Impressive - a tool for pdf-presentations

Impressive is a presentation tool for pdf files. Click >here< to go to the homepage for the project on SourceForge.net

Note: At time of writing last update of project files was 18/9/2008.

Read the documentation to learn about all the options for the program - including the many advanced options: You can play audio files in the background or view full screen video on entry of specific slides, put a timer on slides, set duration of talk, rotate pages, define transitions for specific pages etc. Many of these features require the use of Info scripts (RTFM)

There is also a useful script gettransitions that will export Beamer transitions to Impressive by creating an appropriate Info file Click here to go to the gettransitions site.

Most often the computer used for the pdf presentation will be a 32 bit Windows box. I therefore suggest to download the file Impressive-0.10.2-win32.zip and put it on the usb-pen with your pdf presentation file (and accompanying audio/video files etc.)

In order…
