Hi there,

I'm new to Harmony and I have a question that really bothers me and I couldn't find an answer to it yet.
Let's say I have an eyeblink of 4 drawings that I need to repeat throughout the scene. Is there a way that I can put the drawings of my original blink in something like a container so when I edit the timing of the blink (hold frames longer or adding inbetweens) this will automatically update any other "container" on my timeline. It is something similar to "Smart Objects" in Photoshop and "Pre-Compositions" in After Effects and I'm sure this is commonly used so I hope this is easily solved.

Thanks a lot.
Marsen
