I have been going nut for the past 24hrs trying to create an image sequence that would be confined to a specific shape such as a triangle. Once running it on adobe content viewer on the iPad as I slide my finger across and the image sequence becomes its original shape "square", can anybody help with this issue?
I created a folder with images in a numbered sequence, the images are .jpg's and are a standard rectangular shape.
In indesign I then create a triangle frame, which I apply the image sequence to. At first appearance it sits nicely within the triangle frame but once I run through it on the iPad it looks fine until I try using the sequence then it returns to its original shape.
What would you suggest I do?
AFAIK, the shape of the container frame is irrelevant. The sequence will be rectangular.
You can try masking it by putting a two state MSO above it in the shape of a triangle but I’ve never tried that for an image sequence so I can’t guarantee it will work.
You certainly did something wrong. I've just tried it and it works!
On the background, I placed an images sequence in a rectangular block
Above, three grouped blocks to mask parts of the sequence. Group turned in MSO.
Hope it's helpful (and clear)
I believe this is the correct way to accomplish this, Christophe. For more on this, @luke_patton, I would take a look at Bob Bringhurst's DPS Tips App, under the advanced overlays section..
