Can you set the zoom feature to appear on a trigger?

Oct 20, 2015

Hi there - apologies if this is a repeat question...  

Here's what I'm doing:  I have a file folder that the user has to open up. (set up on a slider.)  I'd like to zoom in on the contents of the folder once the file is open (position 9).  

I'm looking for a trigger to say "start zooming when the state of the file folder is on 9" but I don't see that as an option.  (?)

Hi Erin,

This sounds doable. I think you'd need to play with pausing and resuming the timeline for a zoom region.

So, let's say you have your zoom region set to trigger at 10secs, you would create a trigger to pause the timeline at or just before 10secs, then resume timeline when the state of the folder changes.

If you can share an example, I can probably give better advice.

Thanks so much for your assistance, Jason! And yes, if you could share your file, Erin, it would be appreciated so community members can see how everything is set up and get a better feel for what you are hoping to accomplish! All you need to do is click on the ADD ATTACHMENT button at the bottom left of the reply box in the thread, and browse for the file from there. :)
