The Standard edition of 3D PageFlip will allow you to transform your dull and static PDF and Office files into dynamic, three-dimensional e-books and e-magazines with a stunning pageflip effect. The resulting files can be saved as an ePub, Flash/HTML5, EXE, ZIP, 3DP, or a screensaver file, and share it via FTP or e-mail without leaving the application.

Designed to be of help to all types of users, the program comes in a wizard-like interface that will guide you through the few steps required to produce your flipbooks. The first thing you need to do is select a template that will wrap up your flipbook in an eye-catching graphic container. The second step requires you to select a PDF file or an Office document as source for your project. However, though all MS Office file types are supported, you will need to have OpenOffice installed on your system to make use of this option. This means that you can also import ODT, ODS, and ODP files and use them as source for your flipbooks.

The third step is actually the fun part. Here you can enjoy a preview of what your flipbook looks like, and add your own dose of creativity to it. Here you can change the selected template for a new one, define the navigation buttons that the Flash video will contain, select some background audio, define the auto-flip options (when selected), add a logo, etc. Another useful feature that you can add here is the Table of Contents. You need to fill in all the entries manually, just as you do when adding bookmarks to your PDF files.

Once you are happy with how your e-book or e-magazine looks like, you can move to the Publish menu. Here you can choose among a Flash/HTML5 layout for online publishing, a size-friendly ZIP archive for easy distribution, a self-executable EXE file, a 3DP file (you will need to download and install 3DPageFlip Reader to view this one), and a SCR screensaver file. You can even publish your flipbook to an FTP site or send it to clients, friends, or relatives as a ZIP file via e-mail without leaving 3D PageFlip Standard.

As you can see, the entire PDF/Office to flipbook process is a very simple and easy-to-follow one. You just need to follow these few steps carefully to end up with a stunning 3D e-book with a professional pageflip effect.
