Transparent button is a type of button, but I suspect you mean another type?
How does it look with 'Preview HTML in Browser'? Which browser do you use?
Yeah, I'm still new to Captivate so I don't know a whole lot yet. When I preview it in the LMS and HTML it is transparent but not when I see it in Captivate. It's around 50% or 60% see through when I preview it. My process was just taking a shape and turning it into a button and in the properties the opacity is at 100%. Under style name it says Default Smart Shape Style. I'll look around it a little more to see if it's set to be transparent or not. do you know of any other reason this could happen?
You are using a shape button; which is the most flexible type. It is the opacity which is important in that case.More info (maybe too much) in:
You probably inserted the videos as slide video, not event video, and hopefully in a non-responsive project.
I always avoid to put buttons on top of a video, keep space reserved for them. Here is an example of an interactive video:
Maybe post a screenshot of what you see with Preview HTML in Browser? One button is OK, but the other 'at the start of the slide' not. Are both buttons on the master slide and/or set to display for the rest of the project?
Thank you, I'm going to look in to those links. I insterted an interactive video from my computer. I'll have to double check with my boss if I can post a screen shot. I do appreciate the help a lot.
One thing I would suggest checking: If you have this shape button timed to Fade In, then remove the fade in and preview as HTML5 again to see if the button now looks at 100% opacity.
If it does, then that would suggest that your original iss is due to some other interactive button or component pausing the timeline at some point while the button is fading in. That would account for why it looks semi-transparent.
To fix this all you need to do is prevent that pausing of the timeline.
thank you, I think I do have it set to fade out once the user clicks it. I didn't know I could prevent button from pausing the timeline. I'm going to look in to that this morning.
The pausing point of any interactive object by default is set at 1.5secs. Use the Timing Properties panel to change the timing or deactivate the pausing.
Maybe post a screenshot of the timeline of that video slide?
