    Please, I really want it. Been waiting since last year.

    Is it at least in the roadmap hidden somewhere?

    Yes it is. Likely 19.1 or 19.2.

    Track Layers on custom tracks (i.e. SupportChildTracks) has landed and will be in 2019.3.

    Finally got some time to actually try this in 2019.3, and looking at the AnimationTrack again was enough to get the hang of it. Only problem I had with it now was the fact that the MenuEntryAttribute (which is used to create entries in a Track's contextual menu) is marked internal. Is there a particular reason for this? I'd really like to use it in a similar fashion to the AnimationTrack's "Create Override Clip".

    I know this is not exactly related to this topic's original question, but it seemed close enough, given it was a direct extension of my train of thought into using childtracks/Track Layers.

    EDIT: Actually, TrackAction itself is internal. Makes more sense, I guess. Kind of changes the question again to: are there plans for when it should be available?

    Exposing actions is on the plan, but I don't know when it will be available.

    Thanks for the quick response. Would be nice to have it for consistency with what's already there, but I can definitely live without it for now.
