Motion Sensor

Create motion-related effects on your iOS or Android device using the accelerometer. 

⚠️ Best for mobile apps: These features are adapted for mobile applications (web and native). Devices must have an accelerometer. Desktop users can use the mouse to trigger motion events.  

Insert a motion sensor

Click on Components and insert the Motion Sensor.
This is a non-graphical component, it has no visual representation on your screen but is accessible from the Object list.
In the Properties window, customize the Motion Sensor : 
  • Choose the type of motion: Tilt or Orientation.
  • Choose the axis: Horizontal and/or Vertical.
  • Define the minimum and maximum value of the axis, i.e. the recognized amplitude. 
  • Using the accelerometer allows you to recognize changes in speed.
Without further action on your part, the motion sensor is inactive. You can synchronize it with another component (e.g. an image sequence or a scrolling area) or set up an action.

Synchronize another component with the movement of the device 

You can synchronize the Motion Sensor component with any component. For example with a Sequence of images.
Insert the Sequence component, add media and customize the properties. 
In the Motion Sensor Properties window, choose the horizontal axis and keep the default properties.
Insert a Synchronization component and in the Properties window, click + ADD COMPONENTS. Choose the Sequence and Sensor.
Set the synchronizable properties: frames for the sequence, horizontal axis for the motion sensor.

Trigger an action by a specific tilt/orientation

You can define a specific inclination with which you want to trigger an action. For example, make the response appear when the device is turned over.

Create a marker

First you need to create a marker at the desired tilt/orientation.
In the Properties window, click the Edit button.
In the Edit window on the left, add one or more markers. 

Create the action

Open the Interactivity window and click + Add
Choose as trigger the marker 
Choose as action: Change screen.
