I have a shoot animation which contains 15 Keyframes, and a reload that contains 70 keyframes. When I set the keyframe amount to 70 and go to the shoot animation, then change the number of keyframes to 15, only 15 keyframes show up when I go back into the reload animation.

Shoot with only 15 key frames , but showing 70 frames allowed.

Reload with 70 Keyframes.

The frame range set on Timeline is for global output range by default. However, if you want to have a alternative preview for certain duration, you may consider to click the Use Preview Range button on the Timeline header.

When enabling it, you can set an alternative preview range by setting Start / End value on the header, instead of changing the global output range.

    $\begingroup$ It is Useful. An ideal solution for this would if each action could have it's own start and end for easier loop previewing between actions but i don't think this is possible is it? $\endgroup$
