    swf into pdf

    grahamb91590954

      Hi there

       

      This is my first post, so please be kind

       

      I I am trying to create a pdf with page curl as it is easier for clients to view a design than in a conventional pdf.

       

      I have been following the steps in this rather helpful video http://tv.adobe.com/watch/csinsider-design/indesign-creating-interactive-pdfs-with-page-tu rn-and-flash-animations/ and can create a working swf file.  I then place it in the document and export it as a pdf as per the instructions and the pdf it creates is blank  

       

      Has anyone had any success with this?  Any pointers/common errors/stupid user issues to be aware of.  I am new to In Design too, so maybe I am doing something wrong?

       

      If all else fails how do I contact the guy who made the video?

       

      Thanks

          You will need to use Acrobat to insert a Flash file (pagecurl swf) into a pdf and have it function properly. There are some alternatives, send the standalone swf, but this requires recipient to have Flash Player to view. Upload swf and html to a site, if you have access, then send a link.
