Flip Book options

Post by isonychia » 11 May 2011, 05:54

I just got done looking at the features video of the new quark.

I see that it's able to create ebook formats and app's for digital editions(books) etc.
Can it also create a digital flipbook?
If so I have some other questions I can ask later. i.e. is it searchable through all archives of a publications editions ( a weekly pub), create links automatically, creates html version for non flash hardware etc etc....

Iso.

Hi Iso,
I think you need to define please what you mean by "Flipbook", otherwise that is very hard to answer. I know of dozens of online services who call their exported format a "flipbook" and they all differ.

Thanks
Matthias

What I'm looking for is similar to the following:(probably the easiest way to exlain it)

http://www.mydigitalpublication.com/pub ... m=2237&l=1

I work for a weekly publication.
I need to be able to take my PDF files and run them through a program that will create a flipping style digital edition with ALL the options in the above link.
Of high importance is:
An archiving system

Searchable through all archives.
Automatic linking and manual linking
version for ipad compatability
etc
Thanks
iso.

Hi Iso,
yes, of course you can create such deliverables, just the page flip effect isn't there (you'd have to use a different transition). And exporign Flash out of QuarkXPress even gives you text as vectors, and not as page previews. However, you'd have to design the page navigation yourself.
For iPad, well you can't use Flash. As it is a layout rich export, you can use the App Studio for QuarkXPress. Again, here, the naviagion will be different. it will be more iPad-typical (pinch, swipe) andnot like in the example you linked.
For archive searching, you'd have to build that yourself or think of another solution, as of course QuarkXPress' Flash Export as well as QuarkXPress' App Export give you a file and not a web portal.
Linking is possible for all export options, just not sure what you mean by "Automatic linking".

Best regards
Matthias
