Since page transitions aren’t giving the desired effect(we only want part of a page fading in and out) I’m using group transitions to keep my work simple. I’ve grouped a mix of text, images, buttons and a video and everything fades in and out as expected, except for the video. Video remains hidden but still auto plays and responds to mouseclicks as expected. If I take the video out of the group it works as normal but I can’t put a fade transition on it anymore.
For now I have a workaround of a white rectangle fading out/in overtop of the video and it works fine because we have a white background for this project, but I’m concerned about how to handle this issue in the future.
I’m on version 17.0.1
Any advice would be appreciated.
I’ve done some searching on the forums here and Google in general but haven’t seen anything that answers this question. If I missed something obvious, sorry, I’m new and still learning the terms 🙂
Replace “video40” with the HTML name of your video player. You can do this for all the elements you want to fade on the page; you’ll have procure the correct HTML ID’s of the element(s) you want to affect (the built in html name is not always the correct target – use the browsers developers console to inspect the element for the correct ID.
The only transitions that are supported within Lectora on a video object are random, appear, and fly. If you placed any of the other options this can cause issues with the video. I’m bringing the fact that all are showing in group transitions even when a video file is present to our development team.
