Step by Step slide timeline and awkward transitions

May 28, 2020

Observation and question about expected behavior of the slide timeline for step by step screen recordings:

Without making any adjustments, during playback the screen darkens between slide transitions. I assume this happens because the caption and hot-spot aren't automatically set to show until the end, and the screen recording is always placed at the end of the timeline. 

  • Where can I find best practice info. for adjusting the timeline in step-by step view or  try modes?
  • Is there a default for how standard elements appear or stay on screen?
  • Does the screen recording have to be at the end?

Hello Jerrie,

Thanks for contacting us and sharing what you are experiencing with your screen recording.

You mention that you've made no adjustments, but that the screen recording does not continue to the end of the slide timeline.

It sounds like Action Fine Tuning may be what you are looking for to adjust those frames.

With your permission, I'd like to take a look at your project file to investigate what's happening. You can share it publicly here, or send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when I'm done troubleshooting.
