If we define two or more tags in the same frame range (or sharing frames), it's not easy enough to handle/select/modify them.

here's a rough idea i wanted to share:

  • the timeline widget contains tabs corresponding to different frame tags. each tab displays the same timeline but differently.
  • you start with a default tab corresponding to the animation that's gonna play when you press Enter.
  • then you select some cells on one or more layers (or frames if you're selecting from all the layers) and press F2 to create a new frame tag. this will create a new tab for that tag.
  • on each tab created this way all unrelated cells and layers are greyed out.
  • on the default tab all the cells that belong to a frame tag are (possibly) colorcoded and trying to change them causes a switch to the corresponding tab. since all the tabs display the same timeline the switch shouldn't be too disorienting.
  • ultimately as you move all separate animations into individual tabs the default tab becomes a map of your entire composite animation.

again, this is a very rough idea but i hope it makes it easier to create the kind of composite animation i described in #767.

Aa, it is quite similar to what I had suggested. @JPNK, what do you think of the mockup I made in #920?
