Sound continuation on base as layers advance

Mar 28, 2014

Hi all,

Not sure if this is doable or not, but I want to have some sound continue playing on the base layer as the other layers on the slide advance automatically.

Can this be done?  I know the settings on the layers go through visibility options, but I'm wondering if this can be achieved through a trigger and/or variable?

Thanks in advance for the guidance!

Hi Erin,

Not exactly sure what your setup is and what you need to show or not show. Also how you're implementing the automatic advance. So, to get the conversation started.

By default, audio on the base layer IS heard as other layers appear. Let's say you advance the layers by placing shapesoffstage to act as triggers.

Shape 1 is placed at the 3 second mark. A trigger attached to it shows Layer 1 when the timeline starts for Shape 1.

Shape 2 is placed at the 8 second mark. A trigger attached to it shows Layer 2 when the timeline starts for Shape 2.

No changes have been made to the Slide Layer properties.

Please shout out with any questions.

Als, if you need help on a slide and can upload it, the community can take a look.
