The maximum file size is about 700MB on Racontr. You must cut or optimize your media if the size had to be a bigger.

There are some good practices to know to use fonts on the software.
All fonts on Racontr have to be uploaded to the web TTF standard format. For legal reasons, you must ensure that your fonts are copyright free.
Recently, Adobe blacklist typography, preventing some conversions to different formats and separating the EOT file (this file ensures compatibility with Internet Explorer). In this case, you need to buy the police to carry out your project in the best conditions.

We hope not! Racontr does not impose a format, a navigation or a design. You can freely customize your interface and your interactive scenario. Creativity is you have, freedom is what we give.

You can ask for anyone to join your project and help you create a beautiful interactive experience. Work alongside your designer, author, producer or just your friends.

Yes. You can browse our template gallery. To install one of them, just click on the ?Create project? button on your dashboard and select ?Choose a template?. All options and upgrades needed to edit a template are included in its price.

On Ipad, there are some restrictions where we have no control, and it is important to consider it when creating a project.

The rollover doesn?t exist on Ipad, so you will have to choose the click. If your project is for both for consultation and tablet computer you can use the roll-over but only to add an effect or bring up a non-essential information to the understanding of your topic

Videos and sounds can?t be launch automatically. You need to create an action-?click? on an item in order to trigger. (If you use the video master, you can create a play button on the first frame of your timeline and make it disappear in the second. Therefore your autoplay movie will be played alone computer and no allowing time for the user to see this button and on Ipad, you will trigger reading).

The size (format) images is limited. So you should make sure you prepare them the right size. For example, for a panoramic, think about segmenting the photo for ipad.

Through this website you can get an idea of the format compatibility of your images and your shelves : http://www.williammalone.com/articles/html5-javascript-ios-maximum-image-size/

To integrate an embed properly, it?s necessary that the url is https, not http.

It?s a standard that is becoming increasingly recurring on the web, the reason for our choice.

Editing projects

You can only use the content for which you own the intellectual rights.

Racontr welcomes every major format for your media; jpeg, png, gif for your images; mp3, wav for your sounds; mp4, avi, mov for your videos.

You can parameterize a specific style to different types of text (title, subtitle, links, rollover, click) in the ?Project? tab and then ?font? of your editor.

In the case of text links, these settings take precedence over the text block should be applied before your link styles in the ?font? tab.

To remove watermarking, you can export your project and retrieve an archive of your project to be hosted anywhere.
