Animated walking gif character

Hi. Been doing some tests for an "easier" way to animate characters in storyline. Here's a link to a walking character gif that is animated on a motion tween.

The pink rectangle in the lower-right corner of the animated gif is an unresolved bug in Storyline.

I added the .story file as an attachment.

Wow is that it? Its done in another program (eg flash or other in adobe suite). Storyline is not good at animating. eg try creating a bird flapping its wings, then place it on a path. Nope: cant be done. Because its based on powerpoint tech and powerpoint cant do that either. Oh how I miss Flash.

Hi Maria,

That first example was created in Flash. See post above. 

I just created a new example. http://www.dgsdesigns.com/Storyline/walking/2/story_html5.html

This was created by taking the 8 transparent .png images of the man walking that I found online and creating a transparent gif using this nifty online program: http://gifmaker.org/

I then imported that animated gif into Storyline and applied a motion tween to make the man walk down the sidewalk. The animation is a little choppy, though will post an updated version again soon!
