I really hope that this isn't a silly question, but I am working on a new website and had this thought that PP would make sensational flash banners for advertising ......Is it possible and if so how do you adjust the dimensions of the slide to create banner sizes.
Thank you very much if you respond and guide me.
I was intrigued by your idea of making a website banner with Producer, so I gave it a try. You can see it here:
The entire white part of the banner is made in Producer, including the static text to the left. It's set to loop continuously which is probably irritating, but I just wanted to try your idea.
No, I don't have my speakers on, and yes, the banner was made with the first 4.0 version. Now that the guys who brought the banner idea up in the first place have seen it can be done, I need to delete that page from the website. I was just using it as a sandbox to play with the banner idea. Someday my ship will come in and I will be able to buy a new computer with enough juice to run the latest and greatest version of Producer. Just hope I'm on the dock when it comes into port.
I'll be taking down that webpage tomorrow, but if anyone stumbles on this thread later, just know you can make a web page banner using Producer. Just change the aspect ratio in Producer to Custom and put in the dimensions you want, then build your banner show. Create a flash file and it's ready to add to your website.

Bravo Anna - This is nice to know. Thanks for sharing that bit of information with us!
Anna, could you share the dimensions of the banner with us ? I really like this idea.

Don't rush out and buy new speakers! There is no audio attached to the banner. The popping noise Barbara referred to is made because I set the banner show to loop continuously on the web site and when it loops, it pops. I made the banner using the first version of 4.0, and Barbara says the popping noise problem has been corrected in later versions.
The banner can be made like any other show. Mine is very blah because I was just testing to see if it could be done. In Producer, go to Show > Show Options > Aspect Ratio. Change it to Custom, and put in whatever numbers will work for your webpage. The banner shown is [b]1400 x 300[/b]. You may have to experiment to find the width that works best on your web page. When you've finished, create a flash show output and load it on your website.
