Summary

From creating interactive PDFs to full-fledged Flash sites, the expanded capabilities of InDesign now make it possible to design projects that go beyond print, into the world of Web and interactive. Designing for Interactivity with InDesign CS5 is the first book of its kind, expressly devoted to the interactive capabilities of InDesign CS5 and their use in creating documents destined for output to interactive PDF and Flash SWF.Both a reference book, with sections broken out by topic, and a training guide, with real-world exercises and/or projects provided for each chapter, the book includes exercise files available for download on an associated Web site. It goes beyond simply teaching the function of InDesign to familiarize readers with the basics of Web and interactive design, audio and video compression and conversion, and the fundamentals of animation. Power-user tips are peppered throughout as are productivity tools and techniques. An entire section is dedicated to best practices for successful output to interactive PDF, Flash SWF and Flash Professional, with how-to's for using Acrobat and Flash Professional to extend the InDesign-generated files. There's even a section on Type and Layout making this a soup-to-nuts guide on the InDesign-to-interactive workflow. * Full-color illustrations, step-by-step instruction, and real-world exercises deliver hands-on training * Includes essential design principles for interactive media as well as practical InDesign techniques for execution * Tutorial media is provided on the companion Web site
