What do you mean by "in unity's editor" exactly?

    Do you want the timeline editor window to be used in a built-version of the game?
    That will be very hard to do because these parts of the editor can not be compiled into the game. But you could build your own UI and basically call all the necessary functions to create and modify timelines I guess, which is a lot to do if you need all the features.

    If I create my own UI would it be possible to create and modify the timeline?

    98% sure yes, judging from a very quick look the api needed is not in an editor namespace therefore is should be possible.
