multiple motion paths with just two paging controls

May 07, 2015

I'm trying to move a zoomed in diagram in four directions (up, down, left, right) to reveal nodes. I only want to use two controls (a "forward" and a "back" button) to control the motion paths. I'm using relative motion paths.

When the user clicks the forward button the first time, the diagram moves to the right. Then I have a trigger to "show" an invisible shape on top of the same button when the first animation ends. Then another trigger when the user clicks that shape to move the diagram along the second motion path, etc. I want the "back button" to simply reverse the previous path.

Is there an easier way to do this?

So only one button instead of one for each direction?

I made one that works in each direction, but it sounds like thats not quite what you're looking for? I included it as an attachment anywho though :P

Maybe you could use variables? I put together another project using variables to move the image left and right like what you described in the OP. Is that one closer to what you were thinking of? The .story file for this one is V2, and you can edit the variables to have the image move up or down as well, but I only built it for left and right so far.
