If that is correct, then it's not working for me, either in preview in browser from Edge Animate, or when published and used in a site built with Muse.
Tested with IE 9, FF 16.01, Opera 12.02 w/ JS disabled. In all cases, neither the animation nor the poster displayed.
Yes I've read the replies to Vancouver Joel's post re: "down level does not work" at
but nothing there helps.
My animation is very simple; it uses just native ellipses, text using arial fonts, nothing special.
The poster image that I selected is present when I inspect the down-level stage.
Same problem occurs with a more complex animation.
Hey wbaafs, the downlevel stage will not appear with JS disabled as it requires gathering information from the preloader.js file. However, you can manually mak your own fallback by using the noscript tag:
<div id="Stage" style="background-image:url('yourposter.jpg')">
This reminds me of aanother feature request. If the developer hac created a "down-level stage" please place the noscript code in the HTML.
