Best BOOK -PAGE FLIP program/software?

Best BOOK -PAGE FLIP program/software?

Best BOOK -PAGE FLIP program/software?

(OP)
hi - does anyone have a recommendation for a good cheap page-flipping software that perhaps I can just upload pdfs pr jps and do myself. It is for a 20 page book I designed in indesign and I just want to make it readable (page flipping) on my site. I see a lot of google but it is overwhelming to me and some are expensive. THANK YOU!

RE: Best BOOK -PAGE FLIP program/software?

Are you referring to page imposition software for printing or a SWF gimmick to make it look like you are turning pages on a web page? I would suspect you meant the latter but you mention that you 'want to make it readable', so I am confused.

RE: Best BOOK -PAGE FLIP program/software?


...well, there is this one:

http://www.flashpageflip.com/FreeFPF.asp

...and also indesign cs4 can export to page flipping SWF, but no external navigation is included when exporting to SWF, it just exports to the page trim size in spreads export...

Thank you Andrew and Eugene. Very Helpful.

I like that flashpageflip software you showed me Andrew. And to both, it makes sense InDesign has become more interactive. I will see about getting the new version (I have cs3). EUGENE - i watched the cs4 page flip tutorial - can you also make two facing pages so it looks like a regular book flipping from InDesign? (in the tutorial it is just one page).

Thanka again.

...as mentioned above about CS4:

"...and also indesign cs4 can export to page flipping SWF, but no external navigation is included when exporting to SWF, it just exports to the page trim size in spreads export..."

...so you have to export as spreads so the flip happens on the spine, if you export as single pages then the flip just happens down the middle of that single page...

...when spreads are exported with a first and last page (right hand and left hand) then you automatically get the blanks left of first page, right of back page inserted by the SWF export...
