Lectora Inspire is a widely used rapid authoring tool that allows you to create eLearning courses quickly and easily. It has many features that enable you to develop engaging eLearning courses. Here I would like to share one such feature – fly animation.
Fly animation allows you to move an object, on the screen, from any side i.e; from (left, right top, bottom, top left, top right, bottom left and bottom right). Using this feature, you can animate the text in Lectora.
How to add Fly animation?
It’s simple to add Fly animation (Transition Effects) in Lectora inspire.
You can find Transition Effects (animations) in Properties menu. Select the object for which you want to assign the effect.
In the transition option you can find two options
- Transition in
- Transition out
Transition In: This effect can be assigned to any object or text as it appears in the slide.
Transition Out: This effect can be assign to any object or text as it disappears in the slide.
There are 14 effects (animation) in Lectora Inspire for Transition In and Transition Out. Some of them are
- Random (No Fly)
- Split Horizontal
- Split Vertical
Transition In: Below is the screenshot for the default effects provided in Transition In.
Transition Out: Below is the screenshot for the default effects provided in Transition Out. Let us see how to add these effects
1. Select the Fly option from the Transition In list.
2. You can see all the Fly Transition options in the drop down list, from where the text can be animated.
Fly in animation options and their properties,
- Bottom: Text will be animated from bottom.
- Bottom Left: Text will be animated from bottom left.
- Bottom Right: Text will be animated from bottom right.
- Left: Text will be animated from Left side.
- Right: Text will be animated from right side.
- Top: Text will be animated from top.
- Top Left: Text will be animated from top left.
- Top Right: Text will be animated from top right.
You can even find one more option in Fly animation below the transition options i.e; Delay before transition. This option is helpful in making the content appear in specific timings. You can use this feature to make 2 sentences appear with a gap of few seconds. For instance, you can make the second sentence appear 5 seconds after the first.
3. Adjust the slider to adjust animation speed of the object.
4. Select the Fly Transition from Transition effects. Select the best option that suits your slide, adjust the slider speed to meet your requirement and click OK.
In the same way rest of the animation in the transition effects can be used.
Hope this blog helps you assign the Fly animation to the content, in an easy manner. Please share your views.
