I have content to burn to a CD-r , a book loads of PDF's. I want to make a nice 'shiny' autorun menu dialog page that pops up when you put the CD in. then nice shiny dialog splash screen, you can click a button to open the index page to the PDF book.
I have made my nice shiny splash screen with button, and edited the butons properties to refer to the file location of the index.html I want the button to open.
But here is where I hang up, I would expect to find some option to import all the files for my CD, all the PDFs , or what ever content it may be. import it into the project folder, then I would expect the program could build the autorun information relative to all the PDF's in the project folder, so when you publish the project it builds a output folder with all the autorun data files in it , along with the disk 'real' content (html's , pdf's etc)
so that when you click on the button on the splash screen, the links are all correct and relative to the CD root.
What I dont understand is how to tell Autoplay media 8 how to do this .
when I am creating the project and link the button to my index.html file from somewhere on my harddrive X:\BookData\Pages\index.html , I can see that when I publish it is importing this file index.html into the output folder. But it does not import all the hundreds of other html pages in my book folder (X:\BookData\Pages\page1.html ..page2.html...page3.html...page4.html....page-n.html) that this index.html page relates to relative to itself.
I publish and it publishes to this new folder i created for the output
I can then click on
opens pretty splash page, but button didnt open index.html until I figured I had to manually move this file into here:
and copy all my books files from other original location on hard drive (X:\BookData\Pages\) into this new output folder F:\MyBooksFolder\AutoPlay\Docs\ so that links on index.html are relative & correct at the same level
Im sure Im missing a trick here, and should not have to fork about manually moving files around into folder the publish created, and Im doing it all wrong. Is there a way I can tell Autoplay Media Studio where all my original book files are and import the whole folder across along with and not just the index.html that the button is linked to
that would seem logical to me to start a new project and tell it where all my source files are to be copied from , then designate the output folder.
Can anyone offer any how-to's on this or links to tutorial that covers this.
