Los Angeles InDesign User Group
Creating Interactive Documents Using InDesign
Thursday, October 28 ,2010
Marina del Rey Library, 4533 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey, California 90292
Regular meetings of the Los Angeles InDesign User Group are held bimonthly. But even though we had a meeting last month and will have another next month, we were able to snag Chris Converse for a special meeting this month.
Chris Converse will speak to our group on creating interactive documents using CS5. Learn techniques in InDesign to make your interactive documents ready for prime time. Chris will show you workflows for creating interactivity with nested master pages; how to control video, and how to create non-linear information graphics using the new multi-state animation features of CS5. As with all Los Angeles InDesign User Group meetings, this is free to attend.
Chris is in town to speak at Adobe MAX and for his own "Dreamweaver Book Tour," a seminar specifically targeted at designers who want to learn to create web pages. Those who attend his Dreamweaver Book Tour seminar receive a copy of "Bring Your Web Design to Life." http://www.mogo-media.com/seminars/dreamweaver-design-create-your-website/2010/los-angeles/
