Tanida Demo Builder 9.1 Minor Release

We listened. We noted. We did. Today we deliver that product to those who we work for—our customers.

This version of Demo Builder brings with it one especially important new feature, the ability to export in HTML5 format. What does this mean for you? It means that using any modern browser you can watch your movies on any device, including cellphones and tablets. The playerbar, menubar, and start-end actions are included in the HTML5 export such that you can't differentiate between the export in HTML5 and Flash.

Tanida Demo Builder 9 has been released !

The wait is over! Demo Builder is ready to surprise once again. It comes armed with an arsenal of new and improved features--all in an effort to allow our users to create movies that are truly professional.

The new version contains a completely new tool named Aggregator. This tool gives you the opportunity to combine muliple projects published in SWF or MP4 files. That is, the Aggregator creates a table of contents (TOC) using the names of the separate modules (SWF,MP4 files).

The Animation Tool has been redesigned to allow for more capabilities,  amongst which is the possibility to sketch your own custom animation.

Responding to our customers' requests, we have integrated a new tool, The Blur Tool. This will serve to help you hide private information, captured during recording, from ending in your final movie.

All of the balloons, notes, buttons, and edit zones have been given a makeover. That being said, we have also brushed up our player bars. Similarly, the Menu bar looks better than ever. The cliparts images have receieved the same makeover. Existing customers will be able to see the results of all of this work by simply re-exporting their existing movies.

When combining all of the above with Demo Builder's improved text rendering and updated GUI, even the most particular of customers are sure to be satisfied.

Tanida Demo Builder 8.2 has been released !

Version 8.2 paves the way forward with a major new feature-- the ability to export in H264/AAC format. This new format brings with it multiple advantages over previous ones.

That is, files exported in H264/AAC format may be:

  • played using HTML 5 video tags
  • played using a SWF player generated by Demo Builder
  • played on the iPad, iPod and iPhone

Further, this new format provides a progressive download feature and an image clarity like no other! Intended to save you time, the progressive download feature allows for the movie to load while it is being viewed!

Tanida Demo Builder 8.1 has been released !

At Tanida, we believe in continuous improvement. That being said, we are always looking to build newer and better versions of our software. This new version, Demo Builder 8.1, is an example of our commitment to this philosophy.

Starting with Demo Builder 8.1 we provide users with an all new tool, appropriately named, 'Zoom Area'. Zoom Area was designed with one goal in mind--to draw the viewer's attention to areas of the scene that are particularly important. Zoom Area may also be used, for example, to emphasize a step or area in the scene that might have otherwise been missed. The Zoom Area also allows for specialized settings to the timing and transitions relating to the zoom effect.

To see how it works in design mode and what it may do for you, please follow these links :

Tanida Demo Builder 8 - 3D Edition has been released !

Demo Builder 8 offers you the possibility of capturing the user's attention with breath-taking 3D effects. Choose to edit your movie in a real 3D environment in order to rotate the entire movie and/or individual objects on the x,y and z axises. Also new, the export to Flash option now employs ActionScript3. Consequently, movie playback is not only harware-accelerated, but it is also much smoother (when compared to those produced by earlier versions). Similarly, you now have the opportunity to export your movie in Video format.This format is ideal for publishing your movies on video sharing websites such as YouTube and MetaCafe.

Tanida Demo Builder version 7.1 has been released

A recent survey on Demo Builder's look shows that most users prefer the clasic interface from version 6 instead of the new interface from version 7. We have decided to restore the clasic interface from version 6 with all the good work from version 7 and create version 7.1.
