Timelines can be nested inside other timelines to create groups of elements and reusable components. Each element within a timeline inherits the properties of that timeline. For example, when a timeline container moves its x and y position, the contents it contains moves accordingly.

This sample demonstrates the effects of moving different levels of nested timelines. Click and drag the small squares to see the results.
