Hello new friends,
I am a graphic designer with many years of experience in Creative Suite Design Standard software. However I'm just beginning to get into Flash and have a project where I need to create a simple page-flipping brochure. My client has a 3-fold borchure in both SWF and JPEG formats which she wants to turn into a Flash flipping book to post on her website. I have the CS3 Web Premium package but I want to know if I need a third-party page flip plug-in or does my version of Flash (9.0) include the page flip engine? Also where can I find a tutorial to build a flipping book in Flash as this would be very helpful in building one for the first time.
Many thanks in advance for any help you guy and gals can give me!
Your best bet for finding a tutorial is search Google using "AS# page flip tutorial", where # is whatever version of actionscript you plan to use. I don't know that I ever found a good tutorial for it, but it's been a while since I looked. Still, you may find a freebie example you can build with.
Thanks for all the help and suggestions!
If anyone's interested I did find a site that looks like it has some good information regarding creating flip books (step by step) and they also sell page flip software that seems to work really well (as seen in the demos). Here's the site: http://www.pageflip.hu/ (PageFlip 3.5) In the third paragraph of the home page there is a greyed out link "online documentation." Select that link and it will take you to their documentation on how to build a flip file using their software. Fairly simple approach. I will probably purchase this software.
System requirements for PageFlip 3.5 — Any browser with Adobe Flash player 8 installed; Adobe Flash 8 to edit source files.
