Edge problems

Jun 27, 2012 6:37 AM

Hi all

 

I have an animation I made in edge - which works in Safari, Firefox and Chrome

 

I have published to a folder named HTMLResources which resides in the stack I'm using it in.

 

Inside my HTMLResources folder I have

 

Name_edge.js

Name_edgeAction.js

Name_edgePreload.js

Name.html

 

a folder called

 

edge_includes

 

and my images folder

 

 

So this all works a treat right?

 

Except when I use the web content overlay - nothing happens!? I link it to the HTML file, and have tried literally every option I can think of, my folio is PDF set at 2048x1536 from a 1024 source doc

 

I have a poster image, and transparency turned ON; user interaction turned OFF

 

I have built serveral folios to make sure, rebuilt the animation 3 times, just to make sure - exported countless times, just to make sure... but alas I cannot figure it out

 

one resolve is, when I made a completely blank page and added the animation, I loaded it up on the ipad and there was the little web loading icon, then it disappeared and nothing happened -

 

Honestly guys, I'm stumped.

 

I'm running V20 Tools with v21 builder panel, on V21 Viewer iPad 3 inDesign cs5..

 

Please help I'm loosing the will!

 

Tim

    The HTMLResources file is only for shared assets, not the index.html file. If you're creating an HTML article, put the HTML file in its own folder along with non-shared assets and import the article.

    Same issue. Put the index.html file and its assets in its own folder, and create a Web Content overlay that points to the .html file. Don't use the HTMLResources folder for Web Content overlays unless you really need to make calls to share resources.

    Did you select the overlay frame and use the Overlays panel to set it to Auto Play with a small (0.125) delay?

     

    If so, it's possible that you created HTML content that doesn't work in DPS.

    Hi,

     

    at this moment I just wanted to post a question for the same problem. 

     

    For me it looks that there is a problem when the html5 files are in a folder deep in the folders structure of the hard disk.

    If I copy the folder created by Edge (or a folder created with Wallaby) to my desktop and than choose the xxx.html in Web Content panel all works fine in DPS.

     

    Is there a restriction to the characters used in the name of the folders? I am from Germany and we use many characters which are not standard (like ä ü etc.)

     

    Best

    Much easier process in InDesign CS6, FWIW.

     

     

     

    Just place the Edge OAM package file.

    Have you considered Creative Cloud?

    Single Edition apps are planned but not available yet. Sometime this year is all I’m hearing.

    @ tiim.hughes

     

    I am working with CS6 and placed the Edge OAM package file - like Bob suggested.

    No more problems.

    You need both to set the stage background in Edge to transparent and choose transparent in Web content panel in ID.

    For me it works. Even with objects which fade to transparent.

    Yes, I forgot this in my answer. I used a transparent png too.
