Web Objects keeping video with transparency

Jul 29, 2015


I am working on a project that will be incorporating many video files.

The video would be of a spokesperson whom would be shot in front of a chroma key screen, I would then process that video taking out the background, saving it to a file with a transparency in hopes of bringing that video into Articulate Storyline 2 via a Web Object. This would would greatly reduce the file size of the Storyline file because it is pulling the video in from a web server.

The question is can video with transparency keep there transparency when being pulled into the storyline project via Web Object?

Hi Tom! If the video is on a website and is simply being shared as a web object, I would imagine this would work just fine.

We support FLV Alpha Channel Transparency in added videos as well. There was an issue in earlier builds of Storyline where alpha channel transparency wasn't working as expected in published courses. This issue was corrected in Update 5 for Storyline. 

If you have something you would like us to take a look at, let us know.

If someone in the community has some experience hopefully they will chime in to assist.
