Poor performance / Publishing for CD

I am having some performance issues when publishing Storyline 360 projects using the CD option (executable). 

Launching the course via "Launch_Story.exe" results in very poor performance. For example, slide transitions take well over 10 seconds to complete. Animations are extremely slow and choppy. This issue is not present using Preview, or if I launch story.html or story_html5.html in a browser window from the same export folder. 

Publishing using the CD option is still very critical for us. 

The issue is not present in projects published in CD format using Storyline 2.

Storyline (Storyline 360) v.3.23.17480.0

Hey Tom,

We'd love to take a closer look at the trouble you're seeing. But first, let's get you on the latest update of Storyline 360, which is Update 24. Here's how you can install the latest update.

If you're still seeing sluggish behavior after updating, we can take a look at your project file to investigate what's happening. We'll delete it when we're done troubleshooting.

If that works for you, you can upload your file privately to our support team here. We'll give it a test and let you know what we find!

Hi James,

I do not see a similar issue reported for Storyline 3, so I have no update.

Are you seeing an issue across projects when using Storyline 3 or just a particular one?

With your permission, I'd like you to share your project file with our support engineers to investigate what's happening. You can share it privately by uploading it here. It will be deleted when troubleshooting is complete.
