Video controls - Can they trigger events?
Feb 19, 2013
Hello. I need to have video syched with elements that come up on the screen and I know this has been a common request. I understand that you cannot add trigger points to the video yet so that Storyline can trigger events based on those points in the video.
So for now what I have done is put my video on the timeline, with the elements I need to come up at certain points placed on the same timeline. This works great. The problem is that I need to control the video, thus I have the player up. If I pause the video, it pauses, BUT the timeline continues with my elements continuing to show up, thus the timeline does not pause, just the video does.
Is there a way to pause the timeline? I am assuming this would have to be triggered from the video player pause button, but I don't believe Storyline can trigger an event from that pause button in its player correct?
I could combine the elements into the video, but that would make the video heavy and just would not be a good solution.
Any thoughts or ideas greatly appreciated! Thanks.
