Just need a little help here, I'm probably being stupid but there does not seem to be an answer that hits me in the face. Though I am stupid.
I'm creating a book with (when it's gone to print) will have tracing paper (semi transparent) pages in between each page.
I have been producing page curl documents for the client to view in a simulated way how the book looks.
I have been (at the same time) making presentation stills to give him a view of what it would look like in 3 quarter view of how the transparent pages will look in a dummy photoshopped page.
This takes a lot of time to achieve with a degree of realism. Although I can tell the client, this is how it's going to look, I would love to do it with the page curl effect.
What I mean by that is as I am flipping a page to a semi transparent page (tracing paper page) you see the page below frosted then as the page flips the page below is revealed 100%.
Just like you would with a book.
I have exported a swf file then reimported back into Indesign then attempted to create an interactive page with transparency. But it still shows the paper page.
I then attempted to put a newly exported flash doc into flash then reduce the opacity on one of the DPS's to see if that made a difference. Page just goes all strobe like flashing on an off like it is having a fit.
Is this possible?
If not I'll continue to do it the way I've been doing it.
Thank you in advance.
I walked away from my computer, had a cup of tea then thought just make a blurred 50% opacity version of the same DPS page then re import it back into indesign.
It's not perfect but it give the effect I'm almost after.
If anyone has a more refined idea or a plugin which cuts out this step I'm all ears. :-)
