Cards in layers

May 29, 2019

Hi - I have five cards stacked on top of each other.  When I click each card I want it to go off the screen one at a time (I have a motion path set for that).  However the cards are going all at once.  How can I fix that?

Sorry, I am not at my computer so can’t look at your story file. Do you have separate motion paths set for each card?  You will need one motion path per card.  Each motion path has a trigger. By default the trigger is set to run the motion path animation when the timeline starts. You need to change these triggers to start the  animation when the relevant card is clicked.

Hi Erin,

I took a look at your file, and the reason it's not working is because you have given the cards exit animations. If you just let the slide progress without doing anything, you'll see them sneaking off of the right side when the timeline ends! Remove the exit animations and it'll be fine.

Additionally, card 2/5 has an extra trigger to play the motion path when the timeline starts, so that's running away of its own accord. It's Probably best to delete the extra triggers on each object, as you have some duplicates :)

Hope that helps!
