Animated PNGs

Jun 30, 2021

Hi everyone,

I have created an animated PNG (APNG) which is attached.

It works OK when I open it in a browser etc but I want to import it into Storyline.

I can do this but when I preview the movie, it is not animating and just looks  like a single PNG image.

Doesn't Storyline support animated PNGs full stop at the moment or is there some way round this?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, storyline 360 can display animated APNG.

The process is the following.

1) I started from a 3d software

2) Export PNG sequence (image1.png, image2.png, image3.png, image4.png.......)

3) Upload all the images on an online service like:

4) Configure as you desire in timing, looping, etc.

5) BUG: If the PNG is not a looping one and is just 1 sequence and stops at the end.

Hiding and showing the object won´t reset its initial state it will stop at the end and keeps that state forever. You need to give a "normal" and "disabled" state (the "disabled" state must be blank without the png). And a trigger somewhere to change from "normal" to "disabled".


Here is my example of a transparent APNG over a basic circle (storyline object):
