Animation Effects Storyline Entrance/Exits and States
On my TO Do list, Jeanette's 7 easy ways to emphasize text:
Very nice, thanks Jeanette!
Decided to try all in SL. Aside from the fact that there are few animations available (and of course no annotations), these pretty much worked.
Entrance and Exits: PPT vs. Storyline
My question: the two in the story I've uploaded have entrance AND exit animations. In PowerPoint/Presenter, you can control/delay the entrance and exits (Animation Pane, click item in list. For example, I might choose the exit to be after previous, duration 1.00, delay, 2.00.
Is there any equivalent in Storyline? I believe the speed settings are equivalent to the durations in PPT, albeit with less granular control. But I don't see any delay settings.
The only way I could think of to work around this (to gain more control) was to create a duplicate of the object and position both at the exact same location. So if you look at the 2nd slide (Pointing Hand 2 Objects Entrance/Exit)
1. The first hand object flies in
2. The duplicate hand object flies out, but I stretched it along on the time line so it stays onscreen longer
3. the "fly in hand" stays on the screen for a bit while the "fly out hand is there, but fades out "fast" to make it as unnoticeable as possible
Is there a better way to do this?
Animations for Character States
When a character's state changes, e.g., from happy to sad, I'd like the transition to be more subtle than what I"m currently getting. When I get into "Edit state" mode, it appears I CAN apply an animation (a fade for example), and it appears that it "takes." But in fact it doesn't take. There is no animation when I preview. Is there a way to get this to work? Or should this be a feature request?
