we are about to do a massive folio for a client. it is about his whole line of produtcs. which is like 36 folios in total. anyways. the client asked if its possible to put the created folios on his website as well. so that you can get the same expierence as on the ipad. i would say it is not possible, but wanted to check it before. i guess there is no way of creating an interactive PDF or something else from the same indesign file as the folio is, right?
cheers and thanks in advance
It could happen as early as February. There are some demo videos of this new feature floating around. With this new upcoming feature, you add twitter or Facebook links to your folio articles. Customers can then share the folio with others. When the recipients click the link on their desktop machines, a web version of the folio will open. More details to follow...
To be clear, you're not actually publishing a folio to a website. Here's a link to a video that provides more information. The social media section is around the 45-minute mark:
I guess it's not as much as being able to distribute folio files freely, it's more showing it immediately. As is presented in this Max Sneak Peek: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/max-2011-sneak-peeks/max-2011-sneak-peek-ind esign-liquid-layout/
The liquid layout feature its amazing.
When would it be coming out?
and also, what are the chances of people actually being able to watch folios on a webpage? or being able to download them to watch them on their regular laptop or desktop computer?
Coming late to this, as I'm new to DPS, I have a further query. If the .folio is part of a paid for app in Newsstand etc, will it be possible to offer paid subscription to view the editionb online, for readers who don't own tablets?
Additionally, will the analytics aspect of this still work on the we-based version to record statistics on all viewing platforms?
I don't know, but I guess it can't be far away. That will give the perfect platform for magazines.
Just now sure how they will cost it as part of the charge for folio bundles and how it will work if you're selling a subscription vi a website as opposed to iTunes.
I'd listen to the video, but at 45 minutes, it's too much time to spend when I need tomake business decisions about which platform to go with. Perhaps a transcript or more concise presentation would have been useful.
Second half of 2012 would be fine.
I understood right? This feature will not be free? The Adobe will tell to us that the folio files do not belong to us? We will not be able to upload our folio files and simply publish them in our websites?
