Once you have designed your publication
to your satisfaction you will want to create a version which you can pass
on to other computer users on CD Rom, DVD, or create Flash SWF to display on the internet so that they
can view your publication without needing Opus. This process is called publishing.
You can create a stand-alone Windows
.EXE file which you can then combine into a setup program which the user
can run to install it. You can create files to go onto a CD Rom or to be
burnt onto a DVD-video for playback on a normal domestic DVD player (as
opposed to a PC DVD drive).
You can create an Adobe Flash file for the
internet or you can create an internet version which uses our plug-in technology
which extends the functionality of your internet browser to support fully-interactive
You can even convert your publication to video file or a screensaver.
For obvious reasons not all the functions provided by Opus are available
in all these formats - video doesn't support any interactivity for example.
The fonts and other resources
you use in your publication are automatically included and even the video
can be embedded in the file so no-one can use it separately.
Once published you can use the
distribution wizard to create a setup program or the upload wizard if you
want to upload your program to the web.
No royalties or licencing is required for you to distribute the publications you make with Opus Pro once published.
