In my various searches online with tutorials, etc. it appears that InDesign CC supports creating image slideshows that then export into ePub 3.0 where they can be viewed and interacted-with on mobile devices. An example of this type of guidance is this: InDesign CS 5.5 Publishing ePUBs to the iBook with Video - YouTube
Anyway, I have followed what I think are all of the guidance steps to create a multi-state object for a series of images and then go into folio overlays and convert them to a slideshow that can be interacted with. When I preview they all work just fine but when I then export as ePub3.0 they are static images with each image overlayed on top of the other.
I have tried calling Adobe Technical support and they are saying that InDesign CC does not support this type of EPub export, but again all of the online tutorials, etc. indicate that it does. I am very confused and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
When I export my book to ePub, the images and captions appear to export as raster images together so I'm thinking it's something to do with the object export functions, but beyond that I don't know how to fix this issue.
I would definitely appreciate any help anyone can offer on this matter. Thank you very much in advance.
Everything I know indicates that multi-state slide shows are not possible in ePubs.
I looked at the tutorial you linked to and there is no mention in there of slide shows.
Can you be clearer as to where you got this information. What time in the video are you referring to?
I'm sorry... You're right... The link I provided was not the right one... This is the right one: InDesign CS 5.5 Digital Publishing Suite to iPad, Android and Blackberry - YouTube
The time on the video would be around 2:45.
This is another example (the whole video) Digital Publishing With InDesign CC: Slideshows - YouTube
My ignorance may be showing here because I'm starting to realize that ePub and Digital Publishing Suite may well be two different things... But I am still confused on how the resulting digital book is distributed to consumers if it's not made available through Google Play, iBooks, etc.
My colleague and I have been trying to make this work for some time following several tutorials to no avail. But it may well be that we were barking up the wrong tree to begin with.
Thank you for responding.
