WELCOME FLIPPY!

Here we go with our last project! Whew! Our team is merged to prepare for this big project. The first time I saw a flip book, I was astonished by the way a magazine or book converted to a realistic one using computer. the only difference is that you’re reading from a computer. Unlike a typical pdf file, you just flip the pages and need not have to run through the pages up and down. We search how to make a flip book. We found a lot of sample flip books and some sample codes but they are commercialized. So, we ended up using a open source program application, MZ3 Megazine, where we can use in meeting up with the specification given to us by Sir Joel. We use this as the building block of our program. We extended it by attaching audio, video, text and links to the Megazine’s code. We also added plug-in in downloading/ saving the pages into pdf file. The application that we made already converts a word document into pdf file and use this to create a flip book that generates a .swf file(Flash) and .html file.
