Retreive all your assets from Storyline 2 file in 4 easy steps.

Dec 18, 2014

I was really amazed that this even worked.  I was so excited about this that I rushed to post this on my blog (so excuse any mistakes please).  All you have to do is rename a .Story file to a .zip file and you can have instant access to ALL (yes ALL) of the graphics, sounds and videos used in the course development.  To read a little more check out my blog post.

I just tried this with a file that had a screen recording in it. One slide had the entire screen recording inserted as video. That was extracted as a .mpeg video file. Several slides had the video inserted as a step-by-step view mode slides.  The screen recording was extracted as parts as a .flv file and a lot of thumbnail images.

This is great news, Jerson! It's very similar to a technique I found that lets you extract embedded assets (audio, video, images) from native PowerPoint files to make them standalone desktop files. I know that this works on the Mac, but I haven't tried the technique in Windows.

You temporarily give the PowerPoint file a .zip extension, which causes the OS to decompress the file for you. My understanding is that all OpenXML (and OpenDocument) files are simply zip archives with defined file layouts. Perhaps that's the reason this technique also works for Storyline productions.
