Flash CS5 Projector Files for CD-ROM Publishing

Adobe Flash Creative Suite 5’s ability to include full-featured video, audio, and graphics has made Flash CS5 quite a popular choice for creating CD-ROM based presentations, e-brochures, learning materials, and interactive application installers.

When packaging for a CD-ROM, consider that a SWF file alone may not be enough, especially because users might not have a standalone version of Flash Player installed on their computers. For this reason, you can package movies for CD-ROM as projectors.

To create standalone projectors for Windows or Mac, select the Windows Projector (.exe) or Macintosh Projector check boxes on the Formats tab of the Publish Settings dialog box. Projectors are created when you publish, along with other formats you’ve chosen. These projectors can then be copied to and distributed on a CD or a DVD.

Because the projector contains Flash Player, a user doesn’t need to install a program to view your movie. Projectors are created as EXE files for Windows or APP files for the Mac.
