[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!

Can I ask if you did anything special to make the additional sliders not be selectable besides throwing an invisible shape or hotspot over them? Also, your images seem very crisp, but when I use images as slider thumbs, they are blurred until you hover over them; did you do anything special there as well?

Hi Jennifer,

The only way to not make them usable is to block them.  I wish there was an option to turn of interaction with the user. 

For the images, I didn't do anything special with them. I might have saved/exported them about 1.5 to 2 times the size I needed.  SL tends to downgrade the resolution a bit when exporting.
