Animations...not linked to timeline?

Apr 11, 2019

Is there way to make animations occur that isn't linked to a timeline?

For instance, if I want an object to spin each time the mouse hovers or that possible?

Hi Jeni,

What you can do is:

1. Make a copy of the object.

2. Animate the copy how you want

3. Paste the animated version into the hover state of the original

(Remember to delete the original button/object in the hover state).

Maybe adding animations to states should be a feature? I've used this technique to do slow fades and other effects on objects.

I have added a storyline file so you can see the effect, hope this helps you out in some way.
