Is there a way to tell animate a specific time/frame number to create a frame? I'm trying to create a base layer that is several minutes long and I cannot find a way to do it that doesn't invlove scrolling 20 seconds at a time in the timeline. Any help is appreciated!

The easiest way is to use a JSFL script.
Save the following code within your Command\ folder as "CreateFrame.jsfl"

var tml = fl.getDocumentDOM().getTimeline();
var frame = prompt( "Enter Frame Number:", "" );

if( frame ){
    frame = parseInt( frame );
	if( frame > 0 ){
		tml.insertFrames( 1, true, frame );
	}else{
		alert( "Invalid frame number" );
	}
}

 

 

Open your file and execute the command CreateFrame:
Commands > CreateFrame.

If you have multiple frames selected in the timeline when you press F5, it inserts that many frames. So you could manually insert frames 10, 50, 100 or more at once. And you can hold F5 down for auto repeat. Basically it should only take a few seconds to create a minutes-long empty timeline.
