Plugin adds 3D PDF interactive views inside PowerPoint® slide presentations.
London, UK, June 29, 2012 – As part of the PDF3D® technical publishing platform, Visual Technology Services has introduced a component plugin to enable 3D slide presentations. The presentation flow is no longer interrupted by leaving the current slide to use an external viewer, using the PDF3D in PowerPoint® 3D PDF files are viewed right inside any PowerPoint® slide, with 3D rotation & zoom interaction without leaving the presentation. No coding, scripting, or complex setup is required, and it will work with any 3D PDF, not just those created with the PDF3D system.
The PDF3D in PowerPoint is a PowerPoint® menu add-on, so once installed the PDF3D icon is added to the toolbar. By selecting options on the simple plugin wizard, the 3D PDF is linked so it will show within a region of the slide. The PPT and PDF should be placed in the same folder. Prerequisites are only having the Adobe® Reader or Acrobat® installed, and of course PowerPoint® 2007/2010.
This 3D PDF presentation utility is available now. Follow the links from pdf3d.com where an overview page and a free complementary download are available after completing a short registration. This plugin should benefit all parts of the wider 3D PDF community, providing broader exposure to the value of 3D PDF technology.
The PDF3D technical publishing platform provides tools to generate 3D PDF documents, where the 3D PDF document format is feature rich and allows for embedding representations of complex 3D models, driving the need for high compression to allow collaborative communication and distribution, including as email attachments, extending the reach of sharing and collaborating on complex models with distributed teams.
