So, as many other companies have and are doing...we are looking into purchasing a new authoring tool. We currently have Articulate Studio '09, which I have grown to like more than I even realized. Because now that I have started researching, most of the programs I have tested come up wanting.
Two of the biggest issue for me with Storyline:
- Very limited animation...are there really only 5 or so? How are people handling animation because I know I used zoom, motion paths, etc. in Publisher a lot.
- Animation timing...is there no way to se the exact seconds it takes something to fade in or fly out? In my demo I only found fast, slow, medium type settings.
But I love the Articulate community and the ease and helpfulness they provide. Still, no matter how helpful people are, if the porgram can't do what I'm wanting...
That said, the other programs we are looking at have road-blocks and issues too. Anyway, I thought I'd throw out some of my questions on here and see what responses I got.
So, for current Storyline users...how do you feel. I've read enough forum posts to know people think the timeline is great and the software is relatively easy to use. But I want to make cool presentations. How are you doing that? What are some of the biggest tips you might have before purchasing or to consider in purchasing?
