  • Any tips on creating a CD application for PC and Mac

    I discovered AutoPlay Media Studio a little while ago and downloaded the trial version. I must say it appears to live up to all the good press in this board.

    I do have one issue. I am currently quoting on a big CD project that requires the ability to autoplay on both PC and Mac platforms. This product does appear to be perfect for the project as the client requires large amounts of text, a forty minute voiceover, some video and data documents such as PDF's. I understand due to the nature of the AMS that it will not work with Mac's.

    I am interested to find out how some of the users of this product have overcome this problem. Or have you just created two versions. A feature rich AMS version and a html/flash based version for macs. Due to the expense and the learning curve, Director is not a viable option for me.

    Thanks in advance,

    Best look elsewhere. AMS does not produce Mac compatible content. I don't mean to be short, but this issue has been brought up before, and there's really no need to belabor the point.

    I would feel a little bit uncomfortable recommending other software companies' products here, so feel free to e-mail me privately for a few suggestions.

    Best of luck.

      sometimes I offer an html catalogue feature that mirrors the autoplay project. Twice the work, twice the cost.

        Absolutely - as long as the client is aware that building a cross-platform CD will cost twice as much as a single platform. Mac users typically don't understand the reasons behind the decisions for keeping a project on a single platform (almost always Windows).

        There remains what I believe is a GIANT market opportunity for the right company with the right software to address the cross-platform solution.
