InDesign for Interactive PDFs

PDFs are useful things, not only for print documents, but also for online information. A fairly common design task is that of reproducing a company brochure that’s available in print, on the web.
Where you have a document that’s going to be viewed electronically, PDF can offer a lot more than just static pages of text and images; you can also add interactivity, links, and embedded video.

Indesign even lets you create page transitions within PDF documents. In this tutorial we’re going to learn how to embed video into our documents and set up a Poster image alternative to use when the user want to print the file.
