FREE: Spinning Plates Quiz - with animations powered by the new Jump To Time Trigger
Ever since the new Jump to Time trigger went live, I've been investigating how it can be used to repeatedly change the state of an object to animate it like a GIF, with none of the drawbacks of a GIF. (As versatile as GIFs are, they're much larger than video files and can lag behind when the rest of your slide loads.)
By a stroke of luck, Challenge No. 275 was Using Educational Animations. This demo is more 'motivational' than 'educational', but with many of us currently on lockdown, juggling working from home and childcare, it feels like we're SPINNING PLATES at the moment.
Each plate is controlled by its own layer, which loops back on itself (using the Jump To Time trigger) to repeat the state changes until each plate falls. There's also a True/False variable tracking which plates have fallen, which means those plates/animations don't appear on subsequent questions.
Can you answer all five questions on multitasking without smashing all of your plates? Be careful though - as each incorrect answer will reduce your options for the next question!
You can play the game here and I've also attached the master file to this post.
