We recently updated to CS5.5 Design Premium with the hopes we could do amazing things. One thing that we wanted to replicate in Flash was:
We've been able to create the SWF file separate from the active webpage (iframe) which works but not exactly the same.
Been looking for a way in InDesign and Flash to be able to link and pull active content through the design to display the way it is in the sample above. This is a great presentation tool and we'd like to start building many of these for clients.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We've found JQuery that does similar but the sampel is in Flash or SWF and is really what we wanted to replicate.
These will do what you want:
A Google search for PDF to Flash Flip Book will reveal many more.

Thanks Nancy O., but I can create a flash flipbook without buying another program using Flash export to SWF and link an XML file if needed. The question was how to create the embedded "live" content pulled from a website within the SWF or flipbook. The versions provided uses embedded or static pages (JPG) but we're looking for the active content as in the example provided.
If you check the original sample link, past the first page is a live website pulling data on the right - it's not just a zoomable image. We're still looking... thanks for the suggestion.
I am in the same boat, just wanted to know if you used any of the software you mentioned?
I have tried axmag, but... Well. wasn't impressed. flippingbook.com seems to be so much better (I simply love the way their publications look! http://flippingbook.com/demo/) but since you put axmag in the first place, could it be that I miss anything?
Honestly, I don't use Flash. Haven't used it for several years.
Flash had a very good run for a decade or more. But the tide has shifted away from Flash towards HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery which are widely supported in modern web devices.
