I have had a continuing challenge with animations created in Edge and placed into an Adobe DPS document. Short animations that are intended to play when the viewer gets to the page (onload) are already finished playing when the page is viewed. Other CSS3 and jquery based animations load as expected only when the page is navigated to and "in view".
I was excited for the latest Edge release and CS6 hoping that this issue had been resolved, but it is still happening for me.
Has this been resolved? Using an event handler or not checking "Autoplay" and requiring user interaction to initiate the animation are not the effect I want.
Did you find a resolution to this?
I also posted this question to the Edge forum...
Yes, set it to autoplay and the delay to 0.125 seconds for now. I'm working with the Edge team to ensure we have a better solution in place via the Publish feature in Edge before they launch with the first official release.
I don't recall mentioning onLoad, but since you mention it...
Edge triggers auto-play animations off the onLoad event right now. In DPS publications the correct event to trigger on is onAppear. We're working with the Edge team to make sure that when you publish for DPS the auto-play animations look for the right event.
Thank you for your feedback and help!
I implemented Bob and Neil's suggestion and that worked perfectly.
Alistair - that is a good question, I did not try to build in a trigger event in my Edge animation. I should clarify, I mentioned "onLoad" just to describe the behavior I was hoping for.
I love Edge and DPS - so excited for all of the new possibilities ahead.
