Storyline as a multimedia presentation tool

Oct 11, 2013

I've been looking far and wide for examples of how Storyline has been used to deliver a multi-media presentation for clients.  I have been asked to find a way to find a platform to deliver video components and some animated graphs in a more stylish way than powerpoint.   I thought Storyline could be an option and one we could build in house.  Has anyone ever used Storyline in this way?  Or have you seen unique demos which show cool use of video?

Hi Sarah,

Are these presentations going to be interactive? If not, consider giving PowerPoint a second look. Some very glossy visuals can be composited in PowerPoint, such as pan/zooms of photos (aka, the "Ken Burns effect"), overlaying objects on videos, moving objects along a custom path, etc. You can use PowerPoint's "Create a Video" feature to output the presentation in a video format. Depending on the version of PowerPoint you have, you may have to import the video into a video converter -- or even Storyline -- to output an MP4 that can be played on iPads.

Now if you have to make the presentation interactive, then by all means, I recommend using Storyline.

I wish I could share with you some examples I have created (I have both types), but alas they're proprietary to my clients.
