[WIP] Project Preview - Comet landing

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to post a preview to a personal project I've been working on. I wanted to create a storyline course where all sorts of animation was controlled by a single slider, much like how you can view a movie by skimming the timeline back and forth. After some playing around, I managed to get the first "scene" completed.  The course is going to be about the Rosetta and Philae satellites travel through space and landing on the comet. Right now it just has the rocket tacking off. But along the way I plan to have some informational captions and maybe some interactive elements along that way that will move with the scenery. The bottom slider will have indicators that show various stages and dates of the journey. When I have this completed you will be able to see the entire journey by dragging the slider to the end.

Here is the link.

@Staff - I think this could be a good addition to the community and have a section for WIPs (work in progress) projects where members can show off some stuff they are working on. 

Comments are appreciated!

Really love it Jerson! One of the most innovative examples of showing off the Storyline features that I have seen. My only suggestion would be to change the font on the sign, not sure what I don't like about it, just doesn't look right to me. Apart from that it really is awesome, looking forward to the next update!

Hey JD,

I'm still working on it. Since it is a personal project, I'm only working on it when I have some spare time. I plan on finishing up the rest of the journey up until the point it lands on the comet and adding more interactive elements I found online like videos. I might also add a fun quiz at the end to test your space knowledge. 

I do hear that this is making the rounds at some of the Articulate workshops and I plan on making a tutorial on how to do this soon.
