Animated GIF playback
My thanks in advance for addressing this question/concern.
I happen to create a lot of slick, smooth animated GIFs and and very disappointed in Storyline's playback of them. Not only does Storyline not recognize the playback order (loop, loop once, only play once, etc) but it doesn't respect the fps (frames per second) that the GIF is set to. I'm told that Storyline operates at 30fps, but if I put in a 30fps animated GIF and publish, I can count out 2 whole seconds before a 1 second GIF runs its course. The result is a choppy playback that doesn't adhere to the original file settings.
Some other notes:
- I've tried 15fps, 30fps, and 60fps. It's the same with each.
- I've tried playing the GIF on it's own in different browsers and they play smoothly and correctly in each.
- I've tried viewing the GIF in preview mode and published as HTML and HTML5, both with no success.
I really hope I just missing something that someone will point out to me, because if I'm not this is real shame.
