Slide-based presentations can be very boring when the visual content presented is static, full of text, or poor in color or layout. Moovly allows you to create interactive video-based presentations, whereby every transition from one screen to another is simply a piece of video or animation that pauses automatically where you want it.
Creating an interactive video starts by setting up your project mode within the Stage properties:
From there everything happens in the same way as creating any Moovly video: compose your content using library objects and time their appearance and animation using the Timeline.
Where you want your video to pause (because you want to explain or present that content), add a Pause Point (this is essential when you want to save your presentation!). You can do this in the Studio under the animations section (open the Add animation menu, choose Move & Transform and select Add pause):
When pause points are present, your video playback will pause wherever such a pause point is present.
Note: you will need to play your interactive video using the Moovly player, which will be included in your download. Other video players, such as Quicktime, Windows Media Player, YouTube, etc... will ignore your pause points, and interactive options and just continue the video playback.
You can move a pause point by dragging it left or right. You can delete it by right-clicking it and selecting "Remove pause point":
*NEW* You can add interactivity to your project. Select an object on the stage and unfold the Interactivity panel. Under type add your link. When you download or publish your interactive project, viewers will be able to click on the object and access the link.
To use your project as a presentation, you will need to download it as a presentation (.zip) file.
