- With InDesign's Animation Panel…you can make objects move,…change size, position, or visibility.…Unfortunately, these animations won't work…in every kind of interactive document…that you can export from InDesign.…For example, they won't work…if you directly export a document with them…to Interactive PDF.…And they won't work in DPS projects, either.…But, animations do work in exported EPUBs, and SWFs…and they can add a lot of interactivity…and visual interest to a document.…So let's take a look at how to work…with InDesign's animation tools.…
I'll start by opening the Animation Panel…and in the exercise file for this movie…I'll select the text frame with the artist's name…and the little ornament on it,…on the left hand side, here.…This icon with the three circles on the frame…tells me that the animation has been applied to this frame.…And in the panel, I can see that the animation…has been given a name, "Artist",…and it uses the preset, Fade In.…And I can move my cursor over the butterfly logo…in the panel to see a preview of that fade in.…
