The Creative Timeline

This article discusses how to use the Creative Timeline feature.

The Creative Timeline

The Timeline is where the timing of various creative components are set.  To access the Timeline, from Edit mode select the Timeline from the drop-down menu in the 'Lightbox' mode of the Addroid builder.

Once in the Timeline view, you can set the timing for four separate components:

  • Unmute Button
  • Mute Button
  • PNG Overlay
  • Hotspots (Video)

The four components above can be set distinctly for the initial video as well as the optional interaction video.  To toggle between the initial and interaction videos, use the drop-down menu at the top:

The Timeline is a click-to-drag interface that allows you to set the start and exit timing for all components.  Simply click on the blue bars and drag the timing to the desired position:

If you need to hide an object while you adjust another, simply click on the eye icon to toggle visibility.  Note this will not remove the layer from the ad, it only hides the layer while adjusting timing.
