SWF or Flash Player format is another Option…for creating interactive documents, including presentations with InDesign.…Here's an example of a SWF presentation with all the bells and whistles.…It starts with an opening animated slide, and…it has multiple ways to navigate, including buttons,…an animated pop up drawer with clickable thumbnails…of each slide, and the classic page curl effect.…Let's consider the advantages and disadvantages of SWF presentations.…
A swift presentation offers some of the same…advantages that you get with a PDF presentation.…Namely, that you get to use InDesign's tools to design the look of your slides…and come up with a completely fresh lool,…unlike the templated presentations from Powerpoint or Keynote.…And SWFs are also compact, self-contained, and portable.…And unlike a PDF presentation,…a SWF presentation can include any…animation that you make with InDesign's tools.…So, you can have content moving, changing…in size, bouncing, or whatever else you like.…
