I made a simple HTML5 Animation. When I bring it in as an OAM file all I get is a blank whate screen.
I'm new to Animate and haven't inserted HTML 5 animations before so its probably my fault.
Did you add the HTML5 animation as a zipped file or as a straight OAM?
That seemed to be the only option for bringing it in through media in Captivate.
When you are in Animate with this animation on the timeline, what do you see if you hit Ctrl + Enter to do a test publish? What should happen is that you see your default web browser open and play the animation.
If you also see a blank screen when you do that, then something is wrong in your animation. If you see it play correctly, then the problem might be with the way you have it set up in Captivate. Do you have it set to be Not Visible in Output perhaps?
It plays correctly when I run Test in Animate. I've published it as OAM and attempted to zip it and import it that way and both bring up a blank square. These animation are just little movies that play on the screen when you press a button. The previous developer used .swf.
I had a developer on another team make a .zip of the animate .fla and they gave me a zip file and it still isn't showing up. Well I played with the frame and when I stretched it out I found the animation. Weird. Now the problem is getting it to play. I previewed it in HTML5 but it just sat there at the first screen. It didn't play and I don't want it to play automatically I want it to start when the student clicks a button.
I create animation in html and insert those, never use AnimateCC to do them so I'm not sure exactly how you would add the script.
If you want them to click a button to start the animation you can build that in AnimateCC.
