Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Stopping and starting an animated symbol, part of Creating an Animated Infographic with Edge Animate.
Now to set the timing of this animated symbol on the stage, let's come out of Isolation mode.…So with the top of the document, we can come over here and click on Stage, …that will brings back to the main stage.…Now notice, since we have an animation inside of anim_people we have this dotted gray arrow here.…So if I drag this back-and-forth you can see the animation playing of the…animated people symbol on the Main stage.…So if I drag the playhead back to 0, notice the animation for the animated people starts right away.…So let's come down here and under Playback let's click on this button here and choose Stop.…
What this will do is at the 0 marker of the Main stage it will stop the anim_people symbol.…What we're going to do is decide when we want the people to start to fall in.…I want that to start a little bit after the wedge starts to open, so right about here.…So with the playhead at .574, let's come down to Playback, let's come down and…choose Play, this will make the anim_people symbol wait 'till half a second before it begins to play.…
