Motion paths - when will they be available in Storyline?

Hello folks

I find motion paths extremely useful - and am mentally struggling to imagine how I will present some of the slides that I have created in other elearning using Powerpoint and a number of motion paths on one slide.

I know that Storyline doesn't support motion paths.  I am being asked to consider whether or not my organisation purchases licenses for Storyline.  Whilst so far I am very keen on this new product, I wonder if it would make sense to simply wait a while to see what is developed in the immediate future of Storyline.  As yet I don't know if there are other features in Powerpoint which are not available in Storyline ...... it's only my first real day of exploring it.

So, does anyone out there in Articulate Development Land have any idea when this particular feature will be included?

And users of Storyline.......... do you wish you had waited a while or was it a good idea to have leapt at the product in the early days?

I think I'll vote again for motion paths. Having used Storyline for a year now, I do miss them. They were an easy and effective way to explain a concept visually.


+1. 

I'm glad and heartened that I can often work around not having them, but it would be awfully nice to have them and some emphasis animations sooner as opposed to later.

Jamie, during the beta I asked the developers  if the lack of animations was due to HTML5 limitations and we were promised that this was not the case and that they would not do that.  I think the lack of animations is mainly because these were the animations available in Quizmaker and they never received many feature requests for additional animations in quizmaker and then felt this would be sufficient for Storyline.

The developers I think were suprised when everyone in the beta would at some point ask where motion paths, or emphasis animations were.

If they did, we'd still be beta-testing and beta-testing and beta-testing . . .
