Hi.. flash things has been removed from Indesign 2020, so how can i export swf file from Indesign 2020. is there any substitute for exporting SWF. Thank you
Are you aware that Flash Player will be closed down by the end of 2020? You may need to find a substitute for SWF, not a way of making them.
Use InDesign's Publish Online, in5 or FXL ePub (all these run on HTML5, Flash is obsolete).
I am completely new to this but I am trying out animation in indesign now. But I really don't know which file type to export as when selecting publish online. And I have no idea what in5 is :S Can you help?
InDesign is NOT the tool for animation. Not even slightly. Even less now that you cannot use SWF files in InDesign, nor anywhere else after 3 months from now. Suggest you reconsider your plans.
Publish Online is something you export to directly. See https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/indesign/using/publish-online.html
in5 is a commercial add-on. Google will find it.
Thank you. I found IN5 and see it is quite expencive. I will check out the other parts of my adobe pack if there are options already included. It is just for simple banner ads with a little animation, so nothing advanced. That is why I thought about using indesign initially.
Abolutely not for InDesign. Not for banner ads, not for animation.
Since SWF is going away the only format for simple animation on a web site now is GIF. One tool that can make animated GIF (a special kind of GIF) is Photoshop, which is often the preferred choice for web banners too.
SWF is dead. What exactly do you need and maybe we can help.
i want to make swf file from indesign with interactive buttons. than k u for reply
You can install 2019 version in parallel to 2020 and do that "dirty" things.
"i want to make swf file from indesign with interactive buttons. than k u for reply" That may be what you want, but you need to change your plan today. Flash Player is going away FOREVER in less than a year. SWF is really, really dead, and that is why InDesign stopped making it. (Imagine if it still made a PDF and suddenly at the end of this year all your work stopped without warning!) No, give up SWF completely.
Those who have the Creative Cloud Suite and want to produce animations for things like social media ads etc, should have a look at Adobe Animate, After Effects and Premiere. For animations in documents try InDesign's Publish Online or (at extra cost) the InDesign plugin, in5
