Dialogue System for Unity 1.7.4 Released

Version 1.7.4 is now available on the Pixel Crushers customer download site (contact us with your Unity Asset Store invoice number if you need access) and should be on the Asset Store in 5-10 business days.

This version adds Cinemachine and Timeline Support, a bunch of nice dialogue editor enhancements, and updates to several third party support packages. The Timeline support is pretty cool because you can bind objects at runtime. So you can create, for example, a Dance timeline and assign any two characters to dance at runtime.
