Everyone, I've been brainstorming different ideas for making our documentation more interactive. For example, instead of adding callouts to a screenshot, I'm looking at ways to enable users to click different parts of the screenshot to see what they are. I'd also like to consider adding *subtle* animation to make the our documentation more interesting. My initial thought is to create all the interactivity in Flash and import the SWF files into FrameMaker.
Our current workflow is to author all our content in FrameMaker 7.2. Afterward, we import the FM files into MadCap Flare for online Help and Acrobat 8.0 for PDF. Does anyone have any experience using Flash with FrameMaker? What are the pitfalls to look out for? Is this even a good idea to consider? This project is still in the concept stage, so I'm looking for any suggestions or opinions you can provide.
