Have you been asked to produce the web banner as a .swf file, or is it your choice of format?
My client needs a flash file or a html file.
Until today, i always used this option (.swf) to produce interactive pdf files, as I'm a graphic designer for print and not for web
Swf is not the way to go these days, many devices can't read this format. Have a look at Adobe Edge Animate (free with Adobe CC), makes web banners relatively easy to produce: e.g. https://helpx.adobe.com/edge-animate/how-to/build-web-banner.html
Thank you very much for your advice
My client works with these formats, even if it's not really current today.
And as i don't know a lot about all this, I think i'll manage an other way if I can't figure it out (Besides, I work with InDesign CS6 and not CC )
My question was really about being able to watch my 4 pages with animations in 1 .swf file. Which may be not possible perhaps. Maybe it's simply not made for this application.
Thanks again for your time.
Are you producing a web banner or an animated PDF? If it's the latter, have a look at this book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Creating-Animations-Adobe-Indesign-Step/dp/0134176111/ref=tmm_pap_ title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1442917354&sr=8-8
It's a web banner. And it's for this afternoon
No problem with animated pdf. I've done several already. My problem is really about my .swf file which doesn't show every page of my indesign animations
But I'll find a way !
For a swf to progress beyond the first page of an Indesign document, you would need something like a button that navigates to other pages. For a linear, non-interactive presentation like a web banner, you would need to contain all elements on the first page. Use the timing panel to coordinate multiple transistions and animations.
Thank you Jeffrey, that's the idea I had too (to put every element on the same page).
I hoped there was an easier solution
Thanks again !
Have a nice day.
You could export the doc as an FLA, open it in FlashPro and make the transitions on the Flash timeline. In that case you could even export as HTML5 as long as the transitions are not coded with ActionScript. Obviously you would have to be familiar with FlashPro.
