The Timeline is the most basic element of any video editing software. Although classical timelines have the specificity of being sequential –elements follow one another in strict order of appearance–, PlayFilm’s timeline skips this restriction. The main advantage of this special feature is that the order in which elements are arranged, as well as the presence of empty spaces –the dreaded black frames– that can remain between elements, both can be ignored. PlayFilm’s timeline enables the location of elements separated from each other but equally consecutive, which is to say, makes it possible for any of its elements to make jumps –both back and forth–, wherever they are.
As any timeline, it is organised in layers based on the type of element and respecting hierarchy –above means more visible– and it is possible to reorganise the said order at any time through a click-and-drag. It has also a timecode viewer, playback controls enabling the visualisation on the viewer and access to the Preview function.
