best solution for seamless videos
I have a client who is producing a top-notch animation. At certain points in the animation, the video is going to stop and a storyline interaction will show. After the interaction, the video will start again. From the user's perspective though they should believe that the Storyline interaction is part of the video. So my questions regarding seamlessness are...
- I have inserted videos onto slides before and at a certain point, Storyline bogs down in saving, developing, publishing and using the course. So I'm wondering if Storyline behaves differently if its a one 20 minute video or 20 1-minute videos. This is not a discussion about learners right now. I promise I'm not going to insert a 20-minute video :). I'm trying to understand this from a technical viewpoint.
- So when storyline bogs down because of the amount of video in it, I usually speak with the client about using a video host and embedding the videos. However, seamlessness is an issue here because we don't want the user to see a black screen or any visual incontinuity while Storyline calls up the video from a different server. So is embedding even an option.
Your help would be most appreciated. If you done this kind of "overlay Storyline on top of short videos" work, let me know if there is a different solution. The client must use an LMS because they need to track scores and completion, hence the storyline aspect.
