Chainage Timeline

The Chainage Timeline follows a string or path by querying another string that defines what chainage (Y-Value) the object should be at for any given time (X-Value).  It is easiest to think of a Chainage Timeline as a graph that plots X=Time v’s Y=Chainage.

Chainage timelines are useful for making objects start/stop, accelerate/decelerate, and move forwards/backwards. By combining chainage timelines with transformation string timelines, the user can make objects do some crazy sh!t.


  1. Must be a super string, with x-value as time and y-value as chainage.
  2. The coordinates 0,0 represent 0 seconds and CH00.
  3. Z-Values are not required.
