Impressario for Director11
Integration New Media has released Impressario, an Xtra extension PDF utility for Adobe Director 11. The software allows users to integrate PDF files into Director movies, even behind other objects. Personalized proposals, data sheets, or custom presentations can be created from within Director, based on templates built in Acrobat or LiveCycle Designer. Original page layouts and fonts are preserved, including the in-line graphics, text wrapping, and columns. Users can also produce customized graphical interface buttons, or add automatic scrollbars and bookmarks.
Impressario is available as a full version or light version, with prices of $440 and $300, respectively. The light version lacks Shockwave deployment, PDF downloading from URLs, manual form control entry and PDF creation/customization at runtime. Both versions require Adobe Director 11 and work on Mac or Windows platforms.
