transparent GIFs in Storyline

Nov 29, 2012

Are transparent GIF files supported in Storyline? The GIF's transparent area is filled with black when I preview and publish (I have tested multiple GIF files). Transparent PNGs are not an option, as this is for a client that has a sizeable percentage of staff still using IE 6.

Transparent PNG's will still be transparent on publish in the Flash based output. The HTML5 output wouldn't be viewable on IE6 I'd recommend transparent PNG's.

The background (edges) color of your GIF depends on how the GIF is exported. You can probably make it a different color in the software you use to generate the GIF.
