Are 'independent' layers possible?

Hi All - Using FM4, loving it. Now, I want to ad a ‘fly in’ title via an animated layer that appears and then disappears BEFORE the main slide moves to next. Is there any way to establish a separate timing (shorter) to second layer – than main layer? Or must they always be ‘locked together’ on same timing length? Many thanks!

Using the “Visibility” option in the options sidebar you can adjust the individual timing of each layer separately. I made you a short video explaining the concept:
Please let me know if that helps.

Excellent! Ok, I have it working - thanks so much, man.
