Interactivity and Rich Media are terms being tossed around like dust in a sand storm. Both InDesign CS5 and Catalyst CS5 allow you to prototype of create some rather amazing “Flash” projects that don’t use Flash … sort of. In this presentation I will:
– Create a five- page interactive magazine in InDesign that incorporates page turns, a slide show, animated cutlines audio, video and interactivity without ever touching Flash.
– Review the pros and cons and “why” of the use of InDesign and make it really clear that even though you can output to Flash, if you don’t know Flash you are screwed.
– Use many of the tools – Fireworks, Illustrtator, Soundbooth ,Premiere, Adobe Media Encoder and not Flash- in the Master Collection used to create an In Flight Entertainment project that incorporates audio, video, interactivity and motion.
– Review why Catalyst is not exactly “Flash for the Noob”,where the codie fits into this entire process and exactly where Catalyst fits into the RIA workflow..
