I've got a project on my mind that I really wanna create and after hours of google searching I can't seem to find the answer for me!
What I'm trying to create is an interactive, animated pop-up book (or at least have the styling of a pop-up book)
Is After Effects capable of this? Or can I create my animated content and then export it to a different Adobe Title to make it interactive...
I want to be able to do something where a user can turn the page with the click of a mouse to flip to the next animated page in the story.
Any insight on how I can bring my project to life would be greatly appreciated!!! I just can't afford to buy the whole Adobe Suite just yet so am trying to narrow it down to one or two titles to get this project underway.
Thanks so much for any and all the help in advance!
Jayson is right that at least some of this will be done in Flash---at least the parts that add interactivity. It's very common to create movies in After Effects and then put those movies together in an interactive way in Flash. (Here's a page that summarizes some of the ways that After Effects and Flash work together.) There are even some new features in InDesign CS4 for creating interactive books with Flash.
We can help you to make the individual movies here, but the interactivity questions will all be best handled on the Flash forum.
Thanks so much for all your help!
