File Types

Jun 11, 2018

I see that Rise has a maximum side of 5GB for audio and video files. I also see videos are best in 16:9 aspect ratio. I'm seeking information in a couple areas:

1. Please list all of the file types that can be used in Rise for Audio, Video, and Images.


2. Embed: Is it possible to embed image on any screen other than "embed" selection in blocks?

Thank you!

Hi Julie!  Sounds like you've been brushing up on our best practices for using media in Rise.  

  1. We don't limit you to a list of supported file types in Rise.  We expect virtually every format of those media types to be supported.  If you run into an issue with a particular file, let us know, and we'll give you some help.
  2. Most, but not all lessons or block types will support adding images.  You'll see this option when you can add media to a section of your lesson:

Is there a specific block type or lesson that you have in mind where you'd like to add your image?  Maybe we can brainstorm about some best options for your course!

Hi Chad,

I'm unfamiliar with this Google Earth file type, but I saw this post from Jake Sparling about displaying Google Earth maps on websites.

It involves importing the Google Earth file into Google Maps and then using its share option to create an embed code.  You should then be able to use the Embed block in Rise 360 to add this map to your course.

Try it out and see if it helps!
