Quark Debuts New Flash Tool
Quark today announced Quark Interactive Designer, its new Flash development application that enables creative professionals to create rich, interactive content such as interactive tours, online ads, and design-driven presentations using QuarkXPress 7. Quark Interactive Designer allows users to design compelling Flash layouts for the Web without any programming skills. The new software enables easy creation of interactive buttons, animations, movies, and dozens of predefined actions for transitioning pages, playing sounds, sliding objects, and creating interactive menus. QID creates SWF files using a “timeline-free” environment–instead allowing users to select from a variety of animation, interactive, and other design options.
