Also improvements in editor and animation library
Apple today updated its iAd Producer program to version 2.0, just shy of a year since the program debuted. The new version features a new Object List that shows all objects and elements, a Project Validation function that "automatically checks the size and type of image assets, and that pages and components are configured correctly" before submission to Apple, and new animation tools and page objects as well as code-editing improvements and more.
The new version adds more precise control over object position, scale, opacity and other attributes, along with new Map View, Mosaic View, Multi View, Store View and Zoetrope page objects. The new Project Validator checks not only common errors but will identify areas where the project could be optimized, reducing performance issues. It also now has page-by-page controls for image pre-loading.
