Some of my animation is not functioning as it should

Aug 01, 2014

Hi there,

I'm new to the software and have watched the tutuorials, however, I'm a bit stuck in one area. I've imported my power point, inserted the audio files and have cued the animation with the audio, however, there is animation within the text (bullet points) that have animation in the powerpoint presentation but I'm not able to distinguish where these are to cue them. They are being animated at random and they're out of sync. I viewed the tutuorials again and saw where it was talking about syncing the animations but I don't see that feature on my software. I'm wondering if that is the issue. Help!

Hi Kary and welcome to Heroes!

Are you referring to this tutorial here on how to sync animations?

If you're animating a bulleted list in a text box, that will be one item on the timeline and therefore not able to be set up with timings as indicated in that tutorial. You could separate each bullet into it's own text box and then apply the animations and ensure they match when the audio will be played. Using the cue points feature as described would help you line up the audio and text boxes to each item.
