This excellent tool allows you to convert your PDF documents into virtual books with a 3D page-flip effect. It allows you to save your resulting books in different formats, such as HTML, EXE, and ZIP; and also create versions for mobile devices. It also includes a module for converting many PDF documents into e-books in batches.
The program's user interface is very comfortable and intuitive, and it allows you to do the job without any particular expertise. When working in single mode, you can import an entire PDF file or just a page range, set the render engine to use for this task, the quality and size of the pages, and whether to import some extra elements like links or tables of contents. The import process may take a while depending on the size and the number of pages of the source file and your import settings.
As soon as the import process finishes, you can see exactly how your book will look like, try the page-flip effect and even rotate your book by any angle. To make your book even more attractive, the program includes templates that you can use to add a number of effects, such as background images and sounds, some 3D visual effects, and a series of icons that give access to some functions like zoom, toggle the audio on or off, display an information panel about your book, show thumbnails of pages, and many more.
There is a panel that allows you to modify all the parameters of your current template and then save it as your own. Among those parameters, you can add a logo, enable auto page-flip, select what icons to show in your book, set the flip orientation, etc. Also, the program allows you create a table of contents, in case your original PDF file does not include one.
If you decide to use the batch conversion mode, this will take place in a separate window. Here you can add your source PDF documents individually or by whole folders to create a conversion list, then select the output format and location, the title of the output file, and start the process. Note that if you select HTML as the output format, the program will convert your books into SWF format, which will make them compatible with most web browsers, even those designed for portable devices.
