Unity’s Timeline: Activation Track

Hello all!

Today, I will be going over activation tracks in Timeline!

Look at the activation track for the sphere

What Does an Activation Track Do?

All an activation track does is make the object its tied to active or not active. When there is no active clip in the track, the object is turned off. When Timeline is playing the active clip, the object becomes active again. And, when the animation ends, the object will stay in its current state.

A good use for this would be flickering lights. You can insert short active clips over and over again to give a room scary feels!
