I have produced several galleries where I can make 30-40 pictures slide across the screen, from right to left as one motion event, no problem.
Have read the documentation on relative timelines dozens of times, apparently just not getting it.
This one in at least 10 iterations, experimenting using various forum examples and well over 40 hours of labor has beaten me. Can’t get the spacing to match the timeline actions.
I know it needs to be linear as opposed to Ease In Out, but it will not change no matter how many times I set it. Thats another issue.
This particular file originated as a file downloaded from the Forum, unfortunately I no longer have a copy of the original. My original plan was to modify that file, putting my images in and resizing.
I remember it also had thumbnails which I eliminated since they did not match what I am looking for. Possibly they were what actually was supposed to control this sliding gallery?
I have looked at probably a half dozen forum galleries but they are all done using different methods of timeline event organization so I can’t say that I learned anything.
I am thinking there is something very basic that I am missing, but my brain is fried. Going to be working on this one for 5 cents an hour pay. LOL
If I understand what I saw in the original file, Scene pane, the duration of each transition was supposed to be .15 seconds relative and it showed a total timeline of 7.15 seconds with 16 thumbnails. Mine is 12 images totaling 5.15 seconds, but is that relevant since the clicks on the right and left arrows cause the motion. ? Or is the transition between images actually .5 seconds because thats what the timeline shows.
I know that if I manually drag the timeline, the images do not sync up with the individual .5 second events in the timeline. So what actually controls the events?
If I have to, I will stack them all, do a fade-out, fade in manually controlled with individual image small buttons, but I like what this effect is supposed to be. I know it started going wrong when i started modifying the original without really understanding what the original designers plan.
Does anybody recognize it or know how to help me with this one? I bet it is very simple to whoever did the original.
HELP! trying to attach a file, thought the “chain” was the link for attaching files? It just creates a new post.
