Using images of cutout people in a training course can really bring it to life. They are a great for scenarios, case studies, and adding a personal touch.
Articulate Storyline comes pre-packaged with various illustrated and photographic people images. However, you may want to create your own. In this post I’ll show you how to create storyline characters with multiple poses.
Steps to Create Storyline Characters from scratch
Let’s discuss how you’d use this character set.
You can copy this character set onto any slide that you’d like to have a person image. You then use the triggers to change the pose that appears.
Let’s see an example. Let’s say that you have a character set that you created and it has three states: Normal (default first state), Happy (one that you created), Frustrated (another one that you created). You have a question on the slide and two buttons: True and False. When a user clicks on the True button you want the Happy state to appear. When the user clicks False you want the Frustrated state to appear.
5. Do the same steps as above for your False button but choose the Frustrated state.
That’s it! Go ahead and preview your slide. Now imagine having a character set that contains a few more poses. You could build great scenarios and as the user clicks various buttons have different poses appear. This allows you to create some creative content.
