I’m a new user of Tumult Hype and a new visitor to this forum. I’ve run into problem with a project, and would appreciate any advice.
I’m creating a multimedia interactive for an ipad. The subject is on forests, and a have a page (or rather ‘scene’) which has a illustration of animals and plants in a forest environment. I’d like to have the client be able to pinch on the ipad screen to zoom and out, nad to swipe to go to different areas of the illustration. He/she can then tap on a particular animal, and a small pop-up box will appear providing info.
My concern is how to place the illustration. The ipad (using a ‘landscape’ orientation) is at say at a 1024 x 768 px setting.
The illustration (which is actually oriented at ‘portrait’ can be scanned to any size) , is currently scanned as 5000 x 10123 px. This can be reduced if need be.
The reason the illustration is so big is that I want the client to be able to zoom into small details in the forest scene.
How do you place an image that is larger than the Scene size in ‘Hype’? Do you have to create vertical and horizontal scroll bars to allow the viewer to access the whole illustration?
Attached is screen capture. As shown here, the illustration extends beyond the edges of the scene’s borders. Hopefully, the client can then pinch and scroll all over. But when the project is exported, the ipad doesn’t allow this. The illustration gets cut off at the borders. You can only see what’s within the 1024 x 768 px setting.
Hope this makes sense. Is there a solution?
