Slider interaction with show/hide layers on timeline start not working

Apr 19, 2023

I have a simple interaction that I've designed using a slider (on the base layer). I have layers that I would like to show/hide based on the value of the slider. The first thing on each layer are triggers to show/hide other layers based on the start of the timeline.

When Slider1 moves: show slide layer1

on layer1: when timelines starts hide layer2

Only it's not working. If I have 6 positions on my slider one for each layer, when I get to layer1, I'd like to hide all of the other layers except the one I have jumped to (think build the timeline when slider value increases; deconstruct timeline when slider value decreases). Any ideas why my triggers are not working? Also, I have 1 trigger on the start of each layer that does work on the build, but not on the deconstruct.

Hi Sarah!

Thanks for sharing your file! I was able to achieve the slider functionality you were after by adding in some extra 'Hide Layer' triggers. These added triggers hide the layers/sections of the pipeline as you move the slider back from right to left.

I've recorded a Peek to walk you through the process and attached a revised copy of your .story file with all of the layers built in.

Please let me know if you have any more questions!
