    Is it possible to put markers with some text on the Timeline (as in After Effect and other audio/video editing tools)?

    That would be nice though :)

    In the meantime, do you have any suggestions as to using one of the track types as a dummy track just for adding some text to the timeline?

    You could make a clip that does nothing and assign it to a custom track with no binding. Each clip is rename-able in the inspector.

    I've attached a sample.

    Thanks! That's a cool solution!

    I have one more question. Let's say I have an NPC driven by AI (mostly NavMesh). Would it be possible to "bake" all the NPC movements, including all the animations into a Timeline track?
