Some time ago I saw a professional business presentation from EA Sports. Before the slideshow started the presenter customized the presentation (live) and added several chapters (introduction, history etc.) through single klicks on the front page. The presentation was calculated and could start after short time.
It consisted of flash animation, video, fotos, some texts, charts etc. As far as I know the charts were feed thorugh an xml-file and that is why they were up-to-date w/o the need of aditional programming.
Let me say that I have very few knowledge on how Director works. Can you please tell me if this EA Sports presentation could have been programmed with Director. Unfortunately, EA Sports cannot provide the presentation as a copy. Do you have some showcases in your mind (showing the steps of customizing the slideshow) or could at least name some agencies that are able to provide help?
Other characteristics of the slideshow: printable pdf-version, no additional hardware necessary (easy-to-go on an USB-drive), interactive links with social media sites (like updates of the slideshow being sent to twitter - not a must!!!)
I am not a big fan of MS PowerPoint and want to find a new, time-saving way for the preparation of modern, innovative slideshows for my company. Really hope you can help with my query.
That is certainly possible to do in Director. I have done quite a few XML driven presentations like that.
Thanks a lot Mike!
Can you name any source or provide a presentation as an example where I can see the user-customizable adaptation/setting for the slideshow? I mean, where to see how the klicks are done and the presentation is "calculated"/starts. I want to use this and show this to my boss.
Next step would be to find an agency/programmer with whom we can make the system specifications/ duties record book.
