Indigo Rose Software announces the immediate availability of AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0. Featuring a visual drag-and-drop environment, AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0 makes rapid multimedia authoring accessible to everyone. Using the included templates, even absolute beginners can quickly create popular projects like CD-ROM business cards, computer based training (CBT) applications, CD autorun menus, custom web browsers and interactive presentations.
Simply drag and drop your rich-media files, such as video, audio, images, Flash and HTML onto “pages” and arrange them with the WYSIWYG editor. Once the visual design is in place, adding interactivity is just as easy. The new Action Wizard gives you hundreds of actions to choose from, including sending email, playing music, running applications, browsing web sites and manipulating video playback.
While designed to be quick to learn, AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0 is powerful enough to be a rapid-development alternative to traditional programming tools. The fast and efficient Lua scripting engine offers all of the functionality expected by professional developers, from functions and control structures to arithmetic operators and associative arrays. It’s an exceptionally flexible system that is perfect for accelerated development.
To jump-start the creative process, AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0 comes with hundreds of backgrounds, image elements, sound effects and full project templates. Other new features include built-in CD burning, page transition effects, real-time audio mixing, support for plugin objects and actions, an as-you-type spell checker and the ability to publish as a web/email-ready single-file executable.
