    Free SWF Presentation Software

    PowerBullet is a <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> (no ads, nags, restrictions) layout tool for creating web-based electronic brochures and slideshows. It generates Shockwave Flash (SWF) files that can be hosted in a web page or played back with the Flash Player (freely available from Macromedia).

    I've just started playing with this - so far have been impresssed by the highly intuitive interface and general ease of knocking out a .SWF presentation in zero time flat. This one looks like a keeper for me.

    I don't know if you've got a web site, Alan, but when you get to a point where you have a sample you could share, that would be nice. I think I'll give it a try too.

    Re: Free SWF Presentation Software

    I don't have any sites currently active, but once I create something worth looking at, I'll post it either to WWW or here... if it's small enough.

    Edited - I'll have to put a qualification on this recommendation. I first tried it on a machine running XP/IE6 and was suitably impressed. However, running on my own 98SE/IE5 it fails to produce <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>. The site FAQ acknowledges this problem. It appears IE5.5 is a minimum, and there are some probs with 98/ME.

    Re: Free SWF Presentation Software

    Well here's a real amateurish effort I got working without much effort. The program has seen some development, now at version 1.35. But it's still a bit quirky on 98, which the author acknowledges and is working on. For a <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>bie though, this is looking rather hopeful.

    Hey, that's pretty slick, Alan. BTW, just so you know - the HTM file in the zip is in it's own directory and doesn't seem to work unless it's in the same folder as the SWF. Fired right up as soon as I put the two files together. Thanks for sharing!

    <hr>the HTM file in the zip is in it's own directory and doesn't seem to work unless it's in the same folder as the SWF<hr>Sorry. That's just my ignorance with Zip Genius - another new proggie I'm just coming to grips with. On my HD, each "project" gets its own folder containing (among other things) the .htm, .swf and self-contained Flash .exe files.
