Bring PDFs to Life with Adobe Presenter [VIDEO]

In a previous post, I blogged about how to embed an Adobe Captivate simulation in a PDF in order to supplement a static PDF and bring it to life using Rich Media.

Since then many people have asked if it’s possible to do the same using an Adobe Presenter project.

The answer is yes, however the process is a bit more complicated because of the nature of an Adobe Presenter project. In other words, while Captivate publishes a single Flash file, Adobe Presenter publishes multiple files and thus the key to embedding a Presenter project is to consolidate all these files in Adobe Acrobat.

In case you are new to Adobe Presenter, here’s how we define it on “Adobe Presenter enables you to rapidly create high-impact Adobe Flash presentations and eLearning courses from PowerPoint.”

If you want to experience what is like to watch an Adobe Presenter presentation, I recently posted this how-to entitled Using the plug-in for Outlook for Sharing Large files.

Enough said. In this short video (00:13:10), I go over the steps to properly embed an Adobe Presenter project in a PDF using Adobe Acrobat 9. Click the image below to launch the video in a new window.
