NetPlay Software has released Instant Demo v. 2.0, an easy-to-use Windows application for making demos, presentations, and training tools for software applications. As you run your application, Instant Demo records the screen activity and mouse movements in real time. It's easy to add text, sound, images, and hotspots to your demo. The resulting Flash presentations can be played on any operating system that supports Flash 4.0 or newer.
Instant Demo uses innovative technology to produce animated Flash movies that require only 0.1MB of disk space per minute of animation. With its emphasis on creating compact presentations, customer support demos can be easily attached to emails. Its compact size and ability to stream the playback of movie content make it ideal for creating dynamic web presentations.
Instant Demo provides a host of special effects that will attract immediate interest to your movie. Examples include a zoom effect at the beginning of your presentation, animated highlights, and a fade-in effect for your annotated text. Add mouse hotspots and customized playback controls, and your demo becomes fully interactive.
You can record live sound as you capture your desktop activity. You can also record or insert sound files when editing your demo. There are even mouse and keyboard sound effects that you can include. A variety of annotated text headers and talk balloons add additional punch to your presentations.
It's easy to pause and resume a recording session. The undo and redo features even work from one editing session to the next. You can immediately preview your movie edits, with no annoying pre-rendering required. The program even constructs HTML web page templates for your demo.
New features in version 2.0 include sound recording and voice annotation, Internet streaming for immediate playback of movie content, more hotspot and annotated text styles, new Flash effects, and improved movie compression.
Whether you're a software developer who needs to create a self-running demo that prospects can view with their favorite web browser, a tech support person who needs to reduce support costs by providing self-study tutorials, or a software trainer who needs to create compelling Flash movies that explain how to use an application, Instant Demo has the tools that you need.
Instant Demo v. 2.0 runs under Windows 98/Me/NT4/2000/XP, costs $199(US) for a single-user license, and may be purchased securely online at http://www.instant-demo.com/. Multi-user licenses are available. You can download a free trial version from the same web address.
