Can I Embed a campaign on a web page?
« on: December 19, 2009, 08:28:16 AM »
When you create a campaign for a client, you need to get approval from the client before publishing it. The trouble is that if you send a link to the preview webplayer, the client might have their desktop resolution set to something different than the screen was designed for. That makes things look odd.

I was thinking that perhaps there is a way to embed the campaign in a web page and control the screen resolution shown in the embedded code, so that the demo always looked good, albeit a bit smaller perhaps?

Any ideas?

That's a good question.
I guess you could. I never tried it, but if you use IFrames you should be able to.
But you will need to also design the Template for the smaller size screen / IFrame.

That's part of the problem.

When I design a scene, I often use images that are larger than the scene itself. That way I can position them around and get the section that I want to show, where I want it. Or sometimes use a dyanmic effect to mover them. But in the webplayer preview, the upper left corner is looking okay, but anything that is bigger than the orignal scene to right, for example, is still shown.

I don't think Iframes would work and they aren't supported by some browsers anymore (I think). I was hoping for something like a youtube embed that you can set the width and height of the embed. That would cut off the undesirable extra right image stuff.
