Bringing Articulate Characters into Rise
Jun 11, 2020
On a recent Rise project, I needed some images that showed people's emotions. Trying to find stock images (free or otherwise) can be challenging if you need them for a specific topic or environment. So, I opened Storyline and pulled out some characters from there.
Here are some examples of what I used:
Listen, Empathize, Document
Used in Rise example
Telling a friend about a bad experience
It's easy to add the image into Storyline, but some users forget you can crop the characters so you only see from the waist up, or as headshots.
Once you have your character set up the way you need, you can easily export/save it to your desktop and insert it as an image in Rise.
For those pictures that have 2 characters or I combined, I cropped them in Storyline, copied them to PowerPoint, grouped them together there, and saved as one image. (grouping and exporting in SL saves them individual images, grouping and exporting in PPT saves it as one image).
I could have also imported the slides as Storyline blocks into Rise.
