Hi B,

Did conversion to Zendesk for learning content break prior links?

It seems that your link above http://prezi.com/learn/looping-and-zo...
no longer works and the redirect is to https://prezi.zendesk.com/forums.

Being that your comment is less than a year old I would hope that converting to Zendesk for forum management would include mapping old help links to their new locations.

Where can I find the content previously located at .../looping-and-zooming/?
I tried searching this by string and keyword to no avail.

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Axel Sanjinez,

you can use flash objects (SWF files) to create animation and there are lots of software types available to do this (Adobe Flash being the the most prominent I would have thought) or you can make a .gif animation (clipart - you can find loads on the web) and convert it to a swf using a image converter - just google - I use Any video Converter and Format Factory.

Hope this helps

John

I agree with all the comments I'm finding here and elsewhere. With the incredible proliferation of animated gifs on the web today, it seems incredible that Prezi is not supporting this format, and that you seem to have no plans to.

I wish that you could add objects to prezi like the ones they have on their templates and when i try to make my own background by using a pic from google images it won't let me for some reason

I figured out how to add animations by converting them to swf format.

The problem I have is once I convert the gifs to swf they have a box and background around them. How to I get these animations without the background around it?

Like in this prezi.

Does not really give you step by step instructions but i found it a tiny bit helpful. If you could give me step by step instructions that would be great

Hello Community,
I am interested as well to put animation inside a given step of a Prezi.
Actually I use to create SWF with Adobe Flash Professional, and in general it works as needed.
I'd like to check with you if you have encountered the following limits, and if you could overcome them:

1.
Not all the SWF files are accepted by prezi, for example if I do some more specific animation with Action Script 3 (language adopted by Adobe Flash), like for example to have the effect of flipping the pages of a book, then the resulting SWF is not accepted by prezi (literally it says "Action Script is not supported").

2.
Even for simple SWF files that are accepted by prezi, if they have themselves any interactivity, like reacting to some mouse click, it may happen that the prezi cannot distinguish when the click is intended for the SWF or for the prezi.

3.
Last but mos important: any idea of what format I can adopt, to have an animated content displayed in prezi from an iPad?

Any comments on any of the points above?

Thanks a lot!

Hello Cristiano,

yes, you are right about flash and action script - if the code is detected you will receive a 2700 error - Action Script is not supported. You may be able to get some SWF files to load (and through Prezi Desktop) but generally it will not work with any interaction. Some mouse overs and clicking may still work...but this is not guaranteed I'm afraid.

Unfortunately the iPad does not support flash, and therefore there is no animation (other than the Prezi fade in).

cheers

John
