It is possible to create an entire ebook within Macromedia's Flash program and save it as an exe file(flash projector). Has anyone done this? There was a fantastic animated ebook about Shrek which was created by Dreamworks for the Hewlett Packard site. Has anyone else seen it?
Very late answer but hey, it's like never too late...
I do Flash in most of my Ebooks with Compiler. I did few complete Flash ebooks with a single index.html file that only called the Flash .swf files. Actually it is amazing how the Compiler works with Flash. Just think of the Load Movie statement... Well Compiler supports it with no problem. It can give a lot more security features as well.

And the MultiMedia aspects right within the Compiler's features...

Can someone help me ;-)
What I'm trying to do is to get Active eBook compiler to pull up a .swf filed just like an MPG from a CD. Let me back up just a second. I have a lot of swif files that are quite big. What I'm doing is creating an eBook CD were people can click on a link and a page will pop-up and the video will begin to play. I have no problem putting a swif file in the eBook but my problem is its jest to big. So I need to put a the swift files in a different folder and have the eBook access those files. That way a person doesn't have to wait for ever for the eBook to load. To give you an example of how I would like the eBook to work you can go to my web site and click on streaming audio and video. I have made eBook's on CD that play MPGs but I would like to use .swf files because they are much smaller. My web site ishttp://www.deepthings.org.If you have any ideas on how I can do this please let me know

You can call .swf files within the compiler in many ways, but you have to call your files within an existing HTML file in your compiler. You can also use buttons within a .swf file that will call any other .swf files from the CD using the LoadMovie command; the LoadMovie command is your best bet cose you can call as many files independently as the CD can support... But again the command has to be called with an ActionScript LoadMovie code (Flash, Corel Rave or any ActionScript coder).
Unfortunately I don't know if it can be called with an ACTIV script code... Sunil or Storyman would help more in this area...
Hope it helps a bit.

This is slightly OT, but it pertains to the Flash Player. The other day while perusing the Adobe site, I came across a page about the Adobe/Macromedia merger. There was a short blurb about the Acorbat Reader and Flash Player.
What was clear is Adobe's intention of melding the two players within the next year. If (or when) it happens it's going to be interesting to see what happens to the applications Acrobat and Flash.
