    $\begingroup$ Can't you just keyframe the thickness value of the modifier?! (Or disable/enable the modifier with keyframes entirely.) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Glad it helps. I'll post this as an answer then. Btw, you can animate the camera and screen icons by hovering with the mouse over them and pressing I. You can animate almost anything in Blender. :) Even checkboxes. $\endgroup$
