Little over a week ago Deep Zoom Composer RC got released. Today we can tell you that the Deep Zoom Composer is now final. This to coincide with the final release of Expression Studio 3. As always, uninstall all existing versions of Deep Zoom Composer before installing the new version.
With Deep zoom Composer you can easily create interactive Deep Zoom experiences. In this final version you will find that the UI has been revamped, and that there is support for Smooth Streaming and analytics tracking. Furthermore you will find that the enhanced player Deep Zoom Composer uses has been ported over to the online DeepZoomPix service (upload to DeepZoomPix directly from the composer) and that there are more templates that contain source files.
Howto’s and Documentation
To make it easier to provide you with direct access to more frequently updated content, the team has decided to point users to online documentation. The documentation on the new features has not been published yet, but will be soon. In the meantime you can check out Janete’s blog posts on Slideshow Support, Creating Menus, and Adding Links and/or, if you want to find out more about the new exporting features, Kirupa’s blog posts about Extensible Templates in Deep Zoom Composer and Improved Collection Support in Deep Zoom Composer. They will continue to blog more about some of these new features, so keep an eye on the team blog for more!
