Great work, and thanks for the help. I initially tried to do it this way, but I couldn't get the movement to be smooth enough. I tried to rely on sound and some other visuals to help out with this. You can see what I did in my story file.

It's really simple and not very flashy but I think using sound, in place of a visual movement, tricks our brain into believing movement happened.

I know this is an old post, and therefore, outdated.  However, I tried Priyanka's method in Articulate StoryLine 3, and it will only let me set the timing on each stage of the progression at .25 - no lower.  That makes for a very "choppy" progression.  Instead, I did it the really hard way.  I duplicated my SL slide background in PPT and set a Shrink animation (under the emphasis group) paid with a motion path and recorded it using Camtasia.  Then I pulled the video into SL.  The problem here is that, if I need to edit this eLearning for any reason, I will have to recreate this video.

I tried the capture using SL, but it didn't work as well as doing it with Camtasia.

SL has to have a better way to do this in SL3, right?  Any ideas?

Hi Rebekah,

In Storyline, the fastest speed for a motion path animation is .10. It sounds like this issue could stem from importing a motion path from another program. 

I used Priyanka's story file to give you a peek at changing the motion path speed. You'll also see the fasted speed is .10 and the slowest is 59 seconds.

Is there a way that you can import the project without the motion path animation and create it in Storyline. If you need help creating a motion path animation, here's a step by step support article!
