Video, cue points and timeline progress
I wonder if anyone can help me understand a better way to approach this? I'm trying to reproduce a slide that was created in PowerPoint where a video plays and at particular points, triggers show and hide objects.
I'm doing this using layers in Storyline. I thought cue points would be the way to trigger layer visibility at exact times, but - it seems they are on the slide timeline and independent to the video progress. So, if I allow the user to have video controls - if they pause the video (or it doesn't start automatically when the slide starts, etc etc), then the cue points and video get out of synch.
Is there a better way to do what I'm trying to do? Or tie the timeline playhead to the video playback? Or trigger events based on the video progress?!
