We’re just starting with Hype 3 and we’re struggling to create what we think what should be two sequential and simple animation.
The animation is to how somebody pinching on a map to zoom out and spreading their fingers to zoom in.
We have created two timelines underneath the main timeline.
Zoom in. We use two red circles moving to indicate the spread, we have set the start and end positions. We have set the map start and end positions and the animation works fine.
Zoom Out. As above but going in the opposite direction. We know we could reverse the Zoom in but we want to prove the principle.
We can run each of these by selecting the appropriate timeline and starting it. Each runs perfectly well by itself.
What we want it to do is to do one timeline first and then do the second timeline, so it zooms in and then zooms out (the order is immaterial, it’s just having sequences of simple animations that we want).
We can’t seem to create it all on one timeline or in one scene and we don’t think that seems right anyway, we assume we should be create smaller chunks of self contained work. We’ve looked at putting actions on the main timeline that call the other timelines but that doesn’t seem to work. That feels like it’s the right way.
What we don’t want to do is to put a button on the screen, we want this to be seamless and just work for the user.
We attach the doc we have created. It has two timelines, a zoom in and a zoom out and the main timeline.
We have downloaded the tutorials and watched quite a lot of videos, but we clearly have missed some fundamental way of working.
