Over the years, I have made several complex animations within PowerPoint itself. But I want to use Animate instead to create interactive animations that can be imported and used on a slide, rather than being limited by the tools within PowerPoint. So, here's the question. If I make an interactive animation within Adobe Animate, can I use that animation without web access? I'm basically trying to put a mini-website with all the elements on a local drive so there's no need to actually connect to the internet. Sort-of like an interactive gif with trigger points or something like that. Hopefully that makes sense.
I definitely don't want to use Flash because I want these to be usable in the future (long after Flash is gone) and I also REALLY want to avoid the super-annoying pop-up about blocked content due to Active-X content in explorer. Thoughts?
you can use animate pro to create html5 interactive applications and you can create air applications that bundle the air runtime.
Will these applications/runtimes import onto a slide? If so, will a mouse-click on the application trigger the next part of the animation? If I can do those things, then that should solve my problem nicely.
i don't know enough about power point to answer that. you should probably check power point experts if you want to use power point.
the purpose of my comment was to ensure future-proofing your animations. using power point doesn't future proof anything.
