Join Pooja Jaisingh for an in-depth discussion in this video Apply trigger-based effects, part of Adobe Captivate 2017: Animations and Effects.
- [Instructor] In the last few videos, we learned how to apply timeline-based effects to the objects where the effect plays on the object based on the timing of the object and the timing of the effect. Now let's learn how to create a trigger-based effect where the effect will be applied on a click of a button. I have the trigger-based effect start project open. You can open it from the Exercise Files folder, chapter three folder. Here on the stage, I've added a button, and I've added a shape.
Select the Start Animation button. Then go to the properties inspector by clicking the Properties button on the top right corner. Here, switch to the Actions tab. Then, open the On Success dropdown and select Apply Effect. Here, make sure Arrow is selected as the object name. And then to apply the effect, click the Animation Palette button. Now select the category of animation you want to apply and then select the effect.
If you wish to, you can modify the properties as well. Let me change the rotate times to three here and the direction to counterclockwise. Now let's preview this animation. We'll go to Preview, Project. Notice that the animation doesn't play when the screen loads. But when I click the Start Animation button, the animation starts playing.
