InDesign Interactivity & Animation (334)
Quickly and easily create interactive and animated graphics without all the unpleasantness of working in Flash. You will learn how to use InDesign to create animated and interactive projects such as on-line advertising and infographics for Flash-driven content in web browsers and PDFs. You will create many real-world projects with surprising ease and speed.
This class focuses on InDesigns new Interactive Workspace.
Why InDesign?InDesign has been most publishers tool of choice for many years and Adobe wants to keep it that way. Building on their considerable experience with animation and interactive software, Adobe has added to InDesign CS5+ a powerful set of interactive tools. These new tools transform InDesign into a powerful cross-media layout tool for both print and interactive projects.
TJP&A has carefully examined InDesigns capabilities and compared them to alternatives. We conclude this addition to InDesigns already strong layout, typographic, and drawing capabilities is a significant development. InDesigns new interactive features not only meet most publishers needs, but do so in a way that non-programmers can readily learn.
This is an important development for those who have found Flash is not their cup of tea or that Flash development takes too long and costs too much. These new capabilities are an economical and effective way to achieve every publishers vital need to maintain future relevance.

A sad note: InDesign produces SWF files, which work fine on desktop browsers, but do not work on tablets like the iPad. If your projects require animations that work with both desktop and tablet browsers see Rich Media with Edge Animate. We are sad because this class was a lot of fun for both students and teacher. We hope that Adobe will eventually catch up to current standards.
