I’m an Animate (Flash) and once a Director developer. As the Flash player is coming to an end, we have decided (where I work) to use Captivate for our lesson publishing application. I have been tasked with making our template, and need to design choices that my other team members to choose from. Captivate seems to be similar to Powerpoint’s Master slide. I’m going to use responsive design with fluid boxes and I’m not sure where to design all of our possible layouts.
In Animate (Our current template) we have an Introduction slide and depending on the content we have various different layouts.
What we always have on a slide:
- The top has a title
- The bottom has the navigation and other buttons on a bar
- In between is the content
The content can layout:
- Text on the left with graphic on the right or vice versa
- Text on top and graphics on the bottom or vice versa
- All text no graphics
- Only Graphics or no text
- Video only
Do I use the filmstrip or Master slide?
If Master slide, do I design the navigation there or in filmstrip?
