Using Construct 2 to create HTML5 interactive presentations

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Sep 04, 2014 11:32 am

I wonder if the Construct 2 is the best program for creating interactive presentations on HTML5 as presentations produced in Flash. I believe so, but would like to hear another opinion or suggestion. What is lacking, especially for creating presentations is a timeline.

@RenatoB Seeing that you have mentioned Flash, have you already seen Edge Animate? It has a timeline and a very similar workflow to Flash, and it works in HTML5.

Hi @CleitonEldron. I know Edge but I found this program a bit limited. I would like to be able to program or use events like the C2.I think if the C2 have a timeline, could use it as a Flash to create HTML5 presentation with games.

It does not have a timeline, but you can mesure the time and use timers on objects, I don t know if that is enough for what you want though.

I would say the free edition may be enough to try things out

Also I think there exist a timeline plugin somewhere in the forums, but not sure what it actually does.
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

Hi @Aphrodite. I actually already do this (measuring time), but it would be much more practical and simple to do that visually. A timeline is also very useful for controlling animations in a game or effects duration. I've seen Timeline plugin (Rez) and I think it's useful to define time sequences. Maybe one day we will have this feature in C2.

Might try Spriter.
It is a timeline on steroids.
