Builds and Animations

Elements can be animated in the Editor Console by selecting the Build tab in the Properties Panel.

Any element can have a build applied to it. To begin configuring an animation, select your element and then click on either BuildIn or BuildOut.

  • BuildIn - Animates element into slide canvas.
  • BuildOut - Animates element out of the slide canvas.

Then, simply change the options in the menu to set up the animations as needed.

The Build Tab contains the following options:

Build

  • Drop-down menu containing the available builds.
  • Must be selected to enable additional options.
  • Build options include:
    • Fade
    • Move
    • Rotate
    • Cartwheel
    • Blur
    • Zoom
    • Wipe
    • Glow
    • Bounce In and Out

Order

  • Drop-down menu containing available ordering options.
  • Order values are added for each additional build.
  • Changing the value of Order will change the order of all other builds.

  • Editable value to set the amount of time a build plays from beginning to end
  • Accepts decimal values between 0.0 and 5.0

Delay

  • Editable value to set the amount of time to delay between one build and the current build before beginning the animation.

  • By default, two options are available:
    • On Click
      • Animation begins on mouse click/advance.
    • Auto After Slide Transition
      • Animation begins after the slide transition completes.
  • When selecting a build that is at Order 2 or greater, a third option is made available:
    • With Previous
      • Animation begins at the same time as the previous animation.
