Hi there, I am trying to do this exact thing but was trying to do a state change from one pose to another when a caption bubble appears.  But when I go to the NextBubble State change, I don't have access to the Animation buttons to try a quick fade in....so wondering if states works as right now it is very jumpy from one to the other.  but thinking if I have to put the character on the timeline twice as Carol mentioned to get it to work.  Janice you mentioned you had attached something but I do not see it. Would you mind sharing?  Thanks

I recall seeing a post about applying the animation and then copying and pasting into the state. Somehow that attaches the fade to the state change: https://community.articulate.com/discussions/articulate-storyline/fade-animation-on-change-of-state

But the thread is quite old, so I'm not sure if it still applies to this current version of Storyline. Haven't had a chance to test this.

Hello Adrienne!

We don't have an update to share on this bug as our team is currently prioritizing other bug fixes. We'll update you in this discussion when this fix makes it on our roadmap. In the meantime, I'd encourage you to connect with a Support Engineer to take a look at your file and see if we can suggest a workaround!

One other solution to this is using GSAP. As its build into Storyline and Articulate uses it for all its animations internally...well it works great. Here you see a sample of it.
To hide and or show...well thats easy... i added a button to toggle and change the time of the duration. If you just need the fade you can get rid of some variables.
Adding the Storyline file.

Hi all!

I am happy to report that we are not seeing this behavior in Storyline 360 (Build 3.49.24347.0):

  • Illustrated Character flicker/flashes when changing expression.

If you're still running into this snag, make sure you're using the latest version of Storyline 360.

Don't hesitate to reach out to us in this discussion or in a support case if you have additional questions!
