I have to produce an interactive CD-ROM using two videos
produced in PremierePro (one in English, one in Spanish). The CD
will need two menus. A main menu where the viewer can choose
English or Spanish. Then a sub-menu where the viewer can choose to
watch the entire video or jump directly to any part of the
video...like chapter marks on a DVD. The video will need to play
full screen, or as large as possible on the desktop....PC or Mac.
Is all of this possible in Flash? Is there a better authoring
tool for this task? Thanks.
Flash can do this, but in your case making a "real" video-dvd
could be the better choice.
It depends verymuch on what you focus on, is it only computer
users, or do you want o target all that own a home-movie dvd-player
Flash gives you a lot of options, but as it is optimized to
run in webbrowsers, the plugin has to be a small download, and no
specific video-hardware is needed/used it has it's limitations in
video size/quality ratios.
Expecially fullscreen video might be slow with older
computers, as it has to be rendered by the cpu alone.
My choice would be dvd-video or flash depending on the
