Flippagemaker PDF to Flash is an excellent free tool that you can use to create as many Flash-based electronic books as you need from existing PDF files. This free utility comes with no use restrictions, and creates SWF files in three different and efficient ways – using its batch conversion capabilities, through the “Hot Directory” mode, and directly from the command line.
Either way, the results are stunningly fast and of a high standard. Do not let the program’s name fool you – there are no flip page capabilities built into this free product. The slightly misleading “Create Flipping Book from PDF” button in the batch conversion interface will gladly take you to a web page where you can learn more (and buy) FlipBook Creator, Flippagemaker’s star product. Thus, what you will be getting when using Flippagemaker PDF to Flash is a SWF file that you will be able to open and read using your Internet browser or any dedicated SWF player, and - therefore - embed into any HTML file as you would do with any other Flash video.
The advantage here is mainly “how” you can go from PDF to Flash using this tool, rather than the final product itself. Together with the batch conversion mode and the command line option, the above-mentioned “Hot Directory” mode will allow you (and any other user with access to the folder in question) to trigger the conversion process just by simply dropping the corresponding PDF files into the folder or directory of your choice. This may come really useful when dealing with directories accessed by a number of users – as soon as they put a new PDF file in there, this will be converted into SWF automatically. An easy and free way of automating your PDT-to-SWF conversion process.
