I knew editing videos for the past 6 years would pay off on something important some day. I understood all that at an almost instinctual level.

Can you move tracks? Copy/paste?

Think of each track as a timeline, and the line is how bent the hinge is at that point in time. So as time goes on a graph like this /\ will start with the hinge closed, open it full halfway down the timeline, then close it again.

Keyframes allow you to sync other hinges so you can time two (or more) different ones to be open, closed, or anything you want, all at the exact same time.

The track editor looks like more we’d ever dare to hope for. Does it integrate with action groups as well? I can see how the inclusion of staging would make for complicated Saturn-V style launch tower sequences.

Oh, editor outside of VAB too. Nice!

Can you also edit action/axis keys outside of VAB as well?

No, that's not possible at the moment. He already have it in the feedback list.

Keyframe based editor? Thats nice and allows for great flexibility...

Does this only work on the new robotic parts or also on existing parts with animations/actions?

You can place multiple controllers, that's for sure. And there's already YouTube videos as the review ban is up it looks like. In the few videos I've seen, there's quite a few parts. Theres 12 in the  video and probably room for a lot more.
