This view is similar to the timeline viewer in. It displays the tiers and their annotations, and each annotation corresponds to a specific time interval. Above the tiers, a timescale is displayed. During playback, a red vertical bar, the crosshair, moves through the annotations and indicates the current point in time. Furthermore, whenever you select a time interval, it will get a blue rim. The corresponding begin time, end time and duration are displayed in the media information panel.
When you select a specific chunk, three more options become available (see the left side of the timeline):
Play selection: the video display will play only the selected chunk;
Clear selection: the blue rim goes away, and so does the information about begin/end time, etc. contained in the media information panel on the right of the video display;
Create bookmark: when you select this option a new window will open where you can tick the parameters you want to bookmark, including Selected region, Current view and Selected tiers. Once you have checked the necessary parameters you select "Copy to clipboard". Then, if you open a new, blank webpage, and paste the URL created, Annex interface will open showing the previously selected chunk highlighted in blue.
In addition, again on the left of the timeline, there are further options which are peculiar to the Timeline, Waveform, and Combined modes:
and Move timeline view to the end/beginning
and Move timeline view forward/backward (fast)
and Move timeline view forward/backward (slowly)
and Zoom timeline view in/out
Thecan also be played in two different modes: 1) - the red bar moves until the end of the screen with the latter changing constantly; 2) - the red bar is still in the centre of the screen; what moves along are the annotations in the tiers.
Below the two just mentioned view modes there is the option to change the tier text font.
