Our favorite program ArchiCAD, produces all the QTVR's VR's and multimedia any one could possibly want. But what Apps are available to create that Killer presentation?
What are the best QT authoring tools available to present them in an attractive and professional Interactive CD?
Meander is a start, but come on, it looks like a Jr High project. Not quite up the task for a professional look and feel.
So I have been looking at a mid priced and ease of use solution - Live Stage Pro (Mac & PC) versions by Totally Hip Software. $500.00 SRP
I also read about creating your own QT skins in the Apple help forum. Tried it, and I am after all, not a programmer so with a little more research found, Tatoo more my speed (a drag and drop application) it is a Mac OS X QT skinmaker - very nice shareware for $23.00.
Now for buttons and other stuff to create that killer multimedia presentation. I saw an flash add on at Objects on line. I assume this is also a possible solution?
Should I go shell out the dough for Live Stage Pro, which by the way price is not too critical if it works and I can use it with out attending classes at my local art college.
By the way being an old hand around here I do have a copy of Abvents "Kowabunga" - no longer published. Too bad maybe Graphisoft R&D could resurect it as meander -- the next generation.
I prefer Macromedia Flash for a variety of reasons:
Flash is run through an HTML interface so it can easily display on ANY platform that has an HTML viewer and the flashplayer installed
Flash allows for multiple image, and multimedia formats including .jpg, .tif, .png, .mov
Flash will allow you to make a CD that you can insert into any windoze based O/S and autorun your presentation
Flash allows you to program your presentation in a timeline format with multiple layers, and 4 tiers of organization; for example you could have a 'movie' with several buttons that allow the viewer to proceed through different paths of a walkthrough.[/ist]
