background image


This section of the Appearance pane in Motion Preferences lets you choose how to display
the bars that appear in the Timeline to represent your objects.

Timebar Display:

A pop-up menu with three options for Timeline display:

Name: The bars in the Timeline display the object name only.

Name Plus Thumbnail: This setting is the default. Bars in the Timeline display an icon

representing the first frame of the object followed by the name of the object.

Filmstrip: Bars in the Timeline are displayed as a continuous strip of frames. The name

text does not appear. Only layers (shapes, images, image sequences, text, and so on)
display a thumbnail or a continuous strip of frames. Objects such as cameras, lights,
and behaviors do not display a thumbnail.
