Storyline experiment - Smooth dynamic animations. Thoughts? How would you use it? (Now with .Story files)

Jan 30, 2017

Hey everyone - I started to experiment with some animations in Storyline that are a bit more dynamic and have a smoother motion. 

You can see it in action here! 

Thoughts? How would you use this?

I wanted the animations to have a nice ease from one state to another. I used a simple javascript tween/ease class to do this.

I also rigged this up to an animation I created using states so I could animated to different points in the animation. I will post this when it is ready to show another use.

Thanks to Nejc Žorga Dulmin for giving me the sliding menu background idea.

Hi Marcos,

If the examples were created with Storyline 3 or Storyline 360 they can't be converted back into a Storyline 2 file. Sorry that you won't be able to open those. If you still want to take a look at how they're built, you could always start a trial Articulate 360 here to test it out in Storyline 360.

We use greensock quite often to accomplish certain motions that Storyline does not have natively. There are a couple tradeoffs in some accessibility functions, but otherwise it helps our shows have their own style and polish. A key feature I would throw out there is to place the GSAP (Greensock) com folder in the Master slide. That way you do not need address that step on individual screens. Fare forward fellow Storyliners!
