HTML5 Animations and the UseWidget7 option

I'm have an issue and I'm hoping someone out there has a workaround.  I have two HTML5 animations to include in one course.  One, early in the course, needs to run behind other objects on the screen and one (a slider) that I need the learner to interact with toward the end of the course.  I've figured out that the UseWidget7 line in the AdobeCaptivate.ini file will let me do one or the other, but I don't know how to set it up so I can do both.  I'd like to avoid creating two seperate SCOs (one with the background animation and the other with the slider) if at all possible. 

 

Does anyone have any suggestions or a fix for this?

 

Thanks

As far as I know its one or the other. You can't change the variable midstream. I've used scripts to change it before the CPM.js is actually rendered.

 

I would suggest putting the items that the animation needs to be behing in the actual animation file.

I think you might be right about one or the other.  I've ended up splitting the course into two SCOs so I'll publish one file with UseWidget7 set to 0 and the other with it set to 1.  I've only dabble with writing .js, if you don't mind sharing the script you talked about and tell me how you used it I'd appreciate it.
