Video fading to still image with Map Area links

A client has asked me to use a video he is planning to have shot, when the video completes he wants it to change to a still ariel image of his site. He then wants to be able to click on areas of the image to link to other pages in his site.
His site was set up in Freeway 5.5 and he doesn’t want to pay me to do any other updates.
Any ideas on best way to approach this (I don’t have any knowledge of coding)

He is probably spending more on the Video than it would cost to update the site!

However I dont think you can do this any other way than some Javascript because you aren’t going to be able to embed an image with clickable links into the Video.

My first thought would be to use the Transition FX action to fade in your static image with overlayed links after the video has ended. Set the Delay to match the length of the Video.

You may want to fade the video away, rather than fade in the static image. Put the static image at the bottom of the stack, with map areas over it for the various hot-spots, then layer the video on top of that, and apply the TransitionFX Action to the movie, set to a timed delay to hide. You will have to fiddle with it for the offset time, because the effect timer will start when the page loads, not when the movie is downloaded enough to start playing. You may have the video either hang around too long (on a fast connection) or disappear before it finishes playing (on a slow one). But either way, having the video on top will keep the video from “stealing” the clicks in the same location as the static photo. This will definitely happen if you are using a Flash playback technique. If you use HTML5 video, then you won’t have that issue.
