Chapter 13. Interactive PDF > Acrobat PDF Only

Acrobat PDF Only

That said, the key thing to understand about InDesign’s interactive features is that they only work when you export the file to PDF. (Or, in the case of basic hyperlinks, when you package the document for GoLive—which creates XML that GoLive can turn into HTML.) And many of the features only work when you specifically export a PDF 1.5 (Acrobat 6) file. Exporting in prior versions won’t work—Acrobat 4 and 5 had some rich-media support, but it wasn’t until Acrobat 6 that it started to really get good, including:

  • Greatly improved abilities for handling sounds and movies, including internal support for file formats such as SWF (“Flash”), MPEG, and AIFF

  • The ability to embed movies in the PDF rather than saving them as external, linked files (this is particularly important when you want to protect the movies from unauthorized copying)

  • Support for non-RGB movies and posters, and nonrectangular posters (more on what posters are later in this chapter)

  • Support for interactive objects on the same page as transparency effects (such as feathering and opacity), even though the media objects cannot themselves involve transparency
