    PDF to Flash converter?

    Hi friends...

    I have been exploring an easy way to convert pdf files to flash movies with animations like flipping pages etc., buttons for zoom, search etc.

    I tried using the open source pdf2flash, but it results in a scrollbar-less flash document which auto forwards. it doesn't even have fwd/back/stop buttons.

    then i tried out adobe's own flash paper. Unfortunately, no matter what i did, it allows users to print the files. it also results in loss of internal hyperlinks.

    also used print2flash, same problem with this software.

    i saw an advertisement of a software called pdf-flasher which seems to fulfill all my requirements : http://www.pdf-flasher.net but the download doesn't work

    any help on this problem?

    FlashPaper I believe allows you to put passwords on the files and allows you to prevent printing. I've used it before and I remember it had these options. I'll check it out again.

    I tried using the options again... but they really don't work.

    there is a pdf security dialog box which allows me to choose what kinda security features i want... but when i convert the document to flash, none of those security features work. I thnk they are meant to work only when you convert any document to pdf and not swf.


    Now i am contemplating if its possible to create a kiosk like interface in flash, which will allow me to embed a pdf into a flash movie so that the pdf opens with its usual security features.

    Take a look at pressmo.com, its a online conversion service, I like desktop solution better, so I now use http://www.xflip.com/ to convert pdf to flash with flipping pages.
