New beta update: Timeline 3D v5.0 b2

Monday, November 10, 2014

This weekend, I released the second beta for the new Timeline 3D for OS Yosemite. Please replace the previous beta and give it a spin. I appreciate your feedback at support@beedocs.com!

Timeline 3D v5.0 b2 —

FIXED: Layout was crashing for 3D renders of large timelines
FIXED: Crashing bug when timelines were exported prior to naming document
FIXED: Movie export help text reflects current settings
IMPROVED: Timelines display sharper text and images when zoomed in 3D renders.
IMPROVED: Code signed so that you won’t get Gatekeeper warnings during first launch.

I really wish this app worked. However, it keeps crashing even after updating for OS X Yosemite. I cannot modify the date or edit easily. This app has so much promise, but I cannot buy unless it works. I am using it for middle school as a history timeline. I read your helps, but the setting dialog box to modify dating I see on my download is not the same as the dialog box shown in your helps section.

Wildiris: It is true that the help documentation on our website describes the v3 version of Timeline 3D and has not yet been updated for the latest beta release.

Please send me an e-mail at support@beedocs.com describing the date bug in as much detail as possible. Bug reports at this stage are very helpful. This b2 release contains many bug fixes reported by customers over the last few weeks.

What is the difference between this and Easy Timeline?

Blogger Adam BehringerNovember 17, 2014 7:09 AM

Kevin—Thank you for your question. Easy Timeline has been discontinued since June 2014. Timeline 3D for Yosemite has a new interface, retina display support, and many export types that Easy Timeline didn't have such as movie export, Keynote / Powerpoint export, and WebGL export. It also includes better compatibility with the iOS version.

Are exports disabled? I'm unable to export my timeline in any format. I just hear an "error" noise, and then the options window for the timeline pops up.

How do I embed the WebGL export into my HTML site? Thanks.

Blogger Adam BehringerDecember 12, 2014 9:53 AM

Ilana – First you need to export the web timeline from Timeline 3D which will create a folder of resources. You need to upload that folder to your webserver. This will result in an interactive web page of your timeline.

If you want to embed that timeline within another webpage, you can do so using iframes (a common way to embed one HTML page in another).

The width and height can be any size that fits within your design. Also, I often like to link to the full page version as well.

I am not able to post code in the comments, but I can send you some example code via email if you contact me at support@beedocs.com

Hope that helps!

Thanks for your response,Adam.
Could you please post a quick tutorial on how to upload WebGL files to a website? I've seen your iframe code in another post but what should the name of the file be?

Also, I have the feeling you're not getting the emails at support@beedocs.com because you responded immeditely to the post but not at all to the several emails I sent.

Thanks so much!

Hi Adam, I have a timeline created a year ago that I want to play in 3D on my Mac for my class. It doesn't play in the most updated version of Timeline 3D and the exporting just keeps spinning.

Adam, I am trying to run my timeline in 3D on my MacBook for my class but it does not play in the latest version of Timeline 3D. I have also tried to export it but the spinning ball has been running for a long time without resolution. What can I do?

Blogger Adam BehringerJanuary 06, 2015 9:26 AM

Wavell, Please contact me at support@beedocs.com and let me know what version of Mac OS X and what version of Timeline 3D you are running. I will do my best to help debug your issue. Thanks!

If I could wish for something it would be this:
1) I wish we could control the angle that the 3d timeline displays in because the text is unreadable except maybe for the first two events until you click on an one.

2) I wish we could add multiple timelines. It would be great to create timelines showing other timelines that relate to each other. Timelines that exist singularly create a "bubble" of time. There is no frame of reference for what's happening in the rest of the world or in other events that fall under the category of a different timeline.
