Design patterns

There are many different ways in which you can use the Content Editor to create the experience that you want. Included below are some common design patterns that you can use and combine.

Linear sequence

Linear sequence
This design pattern is suitable for animations and educational or training materials. After the sequence begins, it plays through all of the content in a linear order, and then ends.
This is the easiest design pattern to use. Add objects to the timeline and animate them in any way that you want. To test the sequence, you can use the playback controls in the Content Editor.

Segmented

Segmented
This design pattern is suitable for sequences where the user's actions trigger jumps to different parts of the sequence. For example, you may want to play training content in sections, and give the user an opportunity to reflect on content before they choose to continue. Alternatively, you may want to create a branching narrative when a user's choices determine which parts of a story are shown.
To use this design pattern, divide the timeline into separate, looping sections. You can add IFX that jumps from one point in the timeline to another - both to create the loops and as the target for triggers to jump from one segment to another. For more information, see Creating a loop.

User triggered

User triggered
This design pattern is suitable for sequences where a user can trigger animations, but where those animations can overlap.
To use this design pattern, create a continuous loop on the main timeline. You can then add triggers that add objects or recordings to the main sequence. For more information, see Triggers.
