QuarkXPress 8 (and QuarkXPress 7 with Quark’s Interactive Designer XTension) lets you build simple or complex Flash animations.
But what if you need some Flash pieces to get you started? Quark has now made all kinds of fully editable buttons and banners and menus available for free download, along with complex items such as eBook readers, audio and video players, a thumbnail picture viewer, and more.
Most of these professionally designed Flash assets come in a variety of colors and styles, and they’re all fully editable! Check them out at Quark’s Flash Magic website.
