Hi, I'm new to Unity and Spine, still learning both, but I wanted to play around with some of the examples that Spine comes with to help me learn, but every time I try to add the timeline extension to the project it gives me an error about invalid dependencies and I have no idea what thats about. is it a safe error that can be ignored or is that not supposed to be happening?

also this is sort of maybe related, but the documentation on the Unity packages isn't really all that clear for a newcomer. for the timeline extension for example it has two different downloads and I thought I needed both of them but when I try to unpack both of them into the same folder the second one will just try to overwrite the first, and I have no idea what the difference between the two are. any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

oh and in case it needs to be mentioned Im using the latest version of everything (but not spine 4.1 beta), and my Unity version is 2020.3.26f1 lts.

---

After playing around for a while I found that it all still works perfectly fine regardless of the errors. so I guess it worked out. Im just confused why my import had an error but it didnt in the tutorial video for installing them.

We are sorry for the confusion.

The two package are not to be used at the same time and unpacked on top of each other. If that were necessary we would provide everything in a single package pre-arranged, not two separate packages. The first Timeline UPM package "for spine-unity unitypackage" is to be used when you have installed spine-unity via a unitypackage (the default), the second package "for spine-unity UPM" is to be used instead when you are not using the spine-unity unitypackage, but instead have installed the whole spine-unity runtime from git UPM packages using the Unity Package Manager.

We have updated the download page with added remarks below each of the two Timeline UPM packages. Please let us know if it is clearer now or if it's still confusing.

yeah that looks a lot more clear now. thanks for that.
also I tried to leave a reply earlier saying that everything does indeed work for me, regardless of error messages, but for some reason that reply never got sent.
