How do I create a flipping book in Adobe Flash?

Jul 2, 2009 5:28 PM

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!

 

Best,

 

.stephen

    I've been using this third party API. There may be even better ones out there now. Good luck!

    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.

    Hi!

     

    Just got really interested if you went with http://www.pageflip.hu/. I use http://page-flip.com/ (actually http://flippingbook.com/) now and judging be demo publications on pageflip.hu, guys at FlippingBook really win. Maybe there are some advantages I am not aware of?
