In InDesign CS5: Interactive Documents and Presentations, Adobe Certified Instructor and designer James Fritz shows print designers how to use InDesign by itself and in conjunction Flash Professional to layout and design a wide range of digital documents. The course provides a tour of digital publishing trends, showing real-world examples of what can be achieved through InDesign. Several start-to-finish projects are also included, such as creating a presentation with transitions and animations, and building an interactive microsite. Exercise files accompany the course.
Now that we have made all of the necessary edits to our file, we will need to publish it into a SWF, so it could be deployed on the web. With all the changes finished in our layout, we are going into File > Publish Settings. Inside Publish Settings, we can choose the directory that the Flash and HTML file will go to. I am going to click on the little folder over here, and I am going to choose my Desktop for the SWF. I am going to choose the Desktop for my HTML file. We can also produce static images for the layout, but we don't need to do that right now. We do have the option to create stand- alone projectors for the Mac and Windows.
This means someone will be able to run this movie without having to have the Flash Player installed. Inside the Flash tab, I'll leave the player at Flash Player 10, because we are going to be using the Flash TLF engine, and we don't have to worry about anything inside HTML tab. Back in Formats, now that we are ready to publish, we want to hit the Publish button. If we click OK, we wouldn't have published anything. We'll click Publish and we will publish everything to our desktop, and on our desktop we can double-click on the publishing.html file. Now inside our web browser you can take a look at the finished product.
We have the Rollover button that goes to the next page. We have our movie. (Music playing) Each page has its animations, and they seem to stop on every page. If your layout needs more interactivity or the file size is too large, this is when you would pass along your Flash assets to a Developer. By learning the basics of Flash you can get a sense of what a Flash developer will be doing as they finish your document.
