Layers + Zoom Region

Oct 04, 2017

Hi you guys,

It's me again. My base layer has audio and a zoom region.

I'm trying to time objects and animations to a second piece of audio on a second layer but whenever I play the audio, it plays the base layer's animations and objects including the zoom region closeup which is the opposite of helpful. Even when I hide all objects on the base layer, the strange zoom action still happens.

What am I missing here? Thanks!

Hi Colin!

What version of Storyline are you using when you experience this behavior? 

Are you saying that you experience a zoom area on your slide layer as well? We do have a similar sounding issue reported internally. Let me know if that's what you're seeing as well, so that I can add this thread to the report as we track user impact.

The workaround being to use separate slides instead of layers.

I'm having the same issue. I cannot share my file due to NDA, however I noticed the "carried over" zoom from the base layer does not appear in the preview of that layer, only when it's played from the timeline. I'll know if the issue persists once the file is published, and having my fingers crossed that it renders correctly!
