Interactive background

Hi,

I'm totally new to Articulate and am trying to understand how it all works. Does anyone knows how to create an interactive background? Let me explain the idea.

I want to show a key map in which a car drives along the route. At particular points, the car stops and some information appears (with a marker and a trigger). My question, is it possible to create a moving image (the car in this case) on a stable background?

Ideas anyone? Alternatieve ideas are also welcome.

Many thanks!

Hi Tamara and welcome to the Heroes Community.

I am thinking you may need to do this in PPT 2010 using Motion Paths, and then save as video/.WMV and import, in some way...

Not entirely clear on what you are trying to achieve, but if needs to use Motion Paths between 2 points then will need to go outside SL.

Once again a warm welcome.

Tamara...

If you have PowerPoint 2010 - here is the biggest hidden secret.

  • Open it.
  • Go to File > New > Sample templates - and choose "Five Rules".
  • Play it using "Slideshow > From Beginning"
  • Then see what PowerPoint animation can REALLY do! 
  • AND then look at the entire source file to see how Nancy did it.

Imagine - you have that ability - then to create a video from it, then bring that into Storyline.

Unlimited power.
