Video frame animation tip
Today, Tom Kuhlmann shared a great tip during the webinar: Easy Pro Tips for Animating Content in Storyline 2, I had never considered before.
- He exported a video to frame-by-frame shots.
- Tom then imported the frames and created an object with different states from those frames (10 frames of a vid would have 10 unique states that could be switched in the object)
- Creating a slider interaction, he then produced a control: when users change slider position, it scrummed through each unique state (frame) in the object.
This opened my eyes to some interesting applications for this technique.
The first which immediately came to my mind was resuing videos that we've recorded to demonstrate a more complex process. What an effective way to break the video down to frames with precision controls to add callouts, information and more to give it more instruction, context, support information, breakdown, etc...
For me, this was the standout takeaway from this morning's webinar. As always, the webinar was filled with many gems, but this one just opened my mind to a new approach).
Anyone else importing frame by frame video for animation or other uses?
