Video in Storyline Scene

Dec 02, 2013

I have imported a video in a Storyline scene and I have PowerPoint graphics as well.  Is there a way for the video to play when the PowerPoint graphic flashes up and plays but only hear the audio portion and not see the actual video?

Hi Tina

Do you want the video to be played at some other time in the slide?  Or do you just want the audio?  If the latter, you could extract the audio as there are many tools for that or hold the video off-screen.

Have uploaded a little demo:

  1. Basic image appears after 1 sec
  2. Video loads at the same time but is hidden behind a shape, therefore giving the illusion of just the sound playing

Does this help?

Thank you Simon and Ashley, yes Simon, that was very helpful.  It's someone speaking and I want to keep the audio while I show some visuals but not have the video portion of the recording showing at the same time.  And I do want the video and audio to come back once the ppt visuals are done.  Thanks for the demo!
