Annotation Behavior

Hi all!  I created an annotation that has a hinge on in AND out phases, but stops in the during phase.  I'd like it to continue to swing throughout its section of the timeline.

Advice, please?  Thanks!

I think the Pop Up Effect will suit your needs?



It's a hinge type movement. It's applied  to the sides just like the hinge effect. You'll probably want to use "Smooth" as the applied movement type? You may like another setting better?
And play around with the parameters.It makes a lot of difference as to how the annotation moves.

Hi Deborah,

What if you set the In and Out tabs to "None" and then use the "Pop Up" animation with the "Loop Forever" checkbox?


That gives me a continuously looping animation similar to the Hinge.

Let me know if that's what you were looking for.

Update: Joe is fast.  Beat me to the punch.  :)

I like it, but if it were me. I would want it to hinge up from not appearing at all,  slowly "Not real slow" Then swing back and forth at about 35 degrees of rotation for the During action "Pop Up". { I played around with it } Then hinge down out of sight for the Out effect.
The looped effect is only one effect. So it's easier to apply. Nice tip.
