I always turn off the timelines and play them in code when needed. Of course sometimes you have loops in symbols so this would not apply to these.
I try to split the sound files but I am not sure it makes a difference
- Edge Animate version
Unless I have absolutely no need of jquery, I do not use the current version any more because it is too buggy in my opinion. 2014.0.1 is stable and has few bugs.
- svg versus png
It depends on what you need - I have used both separated and together in comps. I rarelly have problems with them.
I think the size of images in general would tend to cause problems if you have lots of them and they are big. I was told there is no limit but I am not so sure about it.
These are only my opinions and Adobe or other users might differ.
Hi resdesign! Thank you for the quick response! You replied to me last week and asked I send you the file which I did twice via your profile page. If you could take a look at it maybe you could tell if I am doing something wrong.
I am going to check all my symbols. They are almost all static images that I reused.
I am not using jquery at all and have version 2014.1 . How do I get the earlier version you recommended?
I did look at your file yesterday and last week too. it is hard for me to test since I do not have the images. I was not sure what comp it was because I was testing several comps from different users.
If you could send me the images folder, I could test further.
Unfortunately there is no good way to revert back to the earlier version.
Let me ask you this - is it possible to turn sections of the stage timeline into symbols? If I could break this down by selecting parts of the timeline I could work with smaller sections of the piece.
It is possible but it may mess up something. Just copy you folder and test to see if it is not causing too many problem.
Select all the elements in the elements panel and click convert to symbol. the transitions should be saved into the symbol. You might want to select the whole timeline and drag all of it the time 0.
then you can play them when needed with sym.getSymbol('name').play(0)
Thank you - I will try
Could you post the new files including the images? I am sorry I had a rough weekend with a 93 year old dementia mother to take care of and could not check out your files. Triggers should work unless there is a code or concept error.
I'm so sorry to hear about your mother - I have been through that myself and really appreciate your help. I will message you the link to my files.
Thank you - Box isn't letting me sign up. When I click the link to sign up nothing happens. Can you tell me what the problem was (and also how to get the file)?
I'll have to wait until the end of the day - I'll let you know. What changes did you make to get it to work?
Hi redesign --
I was able to download the file so please delete it. It hasn't changed for me - still plows through the timeline triggers and even a hard stop on an element, I don't understand what's going on and it's blown my deadline for this project. I'd really like to understand why it doesn't execute the simplest of instructions. Could you tell me what you did?
Could you send me a script of what you want to happen in order.
For example -
1- three buttons with the names so, so and so appear on the screen and stop.
2 - when pressing button 1 - this happens etc...
With this I might be able to control the whole animation for you.
1. The three buttons drop down in place and the timeline stops so the user can interact with them
2. Right now only button 3 has something to go to. When it's clicked, the content symbol should play (it has audio and animations)
3. When the content symbol ends (it's the Flash equivalent of a Scene), it goes to the menu label and stops (so the user doesn't have to see the buttons drop down every time)
If you could explain to me why it isn't working, that would be more helpful than anything! (Also, please delete the dropbox files)
Thank you for your help!
I will try and get it to work as you want and then I will explain all that needed to be done.
