I am creating a DPS pub and an relying heavily on web content overlays for some of the functionality.
I use jquery quite a bit in regular web development. I have created a image flip effect that I looks/works perfectly in Mobile Safari.
When I embed in my DPS doc and upload as a folio and test it on my iPad, it doesn't really work very well. Does not show the nice smooth flipping motion that I am seeing in pubs like Popular Mechanics.
Is there some other technology that I am unaware of that is being used to get some of these amazing more advanced effects? I thought it would be jquery, I don't see how within the built-in InDesign interactivity I can accomplish this...
Any help would be so appreciated...
Here's an example of a jquery flip effect that works fairly well. You can download and edit the code.
Thank you for the quick reply.
I did look at that example, and needed something more complex. Maybe I can start again utilizing the csstransform.pack.js.
Am I headed in the right direction in my thinking for some of the advanced effects in a pub like Popular Mechanics that jquery is the answer? Are there any guidlines that I can keep in mind when developing js code so I know what will render best in DPS on iPad? Not sure why the example given works better than the flip js I had in place - both look great in web browser. I had not used CSS3 transitions - is this the key to working with animation for DPS/iPad combo? Just trying to find the best way forward...
any insights helpful...
