Epub3 and Interactivity
So... I'm in the biggest rut ever and this is for my bachelor degree... Are you up for a challenge?
(I know the threads on here - it says animation is not supported, etc etc)
I want to create a children's story (it's a poem with 5 pages about stress relief, a friend of mine is illustrating it) with interaction using Epub3.
The epub will be free on various platforms when done. My first direction is however towards iPad.
As long as something HAPPENS when touching different hotspots, I'm happy, BUT...
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" version="1.1"> <rect x="20" y="20" width="250" height="250" style="fill:blue"> <animate attributeType="CSS" attributeName="opacity" from="1" to="0" dur="5s" repeatCount="indefinite" /> </rect> </svg>
That said, I have also found this:
But of course the code she uses is not shown, just a mild outline.
Is there any code you know of using some sort of interaction or animation that actually works except that fading rectangle?

It won't work on various platforms as various platforms don't support ePub3. The best you'll get maybe is using iBooks. iBooks is not standard, so you'll have to figure out iBooks' oddities. But any eink reader does not support ePub3 nor ePub with animations.

The animation part of SVG is also not supported in ePUB v3, just like in ePUB v2. It is in the specifications:
Please be aware that there are hardly any ePUB v3 readers or reading applications. The iBooks program is not, as JSWolf already said, a good example. It is tuned to Apple's version of ePUB and deviates from the IDPF specifications. YMMV.
