I’ve developed a product that allows you to turn your design into ? presentation and even a website. Let’s call it Engine. The design must be performed in a single canvas, which can contain graphics, text, hyperlinks, video and flash animation. The product is aimed primarily at designers and those who already have a ready-made designs in an appropriate style. For those who do not have to design, I will make templates. In the template you can put your own text, images, videos, etc. (by editing the xml or by editing source files).
My first question is: Can I publish these templates as separate items on ActiveDen?
Flash designers will be able to create their own skins for the Engine (buttons, controls etc.). For “non-designers” I’ll create additional skins.
My second question is: Can I publish these skins as a separate items at ActiveDen?
As for publication of Engine itself, I consider 2 options: 1. to publish it on ActiveDen (according to the rules, I’ll need to attach all source files) 2. to make it free and available for download from a special website (no source files)
I beg to answer my questions in the light of each of these two options.
Thank you in advance for your answers, opinions and advice.
I think your best bet is going to be to upload multiple complete templates. There’s no problem with the engine being the same as long as they look unique. I’d be hesitant of uploading the skins on their own as that might be confusing to the buyer.
Many thanks for your reply! Suppose I will upload complete templates (ie each template will contain the engine). But I plan to continually update the engine, make new features, optimize it, update documentation, add examples, skins, etc. I would like to have designers always had to download the latest version, as well as leave comments and suggestions. Can I publish the engine as a separate item at ActiveDen?
P.S. The “engine” is a player/viewer for zooming presentations (such as “Prezi”) with the ability to edit the structure, functionality, navigation, etc.
