  • Working with Videos in TigerCreate 2


    since we got a few questions on how to use videos in TigerCreate I thought it might be helpful to create a thread about it. Videos will be included in the online manual but we're still busy updating it.


    Videos are a new feature of TigerCreate 2 and can be added to the project folder just like images and sound files.
    Select your video files and drag & drop them onto the project navigator. TigerCreate will automatically create a folder for movies where it saves those files.
    (If you move your files directly in Finder you will have to create the folder movies manually.)

    Video Format:

    - Videos have to available in the format .mp4 and they need the H.264 video codec.
    - other formats than .mp4 won't show up in the project navigator
    - general maximum allowed size is 2048 x 2048 pixels
    - maximum allowed size for iBooks is 2048 x 1940 pixels for Landscape projects and 1940 x 2048 pixels for portrait projects

    TigerCreate will show you a warning message if the size or encoding of the file is wrong.


    Differences and exceptions when working with videos:

    Videos can be used like images but there are a few differences that have to be kept in mind.

    - Videos can't be set as a start animation
    - Videos don't start automatically, they have to be started with a touch (So make sure you add an animation and have "Is touchable" enabled to start your video.)
    - Loop Time and Number of Frames (length of the timeline) can't be changed for videos. Those are set automatically and are dependent on the video's length.
    - You can only animate Postion, Rotation, Scale and Opacity.
    - Ping Pong, Drag Along, Free Drag and Is Scratchable are not available for videos
    - Since video files have sound most of the time there is no option to set a Volume Key Animation. Instead you can regulate the volume of the whole video with the Movie Volume option.
    - Only one video per scene. TigerCreate will show a warning when you try to add second video to a scene.


    That's it about videos. Have fun integrating them into your projects.

    You still have any questions?
