Red Timeline

Now I know why they renamed Animation to Motion Study.  SW08Motion Study should not be confused with real animationsoftware!

The help files do not fully explain the visual cues in thetimeline:

After making a change, the previously calculated timeline turnsfrom yellow to yellow with gray bars.  I assume this means theprevious calculation has been invalidated and should berecalculated.

In certain cases, part of the time line appears red instead ofyellow.  I assume this means that there is a conflict betweenkeys such that one key or set of keys is driving a motion thatconflicts with another key or set of keys. (?)

In some(?) cases, keyed mates appear in the timeline with wide tanbars (not the thin tan bars that indicate explodes). (?)

Thanks for any feedback
