Storyline 2: How to Decide Whether a SWF File Should Be Inserted as a Video or a Flash Movie

Article Last Updated

You can insert SWF files into Articulate Storyline as videos or as Flash objects. Which method is best? It depends on how you'll use them:

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