Interactive Animated PDFs with InDesign CS5

PDFs do not support the animation feature in InDesign CS5. But PDFs DO support SWF files. So, it’s just a matter of making your animation into a SWF file and placing it in InDesign before exporting to PDF.

  • Make your animation in InDesign, or Flash.
  • Place the SWF file into InDesign.
  • Export InDesign file as PDF.
  • Animation will be retained!
  • SWF files with interactivity (buttons…etc) will work too. So you can build in an interactive animation!
  • Dropping an animated InDesign file into an InDesign file to export doesn’t work.
