Quark Interactive Designer is intended to help QuarkXPress 7 users create vibrant, interactive SWF projects. In Getting Started with Quark Interactive Designer, instructor Ted LoCascio demonstrates how to create multimedia presentations in the versatile SWF format. These projects can be used as standalone presentations or in larger HTML-based websites. Ted begins by reviewing the key principles behind Quark Interactive Designer and covering how to use it in conjunction with QuarkXPress 7. He then progresses to more complex topics, such as how to create interactive layouts, pages, and transitions, and how to integrate multimedia files. Exercise files are included with the tutorials.
