Too many Storyline 360 Master layers slows down viewing experience
Just a comment...
I was really hoping 360 would improve the 'delivery' of 'slide layers on the master layer' online. It makes sense creating layers on the 'master layer' in development but when viewed online (360 Review); the more layers, the slower the delivery for each and every slide. I would have thought there would be a way to buffer/import the master's layers into memory when the presentation kicks off and then only the new info on each 'top-level' slide is imported on the fly.
My original Master layer, had 40 slide layers with a 10-15 sec wait between slides online (e.g. a number of case studies that participants work through during a whole module; may also have an index, help, resources etc... I realise that is too many layers).
When I cut it down to 14 master slide layers there's about a 3-4 second wait. Not bad but I can't have all the resources I'd like on hand for the user.
A lot of positives about Storyline though (plus the 360 Review component, excellent)
