New to Edge and I'm trying to create an interactive video, where the video pauses and a question comes on screen and then the user has a choice of two answers. On the right answer the video resumes after a few seconds and then pauses again when the next question comes up.
I've got it working how I want it in a certain way, but my video is pausing and the questions coming onscreen based on the timeline, I want them triggered based on the videos actual timestamp. I have the questions as a symbol and I want the video to pause at a specific point then the questions load.
basically at the moment if I load up the page the questions will come on screen after the same duration has passed, whether the video has started or not. Plus the video pause marker doesn't seem absolute in terms of the videos actual timestamp.
Can the videos actual timestamp trigger events?
Hopefully that all made some sense!
I ended up just cutting the video and creating a symbol of each video and got it working that way. Putting a pause maker in the video timeline doesn't equate to the videos timestamp, so the video pause location is basically bandwidth dependent.....as far as I can see....
The downside of cutting the videos is that it's currently pre-loading all video files before it starts. Being able to work off of the videos timestamp would be much more useful!
This tutorial is maybe helpful:
I am making an interactive video myself by the way. If you are interested in sharing experiences or something feel free to PM me.
this is great, thanks so much!
I'll have a read and send you a pm if I get stuck.
