Change timescale of individual timelines?

Say I have 3 timelines. Can I change their timescale independantly of each other?

 

Thanks

Sure, but keep in mind that a timeline's timeScale affects its children too. For example:

var master = new TimelineLite();
var subTimeline = new TimelineLite();
...
master.add(subTimeline);
master.timeScale(0.5);
subTimeline.timeScale(0.5);
//now subTimeline would appear to play at 25% of the normal speed because its timeScale is half, and it's inside a timeline whose timeScale is also half

This is a feature, not a bug - it's a very powerful architectural advantage of the platform.

 

And again, to answer your question, yes you can control each timeline's timeScale() independently.
