Storyline 1: How to Decide Whether a SWF File Should Be Inserted as a Video or a Flash Movie

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

A SWF file can be inserted into Storyline either as a video or as a Flash object. So how do you decide which method is best? It depends on how you'll use the SWF file:

  • If your SWF file is a movie that requires no interaction from users, use the Insert > Video > Video from File option. This synchronizes the video with the slide's timeline.
  • If your SWF file contains interactive elements, use the Insert > Flash option. This method plays the SWF file independently of the slide, allowing your users to interact with it at their own pace.
