[Pro] Creating PDF version

Can someone tell me how, or if it is even possible to take a site created in Pro 5:5 and make a fully functional PDF version to use on an iPad offline? I have created an online catalog for a business and need to be able to go throughout the catalog with clients.

You might want to look at Adobe Acrobat. I’m doing something similar, only in reverse. I have a client with an interactive pdf (w/video) made with Acrobat (for offline viewing) and he wants to convert it to HTML/CSS.

There was a thread here - not that long ago - about creating a working HTML site for viewing offline on an iPad or similar.

I can’t remember the conclusion but I will look for the thread.

PDF is pretty much brain-dead. It’ll work in a very basic sense, but I certainly wouldn’t want to use that option if I could possibly help it.

As mentioned late on in that multi-year-spanning thread, you can use an app such as Goodreader to store your entire site folder on your iPad. The easiest way to get it into GoodReader is to zip the site folder to transfer then unzip it in the app afterwards. Browsing is done within GoodReader.

That’s the best traditional option, but there are other ways to go. I’m currently exploring CircularFLO, an EPUB-generating tool that works with InDesign but (thanks to its extremely cooperative and experiment-friendly developer) can now also embed any ‘self-contained’ HTML & resources within a fixed-layout (FXL) EPUB document. My primary reason, other than sheer curiosity, is to be able to put my interactive panoramic photography into ebooks, but it should work for all sorts of tasks as long as the HTML doesn’t try to make any references to anything external.

The workflow goes like this: make a regular page layout using Adobe InDesign (version CS6 or newer), use CircularFLO to add your custom HTML to the page and make any other ebook-specific additions, then export an EPUB using CircularFLO. InDesign’s own fixed-layout EPUB abilities are still pretty basic even in the current revision of CC.

This is pretty damn new stuff, but it’s technically valid. It works well and any decent FXL EPUB-compatible e-reader (iBooks, Adobe Digital Editions 4, Kobo, and others) will take it in its stride. See http://CircularFLO.com for info.

Hi Keith,

still am thinking about your page-project and your nice interactive panoramas.

So assumed, I’d like to “test” them in one of my page-projects, I’d need to purchase this krpano player license? (I’d need a nature or park situation, something fitting into: http://backstage.kimmich-digitalmedia.com/templates/walk-through-the-park/index.html )

A question :

“Why do you run the flash version and not the HTML5 (or do you for mobile devices?)” - You perhaps should know that I’m the iFrame lover on board.

Cheers

Thomas

Hi Thomas,
You don’t need to have your own player license to host a panorama I make, my authoring license includes third-party deployment. There are also other options around, including a basic but functional HTML5-only open-source pano player. I’d love to know how things work in your projects, please feel free to grab the example below and try it:

(Note to all: this immersive panorama image is my copyright but feel free to play with it for experimentation purposes. If anyone wants a panorama to actually deploy publicly just let me know and I’ll find you something suitable.)

This made with a different final-stage production tool, Pano2VR. It’s an equivalent in many ways to KRPano, but I won’t go into the details here. :slight_smile:

Pano2VR output will run using HTML5 if the browser is capable of HTML5 3D or WebGL, and Flash if not. KRPano still defaults to Flash if available and HTML5 if not. With mobile devices it’s clear-cut and it just works. With modern desktop browsers the Pano2VR output will prefer HTML5 while the KRPano will prefer Flash.

Hi Keith,

thanks for this - I’ll have it a go on this as soon as I find a lil bit of time and report back - promised.

So did you solve this crashing on mobile (I remember another thread where this was mentioned) or does it still need some fixing?

Cheers

Thomas

on Xcode it seems to work

The crashing is purely down to me loading too many of these things into the page: a couple of regular ‘full screen-ready’ panoramas, a multi-node tour example, and a two-up VR headset pano example.

I’m redesigning things to avoid this, but it’s much more of a design logic consideration. And I’m playing around with making my own CMS for managing the panoramas, which may or may not be how I produce the site. :slight_smile:

The example panorama will work fine on all iOS devices typically in use today. Original iPads and the iPhone 3 or earlier would struggle, but they’d be a problem for lots of other stuff too.
